After the powerful, agile, and distinctive F-Type model Jaguar is set to launch the company’s 2017 Jaguar F-Pace. The F-Pace is being promoted as a luxury performance SUV that ties together sporty handling and an eye-catching design to provide everyday practicality to the drivers. Let’s analyze the features in-depth and see if the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace really is all it is being bragged to be.
The exterior of the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace boasts a design that exudes power. Aerodynamics is focused upon when it comes to the design. It also helps to reduces fuel consumption. The overall built is made of aluminum that reduces the weight of the car but still gives it sturdiness. It also has a tall mesh grille. Signature LED lighting is also a part of the exterior design. The front fenders are pierced by long vents. The side windows have also been steeply tapered. A half-circle taillight is located at the back.
Jaguar cars are known for their voluptuousness and that’s also obvious in the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace. The touch display is available in two versions. The InControl Touch has an 8-inch screen with standard smartphone/tablet controls while the InControl Touch Pro has a 10.2-inch wide screen and is powered by a quad core processor. The interior also has premium leather seats that come in two variants. The Luxury variant features the Brogue Perforated Taurus leather seats while the Sport variant features the Jet/Red Perforated Taurus leather seats. The back has enough space for three grown-ups to sit comfortably. An optional electric recline for the rear seats is also available. The panoramic glass roof not only allows light to enter the car but also gives the interior a more spacious feel. The effective tinting of the glass prevents the interior from heating up.
The rear seats of the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace can be folded entirely or in a variation of combinations. The model can also be accessed through a smartphone app for unlocking, and starting the car remotely. The waterproof wearable ‘key’ wristband allows drivers to lock as well as unlock the car by touching the band to the ‘J’ in the Jaguar written on the rear fascia. The InControl Protect includes the SOS Emergency Call feature. There is also a head-up display (HUD) that uses laser technology to project useful information on the windshield. The Meridian 380W Sound System is standard and comes with 11 speakers. The optional Meridian 825W Sound System provides better range of sound performance throughout the whole car.
