Overview

The SUV segment might be a totally new arena for Jaguar, but by the looks of it, the company has managed to do rather well. Globally the F-Pace is joined by the E-Pace and the all-electric I-Pace, creating a strong SUV portfolio for Jaguar which was basically absent from the segment until 2016. The Jaguar F-Pace is the only Jag SUV you can buy in India. And while it shares its platform with the very stylish Range Rover Velar, there’s enough to like about the F-Pace. Let’s take a look.

Exterior

Helping the Jaguar F-Pace create a strong first impression is the SUV’s external appearance. It carries on with the family look, but since it’s sat fairly high off the ground, it looks imposing, to say the least. The usual SUV bits like dual-tone paint scheme or grey wheelarch claddings aren’t to be found. Instead, there’s this seamless single colour body that oozes class. The use of chrome adds to the appearance, without overselling its premium position. The upcoming F-Pace SVR is going to be the performance-oriented offering, and it’s evident from its sharp exterior.Helping the Jaguar F-Pace create a strong first impression is the SUV’s external appearance.

Interior

The five-seat SUV has a familiar cabin. The dashboard layout, for instance, is a reminder of the Jaguar XF and XE. The touchscreen system is also shared with the cars, but what differentiates the F-Pace is its body style. Owing to which you sit high up, even when the seat is at the lowest height. Adding to the luxury, the rear seats on the Jaguar F-Pace can also be electrically reclined. And there’s also a humungous sunroof present on the vehicle as well. The optional 16-speaker Meridian system has what it takes to please the audiophiles, too.

Engine

Shared with the rest of the Jaguar Land Rover line up is a range of four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. The 2-litre diesel engine produces 177 bhp and 430 Nm. An eight-speed gearbox and AWD system are both standards regardless of the engine you choose. The recently launched petrol-powered version of the F-Pace also comes with a turbocharged 2-litre engine but this time it runs on petrol and makes 247 bhp and 365 Nm.

If you’re brave and willing to wait, the company will add an SVR model to the line up as well. The top-spec SUV comes with a 5-litre supercharged V8 engine that in the F-Pace SVR makes 543 bhp and 680 Nm. Through an eight-speed gearbox and AWD system, the engine enables the Jaguar F-Pace SVR to do 0-100 kmph in just 4.3 seconds.

Price and competition

Prices for the performance-focussed Jaguar F-Pace SVR will be announced closer to the launch. The current F-Pace model line is made up of only two variants. The Jaguar F-Pace Diesel has priced at Rs 63.57 lakh, and the petrol isn’t too far off at Rs 63.17 lakh.

In terms of competition, there’s the BMW X5, Porsche Macan, Mercedes-Benz GLE, Volvo XC60, etc. The Jaguar looks amazing, despite it being almost three now.
