JAGUAR F-PACE FACELIFT features big on a major cabin update

You may not notice that Jaguar has issued a significant nip-and-tuck on its F-Pace for 2021 straight up. But swing the door open and you’ll find a completely new cabin. Also new is a plug-in hybrid under the bonnet.

The big news is inside, where F-pace gains a giant 11.4-inch central Pivi Pro infotainment monitor dominating the centre dash. Now backed by its own power supply so that it boots up faster and comes with Apple Carplay, Android Auto and all the rest.

The plug-in hybrid gets an individually adjustable 12.3-inch screen instrumentation. There’s yet another new Drive Selector, redesigned door panels with bigger shelves and an ionisation micro filter too.

F-PACE visual changes are ACTUALLY quite extensive

Although it may not seem so at first sight, the visual changes are quite extensive. There’s a new 3D radiator grille and more aggro bonnet, J-shaped LED daytime running lights and a revised bumpers with fresh venting up front. A sporty R-Dynamic specification can also be supplemented by a Black Pack with body parts and elements in glossy black.

The P400e plug-in hybrid has a 2-litre 4-pot turbo petrol teamed up with a 105 kW e-motor for a 297kW 640Nm system output and 0-100km/h in 5.3 seconds. Its 17.1 kW-hour lithium-ion battery is good for 59km electric range and it direct current charges 80% in half an hour at 32kW. Full charge happens in 2 hours using a 7kW home wall box.

F-Pace also debuts Jaguar’s new straight-six Ingenium engines. There’s a 223kW variable turbine geometry sequential bi-turbodiesel D300 and 300kW turbo petrol. Add 2-litre 125kW D165 and 150kW D200 mild hybrid 4-cylinder turbodiesels with 48-volt starter generator and a lithium-ion battery. And a 185kW 2-litre turbo petrol.

All models get ZF eight-speed automatics and all-wheel drive. Jaguar DriveControl alters steering, transmission, throttle and damper between Comfort, Eco, Slippery and Dynamic modes.
