Jaguar F-Pace emerges 2017 World Car of the year

Jaguar F-Pace emerges 2017 World Car of the year”

But it wasn't just the World Car of the Year award for the F-Pace, it also won World Car Design of the Year too.

The F-PACE won the WCOTY award from a group of 23 cars and in the final round, the other two finalists that the F-PACE was pitted against were the Audi Q5 and Volkswagen Tiguan.

"The F-PACE is our first ever SUV but it is clearly recognisable as a Jaguar and for it to win the 2017 World Car of the Year trophy vindicates our decision to bring our unique design principles and dynamic qualities to a new sector of the market", said Ian Callum, the Director of Design at Jaguar.

When we first drove the F-Pace previous year, TG's Jack Rix had this to say: "What the F-Pace smacks of is a company that's studied the market, listened to its customers and delivered a product that people are screaming out for".

"The F‐Pace was developed and crafted as a performance SUV With extraordinary characteristics, everyday usability and vibrant design". But the New York International Auto Show put all these negative remarks to rest. The Porsche Boxster/Cayman won World Performance Car award, Mercedes-Benz E-Class won World Luxury Car, and the Toyota Prius Prime secured World Green Car award. Some people thought that the automaker must not experiment with an SUV as it can only excel in exquisite luxury cars.

Flashing back to that Colorado F-Pace first drive event when I initially got my hands on the machine, I also needed only one afternoon behind the wheel to predict it would be Jaguar's #1 seller in a year's time.

That Added gong, only the second time a auto has won the double in the history of the awards, has prompted Jaguar to proclaim the F-Pace "The best and most attractive vehicle in the world".

In 2016, the XE sports saloon was a finalists for World Car Design of the Year title but was beaten by the Mazda MX-5. "This very reporter predicted this victory weeks ago ("...the odds-on pick has to be the Jaguar F-Pace...").

The new World Car of the Year has contributed to record sales growth by attracting new customers to the brand.

BMW i3 was victor of the World Urban Car award.
