Women’s World Car of the Year Award

It may not be as widely recognised as What Car: Car of the Year Award or Top Gears’ Annual Awards, but the Women’s World Car of the Year is an equally important accolade to all those female drivers out there.

Judges vote for their favourite family car, luxury car, sports car, economy car and overall supreme winner using a 10-strong voting system - awarding points to their preferred choice.
