Car reviews - Jaguar - F-Pace - S 30d First Edition
Jaguar’s first SUV, the F-Pace, has retained the British brand’s charms
20 Dec 2017
NOT content with sharing with its Land Rover sister brand, Jaguar has built its own SUV, the striking F-Pace, with more regard for on-road antics than off-road prowess.
That’s not to say it can't get its claws grotty, within the restrictions of sealed-surface tyres and clearance, but this particularly big cat still has its eyes firmly focused on the bitumen.
A cabin with room for four adults and plenty of cargo space, the F-Pace in First Edition form is a striking machine, with an even more impactful powerplant – the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel gives the chassis the pace it craves.
While the handling emphasis has – even with the adaptively-damped suspension – taken some of the comfort out of the ride quality, but many may take one look and not care.
