Jaguar has revealed its revised F-Pace SUV, with the facelifted model being the first Jaguar to gain plug-in hybrid power, as well as getting a front and rear redesign, improved connectivity and a new interior.
The headline from a fleet perspective is the 49g/km plug-in model, which is capable of 33 miles of electric driving while also packing a 404hp powertrain. The P400e model starts from £56,060 for the S trim, which is the only one that gets below 50g/km, while the rest of the range sits one BiK band higher with CO2 of 51-54g/km and an EV range of between 30-33 miles, depending on model.
Also new to the range are 400hp petrol and 300hp diesel engines with mild hybrid technology to trim emissions, while the core corporate engines apart from the PHEV, the 163hp and 200hp 2.0-liotre diesels, also offer mild hybrid tech and replace 180hp and 240hp diesels in the pre-facelift SUV, cutting the entry emissions level to 165g/km. All-wheel drive is now standard across the line-up.
Jaguar said that the new exterior design gives the F-Pace a “cleaner, more assured presence, featuring a new sculpted bonnet with a wider power bulge and smoother, more precisely defined surfaces.” New lamp clusters front and rear are more slender, and at the front feature LED lamps that can be upgraded to Pixel LED technology that lights the road in segments to avoid dazzling other road users.
The cockpit is described as “bolder, more dynamic and with a greater focus on the driver”, with a new 11.4-inch central touchscreen at the centre, claimed to be three-times brighter than the previous 10-inch offering. Simplified functions will, according to Jaguar, allow drivers to access up to 90% of functions within two taps of the screen. It’s combined with a new 12.3-inch dashboard display, while the car’s connectivity and driver assistance systems are also upgraded.
