Mahmoudia Motors, one of the leading automotive groups for premium car brands in Jordan, announced that Jaguar swept two of the top accolades at the prestigious Car Middle East Awards, which recently took place in Dubai, proving that niche premium automotive manufacturer is still at the forefront of today’s luxury car industry. 

The Jaguar CX75 was proffered the ‘Design and Technology’ award whilst the all-new Jaguar XJ won the prize for the ‘Executive Car of the Year’. The XJ also narrowly missed out on the Grand Prix of the evening, the ‘Overall Car of the Year’ award, ceding victory by one point to the Ferrari 458 Italia. 

Samir K. Rifai, General Manager of Mahmoudia Motors stated, “The all-new Jaguar XJ has grabbed the attention of our customers in Jordan since its launch in June 2010. This award from one of the most respected publications in the Middle East demonstrates the strong following and appreciation that the XJ enjoys not only in Jordan but across the Middle East region.”

The all-new XJ, which underwent a complete redesign by Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum, has also garnered a string of awards including UK Top Gear's ‘Luxury Car of the Year’ and ‘Best High Performance Luxury Car of the Year’ by Automobile Middle East magazine. The Car Middle East Awards judging panel unanimously deemed it the best ‘Executive Car of the Year’, beating the Audi A8 and BMW 5-series. 

Designed as a four-wheel drive range-extended electric two-seater supercar, the CX75 stunned industry pundits and car lovers when it was unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motorshow. Capable of reaching 330km/h and sprinting from 0-100km/h in just 3.4 seconds, the CX75 is powered by Four powerful 145kW (195bhp) electric motors and two state-of-the-art micro gas-turbines. The CX75 blew the judges away with its sleek avant-garde design and use of intelligent technology to delivery performance without compromise.

Mahmoudia Motors provides the full range of Jaguar cars at the Mahmoudia Motors showroom located in Wadi Saqra. Additionally, a Jaguar certified service centre located in Bayader Wadi-Seer is prepared and staffed with qualified technicians and mechanics to ensure quality of maintenance and service provided for all Jaguar owners and fans in Jordan.
