With an assertive new exterior, beautifully crafted all-new interior, latest generation Pivi Pro infotainment and the choice of in-line four- and six-cylinder engines including plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and mild hydrid (MHEV) technology, the new Jaguar F-PACE is more luxurious, connected and efficient. The four-cylinder, 404PS PHEV has an all-electric range of up to 33 miles (53km).
The new exterior design gives the award-winning F-PACE performance SUV a cleaner, more assured presence, featuring a new sculpted bonnet, an enlarged grille and a new front bumper. New super 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.
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.
All-new, crafted interior
The F-PACE has an all-new interior 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.
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.”
A series of advanced technologies ensure the health and wellbeing of all occupants. Cabin Air Ionisation improves interior air quality through Nanoe technology, which removes allergens and unpleasant odours. The system now also features PM2.5 filtration, which captures ultra-fine particles – including PM2.5 particulates – to improve occupant health and wellbeing. The customer activates the system simply by pressing the ‘Purify’ button.
Plug-in power and performance
The new 2.0-litre four-cylinder PHEV model produces a combined 404PS and 640Nm 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 CO2 emissions from 49g/km and fuel economy of up to 130.2mpg (from 2.2l/100km) as well as impressive performance figures of 0-60mph in 5.0 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.3 seconds).
When fully charged, the new P400e is capable of up to 33 miles (53km)* of all-electric driving, enabling the new F-PACE PHEV to complete the average UK daily commute of 18.8 miles (30.2km) to and from work, in EV mode without requiring a recharge. Fast Charging (32kW DC) is capable of delivering 0-80 per cent charge in 30 minutes while a domestic 7kW wall box can provide a charge of 0-80 per cent in as little as one hour 40 minutes.
The in-line six-cylinder 300PS diesel engine delivers strong performance from low speeds while returning fuel economy of up to 38.1mpg (from 7.4l/100km) and CO2 emissions from as low as 194g/km. As well as the competitive efficiency, performance is just as impressive with 0-60mph covered in just 6.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds)
Advanced MHEV technology, available on the four- and six-cylinder diesel engines and featured on the six-cylinder petrol powertrains, 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.
Petrol customers can choose between the 340PS or a 400PS version of the 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder producing 480Nm and 550Nm of torque respectively. Both feature the latest engine technologies including an electric supercharger supported by a twin scroll turbocharger and Continuous Variable Valve Lift (CVVL), for a strong combination of refined performance and efficiency. In 400PS form, the new F-PACE is capable of 0-60mph in just 5.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds).
Cutting-edge connected technologies
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% 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.
The intuitive new infotainment system features Apple CarPlay® as standard and allows customers to connect two phones simultaneously via Bluetooth. Android Auto™ and Baidu CarLife are also available as standard depending on market applicability.
The collection of new convenience technologies includes Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) capability, which ensures the performance SUV is always using the latest software. The technology means that owners don’t have to visit retailers to receive software updates for the vehicle.
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.
Jaguar’s commitment to creating strong and lightweight vehicles, continues with the new F-PACE. The aluminium-intensive architecture uses recycled aluminium from closed-loop manufacturing for greater sustainability and is an important contribution towards Jaguar Land Rover’s journey to Destination Zero, a world of zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion.
