The new Land Rover Defender has been declared the overall winner at the 2021 Women’s World Car of the Year (WWCOTY) awards, beating eight other winners from different categories to the title.

After an all-woman vote by 50 female motoring journalists from 38 countries on five continents, the Defender came top in aspects such as safety, performance, comfort, technology and value for money.





The announcement was made on March 8, which coincides with the International Women’s Day. The WWCOTY Executive President, Marta Garcia, said :

“The Women’s World Car of the Year is the only jury in the world made up entirely of women motoring journalists.

“This gives it enormous value because its decisions represent the liking and preferences of millions of women drivers around the globe.

“But cars have no gender and are not subject to stereotypes so the winners of these awards are, quite simply, the best cars in the world.

She added that :

“The legend has been updated. The Land Rover Defender is no longer just an SUV to cross the Amazon or go into the desert. Its latest reinvention invites you to travel by road in the same comfort as a luxury saloon.

“For this reason, and for its technology and comfort, it has been chosen as the Best Car of the Year by the Women’s World Car of the Year”
