Women's World Car of the Year

WINNING CARS ANNOUNCED FOR 2014

 

Judging has been completed for the 2014 Women’s World Car of the Year.   Women motoring writers from 15 countries have voted for their favourite cars in six categories.

 

The Winners are:

Family Car:                                                Audi A3 saloon

Sports Car:                                                Audi S3

Luxury Car:                                                Mercedes-Benz S-Class

SUV:                                                           Range Rover Sport

Budget Car:                                               Honda Jazz (also known as) Honda Fit

Green Car:                                                 Tesla Model S

 

The 2014 Women’s World Car of the Year is…               Mercedes-Benz S-Class

 

 

 

Judges vote on ten different criteria which remain the same in each category. The supreme winner is the car that wins its particular category and collects the most overall points.

 

The Audi A3 saloon just nudged out the VW Golf Variant/Sportsvan for the Family Car award. The Audi S3 barely pipped the BMW M4 in the Sports Car category. The closest vote of all came in the SUV category with the Range Rover Sport inching slightly ahead of the Porsche Macan.
