The 2016 Jaguar F-Pace has just been unveiled to the world and is on display at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. Featuring a very eye-catching design as well as some intriguing technology features, we saw it in the flesh.
The design looks very similar to the C-X17 concept. It gets Jaguar’s lightweight aluminium architecture, which is different to every other Jaguar, despite getting the modular structure. The F-Pace measures 4,731mm in length with a 2,874mm wheelbase and short overhangs. Luggage space is 650-litres. The cheapest model weighs in at just 1,665 kg.
The clean, responsive 178 hp (180 PS) 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel is the version that most will opt for thanks to its low emissions of just 129g/km. The range topping model features a supercharged 375 hp (380 PS) 3.0-litre V6 petrol with a 0-100 km/h time of just 5.5 seconds. The top diesel model is a 296 hp (300 PS) 3.0-litre V6 unit with a torque output of 700 Nm.
Other key elements of the Jaguar F-Pace include torque vectoring, adaptive dynamics and configurable dynamics features. It also features the company’s All Surface Progress Control system.
