Jaguar has just released a plethora of new images of its F-Pace crossover undergoing both cold and hot weather testing.
As with recently spied Jaguar F-Pace prototypes, the two test mules presented are wearing very little camouflage. Consequently, we have an almost unimpeded view of the F-Pace’s completed design and as long expected, it is very similar to the C-X17 Concept which debuted almost two years ago.
As a result, it will feature sleek and aggressive headlights and taillights which bare similarities to other models in Jaguars range. Elsewhere, a characteristic large front grille will be found at the front alongside prominent air intakes. Its roofline will bare similarities with the Range Rover Evoque but the Jaguar F-Pace will be significantly larger.
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, its main rival.
The F-Pace will debut in production-spec at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 in September, two years after the concept was revealed.
