JAGUAR WINS BIG AT THE SME COMPANY CAR OF THE YEAR AWARDS

Jaguar scored a hat-trick of victories at the SME Company car of the Year Awards. The Jaguar XE was named ‘Company Car of the Year’ and ‘Best Large Company Car’, while the XF won the ‘Best Director’s Company Car’ award.

Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director responded to Jaguar’s triumphs at the awards by saying, “The XF has managed to improve on the old model in almost every single way. It’s better to drive, better quality, comes with more technology, offers more space and is more efficient. We’re glad to see the judges of SME Company Car of the Year Awards agree.”

Hicks added, “We had hoped that the Jaguar XE would appeal to company car users with its class-leading running costs and value-for-money service plans and we are delighted with just how warmly it has been received.”

Ralph Morton, Editor of Business Car Manager said, “The Jaguar XF wins: great price, good design and desirable. What more could an SME director want from a company car? Apart from having it in their slot in the company’s car park. No doubt the order’s on its way…”

Morton added, “As well as the appealing sporty looks, the Jaguar XE in 163PS 2.0d R-Sport trim, won because of its 75 mpg combined fuel economy and CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km thanks to its British built Ingenium engine.”

He continues, “It really is a case of having your cake and eating it with this version of the Jaguar XE: it combines low running costs and low tax bills with an equally high level of driver satisfaction and real company car appeal. No wonder our panel of independent judges also gave this Jaguar the top accolade – the SME Company Car of the Year. Congratulations to Jaguar. A car to really make a difference to the SME business sector.”
