The Range Rover Evoque has strutted its way into the top spot of the 2012 Women’s World Car of the Year awards, proving its wares against a list of female-focused criteria.

The Range Rover Evoque SUV was crowned Supreme Winner after accruing the highest number of votes from a judging panel comprising female motoring writers from 12 countries.

Divided into four categories – Family car, Luxury car, Sports car, and Economy car – the Women’s World Car of the Year is based on a criteria of safety, value, aesthetic appearance, storage space, child-friendliness, ease of driving, colour, sex appeal and environmental footprint.

According to the WWCOTY website, “The winning car may not reach 0-100km/h in less than so many seconds or have eye-popping Newton metres of torque. But it will be a car that appeals very strongly to women.”

The BMW 3 Series and Audi Q3 finished in first and second place, respectively in Family cars, with the Ford Focus claiming third.
