These are the latest in a line of major honours for the F-PACE since its April 2016 introduction.

Although the World Car of the Year awards is now a recognized part of the New York International Auto Show, this year saw the very first award for World Urban Car, a new sub-category presented to reflect the growing rivalry and development in the city and compact automobile sector worldwide.

But it wasn't just the World Car of the Year award for the F-Pace, it also won World Car Design of the Year too. The Jaguar SUV competed with 23 other entries in the same category. This year, vehicles were selected and voted on by an global jury panel comprised of 75 top‐level automotive journalists from 23 countries around the world. Well bagging an award wasn't a smooth journey for this Jaguar.

Ralf Speth, the CEO of Jaguar Land Rover stated that the victory at NY is a result of the enormous talent and hard work on the team that was involved in this project. "Winning this award endorses the talent and great work of our teams that have delivered the world's most practical sports auto and Jaguar's fastest-selling vehicle". "This very reporter predicted this victory weeks ago ("...the odds-on pick has to be the Jaguar F-Pace...").

The Jaguar F-PACE, priced from £34,730, is designed and developed in the United Kingdom and built at the Lode Lane factory in Solihull alongside Land Rover models including the Range Rover, the new Discovery and the soon-to-be-launched new Range Rover Velar. It also comes with a pair of 3.0-litre engines out of which one is petrol whereas the other is diesel. This feature gives Jaguar an edge in front of its rivals.

It is already the most searched Jaguar ever in the United Kingdom with 4.4 million unique page views of F-PACE content since launch and more than 680,000 people taking the time to configure their dream F-PACE online. It goes up to $71,695 for a premium model.
