The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace is Here!
The F-Pace is the first ever SUV from Jaguar. Originally shown the C-X17 concept model in 2013 at the Frankfurt Motor Show the F-Pace was launched in 2016 and sold 80,000 models in it's first year. This impressive sales figure makes the F-Pace Jaguars fastest ever selling car.
The F-Pace is in direct competition with the likes of the Porsche Macan, Land Rover Evoque, BMW X3 and the Audi Q5. The F Pace combines head turning looks with comfort, practicality and space, sports car DNA and high-quality design, making it an attractive option for buyers in the SUV market. In 2017, the F Pace was named World Car Of The Year and World Design Car Of The Year, which is only the second time a car has claimed both awards.

Exterior Features of The Jaguar F-Pace
Jaguar F-Pace’s lightweight Aluminum Architecture is stiff and strong, offering a positive impact on fuel economy without compromising safety for passengers. It is the lightest vehicle in its class offering a weight distribution of 50:50, meaning performance and ride comfort is always at its best.
Visually the F-Pace is inspired by the F-Type and has agile looks with sporting characteristics. The smooth contours on the bonnet give it a striking, yet aggressive profile, making the car look appealing from any perspective. As you look closer, your eyes are immediately drawn towards Jaguar's signature 'J' blade daytime running lights with the option to upgrade to adaptive LED headlights. They closely replicate daytime to help give you the best visibility at night and reduce fatigue. To the rear are Jaguar's high intensity LED rear lights. Even the alloy wheels offered are all aerodynamically efficient with a choice of sizes from 18"-22".
Interior Features of the F-Pace
On the inside the F-Pace has a class leading boot size with a capacity of 650 litres, along with 40:20:40 split on the rear seats allowing a versatile loading space. Depending on how you fold them, you can have space for larger items like skiing equipment. The rear seats allow enough space for 3 adults to sit comfortably and recline so your passengers can find their perfect position.
Every Jaguar F-Pace comes with InControl which are a range of technologies that keep you connected to your car. As standard the F-Pace is supplied with TOUCH PRO which now features a 10” infotainment touchscreen and allows control of DAB radio, navigation, calls and apps available when connected to a smartphone.
With DUAL VIEW the same 10" touchscreen can be split into 2 so the driver and passenger can view different information. This way the driver can be checking directions while the passenger watches a DVD. Other standard features include; Instrument cluster with 5” Central TDT Display or Interactive Driver Display, Jaguar Sound System (80W) or Meridan Sound System (380W).
Technology and Driver Aids
- Activity Key - Jaguar provide a key which can be worn around the wrist and is waterproof. For those who are swimming, sailing or running it solves the problem of where to keep your key.
- Powered Gesture Tailgate - sensors under the rear bumper allow you to open the boot by waving your foot, ideal when you have your hands full.
- Lane Departure Warning - a visual alert and a gentle vibration of the steering wheel will alert the driver if they have unintentionally veered out of their lane.
- Driver Condition Monitor - any lapses in concentration that could be due to fatigue are detected and an audible alert and visual alert let the driver know it is time to take a break.
- Traffic Sign Recognition with Intelligent Speed Limiter - this technology can detect speed limits and display them to the driver as well as limit speed to make sure the F-Pace never breaks any speed limits.
- Blind Spot Monitor and Reverse Traffic Detection - these technologies make sure you always know what's around your vehicle, even when you don't have a clear view. The driver is alerted to objects in their blind spot and if an object is likely to cross your path when reversing the F-Pace will let you know.
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Park Assist - your speed is automatically adjusted to maintain a safe distance from the car in front, both reducing speed and increasing speed to the pre-set limit. The F-Pace can be brought to a complete stop in traffic and will move off again automatically when safe to do so.
- Park Assist - this technology takes all the stress out of parking by steering in and out of spaces for you while the driver only needs to control the speed. Other parking aids include a 360-degree surround camera or front and rear parking sensors.
- Autonomous Emergency Braking - if the F-Pace detects a possible forward collision an audible warning will be given followed by a visual warning. If there is no response from the driver the brakes will automatically be applied to reduce the severity of an impact.
