Jaguar F-Pace

Jaguar F-Pace

What’s fast, fashionable and far from familiar?  The all new Jaguar F-Pace is the fresh Jaguar alternative with four-wheel-drive capability and loads of fancy technology.  Created to go head-to-head with the best sports SUV models, Jaguar has ensured the new F-Pace can match, and in some cases better, its rivals from Volvo, BMW, Lexus, Infinity, Audi and Mercedes Benz.  All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) is a low speed cruise control that aids you to maintain optimal handling in low traction situations.  On All Wheel Drive vehicles fitted with Adaptive Dynamics, optional Adaptive Surface Response (ASR) identifies differences between surfaces to achieve the best levels of grip by adjusting engine and brake settings.  These features add strength to the formidable performance potential that the new Jaguar F-Pace provides.

One of the instant delights that you notice about the new Jaguar F-Pace Petrol SUV is that it feels light on its feet and responsive.  The Jaguar F-Pace design incorporates a lightweight aluminium body that is both stiff and very strong.  Increased weight reduction that the aluminium shell offers blesses the SUV Jaguar with dynamic handling and superior efficiency.  The Jaguar F-Pace is among the lightest vehicles in its class with a near perfect 50:50 weight distribution front-to-rear.  This balance creates a light and agile ride marked with sporty performance.  With a suspension that uses double-wishbone front suspension, an Integral Link multi-link rear axle and coil springs and either fixed or adaptive dampers all-round, the new Jaguar F-Pace has excellent and predictable grip.

When it comes to driving conditions, the new Jaguar F-Pace Petrol models provide Jaguar’s own JaguarDrive Control system with Dynamic Mode for sportier driving, earlier up-shifts in Eco Mode to improve fuel efficiency, and Rain Ice Snow Mode for gentle progress in low grip environments.  AWD models are very capable off-road.

You always feel special in a Jag.  Interestingly, the Jaguar F-Pace takes the BMW X3, Audi Q5 and Volvo XC60 head on.  It’s of similar size, and thus happily hits the competition in areas where it’s likely to hurt.  From the driver’s seat, the low-down position in the cockpit still rides higher in SUV guise, so while the view ahead is a commanding one, the driving feel is definitely sporty.  As you would expect, the Jaguar F-Pace Petrol models have a lovely and luxurious interior with leather upholstery, modern features and elegant style.  Hop into the rear seats, and the raised second row (10 mm higher than the front) gives an impression of space.  Actually, rear seat room for a big bloke is good – above average, in fact.  Luggage space is a very healthy 650 litres, making the F-Pace a very versatile compact SUV.  One of the features of the F-Pace which is pretty cool is the reversible boot floor.  If items are a little messy, you can flip the carpeted side of the boot floor over to the rubber side and, hey presto, you can chuck those muddy boots on-board.  The Jaguar F-Pace interior has a quality feel and nice layout.

So what are the petrol engines in an F-Pace Petrol SUV Jaguar like?  The answer is smooth and swift.  Powered by the latest in supercharging technology, the 3.0-litre V6 has two tunings.  One is at 250 kW and 450 Nm and the other at 280 kW and 460 Nm maximum outputs.  The 250 kW Jaguar F-Pace Petrol SUV is found with R-Sport, Prestige and Portfolio trims.  The 280 kW Jaguar F-Pace Petrol SUV is in First Edition and S variants. Both F-Pace Petrol models can complete the 0-100 km/h dash in under six seconds.  Both are limited to a 250 km/h top speed.  Being linked to a quick shifting eight-speed automatic, the Jaguar F-Pace brings the best out of the supercharged power.

Extensive testing to the tune of 250,000 km has meant that reliability and stop/start cold/hot technology has been given a thoroughly good workover.

Loaded with nearly all conceivable luxury features, the new Jaguar F-Pace Petrol SUV has an impressive standard item list.  Accessories for your new F-Pace include things like carbon fibre wing mirrors and side vents, as well as a set of nice looking roof rails.  For a superbly nice mid-size SUV to drive, the Jaguar F-Pace is an exciting addition to the heavily saturated market place.  You’ll enjoy the fresh new SUV drive.
