Just a few days after Jaguar confirmed that its upcoming crossover will be dubbed the Jaguar F-Pace, a prototype has been spied in the midst of testing in production guise.
Beneath the skin, the road-going Jaguar F-Pace will ride on the same aluminium architecture as the XE. It will also be available with similar engines including a selection of petrol and diesel four-cylinders possibly utilising forced induction in the form of twin-turbochargers in top-specification. Thanks to the lightweight architecture, it is hoped the F-Pace will weigh less than the Porsche Macan.
Other details about the Jaguar F-Pace remain scarce but it is speculated that it will be available with four seats like the original C-X17 concept as well as five seats as showcased at the Guangzhou Auto Show 2013.
From a visual standpoint, a selection of characteristic Jaguar elements can be seen. For starters, the production-spec Jaguar F-Pace features similar headlights and taillights to the C-X17 concept with the overall body almost identical in its shape.
