Ford Mustang Wins Women’s Performance Car of the Year


The sixth-gen Ford Mustang just hauled home another award after being named the Women’s Performance Car of Year in 2016.

An obscene 294 cars were up for the Women’s World Car of the Year awards, as determined by 17 judges in 14 different countries according to the criteria women use when car shopping. WWCOTY has the distinction of being the only vehicle awards granted by a panel of exclusively of female automotive writers.

“Ford Mustang is surprisingly loved by women who are after a sexy, sporty, masculine car that turns heads,” said Juliet Potter, Women’s World Car of the Year jury member from Australia. “Combining the car’s silver-screen celebrity status with real-life practicality, Mustang screams, ‘I am in control!’ and delivers the same behind the wheel with above-average grip and suspension.”

In fact, Ford took the big prize along with honorable mentions as the Focus RS lost out on the performance crown by just one point.
