The Jaguar F-Pace came to South Africa in early 2016 and contributed significantly to unit sales of the Jaguar range, soon becoming the best- selling model in the line-up. By November 2016 the F-Pace had sold 304 units followed by the XE at 228 units, F-Type at 153 units and XF with 148 units. The XJ was losing ground at this stage only managing to sell 19 units.

Now in August 2021 Jaguar have upgraded the F-PACE SUV to ensure the model continues to sell and be appealing to Jaguar customers. New refreshing style, a beautifully crafted all-new interior, new engine options and the latest generation Pivi Pro infotainment systems are now all available in SA.

The exterior design has been altered with a new sculptured bonnet with power bulge and smoother more precisely defined surfaces.  Enlarged grille with Jaguar’s heritage logo-inspired ‘diamond’ detailing and side fender vents with the iconic Leaper emblem. To complete the front end the newly designed bumper receives air intakes and dark mesh detail along with super slim all-LED quad headlights.

The premium LED tech is fitted as standard across the range and is available with Auto High Beam Assist on the SE and HSE models. Adaptive Driving Beam capability evaluates the road ahead and automatically adapts the high beam light to mask oncoming traffic or traffic signs.

From the rear the new slimline taillights feature Jaguars double chicane graphic, and a new sculptured tailgate adds to the new look SUV. A Black exterior pack is available with elements finished in gloss black.

Inside you will find a centrally mounted 11.4-inch curved glass HD Privi Pro touchscreen in magnesium alloy casing. Other new finishes include open-pore wood veneers and aluminium applied to the upper door inserts and the full-width of the “piano lid” that is formed across the width of the instrument panel. New door casings now feature 360-degree grab handles, increased storage for drinks bottles and other items.

New seat design with wider cushioning and new massage functions and enhanced coverage to the heated and cooled seats. Two new additional features are the optional Cabin Air ionisation and Cabin Air Purification systems.

To keep connected the new infotainment system has a 11.4-inch HD touchscreen which is three times brighter and 48% larger than before. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are fitted as standard allowing two phones to connect simultaneously via Bluetooth. Wireless device charger and phone signal boosting allows occupants to fast charge their smart phones.

Driver Display is from a 12.3-inch HD Interactive full-screen and include benefits from latest generation driver assist technology. Wearable Activity Key can be used to lock and unlock and start the vehicle without the need for the conventional key fob to be present in the vehicle.
