The first SUV built by Jaguar does not betray the sporty image of the brand, thanks to the streamlined and gritty line.
Built on the same aluminum platform (suitably modified) of the sedans XE and XF, the Jaguar F-Pace offers a spacious and practical interior, as well as a luggage compartment of considerable capacity and well exploited. The presence of aluminum or wood inserts and leather seats (optional or standard, depending on the equipment) adds a lot of class to the interiors, but they have a somewhat trivial dashboard and some plastic details (like the lower area of the door panels and the drawer) of economic invoice. In two-wheel drive versions, rear-wheel drive, but even in the 4WD, most of the engine’s driving force is supplied to the rear wheels. If necessary, however, part of the driving torque (up to 50%) is automatically diverted to the front, when the conditions of the bottom are less than perfect.
You can then have, as an option, the system that automatically adapts the response of the car to the type of ground (deep snow, ice, rock, dirt and so on) ensuring a behavior in difficult situations surprising for a “sport” SUV. Yes, because on the asphalt the F-Pace also offers a precise, dynamic, very pleasant guide; the performance is sufficient with the 2.0 diesel oil from 179 horses and good with the 2.0 twin turbo 240 horses. But the 3.0 is really on another planet: the diesel has a powerful thrust and is very quiet, while the petrol versions stretch up to almost 7000 rpm with considerable grit and with a strong exhaust sound (for enthusiasts) intoxicating.
