So we got a 2017 Jaguar F-Pace S
When we first heard that Jaguar was going to do their own SUV, we didn’t think it made much sense, considering the carmaker’s other half is dedicated to only building SUVs, including crossovers. It then got a name which made even less sense. Then we saw it in the flesh, and it looked like it could be an interesting vehicle. Our writer Gautam drove it overseas, but we finally got to look at one up close and personal ourselves.
The F-Pace is a great-looking crossover in person. Thanks to sharp styling cues, it looks bigger than it is from far away, while up close, it comes off as more of a hot hatch than an SUV.
Inside, it uses the latest corporate Jaguar cabin design, except it looks much more interesting here due to changes such as the larger screen.
Cabin space is fine, although the glove-box space is wasted by a fire-extinguisher and the boot loses some volume due to that high floor hiding a full-size spare wheel.
The Jaguar drives very nicely, and feels great behind the wheel. More on that in the full review.
