The Jaguar F-Pace is a handsome and powerful SUV that's a dream to drive

This F-Pace is the first SUV from Jaguar.

IF I HAD the money I’d buy… a practical sports car, kind of. A luxury SUV with buckets of kerb and badge appeal. A practical family car with lots of power that gets you where you want to go in style and comfort. I’d buy a Jaguar F-Pace.

Why a Jaguar F-Pace?

The F-Pace is the first SUV from British car maker Jaguar. And whilst Jag might be late to the SUV party it certainly has made a grand entrance with this handsome machine.

The cabin quality is excellent, the seats are wonderfully comfortable and there is a brilliant new InControl Touch Pro touchscreen as well as a new all-digital instrument panel too.

With plenty of leg, head and shoulder room all round and a big boot to hold all your gear, families are going to love this car.

Not only that, but Jaguar are known for building cars that are great to drive and the F-Pace follows that tradition with perfectly weighted steering, mature road manners and wonderful handling.

What’s special about this particular one?

This particular model is powered by a V6 diesel, which is a gem of an engine. It is not only powerful – 300hp and 700Nm – it is refined and smooth too. As is the eight-speed automatic transmission to which it is mated. This car also comes on large 20-inch alloys and is the R-Sport model which comes with plenty of kit and exclusive R-Sport body kit.

Need to get off the tarmac? This F-Pace R-Sport model has four-wheel drive and All Surface Progress Control (ASPC), Hill Launch Assist, Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVBB) and JaguarDrive Control to help with your off-road adventures.
