The world of car based luxury SUVs, has grown by leaps and bounds since the Lexus RX assured in the segment back in the late 1990, and after decades of selling just sedans and coupes, Jaguar has its first-ever SUV in the F base. The all-wheel-drive F pace is based on a rear wheel-drive platform shared with the new XE, the vehicles excellent underpinnings are quite apparent. As the F pace has the same nimble precise handling, as its sedan siblings. The 2017 Jaguar F Pace athleticism is also the complete antithesis of the aforementioned Lexus RX, which feels ponderous and devoid of any sporting field.
2017 Jaguar F-Pace Specs
The supercharged 340 horsepower 3-liter V6 provide sufficient power and the exhaust tone gives it a sporty character. It’s match with an eight-speed automatic, that for the most part feels very smooth and responsive. The S model comes with a 380 horsepower version of this engine; a 2-liter turbo diesel is also available.
2017 Jaguar F-Pace Interior
Inside, you get a good driving position complement by a nicely placed dead pedal and lots of telescopic range for the steering wheel. The seats also feel very supportive visibility is pretty good all around except for the back, the rear window is small, the controls are a mixed bag, the window switches are too high and far forward, it’s also hard to see and manipulate the buttons for the climate settings. as far as interior quality we can help, but notice that there was awfully large amount of hard plastic for such an expensive car.
2017 Jaguar F-Pace Price
Prices start at $42.320, can reach about $70.000 with options, are typically quick version is $53,895. Right in the heart of the luxury SUV market. Too bad you have to shell out a bit of extra cash, to get safety features: blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, require spring for the $2.100 vision package. A luxury vehicle should have the standard.
Overall the 2017 Jaguar F pace brings to mind the Mercedes Benz GLC is comfortable ride and nimble handling. the Jaguars not as nice inside, and compared to the Porsche Makan, the FPS rides better and is less expensive, though not as impeccably finished with the frisky felling of a god sport sedan, and very little indication that you’re driving a 4,300 pounds SUV yet F pace hits the mark as a luxurious and compelling vehicle.
Whether or not Jaguar can overcome a long history of shaky reliability is another story and the various squeaks and rattles. and our test car certainly makes us wonder.
