The new exterior design features a new sculpted bonnet with a wider power bulge and smoother, more precisely defined surfaces. The new bonnet also reduces the number of shutlines on the front of the car.
An enlarged grille features Jaguar’s heritage logo-inspired ‘diamond’ detailing, while the side fender vents now feature the Leaper emblem. A new front bumper with redesigned air intakes and dark mesh details visually widen the new F-Pace..
New slim all-LED quad headlights with ‘Double J’ Daytime Running Light (DRL) signatures, which are available with optional Pixel LED technology, deliver increased resolution and brightness. With Adaptive Driving Beam capability, which evaluates the road ahead and automatically adapts the high beam light to mask oncoming traffic or traffic signs, the system can create varying light beam patterns by selecting different LED segments to optimise visibility and minimise risk of distracting other drivers.
Premium LED technology is fitted as standard across the range and is available with Auto High Beam Assist on SE and HSE models. The technology uses the forward-facing camera to automatically switch between high and low beam, reducing risk of dazzling oncoming drivers. Animated Directional Indicators are also available on all models when fitted as part of additional linked options.
At the rear, new slimline lights feature Jaguar’s double chicane graphic – first previewed on the all-electric I-Pace – to accentuate the width of the vehicle. The new bumper design and sculpted new tailgate also add visual drama and deliver a more confident appearance.
In R-Dynamic specification, the new F-Pace features a series of distinct design elements for a more performance-focused look, while all models are available with the additional Black Exterior Pack, which delivers an even more dynamic appearance with bespoke elements finished in Gloss Black.
Julian Thomson, Jaguar Design Director, said: “The new F-Pace is dynamic and assertive with an elegant stance on the road – it represents a significant development of Jaguar design language. The heightened luxury and attention to detail inside the F-PACE with seamlessly integrated state-of-the-art technologies ensure both driver and passengers feel a real sense of occasion whenever they get in the vehicle.”
New door casings, featuring a new 360-degree grab handle, provide easier access and increased storage for drinks bottles and other items, while the electric window switches are moved down from the top of the door roll, putting them within easier reach of occupants.
New seats feature wider cushioning, new massage functions and enhanced coverage of the heated and cooling areas. An embossed Jaguar Leaper features on the headrests of selected models.
Plug-in power and performance
The new F-Pace is available with the P400e PHEV powertrain as well as the latest four-cylinder and new in-line six-cylinder petrol and diesel Ingenium engines. Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology is also available on selected engines for the first time. All
F-Pace models feature intelligent all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmissions. The full powertrain range is:
- 161bhp MHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, AWD
- 201bhp MHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, AWD
- 296bhp MHEV 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, AWD
- 247bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, AWD
- 395bhp MHEV 3.0-litre six-cylinder e-s/c and turbo, eight-speed automatic, AWD
- 398bhp PHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, AWD
The new 2.0-litre four-cylinder PHEV model produces a combined 398bhp and 472 ft lb from its petrol engine and 105kW electric motor. The advanced electric motor is powered by a 17.1kWh lithium-ion battery and helps contribute to CO2emissions from 49g/km and fuel economy of up to 130.2mpg as well as impressive performance figures of 0-60mph in 5.0 seconds.
When fully charged, the new P400e is capable of up to 33 miles of all-electric driving, enabling the new F-Pace PHEV to complete the average UK daily commute, of 18.8 miles to and from work, in EV mode without requiring a recharge.
MHEV technology, available on the four- and six-cylinder diesel engines and featured on the six-cylinder petrol powertrain, uses a Belt integrated Starter Generator (BiSG) to harvest energy usually lost when slowing and braking. This energy is then stored in a separate 48V lithium-ion battery before being intelligently redeployed to assist the engine when accelerating away, as well as delivering a more refined stop/start system.
With MHEV technology, the next-generation 161bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine achieves CO2 emissions from 163g/km and fuel economy of up to 45.4mpg.
The in-line six-cylinder 296bhp diesel engine returns fuel economy of up to 38.1mpg and CO2 emissions from as low as 194g/km.
The new diesel engine meets stringent emissions targets, including Euro 6d-Final, thanks to a raft of advanced technologies.
For petrol customers, the 395 bhp 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder engine produces 406 ft lb of torque and features the latest engine technologies. An electric supercharger supported by a twin scroll turbocharger and Continuous Variable Valve Lift (CVVL) deliver 0-60mph in just 5.1 seconds.
Finally, the 2.0-litre four-cylinder 247bhp Ingenium petrol engine produces 269 ft lb of torque, delivering 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and CO2 emissions from 209g/km with fuel economy of up to 30.4mpg.
All engines are paired with Jaguar’s eight-speed automatic gearbox, which can be controlled using the steering wheel shift paddles for added driver engagement.
Colin Kirkpatrick, Chief Product Engineer, Jaguar, said: “The new Jaguar F-Pace delivers a powertrain to suit all customers. Our next generation PHEV system delivers great fuel efficiency and low running costs, while the all-electric range of up to 33 miles is enough to cover the daily commute for most customers. The extensive powertrain choice includes our latest Ingenium petrol and diesel engines which feature advanced technologies and provide the perfect blend of performance, refinement and efficiency.”
All-wheel drive is standard across all F-Pace models and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics provides rear-wheel drive biased performance, with the ability to vary torque to individual axles almost instantly depending on conditions.
The new F-Pace features Jaguar’s advanced Electronic Vehicle Architecture, dubbed EVA 2.0, which supports a range of new technologies to ensure the future-ready vehicle is always connected and always up to date.
The latest Pivi Pro infotainment technology is accessed through the all-new 11.4-inch curved glass HD touchscreen. Key benefits include enhanced clarity, the screen is three times brighter and 48 per cent larger than the previous 10-inch screen, and the simplified menu structures allow drivers to access or view up to 90 per cent of common tasks from the homescreen in two taps or less.
