Jaguar Land Rover
Jaguar has won the ‘Car Brand with the Best Features’ accolade at the 2019 Auto Trader New Car Awards.
Unlike other awards, where a judging panel makes the final decision, Auto Trader uses more than 63,000 new car owners to decide who the winners are across the 19 categories.
Jaguar’s in-car tech has impressed drivers with its sophistication and functionality, as it beat rivals Hyundai and BMW to the award.
Some of the voters commented that they were impressed by Jaguar’s range of accessories, wi-fi connectivity, InControl infotainment system and Remote Climate feature powered by the InControl Remote app.
One customer said: “I like the whole package. It looks great, drives well and the automatic gearbox is superb. The option to change modes is brilliant. Very comfortable and huge space in the boot.”
Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director, said this award means more to the business as it is a direct result of the feedback from drivers of the cars, adding:
“Everyone knows that a Jaguar should be luxurious, beautifully designed and excellent to drive but ensuring Jaguar is at the cutting-edge is also a key pillar of the brand.
“From our leading Touch Pro Duo infotainment system to wireless charging and the segment-first ClearSight camera-based interior mirror, we want Jaguar to be leading its rivals in the technology race.”
Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s Editorial Director, said Jaguar owners love the brand and now the features the cars have to offer, adding:
“Connectivity, rear-seat TVs, Meridian audio systems, enhanced security and an array of advanced safety and convenience systems ensure Jaguar is the car brand with the features.”
Land Rover was also represented at the Auto Trader New Car Awards, with the Discovery voted a runner-up in the towing category, while the it ran Tesla close for the ‘Most Loved Brand’ accolade. The Jaguar F-PACE was a runner-up in the ‘Most Fun Car to Drive’ category.
