Whether a coupe or an SUV, the Jaguar F-Pace discovers the best of both worlds. With the heart of the Jaguar brand and all its heritage, the F-Pace certainly is something special.
Starting at AU$73,340, the base model will arrive with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with 132kW of power and 430Nm of torque. The next variant up the ladder is the 30d, powered by a 3.0-litre diesel with 220kW and 700Nm, followed by the 35t petrol which has 250kW and 450Nm of torque. At $103,136, the range topping 35t S receives the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 from Jaguar’s renowned F-Type and is capable of achieving 0-100km/h in 5.5 seconds thanks to a massive 280kW of power and 460Nm of torque.
Inside, a 10-inch touch navigation system comes stock, with the option of also adding a 12.3-inch HD virtual instrument display.. Take note Germans. Technology is evident in every aspect of the F-Pace, with the ability to even unlock the car from an Apple Watch. There is also 650 litres of boot space, which is well beyond major competitors such as the Audi Q5 and BMW X4 with over 100 litres less.
Despite 22-inch wheels, the suspension provides adequate cushioning to dampen bumpy roads. The F-Pace grips well despite some understeer with its all-wheel-drive system, although there is a rear-wheel-drive bias with more than ninety percent of the power heading straight to the rear wheels in normal conditions. Arriving locally mid next year with an affordable entry level price, the MY17 F-Pace will not disappoint.
