The jury of the Women’s World Car of the Year has announced the winning vehicles in all nine categories of its annual competition with the Ferrari F8 Spider named best sport car, the Honda e as best EV and the Peugeot 208 winning the best urban car category.
As the only jury in the global automotive world made up entirely of women, this group of 50 motoring journalists from 38 countries make it clear that these are not ‘women’s cars’ because there is no such thing. They have selected their winners on the key principles that guide car-buyers in general, including safety, value, design and drive dynamics.
The nine category winners were chosen from all vehicles launched during 2020 and, as with all car and motoring awards in the past year, jurors had to make an extra effort to test each vehicle during the pandemic.
WWCOTY was created in 2009 by New Zealand motoring journalist Sandy Myhre. Maggie Barry, Maxine Ashford and Sue Baker are the motoring journalists representing Britain in the WWCOTY group.
One more task remains for the jury, which is to choose the overall WWCOTY 2021, which will be announced on 8 March, International Women’s Day.
