The first-ever Women’s World Car of the Year competition ended yesterday. Eight female motoring journalists from seven countries voted for their favourite cars. The winner is the 2010 Jaguar XF !
Over the past year, eight female motoring journalists from Britain, the USA, Canada, South Africa, India, Australia and New Zealand put 21 selected cars to the test. The group and the award were created to educate the world’s car makers about female customers’ requirements.
“We searched a long time to put together a team of female motoring correspondents qualified to vote for the winners. This was no easy task since there aren’t that many female motoring journalists,” says Sandy Myhre, jury chairperson from New Zealand.
All the winners in the four categories were recently presented in London. The Volvo XC60 won the “Family Car of the Year” category. The overall winner of the competition was the Jaguar XF.
