REFRESHED 2021 F-PACE GENERATES MEDIA BUZZ
Starting from $74,990 before on-road costs, CarExpert notes that’s “down almost $2000 from the current car”. With just five models for 2021, reduced from 17 in the current line-up, they appreciate that “Jaguar Land Rover continues to simplify its model ranges locally”.
SPORTIER NEW STYLING PACKAGE
Motoring.com.au describes the updated exterior design for F-PACE, which “starts with a larger grille featuring a heritage-inspired leaper logo, flanked by a pair of larger air intakes. The sportier new look is joined by a reworked bonnet with a wider power bulge and 10mm thinner, more advanced LED headlight clusters with ‘double J’ daytime running lights to create a fresh front-end look”.
THE BIG CAT HAS SHARPER CLAWS
Buyers of the F-PACE, explains CarAdvice, “will get a choice of three powertrains: the 2.0-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder 'P250' offering 183kW/365Nm; a 3.0-litre turbo petrol inline six-cylinder 'P400' with 294kW/550Nm; or a 3.0-litre turbo diesel inline six-cylinder 'D300' putting out 221kW/650Nm. Both six-cylinder 'Ingenium' engines come with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, helping to reduce fuel consumption and improve emissions”. In addition, all engines are fitted to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is now standard across the F-PACE range.
SUBSTANTIAL UPDATES INSIDE
CarExpert details the system’s impressive capabilities, saying, “Pivi Pro’s interface is aligned around navigation, phone and media functions. It includes embedded Spotify, 4G connectivity, two embedded modems and a 360-degree view of the car, as well as Smart Settings which recognises which key fob is in the car and adjusts climate control, media and phone settings to suit that particular driver.”
CONTEMPORARY BRITISH DESIGN
Drawing attention to what they see as some of the cabin highlights, Motoring.com.au points out the soft-touch materials on all major touchpoints, such as door inserts, and says the new layout is more elegant, with Jaguar deliberately minimising buttons and dials.
With such an extensive overhaul in design, performance and technology, the already-impressive F-PACE has become even more irresistible in the new 2021 lineup. Watch the video for a preview of the 21MY Jaguar F-PACE and then build your own ahead of its arrival in dealerships.
