And it is the first SUV to claim the title at the world level motor show.
As per the theglobeandmail.com following content says
“All three contenders for the World Car title were SUVs. Jaguar beat the Audi Q5 and Volkswagen Tiguan for the overall title. Not all contenders have to be sold in Canada or America, but all are sold on at least two continents.
The F-Pace is an exceptional vehicle, and deserves both its awards. It was at the top of my ballot, although it’s too early to know if Jaguar’s bugbear of reliability has been put to rest.
Before the launch, Jaguar was criticized for being late to market with its compact SUV – almost all other automakers had released vehicles into that highly competitive segment.
The launch of the F-Pace gave Jaguar a huge boost in Canada, and this year, sales for the company have already tripled.”
In the year 2016, The XE sports saloon was a finalist at the World Car Design of the Year 2016. F-Pace came over the top contenders like Audi Q5 and Volkswagen Tiguan to claim the 2017 the award. The British make F-Pace lead the show ahead of Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet and Toyota C-HR in the final three.
