We are delighted to announce that today (12th April 2017), the much talked about and a favorite in Ireland the Jaguar F Pace has won the best and most beautiful car in the world after a double success at the 2017 World Car Awards.
The Jaguar F Pace has enjoyed fantastic success since its launch quickly becoming Jaguar's fastest selling model and is only the second vehicle to claim this historic double award in the 13 year history of the awards.
To win the F-PACE fought off competition in a vote of 75 influential motoring journalists from 24 countries.
Dr Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO, said: "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”.
Mike Rutherford, Juror, Director and Vice-Chairman of the World Car Awards/World Car of the Year said: "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."
The F-PACE is Jaguar’s first performance SUV and has contributed to record sales growth by attracting new customers to the brand.
Engine options for the F-PACE range from the efficient and innovative four-cylinder 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel, with CO2 emissions as low as 126g/km* to the high-performance 380PS, supercharged V6 petrol model that can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 5.5 seconds.
The last 12 months have seen the launch of three completely new product lines, and successful growth across many of Jaguar's existing products. Sales are still increasing strongly and Jaguar is now Europe’s fastest-growing car brand.
