Welcome to the Jaguar XF Forum.
sooo last year...
if they had picked the F-Pace's obese(r) sister, the Velar, even the dumbest might have started to wonder if these 'esteemed' predominantlly US/UK hacks and their 'world' prize were bent, hence the award to a real car.
World car of the year 1818? Pre-electricity?:
No real buyer would buy that rubbish.
'World Car of the Year' is now one and a half seconds off the pace in just over a year:

Autocar reckons the X4 is an Evoque, and so presumably E-Pace, competitor, although it's almost a foot and a half longer and has a six-cylinder engine:
'Rivals Porsche Macan, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Land Rover Evoque'
No one but the JLR trolls desperately posting on the 'fugly X4' believes this transparent smearing crap anymore.
The new X4 is just another product from the competition that is miles ahead of the obsolete by any other company possibly save FCA product offering of JLR, all rooted in the first decade of this century, hence the huge performance, refinement, (real) fuel economy etc discrepancy.
