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 to the "pace" in its name, delivering swift acceleration and cat-like reflexes.

Jaguar F-Pace 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 to the "pace" in its name, delivering swift acceleration and cat-like reflexes. But don't expect typical Jaguar grace; the stiff ride, cut-rate interior ambience, droning exhaust note, and inferior infotainment system combine to make the F-Pace feel more adolescent than accomplished.

Nimble and entertaining to pilot down a twisty back road, the F-Pace feels reminiscent of its platform-mates, the compact XE and redesigned XF sedans. This casts the F-Pace in the spirit of competitors like the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Porsche Macan.

Best Version to Get
The best value is the Prestige trim, to which we suggest adding the Driver Assistance package, which adds  adaptive cruise control.
