Jaguar F-Pace makes its Indian Debut at the Auto Expo 2016 and is the first ever crossover being produced by the brand, something that is usually done by Land Rover. Although it does not mean that F-Pace will be devoid of typical Jaguar styling that includes the mesh grille and swept back head lights in front. The engine hood consists of prominent lines and as we trickle down to the lower front bumper you will notice the chrome element on the fog lamp slots.
The elevated ground clearance and flared wheel arches make up for the rather sedan like front fascia. Get to the rear and you will be able to relate F-Pace with the rest of the Jaguars. That said, the rear side comes with the similar wrap around tail lights which is seen is other vehicles from the British car maker. The shape of the rear glass remains unchanged too, but what has changed is the bumper at the back, which seems a little unfamiliar that other models by Jaguar. Hop inside the cabin to be impressed by the lavish space and premium styling. One of the first things that you spot inside is the plush leather, high quality plastic material and wood trims that altogether lend an up-market look to the cabin.
Some of the advanced features that will be seen across range comprise of a 10.2-inch tablet-style touchscreen infotainment system, contrast coloured leather seats, a Virtual 12.3-inch HD instrument cluster with four visual themes and full-screen 3D navigation display, supplemented by laser head-up display, four zone climate control and rotary gear knob on the centre console. It also gets all-wheel drive (AWD) system and All Surface Progress Control (ASPC), Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, an Intelligent Speed Limiter, and Driver Condition Monitor systems.
Power will be drawn from the Ingenium family of engines which are claimed to be very frugal in nature. Apparently, there will be two petrol and two diesel engine choices. Petrol engines will include a 2.0-litre four cylinder engine capable of pulling off maximum power of 240 PS. The second gasoline engine will be a 3.0-litre V6 motor good for 380 PS of top power. While diesel variants will get power from a 2.0-litre, four cylinder mill tuned to release 180 PS and a 3.0-litre V6 powertrain outputting 337 Bhp. Except for the 2.0 litre, four cylinder engine, all the other motors will come equipped with an all wheel drive system.
