The jury of the Women's World Car of the Year has announced the winners in each of nine categories. These vehicles represent excellence in their segments based on safety, comfort, technology, and value for the money.

This is the 11th year for WWCOTY, a team of 50 motoring journalists from 38 countries spanning five continents. It is the only jury in the automotive world composed exclusively of women. It includes India’s Renuka Kirpalani, editor of the Autocar India show.

This year’s new voting methodology started with choosing the three best models in each category before narrowing those picks down to the individual winners. Eligible vehicles were launched between January and December 2020. As in previous years, votes were certified by the independent auditor Grant Thornton New Zealand.

This year, voting was more complicated due to the pandemic, which limited each juror’s ability to drive. Despite the challenges, jurors made an extra effort to get behind the wheel of these vehicles to evaluate them in time for voting.

One more round of voting remains. Jurors will now choose the Best Car of the Year from among the nine category winners. The results will be announced on March 8 – International Women's Day.
