Before moving forward, let's first know a bit about Women's World Car of the Year. It is the only award group around the globe that comprises only women automotive journalists. Its objective is simple, i.e., to choose the best car of the year. Explaining WWCOTY, the organisation statement read, "These are not ‘women’s cars’ because there is no such thing. Instead, cars are chosen based on the principles that guide all consumers, including safety, quality, price, design, driving dynamics, and environmental impacts.”

This year WWCOTY made up for the 11th edition of the awards and it was headed by 50 prominent female automotive journalists, from 38 different countries.
