Jaguar’s new F-Pace is a serious rival to the Audi Q5

Jaguar launches first SUV, arguably the most important car in the brand's recent history.

Jaguar’s new F-Pace is a serious rival to the Audi Q5.

The new Jaguar F-Pace is arguably the most important car in Jaguar’s recent history. It’s the first SUV Jaguar has ever made and with rivals like the Volvo XC60, Porsche Macan and BMW X3 offering excellent choices for drivers and families alike, the F-Pace has to be pretty special to stand out from the crowd.

When the F-Pace was officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year, it generated a great deal of interest: all eyes were on Jaguar to see if it could successfully break out into the lucrative SUV market while making a car that still managed to be quintessentially ‘Jaguar’.

The F-Pace closely resembles the handsome Jaguar C-X17 concept car that was revealed way back in 2013. Now, with full prices and specifications released for the F-Pace, we’ve got everything you need to know about the first car Jaguar has made that isn’t a luxury saloon or sports car.

Despite this being Jaguar’s first SUV, there’s no doubting the F-Pace’s designers stuck closely to Jaguar’s current design philosophy: the front end will be familiar to owners of the Jaguar XF and Jaguar XE executive saloons, while the F-Pace’s rear lights have clearly been inspired by the Jaguar F-Type sports car. While it’s possible to argue that Jaguar has played it safe with the design of the F-Pace, there’s no denying it’s a handsome car, while the raised ride height and wide air intakes below the headlights clearly set it apart from other models in the Jaguar range.
