Ford Fiesta wins Women’s World Car of the Year (WWCOTY)

Eighteen female journalists from across the globe voted the Ford Fiesta 1.0l Eco-Boost as the 2013 Women’s World Car of the Year and the supreme winner for 2013. The Fiesta won the economy car category in the finalist voting round and, in the second voting round consisting of finalists only, edged out the Mazda CX5 and the Range Rover.

Commenting on the win, Craig Von Essen, Product and Communications Manager for Ford Motor Company, Asia-Pacific and Africa, said the company was ‘thrilled’ to receive not only the economy car category award but the overall supreme award, “Women pack powerful purchasing power, representing a huge market opportunity. The fact that a respected panel of published and specialist women motoring writers selected the Ford Fiesta 1.0l EcoBoost is a significant accolade as we work to design, develop and market our vehicles, technologies and services in a way that captures the attention of this very influential buying group.”
