Jaguar F-Pace Finally Debuts at IAA

Jaguar F Pace Official 0 600x388 at Jaguar F Pace Finally Debuts at IAA

We’ve been through a lot with the Jaguar F-Pace, as the company decided the public needs to be properly teased before they get to see their new SUV, which, if we’re honest, looks like a jacked-up XF. What was all that fuss for?

That said, Jaguar F-Pace is a damn good SUV featuring very clever engineering guaranteed to make the car the winner of whatever head to head test it enters, except perhaps against its royal brother, the Range Rover. The F-Pace comes with a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system with its own version of Adaptive Surface Response and All-Surface Progress Control.

The new Jag SUV is a dynamic car though, and you get the sense it’s been built more for on road use than off it. Jaguar F-Pace uses the firm’s advanced Lightweight Aluminium Architecture and comes with double-wishbone front and Integral Link rear suspension. What’s more, it’ has F-Type-derived chassis technologies including Torque Vectoring, Adaptive Dynamics and Configurable Dynamics. This is all sports car stuff.

Engine-wise, the new F-Pace launches with a 180PS 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel in its base model, plus two V6 units including a supercharged 380PS 3.0-litre V6 petrol (0 to 60 in 5.5 seconds), and a 300PS 3.0-litre V6 diesel (700 Nm of torque). The highlights of equipment include InControl Touch Pro infotainment, 10.2-inch tablet-style touchscreen, WiFi hotspot, Virtual 12.3-inch HD instrument cluster with four visual themes and full-screen 3D navigation display.

2016 Jaguar F-Pace is now available to order, starting at £34,170 in the UK.
