The all new 2011 Jaguar XJ has been named 2011 International Luxury Car of the Year by the International car of The Year Jury.
"We're delighted that the 2011 Jaguar XJ has received this honour," said Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar Global Brand Director. "The all-new XJ is a benchmark in both design and technology, and we're thrilled to receive such an accolade from one of the highest international panel of judges in our industry."
Hallmark adds, "This success, along with the redesigned XK and XF, speak volumes about the future of the Jaguar brand as a leading edge premium car maker."
The International car of the Year Awards were launched at the North American International Auto Show, to honour new vehicles based on the emotional connection between car and consumer. Today, the award is based on lifestyle compatibility and how well automakers achieve that goal.
"The ICOTY Awards are not about power and performance, but rather about personality and passion," said ICOTY Executive Producer Courtney Caldwell.
Priced from £55,500 on the road, the Jaguar XJ is on sale now at Jaguar dealerships throughout the UK.Published 22 April 2011
