The CEO of Citroën, Linda Jackson received the Woman of Worth Award for 2019. This award is dedicated to the woman who, according to the judges, contributed to the motor industry in the most significant manner in the past year. An award in honour of a jury member who passed away in 2016 from New York, known as the Holly Reich Dream Car Award, was given to the Porsche Taycan. The judges are to name the one car that they would love to have. 

Sandy Myhre while commenting on the activities for women at the Dubai Motor Show said, “Creating time in a motor show specifically for women is a world first. Women’s World Car of the Year has never announced their results live from a motor show so that’s innovative and to be able to interview women driving instructors from Saudi Arabia live on the stage is pioneering. The fact all these things are happening in Dubai in the UAE is highly symbolic.”

The new Range Rover Evoque has now accumulated a total of 224 international awards. It has certainly pioneered the luxury compact SUV market of the world. Professor Gerry McGovern, who is the Chief Creative Officer at Land Rover said, “It’s an honour for the Evoque to be recognized by the WWCOTY jury. With its compact proportions, this characterful vehicle combines refinement and fun to create that all-important emotional connection that customers love.”
