Jaguar I-Pace leads winners in The Golden Steering Wheel Awards

The Jaguar I-Pace claimed the mid-size SUV category, while the Audi A1, BMW 1 Series and Toyota Supra were also honoured

Jaguar’s all-electric I-Pace has driven off with more silverware in one of Europe’s biggest new car Awards, The Golden Steering Wheel, run by Auto Express’ sister title Auto Bild in Germany. 

The I-Pace – voted Auto Express Car of the Year for 2018 and World Car of the Year 2019 – beat the Audi Q3 and SEAT Tarraco to win The Golden Steering Wheel in the mid-size SUV category.

Best electric cars on sale

Judges included experts from Auto Bild, racing drivers including Hans Stuck and Sophia Flörsch, German Instagram and YouTube stars, plus Auto Express editor-in-chief Steve Fowler, who presented the winning trophy to Jaguar LandRover’s CEO Sir Dr Ralf Speth.

Other winners across the 11 categories included the Audi A1, BMW 1 Series, Tesla Model 3, Mazda CX-30, Audi e-tron and Toyota Supra, which beat the Porsche 911 and BMW M850i in its category. 

There was some good news for BMW in one of the three reader-voted Awards, though. The 8 Series was voted Most Beautiful Car, while the Skoda Karoq was named Best Car Up To €25,000 and the new Kia XCeed was named best car up to €35,000.

The Golden Steering Wheel Award for Best Innovation went to Michelin for its Uptis airless tyre technology.
