THE gongs keep chiming for Range Rover’s evocative Evoque.
The women’s version of the World Car of the Year awards has honoured the sleek compact SUV with its top design accolade, best luxury car as well as the outright award. The triple crowns follows a win for the Evoque in the best designs category of the recent World COTY awards and a nod from Carsguide COTY judges for its elegant style.
However, Carsguide judges also noted it has issues with rear visibility and front-side view because of its large wing mirrors.
The 12-woman jury of Women’s World COTY, gave second outright place to the BMW 3 Series and third to Audi Q3.
The voting procedures were audited by accountancy company Grant Thornton.
Director Paul Mccormick says it was a close-run race but there were some clear leaders in each category.
‘‘The results for second and third, however, changed back and forth and with each addition of votes the differing opinions from the judges changed the results with every entry,’’ he says.
Range Rover’s stunning new Evoque has scooped up many awards, including the women’s version of the World Car of the Year
