The awards director, Mike Rutherford stated "Jaguar has done the unthinkable by first securing the World Car Design of the Year award and then the overall World Car of the Year trophy".

Jaguar picked up two gongs at the 2017 World Car of the Year Awards, where the F-Pace took the headline title and was also named Car Design of the Year.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class, took home the 2017 World Luxury Car award while the Porsche Boxster/Cayman, won the World Performance Car Award. Interestingly all three finalists for the world vehicle title were SUVs.

The Jaguar F-Pace has been named World Car of the Year by a panel of worldwide motoring journalists. This just goes to show the interest in the SUV segment across the globe and also the rise of a segment that might redefine the automotive industry around the world.

THE Jaguar F-PACE has been crowned the best and most handsome auto in the world after double success at the 2017 World vehicle Awards, scooping the prestigious World vehicle of the Year and World vehicle Design of the Year titles. "This award highlights BMW Group's dedication to sustainable mobility through BMW's first all-electric auto made mainly of carbon fibre", stated Ludwig Willisch, Head of BMW Group Region Americas.

Jaguar Land Rover's F-Pace has flawed two finalists, both from the VW Group: the Audi Q5 and Volkswagen Tiguan to emerge the 2017 World Car of the year. So when the British carmaker ventured into building SUVs, apart from the initial grumbling about the heritage, much was expected from their first ever SUV, the F-Pace. "If this doesn't become Jaguar's best-selling model ever, I'll be stunned".

It is already the most searched Jaguar ever in the United Kingdom with 4.4 million unique page views of F-PACE content since launch and more than 680,000 people taking the time to configure their dream F-PACE online.

Jaguar Land Rover invested £120 million in the Solihull facility to build the F-PACE, part of a total £2 billion investment in the plant and awarded £5 billion of United Kingdom supplier contracts to support its production.

Engine options for the F-PACE range from the efficient and innovative four-cylinder 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel, with Carbon dioxide 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. "This very reporter predicted this victory weeks ago ("...the odds-on pick has to be the Jaguar F-Pace...").
