Jaguar F-Pace 2017 4-door SUV
Trim Shown: Prestige/Premium Gas
Jaguar's first SUV is based on a rear-wheel-drive platform shared with the XF and new XE. The F-Pace is quick, thanks to its 340-hp, supercharged 3.0-liter V6, but the omnipresent engine drone quickly becomes tiring. The S uses a 380-hp version of this engine, and a 2.0-liter turbodiesel is the base engine. All versions come with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The F-Pace is taut and nimble, contributing to the lively driving experience. However, the ride is stiff and choppy. The seats are comfortable, but interior quality isn't as impeccable as in the German competitors. The infotainment system is behind the times, utilizing a slow and fussy touch screen. Active safety features are available if you opt for the vision package. A 2.0-liter turbocharged engine arrives in 2018.

Road Test

Jaguar has long bucked the SUV trend, selling just sedans, coupes, and convertibles for decades. The British brand remained one of the last holdouts from this popular segment, until the introduction of the F-Pace. Their first effort, indeed, lives up...


  • Nimble handling
  • Quick acceleration


  • Stiff ride
  • Loud cabin

Best Version to Get

We'd skip the base model; it's not even available with blind-spot monitoring. The best overall value is probably the Prestige trim, to which we suggest adding the Vision package.
