LA Auto Show: 2017 Jaguar F-Pace

Posted by

Making its North American auto show debut in LA is Jaguar’s 2017 F-Pace performance SUV, with its compelling styling and full feature set.


What Is It?

The 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is the company’s first SUV, and so it has a lot to prove to wear the Jaguar label, which typically evokes images of sinewy sedans and sports cars. First impressions are promising: the bulky body has much of the F-Type’s fluidity, and there are tech and safety features to spare. Prices for this medium-sized SUV start at $42,390.


What Jaguar Says:

Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design:

“We designed the all-new F-Pace to be first and foremost a Jaguar. That’s why it has exciting proportions, a dynamic stance, pure surfaces and a beautiful sensuality about it. Its progressive, purposeful appearance has clearly been influenced by the F-Type.

Every Jaguar car should draw your eye from 200 meters away and I believe the presence of the all-new F-Pace on the road is second to none in this class.”


What’s New For 2017:

  • New model in a new segment for Jaguar
  • Lightweight aluminum architecture
  • Available 10.2-inch Jaguar InControl Touch Pro capacitive touch screen
  • Instrument cluster is a 12.3-inch HD screen with full navigation capability
  • Available InControl Wi-Fi can connect up to eight devices
  • Available ActiveKey wearable interior entry technology, which allows you to gain access after locking the fob in the car during your more extreme outdoorsy activities
