LOS ANGELES, CA, NOVEMBER 17 - The 2011 Jaguar XJ kicked off the 2010 Los Angeles International Automobile Show by collecting two of the most prestigious automotive media awards of the year from AUTOMOBILE Magazine and Popular Science.
The 2011 Jaguar XJ went on sale around the world this past spring and has helped drive Jaguar's US sales to a 16 percent increase in 2010 (October YTD). The Jaguar XJ is designed, engineered and manufactured in the United Kingdom.
"Since its launch this year the Jaguar XJ has wowed critics and customers alike with its eye-catching design, lightweight aluminum body and stunning performance," said Managing Director for Jaguar Cars Mike O'Driscoll. "It is gratifying that automotive experts, who test every new car from our competitors, have selected the Jaguar XJ as one of the best. These awards at the L.A. Auto Show are a great follow-up for Jaguar to the recent Paris Motor Show, from which AutoWeek Magazine selected the Jaguar C-X75 Supercar Concept as its Best in Show."
In selecting the 2011 Jaguar XJ as its AUTOMOBILE Magazine Design of the Year, the magazine's Design Editor, Robert Cumberford, said, "The 2011 model is gloriously and magnificently different from the forty-two-year-old XJ design template. It's powerful, refined, aerodynamic and retains the aluminum structure of the previous model. The all-new XJ picks up XF styling cues, but has its own characteristics that will likely evolve further in succeeding generations, following the highly successful design program of Jaguar founder, Sir William Lyons. The Jaguar XJ is a truly worthy Design of the Year."
Popular Science Magazine
In selecting the 2011 Jaguar XJ as a Popular Science Best of What's New, Popular Science magazine Editor-in-Chief Mark Jannot said, "For 23 years, Popular Science has honored the innovations that surprise and amaze us - those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our views of what's possible in the future. The Best of What's New Award is the magazine's top honor, and the 100 winners - chosen from among thousands of entrants - represent the highest level of achievement in their fields."
Each year, the editors of Popular Science review thousands of products in search of their top 100 tech innovations of the year; breakthrough products and technologies that represent a significant leap in their categories. The winners - the Best of What's New - are awarded inclusion in their much-anticipated December is sue of Popular Science.
