2011 Scottish Car of the Year

The all-new 2012 Range Rover Evoque is building an impressive array of awards and more are in store as we move into the new year and the 2011/2012 auto show season. The Evoque has already taken the Auto Express Car of the Year and Best Compact SUV awards and has also been nominated as a potential North American Truck of the Year. The North American Truck of the Year will be announced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 9th. If all goes as expected, this should be just the tip of the accolades iceberg.

 

2011 Scottish Car of the Year

The most recent award bestowed upon the Evoque is the 2011 Scottish Car of the Year. Along with the Car of the Year nod, the Evoque also scored the top spot in the Compact SUV category. The award is administered by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW), whose members had the following to say about the Range Rover Evoque:

  • “Ideally suited to the unique driving conditions found in Scotland.”
  • “The need for 4x4s is still as strong as ever in Scotland.”
  • “Excellent economy and affordable running costs.”
  • “One of the most desirable cars money can buy.”

If you had to pick a handful of statements that sum up the Evoque, you would be hard-pressed to find better ones. Members of the ASMW found the Evoque so enticing that it received more votes than any other previous winner. Speaking of which, Land Rover is no stranger to the Scottish award. The 2010 Land Rover Discovery 4 (LR4) was the top contender in 2009.

Additionally, Jaguar picked up three awards this year, including Best Diesel Car (Jaguar XF 2.2d), Best Sports Car (Jaguar XKR-S), and Most Iconic Car (E-Type Jaguar).
