Jaguar C-XF wins Car Styling award

The Jaguar C-XF has been named ‘Concept Car of the Year’ by Japanese design magazine Car Styling. It was selected for its use of new materials expressing a sense of high quality both in the exterior and in the interior.

From the official Press Release:

Jaguar C-XFThe Jaguar C-XF has been named ‘Concept Car of the Year’ by leading Japanese design magazine CAR STYLING.

Jaguar’s Design Director, Ian Callum said: “It is a great honour for Jaguar to receive this award from such a reputable journal like CAR STYLING – a magazine that all designers have grown up with for the last 30 years.

My colleague Julian Thomson (Chief Designer for Jaguar Advanced Design) and I both believe it has always demonstrated the very best in our profession, so it makes us particularly proud to receive this recognition for the C-XF.”

The C-XF first received recognition in January of this year when it was voted ‘Star of the Show’ by Autoweek magazine at the Detroit Auto Show.

Jaguar C-XF Concept - Interior sketchAkira Fujimoto, editor-in-chief at CAR STYLING commented: “The C-XF was chosen for this award as it tries to achieve a sense of high quality by using new materials and new sensibilities, not only on the exterior but also in the interior.

"At CAR STYLING we can foresee that this comprehensive, high level of styling will be fully reflected in the new-generation of Jaguars.”

Designed and built in the Midlands by the same teams that produced Jaguar XK in 2006 – the C-XF concept was a precursor to cars such as the new XF, revealed for the first time at Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The XF is the next iteration of Jaguar’s new design language applied for the first time to a luxury saloon.

"Fusing sports car styling and performance with the refinement, features and space of a luxury saloon, the XF embodies the Jaguar philosophy of creating beautiful, fast cars."
