Meet Jaguar’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle

Yes, it is the refreshed F-Pace.

What you see here is the refreshed F-Pace. Jaguar has given the SUV a thorough mid-life makeover both inside and outside the cabin. There’s new tech on offer, and it comes with updated four- and six-cylinder engines with mild-hybrid technology. The F-Pace facelift also claims the title of the first Jaguar with a plug-in hybrid variant.

The F-Pace has always looked good. But with the latest design tweaks, it has become even more eye-catching. On the outside, the SUV gets revised front and rear bumpers, sharper all-LED headlamps and taillamps, a wider front grille and redesigned bonnet and tailgate. Jaguar is also offering the optional Black Exterior Pack which, as the name suggests, dials-in a more sporty outlook with blacked-out elements. Also, there are 12 wheel options, including four new designs in 19, 20 and 21 inches.

Jaguar says that the refreshed F-Pace boasts an all-new interior. And, there’s plenty of evidence to support that claim. The SUV features even more extensive use of open-pore wood along with laser-etched speaker grilles. Soft-touch materials cover nearly everything, and there’s a new drive selector on the centre console. And, of course, there’s the new 11.4-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system which dominates the dashboard’s real estate. Jaguar calls it Pivi Pro. The F-Pace also packs Active Road Noise Cancellation as well as cabin air ionisation, which even filters out PM 2.5 particulates.

Other features include a colour head-up display, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, 15W wireless mobile charging and the second-gen Activity Key which, when worn, can lock, unlock and start the vehicle without the need of a conventional key. Thanks to the dual-sim infotainment system, the SUV can receive Over-The-Air software updates as well.

You can get the F-Pace facelift with power ranging between 161bhp and 398bhp, and torque between 365Nm and 650Nm. In total, there are eight powertrains available covering four- and six-cylinder engines, with or without mild-hybrid technology. The four-cylinder engines have a cubic capacity of 2.0 litres, whereas the six-pot motors displace 3.0 litres of fuel. All variants come as standard with all-wheel-drive and 8-speed automatic transmission. The F-Pace P400e (PHEV) has 398bhp/640Nm from a 2.0-litre petrol engine and an electric motor. It can hit 100kmph from nothing in 5.3 seconds and, thanks to a 17.1kWh lithium-ion battery, travel up to 53km on electric power alone.

The Jaguar F-Pace facelift has gone on sale in the UK. Soon, the company will launch it in other key markets across the globe. How do you like it?
