Mahmoudia Motors, one of the leading automotive groups for premium car brands in the Kingdom announced that Jaguar Land Rover has kicked off the New Year with a number of regional award wins to complement their growing collection of global accolades for the 12MY range. Since January 2011, Jaguar Land Rover has scooped up over 165 award wins including regional tributes from Wheels, EVO, Automobile Middle East and Middle East Motor Awards.
Ammer Bajjali, Jaguar Land Rover Brand Manager at Mahmoudia Motors stated, "We're incredibly proud that Jaguar Land Rover can add these regional awards to its trophy wall. The 12MY Jaguar and Land Rover fleets have been exceptionally well received by customers in the Jordan and I think we can all look forward to seeing more of these vehicles on the road this year."
The Range Rover Evoque, the newest addition to the Range Rover family has received widespread applause from customers and automotive industry pundits since hitting showrooms across the MENA region in November last year. The Evoque, which expands the appeal of the Range Rover brand to a younger urban conquest audience, has earned over 60 awards worldwide including BBC Top Gear's much coveted 'Car of the Year', along with a spate of regional awards including Wheels magazine's 'Premium 4 x 4', EVO magazine's 'Best Premium SUV', Middle East Motor Awards 'Best Luxury SUV' and Automobile Middle East's 'Best Medium Elegant SUV'.
The Jaguar-Ian Callum design success story continued with a formidable string of awards won by the XKR-S and C-X16, adding to the trophies already won by the XJ, XF and C-X75. First unveiled at the Geneva Motorshow last year, the Jaguar XKR-S is Jaguar's most potent series production car ever, capable of reaching speeds of up to 300 km/h with an acceleration rate of 0-100km/h in 4.4 seconds. Through its combination of GT luxury and incredible performance, the XKR-S has garnered rave reviews from automotive journalists, winning several prestigious awards including Automobile Middle East's 'Best High performance GT' and Wheels magazine's 'Best GT'.
The C-X16 concept vehicle, a small hybrid sports coupe, turned heads worldwide when it was revealed at the Frankfurt Motorshow in September. Like the C-X75, the C-X16's combination of hybrid technology, incredible performance and stunning design has earned it acclaim from a number of automotive publications including EVO Middle East's award for 2011 Concept Car of the Year.
