After months of teasers and camouflage shots, the Jaguar F-Pace has finally broken cover at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany.
Labeled as a performance crossover, the F-Pace comes in three state of power trims: a 2.0-litre diesel engine that is good enough for 178bhp and 430 Nm of torque, a more powerful 3.0-litre V6 diesel unit that delivers 296bhp and 700 Nm of torque, and finally a supercharged petrol version that is capable of churning out 375 bhp. The latter - paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that channels power to all four wheels - can accelerate the car from 0 to 100km/hr in 5.1 seconds.
The F-Pace is built on Jaguar’s all new Lightweight Aluminium Architecture. It has a 2,874mm long wheelbase while the total length of the car stands at 4,731mm.
A large upright grille is prominently placed at the front, while sleek headlamps with daytime running lights and Jaguar’s signature ‘J’ blade graphic complete the front fascia.
Inside, there is a 10.2-inch display to satisfy the infotainment needs of the passengers. It supports smartphone gesture like swipe to move from one page to another and drag to scroll through maps.
The Jaguar F-Pace goes on sale in the UK with a sticker price of £34,170 (Rs 35 lakh). Expect the Tata Motors-owned company to bring this car to our shores soon.
