JAGUAR I-PACE WINS GOLDEN STEERING WHEEL FOR BEST SUV
Jaguar are proud to announce that the I-pace has won the award for the best SUV at the 43rd Golden Steering Wheel Awards.
The prestigious award is Jaguar’s third Golden Steering Wheel win, following the F-TYPE sports car in 2013 and the XF saloon in 2016.
The millions of readers of Auto Bild and their sister publications in over 20 European countries, along with the readers of the Sunday newspaper Bild am Sonntag voted for their favourite cars. The 21 finalists across seven categories were each put through their paces at the Lausitz-Ring circuit with a focus on each model’s driving dynamics, connectivity, design, and total cost of ownership.
After a ruthless final test, the I-PACE triumphed in the mid-size SUV category, ahead of the Audi Q3 and Seat Tarraco and was named the winner by an expert jury of leading motoring journalists, car experts and racing drivers, including Hans-Joachim Stuck and Mattias Ekström.
Commenting on the win, Prof Sir Ralf Speth; Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer, said,
“As part of our ‘Destination Zero’ vision, Jaguar Land Rover is pursuing an ambitious goal: To establish an environmentally friendly closed-loop economy. The Jaguar I-PACE is the clear and creative representation of our vision – an exciting, emissions-free electric vehicle.
“As a British manufacturer of premium vehicles we are delighted to win the Golden Steering Wheel in the world’s most demanding and competitive premium car market.
“This award is one of many prestigious awards the I-PACE has won. We will use this validation to intensify our efforts to offer desirable and highly innovative vehicles to our customers.
“I thank the readers and the experts for rewarding the courage and forward thinking of our designers and engineers with their vote for the I-PACE.”
Its combination of sports car performance, zero emissions, exceptional refinement, and all-wheel drive SUV usability and practicality make I-PACE a truly stand out vehicle and the team at Hatfields are glad to see it get the recognition it deserves.
