REFRESHED 2021 F-PACE GENERATES MEDIA BUZZ

Jaguar is excited to announce a complete refresh for the award-winning F-PACE luxury performance SUV, arriving in 2021. Already generating positive buzz in the motoring press ahead of its arrival, the new F-PACE will feature an extensive redesign inside and out, all-new six-cylinder engine options, added technology, greater safety and sharper pricing.

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

All variants of the new F-PACE will now exclusively feature the R-Dynamic package, which CarAdvice sees as offering “a more aggressive styling package”. CarsGuide explains that this means “the wheel-size minimum is 19 inches, all lighting is LED, the lower body sides are in contrasted hues and the cabin has a darker and higher-tech ambience.”

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

Turning their attention to what’s under the bonnet, they note, “The big cat also now has sharper claws with the addition of new inline six-cylinder turbo engines.”

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

Beyond the powertrains, for CarExpert “the most substantial changes are on the inside”. The brand new Pivi Pro infotainment system wowed all motoring sites across the board, which Motoring.com.au sees as “fancy” and sitting “at the heart of the F-PACE interior...smarter, faster, always connected and future-proofed thanks to over-the-air system updates”.

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

The all-new interior is viewed by CarAdvice as most notable in the updated F-PACE, “with Jaguar paying particular attention to both the colours and materials used throughout the cabin”. According to CarsGuide, “There’s also an emphasis on ‘Contemporary British Design’ driving the use of open-pore wood trim, quilted leather upholstery and – at last – a new gear shifter with cricket-ball stitched detailing”.

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.
