Jaguar F-Pace

(2016 - present)

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 Jaguar F-Pace currently holds an Expert Rating of 78%, which is not quite the best in its class (the Range Rover Velar has a rating of 80% as of April 2020) 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.
