Range Rover Evoque is Women’s World Car of the Year 2012Tue, 17 Apr 2012 00:00:00 -0700
Range Rover Evoque WWCOTY 2012
The judging panel of the Women’s World Car of the Year has voted the Range Rover Evoque overall winner and Luxury car of the year.
Has there been a car award in the last year for which the Evoque was eligible and didn’t come out on top?
To add to its trophy cabinet the Evoque can now call itself ’Women’s World Car of the Year 2012′ after the judging panel of women journalists from 12 countries voted the Range Rover Evoque the Supreme winner as well as Best Luxury Car 2012.
Runner-up to the Evoque in the ‘Supreme’ stakes was the BMW 3 Series (with which we concur) with the Audi Q3 in third place (which we probably don’t). In the Luxury category second place was taken by the Jaguar XJ and third place by the Audi A6.
The complete list of Women’s Car Awards 2012 were:
Range Rover Evoque 2nd place – BMW 3-series 3rd place Audi Q3
Family car: 1st – BMW 3-series 2nd – Audi Q3 3rd – Ford Focus
Luxury car: 1st – Range Rover Evoque 2nd – Jaguar XJ 3rd – Audi A6
Sports car: 1st – Porsche 911 2nd – Jaguar XKR 3rd – Mercedes Benz SLK
Economy car: 1st – Honda Civic 2nd – VW Up! 3rd – Ford Fiesta
By our reckoning that has to be pushing on 60 awards for the Evoque since it launched, and it’s good to see one of our favourite cars – the Jaguar XJ – coming in a close second in the Luxury category.
As we said when Sandy Myhre launched the Women’s World Car Awards in 2009, we really don’t see much difference between women’s opinions and men’s on this subject. Which either means we don’t need a separate women’s awards for cars at all or women’s opinions on cars are not given sufficient credence.
Take your pick.
