Jaguar’s “Ultimate practical sports car” offers characteristics, unlike any other SUV. The front end enhancements include a redesigned bonnet deleting the current nose cone giving F-PACE a cleaner, more streamlined look whilst enhancing and making the grille look more prominent. 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 J-Blade signature headlights have moved above and beyond the previous design with a ‘thick to thin’ calligraphy line. The new slimmer lamps are packed with the latest advanced lighting technologies as well as a number of beautiful design details to further enhance the vehicles sophistication including the addition of optional sweeping directional indicators. Featuring a more assertive periphery, the new rear tailgate and valance have been designed to incorporate new full-LED chicane graphics on the tail lamps enhancing the vehicle’s technology and sophistication.
