To date, the Jaguar F-PACE has not been tested by Euro NCAP which is a little disappointing if you prioritise safety in your purchasing decision.
The F-PACE model we were testing was equipped with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Dynamic Stability Control and Traction Control, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Traffic Sign Recognition with Intelligent Speed Limiter, Emergency Brake Assist - 6 airbags (driver and front passenger) with side curtain airbags and front side airbags.
All models come with an 8-inch touch screen infotainment system entitled InControl touch – it comprises Satellite Navigation, DAB radio tuner, with Bluetooth/2xUSB connectivity. It will work in conjunction with smartphones so you can run in car apps, like Spotify and internet radio apps. You can also use the system as a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot so that other passengers can utilise the car’s data connection.
Navigation directions are also displayed between the speedo and rev counter.
It is ok but is nowhere near the experience of the system in the Audi Q5.
- Audi Q5
- BMW X3/X4
- Mercedes Benz GLC
- Porsche Macan
- Range Rover Discovery
What we liked
- Pretty much everything, especially the looks and it is easy to live with.
What we disliked
- The 2.0-litre engine can leave you wanting more
Jaguar have made a brave entry into a crowded market but the F-PACE is rather striking and we think that you should test the 2.0-litre engine, it probably won’t suit the most enthusiastic of drivers, and it can leave you thinking I should have gone for the 3.0-litre engine but it is more frugal. Whatever your decision the automatic transmission is a must; it complements the F-PACE perfectly.
In summary, the Jaguar F-PACE comes highly recommended it is one of our favourite test cars and was certainly on the receiving end of lots of admiring glances.24 November 2016
