And The Women’s World Car Of The Year Award Goes To… The Mazda3!

The Mazda3 has been declared the 2019 Women’s World Car of the Year.

The compact model was voted by a panel of female jurors from 30 different countries, including two from the UK, who weighed in different factors such as aesthetic appearance, practicality, safety, environmental footprint and value for money.

The big winner was announced at the 2019 Dubai International Motor Show, over the weekend, and aside from the golden medal in the World Car of the Year category, it was also voted Women’s World Family Car of the Year. The Mazda3 managed to beat some very well established rivals from the upper classes such as the Audi E-Tron, Tesla Model 3 and BMW 3-Series.

Review: Is The 2020 Mazda3 More Than Just A Pretty Face?

In the Women’s Urban Car of the Year, the Kia XCeed was declared the big winner. The sporty-looking compact hatchback with a jacked-up ground clearance builds on the new-gen Ceed family, has longer front and rear overhangs and is wider. It also adds plastic body cladding and a sloping roofline, whereas the interior has mostly been carried over and includes an infotainment system up to 10.25-inch in size and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Kia has also bagged the Women’s Green Car of the Year title with the Soul EV.

As for the other three winners, these are the BMW 8-Series, Porsche 911 and Range Rover Evoque. The German GT won the Luxury Car category, whereas the 911 was declared the Performance Car of the Year and the British high-riding vehicle won the SUV/Crossover of the Year.
