JAGUAR F-PACE : THE ULTIMATE PRACTICAL JAGUAR SPORTS CAR

unnamed-97Featuring sports-car derived chassis systems and evaluated on the same demanding roads as all other Jaguar vehicles, the new F-PACE will bring new levels of dynamic ability to the brand when it goes on sale in 2016, after debuting at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

 

The new F-PACE will reward drivers and passengers alike with a blend of agility and comfort that is unique to the small performance SUV segment; making it the most practical Jaguar sports car ever.

Whether on twisting mountain passes, flowing country roads or high-speed highway cruising1, the new F-PACE delivers responsiveness and precision with the characteristic levels of refinement and composure Jaguar vehicles are known for.

 

“We haven’t made any compromises or exceptions: the new F-PACE had to be a true Jaguar and had to deliver the dynamics DNA. We’ve tested ride and handling to the limit, and the result is that the new F-PACE is as engaging and rewarding to drive as it is comfortable and quiet. As soon as you get into the vehicle you know immediately that it’s a good place to be.” – Mike Cross, Chief Engineer of Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar

 

Developed using the Jaguar Lightweight Aluminum Architecture, the new F-PACE is designed to handle with precision and control without sacrificing ride comfort – it’s what makes a Jaguar stand apart from the competition. Taking full advantage of the body structure’s inherently high stiffness, the sophisticated double wishbone front suspension and Integral Link rear suspension provide a great starting point; tuned by Jaguar engineers, they make the new F-PACE incredibly responsive, and ensure that the vehicle can handle the impacts, undulations and camber of varying road surfaces.

 

Incorporating all of the learnings from F-TYPE, the F-PACE features a similar electric power-assisted steering system(EPAS) which gives drivers greater feedback and control than hydraulic systems. Every system between the steering wheel and the tire’s contact patch are optimized so that the new F-PACE responds immediately to driver input, giving a truly connected feel. Combined with the same torque vectoring by braking technology2 first developed for F-TYPE and incorporating a torque on-demand all-wheel drive system2, the new F-PACE has been designed to deliver outstanding agility in a variety of weather conditions and on varying road surfaces.

 

The new F-PACE makes its auto show debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show on Tuesday, September 15 at 10:30AM in Hall 5.0, Stand B06.
