Updated Jaguar F-Pace gains new interior and plug-in hybrid

There are four mild-hybrid engine options. The diesels range from a 161bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder to a 296bhp six-cylinder. Jaguar Land Rover’s new straight-six petrol, which uses a turbocharger and an electric supercharger, also makes its way into the range, with 395bhp.

Only one non-electrified model remains: the entry-level 247bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol.

Using the same D7a platform as before, the F-Pace “remains one of the most dynamic SUVs around”, Jaguar claims, thanks to chassis tweaks, the passive suspension set-up and configurable dynamics. Jaguar has also tuned the Audi Q5 rival’s dampers, springs and anti-roll bars on rougher surfaces for better ride quality.

“We wanted to make the car more luxurious and more refined,” said chief product engineer Colin Kirkpatrick.

Deliveries of the revised F-Pace begin in December. It is priced from £40,860, rising to £64,490 for the top-of-the-range PHEV, which arrives in spring 2021. A hot SVR model, powered by the same 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8 as the current model, is also expected next year.

Detail the key to future Jaguars

The revised F-Pace might not look all that different, but the finer details will mark out future models.

Adam Hatton, reflecting on Jaguar design in general, said: “I thought we needed to get a lot better at detailing.” To that end, he has created a detail design group. “The new team is led by someone who used to be a watch designer. We have people outside of the car world because the people that buy luxury cars like all luxury products.”
