Jaguar F-Pace achieves success at World Car Awards 2017


 

At the 2017 World Car Awards, British automobile brand Jaguar F-Pace walked away with two titles; The Best Car in the World and Most Beautiful Car in the World.

 

The winning model in question was the F-PACE, Jaguar’s first performance SUV and the fastest selling global model. In the 13 years of the World Car Awards, the Jaguar F-Pace is only the second to win both awards at the same show. Cruising to victory, the Jaguar F-PACE surpassed its contenders and met the approval of 75 of the most influential motoring journalists from 24 countries.

 

 

Since its unveiling in April 2016, the Jaguar F-PACE has found itself on the receiving end of a number of prestigious honours, including Women’s World Car of the Year, Auto Express’ Car of the Year and the Best Premium Car by Telegraph Cars – in total, over 40 awards in approximately a year, which is undeniably an astounding feat for the British luxury brand.

 

Speaking about the F-Pace, Dr Ralf Speth, CEO at Jaguar Land Rover commented “The F-PACE was designed and engineered as a performance SUV with exceptional dynamics, everyday usability and bold design. Winning this award endorses the talent and great work of our teams that have delivered the world’s most practical sports car and Jaguar’s fastest-selling vehicle.”

 

 

The 2017 World Car Awards is the first success for Jaguar; with the XE Sports Saloon being a finalist at last year’s awards in the Design of the Year category. To claim the victory at this year’s ceremony, the F-PACE triumphed over the Audi Q5 and the Volkswagen Tiguan.

 

Director of Design at Jaguar, Ian Callum, added “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.”

 

 

The World Car Awards panel consists of influential motoring journalists from all over the world. To be awarded the victor, the Jaguar F-PACE saw off the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet and Toyota C-HR as the competition came down to the final three.

 

Speaking about Jaguar’s sensational victory, Juror, Director and Vice-Chairman of the World Car Awards, Mike Rutherford commented “Jaguar has done the unthinkable by first securing the World Car Design of the Year award, then lifting the big one – the overall World Car of the Year trophy. With F-PACE, the British company and its proud and talented workers have taken on and beaten far bigger, wealthier European, Asian and North American rivals.”

 

 

This victory has attracted a multitude of new customers to Jaguar. The Jaguar F-PACE has been designed and engineered to deliver the agility, responsiveness and refinement for which Jaguar has been held in high regard for decades, combined with unrivalled dynamics and every day versatility. In approximately a year, the Jaguar F-PACE has become the most searched Jaguar in the UK, racking up a grand total of 4.4 million page views of content related to F-PACE content. Over 680,000 people take the time to design their own F-PACE online.

 

A quintessentially British brand through and through, the Jaguar F-PACE is designed, developed and built in the brand’s Solihull headquarters. £120m was invested into the Solihull branch, which was part of a £2bn investment in the plant. The branch was also rewarded £5bn of UK supplier contracts to boost the branch’s production.

 

 

Customers purchasing the Jaguar F-PACE are able to choose from a four-cylinder 2.0 litre Ingenium diesel with CO2 emissions, which has CO2 emissions as low as  126g/km to the high performance 380PS supercharged V6 petrol model, which can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 5.5 seconds.

 

The Jaguar F-PACE is available from all Jaguar UK Retailers at a price of £34,730.
