2019 Jaguar F-Pace
Ratings & Reliability
Jaguar's compact SUV shares its rear-wheel-drive platform with the XE and XF. 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. A 2.0-liter turbo is now the base engine, and a diesel is also available. A smooth eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are standard. The taut and nimble F-Pace is one of the best-handling SUVs, contributing to the lively driving experience. However, the ride is stiff and choppy. The seats are comfortable, but interior quality doesn't match some competitors. The infotainment system is behind the times, utilizing a slow and fussy touch screen. The A/C system isn't always up to the task. A number of safety features, including lane keeping assist and automatic emergency braking, are standard for 2019.
