Having already garnered more than a few international accolades, this latest title sits alongside such honours as 2012 World Car Design of the Year.
"The Evoque is very good value considering exceptional fit, finish and features. A bold form that is turning heads", the AIDA judging panel said of Land Rover Australia’s new top-selling model.
The category is open to all products and components in the industry, with the BRP Can-Am Spyder Roadster three-wheeled motorcycle, DAF XF105 prime mover, BRP Sea-Doo GTI personal watercraft and the Intervolt programmable voltage sensing relay also receiving awards.
Presented by industry body Good Design Australia, the AIDAs are Australia’s longest-running design recognition program.
Winners were chosen by a panel of Australian and international design experts, who assessed each entry against a common criteria which considers innovation, form, function, quality, safety and sustainability.
The Rio's dismissal is noteable: while it couldn't pass muster with the AIDA judges, Kia's new light hatch proved handsome enough to take a win in the prestigious Red Dot Design Awards in Germany this year.
