Jaguar’s First Ever 4x4!
The words Jaguar and family car have never before been in the same sentence but that is all about to change as Jaguar offer their first ever 4x4 ………
2015 is an exciting year for Jaguar they are celebrating their 80th year alongside their 5th successive year of sales growth with an annual increase of 9% to boast about. So with the public’s new found love for Jaguar combined with the explosion of popularity in the SUV market and surely Jaguar are well and truly on the road to success!
Jaguar have revealed their new 4x4 will be called the F-PACE and will be on sale in 2016. The guide price is around £38,000 so what will you get for your money?
Jaguar have a new generation of green, fuel efficient two-litre petrol and diesel engines on offer that will reach a top speed of 186mph with CO2 emissions below 100g/km with fuel efficiency thought to be around 70 mpg. There is a more powerful 3 litre V6 engine that is currently used in the Jaguar F-Type for those who would like an extra bit of uumph! You will get 5 doors and sporty bucket style seats along with 2 additional picnic seats in the boot which can be swivelled round when you need them – handy! Inside there is a fighter jet style heads up display that will beam all the important information onto the windscreen so you can keep your eyes on the road. There is a panoramic sculpted roof and extra grip technology to provide safety and reliability no matter what the weather! To entertain the little people in the back there is on board wi fi and a Meridian Digital Audio System
The F-PACE is due to built here in the UK in Solihull creating 1,300 new jobs and aimed firmly at families has already been affectionately called the She-Type Jaguar! No matter the name this new entry into the SUV market will provide a worthy rival to the Porshce Macan, BMW X4 crossover and Audi Q5 already on the market.
