More awards for Jaguar
International winning streak continues
Jaguar has started 2011 by winning a pair of prestigious awards to add to the impressive tally it secured last year.
The XJ has received Automobile magazine’s All-Star Award at the North American International Motor Show in Detroit. According to the magazine: “The toughest part about this class is that it’s very hard for any one car to stand out, and yet the XJ manages to do just that, in both its design and its dynamics.”
This latest honour means the XJ has collected more than 20 international awards since it was launched in 2010. It’s been named Best Luxury Car of the Year by Top Gear, and Executive Sedan of the Year by Bloomberg News, as well as receiving Sun Motors’ Car of the Year Award. WORLDWIDE PRAISE FOR THE XF
Meanwhile, the XF has been named Best Executive Car for the fourth year running by What Car? magazine. Editor in Chief Steve Fowler commented: “We love everything about the XF: it looks fantastic, drives brilliantly and makes real financial sense, too.”
Other awarding bodies to have named the XF Best Executive Car in the past year include the JD Power Survey and the Auto Express Power Survey.
Since it went on sale in 2008 the XF has won more than 80 awards. In 2010 these awards came from organisations as far afield as:
• Germany (Best Upper Middle Class Import, Best Cars 2010 Survey)
• Canada (Best Luxury Vehicle, World of Wheels magazine)
• Australia (Best Interior Design Execution, Motor magazine)
• South Africa (Sedan of the Year, FHM)
Also featuring in the Jaguar role of honour is the XK, which came out on top in the Cabriolet and Premium Roadsters category of the Car of the Year Awards in Russia.
And, as a sign that Jaguar has its sights set firmly on continued success, the futuristic electric concept car, the C-X75, crowned a triumphant debut at November’s Paris Motor Show by winning the coveted Car of the Show title.
