WITH an assertive new exterior and beautifully crafted interior, the newest generation Jaguar F-PACE is more luxurious, connected and efficient than ever before, thanks to new power trains and mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) technology.
The new exterior design gives the award winning F-PACE performance SUV a cleaner, more assured presence, featuring a new sculpted bonnet with a wider power bulge and smoother, more precisely defined surfaces.
An enlarged grille features Jaguar’s heritage logo inspired ‘diamond’ detailing, while the side fender vents now feature the iconic Leaper emblem, demonstrating the exceptional attention to detail found right across the vehicle.
A new front bumper with redesigned air intakes and dark mesh details visually widen the new F-PACE for a more assured dynamic presence. New super slim all-LED quad headlights and daytime running lights deliver increased resolution and brightness.
The F-PACE has a new interior too, with heightened luxury, enhanced connectivity, and greater serenity and refinement. The new cockpit design is bolder, more dynamic and with greater focus on the driver.
A new sporty centre console, faster in profile, sweeps up to the instrument panel and incorporates an optional wireless charger and greater console stowage.
At the heart of the new interior is a seamlessly integrated centrally-mounted 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen in an elegant magnesium alloy casing, which controls the new Pivi Pro infotainment system.
To help drivers access vital information quickly, the new F-PACE also features a new 12.3-inch HD interactive driver display with enhanced graphics and a configurable layout which can show full-screen navigation mapping with turn-by-turn instructions.
It can also show digital dials, media, contact list or infotainment details. Working in conjunction with the optional head-up display technology, the new F-PACE gives drivers all the information they need with least distraction.
The intuitive new infotainment system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard and allows customers to connect two phones simultaneously via Bluetooth. Optional wireless device charging also comes with a phone signal booster.
New seats feature wider cushioning, new massage functions and improved heated and cooling areas. An embossed Jaguar Leaper features on the headrests on selected models. ‘Est.1935 Jaguar Coventry’ upholstery tags highlight the brand’s heritage.
The new F-PACE is available with MHEV technology on selected engines for the first time, and all models feature intelligent all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmissions, with paddle shifters.
A 2.0-litre 4-cylinder 183kW Ingenium petrol engine kicks off the range, producing 365Nm of torque and delivering 0-100km/h in 7.3 seconds. Fuel economy sits at 9.3-litres/100km.
An inline 6-cylinder 221kW diesel engine delivers strong performance from low speeds while returning fuel economy of up to from 7.4-litres/100km. As well as the competitive efficiency, performance is just as impressive with 0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds.
The new diesel engine meets stringent emissions targets thanks to a raft of advanced technologies, series sequential turbos and an advanced after-treatment system to make it one of the leading diesels in the world.
Petrol customers can also choose a 294kW 3.0-litre inline 6-cylinder that producing 550Nm of torque.
Featuring the latest engine technologies including an electric supercharger supported by a twin scroll turbocharger and Continuous Variable Valve Lift, it offers a strong combination of refined performance and efficiency.
The new F-PACE chassis has been updated to support the introduction of new electrified engines, when they become available, as well as enabling the latest JaguarDrive control and new auto vehicle hold function.
Segment-first active road noise cancellation technology constantly monitors vibrations from the road surface and calculates the opposite phase sound wave needed to remove the noise heard by the occupants.
This means quieter levels within the cabin and improved refinement that helps to reduce fatigue, commonly associated with prolonged exposure to low-frequency noise.
Engine noise cancellation isolates the cabin from unwanted engine noise to further enhance the sense of tranquillity.
Customers can choose from R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic SE and R-Dynamic HSE specification packs. Also optional on all models is a Black Exterior Pack. Pricing starts from $74,990 through to $109,150 plus on road costs.
