New Zealand - The Women’s World Car of the Year awards has been announced with the Hyundai Ioniq grabbing the overall prize. The Ioniq also won the Green Car category.

All derivatives in the range were considered and treated as one car for voting purposes – the Ioniq EV, Ioniq Hybrid and PHEV Plug-in Hybrid. The runner-up was the Mazda CX-5.

Sandy Myhre, CEO of the Women’s World Car of the Year: "The car that wins the supreme award has gone through a rigorous test by 25 judges from 20 different countries who are on the panel of Women’s World Car of the Year.

"It's a democratic process and cars that have won categories and the supreme winner really have to stand out."

The jury comprised 25 female motoring journalists from 20 different countries. This year 420 cars were on the first nomination list, whittled down to the top 60. 

Myhre said: "This year, the Hyundai Ioniq was a standout. It's always a tight competition but there were a couple of cars that were ahead of the others in their category, notably, the Ford Fiesta and the BMW 5 Series."
