Other top performing BMW models included the BMW X5 Sports Activity Vehicle with 37 percent growth and BMW 5 Series with 15 percent growth.
Commenting on the impressive performance of 2012, Mohammed Kandeel (pictured), General Manager of Alfardan Automobiles, said: “Our strategies, planning, employing the best people and ensuring the highest levels of customer satisfaction have clearly paid off as shown by these remarkable results. This was combined with the launch of six beautifully-designed and technologically-advanced new models during 2012 which helped drive our sales growth upward.”
