JAGUAR F-PACE VOTED 2017 BEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL CAR IN THE WORLD

It’s easy to see why Jaguar’s first performance SUV, the Jaguar F-PACE has won both the 2017 World Car of the Year and the 2017 World Car Design of the Year awards. With more than 46,000 sold globally since its April launch, F-PACE is Jaguar’s fastest selling vehicle ever, and has helped Jaguar Land Rover to achieve its best ever full-year global sales, selling 583,313 vehicles in 2016 – up 20% on the prior year.

As well as F-TYPE inspired exterior design and sporty handling, F-PACE offers a spacious interior with impressive efficiency. For instance, as well as the high-performance 380PS, supercharged V6 petrol model that can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 5.5 seconds, F-PACE’s wide range of engine options include the efficient and innovative E-Performance Ingenium 2.0 litre 4-cylinder Diesel, which delivers power and refinement, while achieving CO2 emissions from as low as 126g/km*.

The Jaguar F-PACE is only the second vehicle to claim the historic double in the 13-year history of the World Car Awards. To win the pair of trophies, F-PACE saw off the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet and Toyota C-HR in the final three, in a vote of 75 influential motoring journalists from 24 countries.

Jaguar Land Rover CEO, Dr Ralf Speth 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.”
