 Drivers, critics and industry media hail Jaguar with automotive awards

Kuwait, May 2014 Jaguar continues to receive automotive accolades for its strongest ever line-up by racking up 8 automotive awards in the last year alone. This impressive figure is in addition to the numerous global awards already on mantle for the luxury British car brand.

Building on its wealth of global accolades, Jaguar received an incredible string of regional awards thanks to its highly acclaimed Jaguar F-TYPE which was awarded “Best Convertible” by Car and Driver ME, EVO ME and Wheels within three consecutive months.

The highly acclaimed two-seater, all-aluminium Jaguar F-TYPE was named “Best Premium Sports Convertible” and “Car of the Year” at the prestigious Middle East Motoring Awards and was also bestowed the same title by Auto Sport, while Automan credited it with the title of “Best Debut 2013”.

And it’s not just the production line up of cars that are sweeping the awards board; the Jaguar C-X17 concept, which made its regional debut at the Dubai Motor Show last year, proved its award worthiness with the coveted “Best Concept” award from EVO Middle East.

Speaking about the spate of regional awards, Hannah Naji, Marketing Director at Jaguar MENA said: “We are extremely delighted and proud of the unmistakable impact our vehicles have made on the media and customers alike. The string of regional awards from such respected publications is testament to our historic ability to constantly innovate and produce vehicles of the highest quality and refinement.

She continued, “The Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible took the region by storm since it was launched and the awards it has achieved further strengthens Jaguar’s expertise in the sports car segment.”
