The 2016 Women’s World Car of the Year Awards declared the Jaguar F-PACE to be the ‘Supreme Winner’. In addition to this the top accolade, the car was also named as Women’s World SUV/Crossover of the Year.
“We are very proud of this award as female buyers were at the heart of the F-PACE design from day one. Through customer clinics and data we ensured that we created a distinctive vehicle that would appeal to all lifestyles,” says Anna Gallagher, Senior Launch Manager for Jaguar. “Our teams worked hard on the features that appeal to both male and female customers, to deliver the best mix of performance, design and practicality.”
Women’s World Car of the Year judges looked at categories such as safety, value-for-money, aesthetic appearance, storage space, child–friendliness, ease-of-driving, colour, sex appeal and environmental footprint and submitted their personal shortlists. This year 294 cars were nominated by 17 judges from 14 countries. A master list was compiled and judges picked six category winners from the 32 cars that made the grade. They voted once more to make the Jaguar F-Pace the Supreme Winner from the six category winners.
“The awards of Supreme Winner and Best SUV/Crossover in the 2016 Women’s Car of the Year Awards is a great achievement and a true highlight in the continuing F-PACE success story,” said Fiona Pargeter, Head of Global PR Communications for Jaguar Land Rover. “The combination of beautiful design, everyday usability and unrivalled driving experience set the F-PACE apart from the competition and is attracting new customers to the Jaguar brand worldwide.”
