2020 Facelifted Jaguar F-Pace: Premium SUV with plug-in hybrid revealed

In a nutshell: Jaguar F-Pace

  • Facelifted new Jaguar F-Pace revealed, with prices from £40,860.
  • There’s a new exterior design, an all-new interior, advanced connectivity and efficient electrified powertrain capability for the first time.
  • New ‘bulging’ bonnet design, super-slim all-LED quad headlights, new grille, and new rear lights and bumper for a more assertive presence.
  • Gains Jaguar Land Rover’s ‘Pivi Pro’ dual-sim infotainment system accessed through an all-new 11.4-inch HD curved glass touchscreen.

Sharper lines, a bulging new bonnet and electrified engines for the first time: say hello to the facelifted new Jaguar F-PACE.

And it’s a mid-size premium SUV that’ll continue to take the good fight to the likes of the BMW X3, Audi Q5, and the Mercedes-Benz GLC.

Owners have been raving about the F-PACE since it was first unveiled back in 2016, as it became Jaguar’s first ever crossover SUV.

It’s sold in big numbers ever since - and the latest version is likely to continue that trend.

There are significant styling revisions to give the F-PACE a more aggressive, imposing stance.

There are also big improvements to the tech levels, not least the infotainment system.

And with both mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid power added to the choice of engines for the very first time, the F-PACE is now bang on trend and bearing down on its rivals.

So let’s start with the exterior.

Jaguar says the fresh ‘sculpted bonnet’ has a ‘wider power bulge’ and smoother, more precisely defined surfaces, while the front grille has also grown.

There are new super slim, all-LED quad headlights as standard, which are available with optional Pixel LED technology.

There’s also a new rear bumper and sculpted tailgate.

Step inside the cabin and you’re greeted with better levels of luxury, connectivity and practicality. A new centre console can incorporate an optional wireless charger and greater console stowage.

Meanwhile the real showstopper is the new 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen, courtesy of the new Pivi Pro infotainment system - the same gizmo you’ll also find in the new Land Rover Defender.

But besides the way it looks, perhaps the biggest improvement to the F-PACE is in the electrification of the engines.

Added to the range is the P400e plug-in hybrid - the same mill you’ll find in the Land Rover Defender and the updated Range Rover Sport.

Here a 2.0 litre petrol engine is married to a 105kW electric motor to produce power of 404 PS. Jaguar claims fuel economy of up to 130.2mpg as well as a 0-60mph time of just 5.0 seconds.

When fully charged, the new P400e is capable of up to 33 miles of all-electric driving. And when plugged into a domestic 7kW wall box, you can get the battery up to 80 per cent charge in as little as one hour 40 minutes.

As well as the plug-in hybrid, mild-hybrid power has been added to all three diesel engines available, as well as to a 3.0 litre petrol mill with 400 PS on tap.

All engines are bolted to an 8-speed auto transmission with all-wheel drive.

The new F-PACE also benefits from a selection of advanced driver assistance technology, including Clear Exit Monitor to warn you of approaching cars or cyclists, Adaptive Cruise Control, and 3D Surround Camera technology.

There’s also a good range of trim levels, from the base ‘S’ up to ‘HSE R-Dynamic’, which will set you back £64,490 for the PHEV version.

Julian Thomson, Jaguar Design Director, comments: “The new F-PACE is dynamic and assertive with an elegant stance on the road – it represents a significant development of Jaguar design language."
“The heightened luxury and attention to detail inside the F-PACE with seamlessly integrated state-of-the-art technologies ensure both driver and passengers feel a real sense of occasion whenever they get in the vehicle.”

The updated F-Pace is on sale now; and will be available on our Jaguar F-Pace lease page soon.
