Jaguar Land Rover India has listed the F-PACE crossover on its official website, suggesting that it would, indeed, be launched in the country. The F-PACE made its first public appearance in India at the 2016 Auto Expo in February. The British luxury marquee has released the details of the India-spec crossover. The company is expected to launch the crossover by the end of 2016 in India. Jaguar F-PACE would lock horns with the Mercedes-Benz GLA, Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Porsche Macan in the Indian market.
As per JLR India official website, the F-PACE would be launched in three trim levels: Pure, Prestige and R-Sport. The base trim Pure would come loaded with several premium features like cruise control with speed limiter, heated and power folding wing mirrors, 18-inch alloy wheels, two-zone automatic climate control, 10-way power adjust front seats, InControl touchscreen infotainment system, front and rear parking sensors, and All Surface Progress Control system. Moving to the Prestige trim, it would get all the features of Pure trim, plus several more in form of Taurus leather upholstery, reverse-parking camera, headlamp washers, additional exterior chrome detailing and an auto dimming internal rear-view mirror.
Last but not the least, the flagship R-Sport variants would boast of LED headlamps, 19-inch alloy wheels, mood lighting, larger front brakes, gesture-control tailgate, electric adjust front seats with memory, electric-adjust steering column, reclining rear seat, InControl Touch Pro infotainment system and surround-camera system as standard features. It is also being learnt that the company might also introduce a limited batch of 'First Edition' models, which come with an array of additional features such as panoramic sunroof, Meridian audio system, Windsor leather upholstery, and 20-inch alloy wheels as standard. The crossover would be offered with two diesel engines: a 180bhp 2.0L engine and a 300bhp 3.0L V6 engine. The former would be offered with Pure and Prestige grades, while the latter would be presented with R-Sport and 'First Edition'. All the engines would be linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel-drive as standard.
