Written By:

Jaguar's first ever SUV, the F-Pace, has been awarded the Women's World Car of the Year 2016 by throwing the second-gen Volvo XC90 off it's throne.

The F-Pace was also selected as the winner in the best SUV/crossover category.

Speaking of the new achievement, Fiona Pargeter from Jaguar Land Rover, said, "We are pleased that the F-PACE has been voted to be not only the best SUV/crossover but also the winner of 2016 Women's Car of the Year awards."

The F-Pace was selected from a list of 294 cars by a panel of 17 judges. This list was short-listed to 32 cars, in six categories before choosing the winner of each category.

In other categories, Honda bagged two awards for the Jazz and the Civic, for the best Budget Car and Family Car awards.

Ford's Focus RS lost the Best Performance car award to its big brother, the Mustang, by just one vote.

The Volvo S90 was crowned to be the winner in the Luxury Car segment, while the Green Car award was taken home by the new Toyota Prius.

This year the committee has introduced a new award - the Holly Reich Dream Car award - paying the tribute Holly Reich, one of the former judges for the Women's World Car of the Year who passed away this October.

This will be a free category where each judge will be nominating a car they dream of owning. This years dream car he McLaren 570S.
