Jaguar to launch the F-Pace SUV in India by end of 2016

15 Feb 2016 / 0

Jaguar showcased the F-Pace, a sporty crossover based on the XE platform, at the 2016 Auto Expo. Jaguar’s foray into the SUV space is a departure from its tradition of premium sedans. With an intention to push sales volumes and compete aggressively with the German counterparts, Jaguar will launch the F-Pace in India by the end of 2016.

The Jaguar F-Pace was first unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Show. Interestingly, the design language on the sporty crossover is similar to the one seen on Jaguar’s sedans. The F-Pace is based on the C-X17 concept and gets some of the design features from the F-Type – specifically the rear haunches, fender vents and tail lights. The interior too will resemble the sedans.

Jaguar will offer the F-Pace with the same powertrains as the XE. The range consists of a 2.0-litre diesel motor that makes 180PS of power and will be offered in the manual transmission rear wheel drive, all-wheel drive versions and automatic all-wheel drive variants. In addition, there is a 2.0-litre petrol motor that makes 240PS of power. The higher displacement 3.0-litre diesel that makes 300PS of power will be offered in the automatic all-wheel drive variants while the 3.0-litre petrol automatic will be offered in two states of tune – 340PS and 380PS.

Jaguar is most likely to position the F-Pace at the premium end of the range and might price it close to the Range Rover. More details will surface at the launch.
