Upgrades To Jaguar F-PACE, XF and XE models

It’s got a tough act to follow. The previous Jaguar F-PACE SUV was crowned Auto Express magazine’s 2016 Car of the Year, so when the car was due for a revamp less than a year after hitting this notable high, some would consider it to be a gamble.

Especially so when in giving its verdict, the magazine said: “The F-PACE is as luxurious and comfortable as a Jag 4x4 should be, and both company car drivers and private buyers will find its price and low running costs attractive. All in all, it makes Jaguar’s first effort in the crossover SUV market a notable success, as global demand for the car will surely prove.”

Now we’re just a year down the road, and the F-PACE is already set to benefit from a range of four new engines - two two-litre petrol units, and two diesel-powered plants, one of which, the 163bhp E-Performance, gives the lowest ever emissions figure for the model of 126 grammes of CO2 per kilometre.

The changes come just as Jaguar announced strong year-on-year growth in UK sales of 26 per cent, while at the same time revealing that in 2016, it also broke a 12-year-old record for the number of cars sold here.

F-Pace Changes For 2017-18

A new Light Oyster/Ebony interior option gives the premium cabin a purposeful appearance and all Prestige and Portfolio models now feature the Sport steering wheel as standard. Customers who choose the automatic transmission also benefit from twin covered cup holders on the centre console, giving the interior a cleaner, less cluttered appearance.

Flagship Portfolio models include the optional feature of enhanced front seats with powered headrest height adjustment and manually adjustable winged headrests providing supreme comfort and simplicity. In addition, Jaguar’s Dual View screen technology provides further convenience to driver and passengers.

The latest F-PACE also features the latest safety technologies with the addition of Forward Traffic Detection and Forward Vehicle Guidance, also seen on the XE and XF.

The F-PACE will be available from the new Swansway Jaguar dealership in Crewe, priced from £34,730 on-the-road.

An Individual Drive

The 2018 model year XF and XE bring greater scope for customers to personalise their driving experience thanks to Configurable Dynamics being offered as a standalone feature.

The system allows drivers to set up the vehicle to suit their personal preference by choosing ‘Normal’ or ‘Dynamic’ settings for the engine, gearbox and steering. The chosen combination is activated by engaging ‘Dynamic’ mode using the chequered flag button on the central console.

Adaptive Dynamics, which allows drivers to tailor the suspension settings in addition to those for the engine, gearbox and steering, when combined with Configurable Dynamics, continues to be available, and provides “the ultimate in dynamic personalisation”, Jaguar says.

Sitting Comfortably? You Will Be

The adjustable front seats in F-PACE and XF models have been boosted with the availability of winged headrests. The new designs feature powered height adjustment with manual side wing supports.

Dual View technology is introduced across all three models, allowing the driver and front passenger to view different infotainment displays using the central 10-inch Touchscreen display. The clever InControl technology is available when Touch Pro is specified and allows the driver to follow satellite navigation instructions while the passenger uses the same display to view USB or TV outputs.

A revised paint palette for all three vehicles brings the colour names into line with those offered throughout the Jaguar Land Rover family, simplifying the customer ordering experience.

Safety ‘Firsts’

Jaguar takes pride in the safety of its vehicles and F-PACE, XF and XE feature a pair of new technologies.

Forward Traffic Detection, part of the surround camera system, is designed to assist when forward visibility is restricted. Using a discreet forward-facing camera in the grille, the system detects items crossing the path of the vehicle and provides a visual warning on the central screen when a potential hazard is detected.

Forward Vehicle Guidance is fitted as part of the Surround Camera System and helps drivers to place the vehicle when completing low-speed manoeuvres. On XE and XF models Blind Spot Assist (BSA) enhances Jaguar Land Rover’s existing Blind Spot Monitor system by using the collision warning system in tandem with the Electric Power Steering System. If BSA detects a vehicle in or approaching the blind spot when changing lanes, it will apply a gentle steering force to keep the vehicle in its lane.

Having already been judged the safest family car available by Euro NCAP, further additions to the current model have included Blind Spot Assist, Forward Vehicle Guidance and Forward Traffic Detection systems, which operates at speeds up to 37mph, and can identify pedestrians more than one metre tall which cross the vehicle’s path.

Long List Of Awards

The latest changes follow the XE taking its second Auto Express Compact Executive Car of the Year title - its 47th major global honour in total - when the judges said: “None can match the baby big cat’s beguiling mix of talents. With its sleek looks, cosseting cabin and perfect ride and handling balance, the Jag feels a cut above its rivals.”

The XF is available to order now, from £32,490, while the XE’s starting price is £28,295.
