2016 Jaguar F-Pace Review

Introduction

Given the global rush for SUVs and crossovers it was as inevitable as the changing of the tides that eventually, Jaguar was going to have to offer one for sale. Jag has heavily tapped the expertise of its sister company Land Rover for help in creating the F-Pace, and the result is a quick, capable crossover that looks good, is hugely practical and good to drive.

 

Body Style: SUV              Seats: 5                MRP from £34,730 - £53,365

       

Did you know? The F-Pace name comes from a Jaguar advertising slogan from the 1950s – Grace, Pace, Space.

Verdict: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7.2/10)

It shouldn’t really be a surprise, given Land Rover’s involvement and Jaguar’s generally good record of late, but for a first-ever SUV from a company better known for sports cars and saloons, the F-Pace is an exceptionally good effort. We have some reservations over the interior and some of the dynamic performance, but overall the F-Pace has been a job well done for Jaguar, and its strong sales are a good reflection of the effort that’s gone into making it.
