Jaguar F-PACE

Jaguar is launching two very exciting new additions to its multi-award-winning F-PACE line-up - the performance-focused 300 SPORT and the feature-packed Chequered Flag. The 300 SPORT comes with a choice of two 300PS AWD engines; the 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol and 3.0-litre V6 diesel. The petrol version boasts 400Nm of torque and can power its way to 62mph from standing start in 6.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 145mph, while the V6 diesel-driven car has 700Nm torque and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 6.4 seconds, maxing out at 150mph.

The new 300 SPORT edition is identified by 22-inch grey alloy wheels and distinctive Dark Satin Grey exterior detailing. Starting with the front grille surround, this extends to the side window surrounds, side vents, mirror caps and door finishers, as well as the rear valance. With 300 SPORT badges on the front grille and rear tailgate, it is available exclusively in Yulong White, Indus Silver and Santorini Black.

Step inside and the yellow contrast stitching on the instrument panel, centre console and leather seats provide a unique feel to the interior. The 300 SPORT logo is badged on the treadplates, carpet mats and steering wheel and is also embossed on the front headrests. On-board technology includes Touch Pro Navigation with Connect Pro that enables the driver to control essential features remotely. Jaguar’s 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display provides a customisable and intuitive driver interface. A Meridian sound system, panoramic roof and 14-way heated electric front seats with memory also form part of the standard specification. There are also a number of optional features.

The 300 SPORT gets £8,430 of added extras compared with the petrol 300PS R-Sport but at a price of less than £5,000 more. In the case of the diesel 300 SPORT, buyers get £4,555 of added value over the F-PACE ‘S’ for just £500 more. The Chequered Flag version is based on the F-PACE R-Sport model and has a range of 2.0-litre AWD powertrains, beginning with the more performance-focused 250PS 2.0-litre AWD Ingenium petrol, which powers the car from 0-62mph in 7.0 seconds and on to a top speed of 135mph. Diesel units are also available in 240PS and 180PS form, with the latter providing up to 41.9mpg.

The Chequered Flag F-PACE comes with a distinctive exterior that includes a sports front bumper and striking gloss black detailing on the front grille, door cladding, side vents and roof rails. There are 20-inch Gloss Black alloy wheels as standard, but customers can opt for 22-inch alloy wheels for even more striking looks. The Chequered Flag is available in Yulong White, Santorini Black and a new Eiger Grey colour.

Inside, the cabin has a seamless blend of luxurious materials and crafted finishes, with features such as leather trim, meshed aluminium detailing and Chequered Flag treadplates. Creature comforts include 10-way electric front seats, a panoramic roof, Touch Pro Navigation, Meridian Sound System, reconfigurable 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display and the Touch Pro infotainment system as standard. Chequered Flag models include £5,810-worth of additional equipment compared with the F-PACE R-Sport, but with a price that is less than £3,400 more expensive. And finally, there is great news for owners who rely heavily on their smartphones. Land Rover has announced the introduction of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across the entire F-PACE range.
