Having made its debut only in June, the Jaguar XE has already gathered an impressive set of titles including Car of the Year and Best Business Car at the Telegraph Awards, Best New Car at the Fleet World Awards, and Best Large Car at the Diesel Car Magazine Awards. Adding to its niche the Design Award, Jaguar XE was described as ‘A compact exec without compromises’ by the judged.
The all-new Jaguar XF also had a successful evening, winning the Design Award following a poll of Auto Express readers. Arriving in retailers in late August, new XF will offer unparalleled refinement and dynamics, as well as the lowest CO2 emissions of any non-hybrid model in its segment.
Both awards were collected by Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, who said: “It’s been an incredible evening for Jaguar. With XE, our aim was always to do more than just compete with the established segment leaders – we wanted XE to move the game on, to be the best. Winning Best Compact Executive shows that’s exactly what we’ve done.
“The all-new XF presented a serious design challenge. The existing car already looked modern, handsome and elegant, we wanted to reinvigorate the XF without losing any of its identity and I believe we’ve achieved that. I think it’s the best looking car in its class and I’m hugely honoured that the readers of Auto Express agree.”
