Expert Rating

Summary


The Jaguar F-Pace is a mid-sized SUV/crossover that sits above the smaller E-Pace in the Jaguar SUV family. It is built at Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull facility near Birmingham in the West Midlands.

Unlike heavier-duty models from sister brand Land Rover, the F-Pace shares its platform with the Jaguar XE and XF saloons, as well as the Range Rover Velar.

The F-Pace was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show before going on sale in the UK in early 2016. A high-performance SVR model, powered by a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, was added to the range in 2018. The whole range was facelifted in Summer 2020.

The Jaguar F-Pace currently holds an Expert Rating of 72% as of December 2021, which is not quite the best in its class but is still very competitive. It has been praised for its driving dynamics and styling, although criticised for its interior quality not matching the standards of some of its rivals.

The Jaguar F-Pace has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP. As yet, very few new cars have been tested for environmental impact by Green NCAP, and inevitably the testing programme was halted in early 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic.

If the F-Pace is selected for assessment, we will publish the results here.
