World Car of the Year
The Jaguar F-pace is officially the best and most beautiful car in the world after double success at the 2017 World Car Awards, scooping the prestigious World Car of Year and World Car Design of the Year titles. 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, the F-PACE saw off the competition in a vote of 75 influential motoring journalists from 24 countries. Mike Rutherford, Juror, Director and Vice-chairman of the World Car Awards/world Car of the Year said: “Jaguar has done the unthinkable by first securing the World Car Design of the Year award, then lifting the big one – the overall World Car of the Year trophy. Meanwhile The Prius Prime, a plug-in version of the Toyota Prius petrol-electric hybrid, has been named the winner of this year’s Green Car of The Year award. This year’s award for the plug-in Prius was based on more than its excellent fuel economy and low tailpipe emissions. A key consideration was the use of a major advanced power plant technology (beyond engine componentry) aimed specifically at increasing the vehicle’s environmental responsibility.
