Jaguar E-PACE or F-PACE - How To Choose The Right Model For You

An Introduction to the Jaguar E-PACE

With a refreshed exterior, enhanced interior, the latest Pivi Pro infotainment, new vehicle architecture and a choice of powerful and efficient engines, including an advanced Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powertrain. The new Jaguar E-PACE is more assertive, connected, refined and efficient than ever.

The exterior design enhancements give Jaguar’s compact performance SUV a more assertive stance and luxurious appearance. At the front, the changes include a revised lower aperture incorporating a distinctive blade element. A new grille mesh design with diamond detailing is influenced by the Jaguar heritage logo and features a contemporary Noble Chrome finish, while new side fender vents feature the iconic Leaper emblem.

At the rear, the lower bumper features a new mesh insert which sits between the integrated tail pipes that are standard with four-cylinder petrol engines. All other engine derivatives gain new slim horizontal blade finishers. The all-LED rear lights are inspired by the all-electric I-PACE and feature Jaguar’s chicane graphic, showcasing the advanced technology and modernity of the overall design.

The interior of the new E-PACE features heightened luxury, enhanced connectivity and greater refinement. At the heart of the new interior is the integrated 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen at the centre of the dashboard, which controls the new Pivi Pro infotainment system. Chemically strengthened, the glass screen features two coatings; one which is anti-glare and a second which resists fingerprints.

The driver focussed interior also provides easier access to the larger stowage area in front of the new Drive Selector that houses the 15W wireless device charger. Driver touchpoints around the cluster are now wrapped in soft touch materials whilst the knee side contact area has been sculpted to provide improved luxury and comfort. And the new Drive Selector is just one of the many beautiful details, with a lower and wider and features an upper section finished with ‘cricket-ball’ stitching, the lower part being made of precision-engineered metal for enhanced tactility.

New E-PACE utilises Jaguar’s Premium Transverse Architecture, which has been designed and engineered to accommodate the latest electrified powertrain technologies. This includes the new three-cylinder P300e PHEV powertrain as well as the next-generation four-cylinder diesel and latest petrol Ingenium engines, which feature Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology.

Advanced features include intelligent All-Wheel Drive and smooth-shifting automatic transmissions, ensuring the new E-PACE delivers the confidence-inspiring dynamics, traction and refinement expected from a Jaguar.

Significant updates to the body architecture of the new E-PACE deliver enhanced dynamics, comfort and convenience. The new Premium Transverse Architecture features new engine mounts, which contribute to an improvement in throttle response. The new architecture also provides improved front suspension attachment point stiffness, delivering a more comfortable ride while retaining trademark Jaguar agility. The structure reduces vibration and harshness across the whole cabin, making it a tranquil sanctuary for all occupants, while also reducing cabin noise for enhanced comfort and refinement.

The new E-PACE’s AWD system utilises second generation ‘Standard Driveline’ technology, which automatically distributes the torque between the front and rear wheels to ensure traction is always maximised. And for the first time, Standard Driveline features Driveline Disconnect technology. During steady state cruising, the setup disengages the AWD system, sending power only to the front axle, delivering increased fuel efficiency.

Pivi Pro is fitted as standard to S, SE and HSE models and is optional on the core E-PACE derivative. Standard on this entry model is Pivi infotainment which supports navigation functionality via the driver’s smartphone using Apple Carplay®. Pivi also features Android Auto™ as standard. To enable almost instantaneous start-up, Pivi Pro has its own dedicated power source, so navigation is ready as soon as the driver is behind the wheel, while the embedded apps available – including Spotify, Deezer and TuneIn – provide full functionality even without your smartphone. Further connected features include Google and Microsoft Outlook calendar integration which enables the driver to view work diaries and even join important calls through the hands-free system.

Advanced SOTA connectivity enables customers to download and install software updates at home. Updates are downloaded in the background, with customers notified by an alert detailing the key changes. For updates that require the vehicle to be switched-off, customers can schedule a convenient time for installation.

Complementing the central 11.4-inch touchscreen is the latest 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display with enhanced graphics and a configurable layout which can show full screen navigation mapping with turn-by-turn instructions, digital dials, media, contact list or infotainment details. The interactive driver display works in conjunction with the latest generation full colour TFT Head-up Display which is brighter, with a larger information area and enhanced resolution.

Cabin Air Ionisation improves interior air quality through Nanoe technology, which removes allergens and unpleasant odours. The advanced system features PM2.5 filtration, which captures ultra-fine particles – including PM2.5 particulates – to improve occupant health and wellbeing and is activated by pressing the ‘Purify’ button within the central touchscreen. And for enhanced convenience, the second-generation wearable Activity Key can be used to lock, unlock and start the vehicle without the need for the conventional key fob to be present in the vehicle. The rechargeable device incorporates a watch and has a battery life of seven days between charges.

The new E-PACE also features Jaguar’s ClearSight Interior Rear View Mirror technology for the first time. The system brings improved convenience by ensuring the driver has an unobstructed view of the road behind. Using a wide angle rear-facing camera, the system feeds images to a high-definition screen within the frameless rear view mirror; unhindered by tall rear passengers, poor light or rain on the rear screen. The latest 3D Surround Camera technology delivers advanced 3D functionality using the latest camera technology to provide more detail and a choice of real-time viewing options when manoeuvring the vehicle. The selection of settings includes Junction View, 3D Perspective View, and ClearSight Plan View.

Jaguar’s Driver Condition Monitor technology is able to detect if the driver is beginning to feel drowsy and alert them to take a break. The technology uses inputs from thousands of data points, some of which are measured every one thousandth of a second – including steering, pedal inputs and general driving behaviour – to detect signs of tiredness. In addition, Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a set distance to the car in front, for more relaxed, enjoyable and less tiring long-distance journeys.

The new range-topping 300 SPORT is exclusively powered by the 300PS petrol engine and is capable of 0-60mph in just 6.6 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.9 seconds). It features a selection of the latest technologies for enhanced performance, including Active Damping, Adaptive Dynamics, Active Driveline and Configurable Dynamics.

Available in all exterior colours, it features 20-inch five-spoke Diamond-turned with Black accent wheels, Black Exterior Pack and powered tailgate. On the inside, illuminated Jaguar treadplates, Meridian Audio, Ebony Suedecloth headlining and R-Dynamic Taurus Sport seats in Ebony, Cloud or Deep Garnet all help to set the 300 SPORT apart.

The vehicle is specifically designed to enhance the front end with the new grille including noble chrome surround and noble chrome tips incorporating a three-dimensional mesh pattern that offers subtle links to the heritage logo.

New aero optimised front and rear bumpers use finishers on the lower part of the bumper to create visual differentiation between Core and R-Dynamic. The development of the front and rear of the vehicle increases the perceived width and provides a more sophisticated feel than the outgoing model. The front bumper on the Core vehicle includes lower vent ‘hoops’ with noble chrome blades, promoting its luxurious feel whilst the R-Dynamic incorporates gloss black finishers below the grille and has a noble chrome finish to the lower vent hoops instead of the Core noble chrome blades, creating a sportier feel.

Jaguar has also added Smart Active Vanes to F-PACE. They close on start to help the engine reach operating temperature sooner, and when cooling is not required, such as in steady-state cruise, they close to reduce drag. Fitment of this feature is market and powertrain dependant.

The F-PACE has an all-new interior with a heightened luxury, enhanced connectivity, and greater serenity and refinement.

JaguarDrive Control offers 4 different modes, Comfort, Eco, Rain Ice Snow, and Dynamic Mode.

At the heart of the new interior is a seamlessly integrated centrally-mounted 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen in an elegant magnesium alloy casing, which controls the new Pivi Pro infotainment system. Authentic finishes, including open-pore wood veneers and aluminium, feature in beautifully formed shapes such as the upper door insert and full width ‘Piano lid’ that is formed across the width of the instrument panel. Laser-etched mid-line speaker frets and the metallic rotary dial of the JaguarDrive Control epitomize the attention-to-detail.

Wireless Device Charging with Phone Signal Booster. This option also includes wireless signal boosting which provides significantly improved cellular signal. The charging pad is compatible with phones and other mobile devices that adhere to the Qi standard, including iPhone 8 / 8 Plus and later models | Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and later models | Google Pixel 3 / 3 XL and later models.

3D Surround Camera is now standard across the F-PACE range. This system provides a 3D 360° view around the vehicle and is able to display several views simultaneously on the touchscreen when maneuvering.

The new F-PACE is available with the P400e PHEV powertrain as well as the latest four-cylinder and new in-line six-cylinder petrol and diesel Ingenium engines. Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology is also available on selected engines for the first time. All F-PACE models feature intelligent all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmissions. Powered by advanced engines and based on Jaguar’s Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, the F-PACE delivers truly blistering performance. Thanks to its practicality, economy, and efficiency, you can experience the exhilaration virtually every day.

Jaguar F-PACE will now benefit from core vehicle functionality updates in addition to infotainment and telematics updates.

The software download must be successfully downloaded in full prior to installation.

And new F-PACE will move to the second generation Activity Key, which is a wearable wrist device that is waterproof and shock proof and functions as a normal car key with an enhanced LCD screen which can display the time and can be customised with a preferred strap. It allows customers to carry only the Activity Key where carrying a normal key may be inconvenient. The new device uses keyless entry without the need for a second key.
