It's a double celebration for Jaguar after their F-PACE landed two top titles at the World Car of the Year Awards this week.

The performance SUV is the fastest selling model Jaguar has produced.

After it began in Paris, the road to the 2017 World Car of the Year, which ended at the New York Auto Show, where the big winners in each six categories were announced saw F-Pace walking home with the most important crown.

That's not the only success for the Jaguar F-PACE as it has also won the World Car Design of the Year category.

Nabbing the coveted award wasn't the Jaguar F-Pace's only achievement, as it was also crowned the 2017 World Car Design of the Year victor, where it had to battle with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet and the Toyota C-HR.
