It is raining SUVs and the Jaguar F-Pace is on the awaited list. For a manufacturer who has always built sporty cars, building a rugged old-school SUV was never on the cards. The Jaguar F-Pace is a modern urban SUV and is expected to launch soon. Not only because it was showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year, but also because the features and specifications section on the jaguar website has been populated.

The Jaguar F-Pace should be available in four trims – Pure, Prestige, R-Sport and the First Edition in increasing levels of trim. The F-Pace gets safety features like dual-front airbags, side airbags, emergency brake assist, cruise control, dynamic stability control and hill launch assist as standard. Dual-zone climate control, one-touch window operation, rain-sensing automatic wipers, automatic headlamps and electrically adjustable rear-view mirrors are also standard. The F-Pace Pure gets 18-inch alloy wheels and 10-way adjustable front seats along with the Jaguar surround sound music system. It gets push-button start with keyless entry and parking sensors both fore and aft. The touch-screen music system comes with Bluetooth connectivity and streaming. It gets ambient lighting, three power sockets and 40/20/40 split foldable rear seats.


Along with the spec-list of the Pure, the Prestige gets white Taurus leather seats and chrome garnish for the windows. Bi-xenon headlamps with the signature J-shaped LED daytime running lights and fog lamps are standard on the F-Pace. The R-Sport comes with 19-inch alloy wheels and the R-Sport body-kit with slightly more aggressive front and rear bumpers and body coloured side mouldings. The metal tread-plates get the R-Sport lettering instead of Jaguar. The standard seats are replaced by bucket seats and are upholstered in dual-tone leather. The tailgate can now be closed with a gesture and gets body coloured wing mirrors. It gets additional power sockets and an electrically adjustable steering column along with electrically reclining rear seats. The analog instrument cluster is replaced by a TFT display for the virtual instrument console. Reverse parking is now guided by a surround camera.

The First Edition is the top-spec F-Pace. It gets a panoramic sunroof, 20-inch alloy wheels, an S body kit and the sporty leather seats as in the R-Sport. The ambient lighting in the cabin is adjustable and it gets a Meridian sound system. The car also gets dual exhaust pipes like the R-Sport with larger tips and the brake calipers are painted red for a sportier image.

The Pure and the Prestige get the 2.0-litre Ingenium four cylinder diesel engines while the R-Sport and the First Edition will get the mightier 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 diesel mill. The 2.0-litre diesel produces 177bhp of power and 430Nm of torque and comes mated to an eight-speed manual transmission. The 3.0-litre mill churns out 296bhp of power and a whopping 700Nm of torque making it one of the most powerful diesel SUVs.
