About Jaguar F-Pace
When you’re buying a car, often you may be forced to make a choice between a practical car for everyday needs and a sports car for fun. Ideally, you should get both, but then we’re not all billionaires. But there’s another option that’s available from British automaker Jaguar. You can just get their F-Pace, which is billed as a practical sports car. Believe it or not, but it combines the dramatic aesthetics and sporty handling of a sports car with the efficiency and practicality of a family vehicle.
The F-Pace is an SUV, and it’s the first ever Jaguar SUV in automotive history. It comes standard with a 340-hp 3-liter V6, but you can opt for a supercharged V6 with 380 hp, a turbocharged V6 diesel with 300 hp, or a 2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine with 180 hp.
It comes with a sporty look inspired by F-Type, it’s equipped with lots of advanced technology and a lightweight aluminum architecture, a 40:20:40 split fold seat design, and an impressive boot capacity (that’s the trunk for Americans) of 650 liters.
This is the most affordable trim in the F-Pace lineup, but it comes with a price tag of £35,000. It’s British, remember, so you can make your own conversion computation to dollars. Still at that price you can expect a lot of goodies, and Jaguar sure delivers.
This trim comes with lots of features, including a long list of “InControl” tech features. These include Touch Navigation, Remote Premium, Apps, Wi-Fi, and Protect safety technology. It sports 18-inch alloy wheels, Satin Chrome roof rails, parking aids at the front and rear, and a powered tailgate.
This comes next with a price tag of £37,500. It looks a lot more assertive, and it comes with an exterior sports trim along with specialized sports seats for more exciting road trips.
The look comes courtesy of the R-Sport Body kit, and this time you have Gloss Black roof rails. That matches the Gloss Black side window surrounds. It also comes with jet headlining and bright sports pedals. The metal treadplates come with the R-Sport branding. You also get xenon headlights with LED signature daytime running lights.
This is a great choice for those with a yearning for sportier looks and sportier rides. It’s the SUV for the younger set, or for those who are young at heart.
Then there’s the Portfolio at £40,000. This time, the focus is on stately elegance and luxury. This is a sophisticated SUV for those with refined tastes, and it features a lot of advanced technology.
Now you have slightly larger 19-inch alloy wheels, and like the R-Sport you have the LED signature daytime running lights that come with the xenon headlights. It features the exclusive Jaguar Smart Key System, and that includes keyless entry. There’s also rear view camera for easier parking.
Inside, you get to enjoy your rides with your music blasting from the 11 speakers of the Meridian 380W Sound System. Up top you have a panoramic roof, and under your feet you have premium carpet mats.
Now if you really want a performance Jaguar SUV, then this is your trim at £52,300. You can choose a 300-hp turbo diesel engine or a 380-hp turbo petrol engine. Like the Portfolio, it also has the 11-speaker Meridian 380W Sound System, the Jaguar Smart Key System, and the rear view camera.
What’s different here is that you have 20-inch alloy wheels. You also get the Adaptive Dynamics package that lets you choose the driving mode you want. You can adjust the settings for the suspension, steering, transmission, and the engine.
It looks impressive with the S Body Kit, and you can temper its speed properly with the 350mm brakes with Red brake calipers.
F-Pace First Edition
This is the most expensive of them all, and you’ll need to fork over at least £65,300. That’s because there are very few units available, and it comes with features that don’t appear on any of the other trims.
Here you get 22-inch alloy wheels with sticky, summer-rated Pirelli P Zero tires, adaptive LED headlights with the LED ‘J’ Blade daytime running lights, and so many other exclusive goodies that it’s actually a bargain.
Obviously, Jaguar is a bit late to the compact crossover SUV party, and that’s a typically British understatement. But though it’s late, there’s no denying that the Jaguar F-Pace is great.
Jaguar has managed to combine its dynamic brilliance with impressive practical features. The steering is very sharp and precise, and the turn-in response is terrific. Yet passengers feel comfy inside, and you’ve got ample space for the rear seat and the cargo.
It’s feat worthy of the weapon-maker Q in the James Bond universe. The Jaguar F-Pace deserves more buyers, and it is convincing evidence that the Jaguar brand is a name to be reckoned with in the SUV niche.
