The first official photo of the 2016 Jaguar F-Pace SUV has just been released before the car celebrates its world debut at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015.
The picture provides us with a side view of the new crossover and as expected, it looks almost identical to the Jaguar C-X17 concept from two years ago. The headlights and taillights are very similar as is the overall shape of the car as well as its sharp roofline. This particular example is also painted in a bright shade of blue like the C-X17 concept alongside a set of twin five-spoke silver wheels.
At the front, the F-Pace will use double wishbone suspension while the rear will feature an Integral Link suspension setup. When combined with the lightweight aluminium architecture set to underpin the F-Pace, it is promising exceptional handling characteristics.
Also, the F-Pace SUV will use the British marque’s electric power-assisted steering system already used by the F-Type, XE and latest-generation XF. Arguably of more significance is that the F-Pace will also include a torque on-demand all-wheel drive system including torque vectoring technology to ensure the best possible agility in all conditions and on all surfaces.
Production cars don’t normally look so similar to the concept’s their based on. Very promising from Jaguar
