This is the new Jaguar F pace. I know what you’re thinking it’s taken Jaguar a blooming age to finally release an SUV but I tell you it’s so worth the wait. This is a beautiful looking car in fact it makes me very proud to be British in fact let’s just take a moment and revel in a spot of Britishness. Anyway that’s enough for that and I know some of you might be thinking that well it’s in jag you are owned by Tata which is Indian well let’s forget about because this car it’s designed it’s engineered and it’s built in Britain and what a fabulous looking machine it is though.
You do have to pay for that because this pace starts at 35,000 pounds and if you click up there to go to Colorado UK you can compare deals from top dealers and buy a price. You’re confident in not average people save three thousand six hundred pounds on new car through car Wow and the great thing about the F pace is that while it is absolutely beautiful it’s also very very practical arise. The boot alloys so this is one of the biggest boots in its class is hardly need low lip to lift stuff across some underfloor storage and there’s there is tethering points here here here 12 volt socket there so you can plug.
Your Hoover and Hoover at the boot now you can get this car with 3-way split folding rear seats unfortunately definitely leaning in too low the seats you fall down the middle one and then fall down this other one there and you can see you’ve got a pretty much light load bay. That makes it dead ease to slide big items straight towards the front of the car so yeah very very practical death pace so let’s check out the space in the back now I’ll just move these seats out of the way actually. That’s pretty heavy so the doors stay open nice and wide which makes it really easy to get in and the seats are kind of at hip height so you can just glide straight across into your seating position so as you can see if I’m sitting up dead straight lots of knee room head rooms alright even though.
This car has the optional glass roof and yet people over six foot will be fine back here and there’s some cool creature comforts as well so if you want to can fold this down you got some cup holders there and this is really, useful you’ve got two USB sockets down there and another 12 volt socket so if you got three people in the back everybody, can charge their mobile device it’s not all perfect though so first of all these seats are quite hard but then I guess it is a sporty car.
The backs feel quite upright as well but you can get it with optional electrically reclining rear seats but you do have to pay extra for those more of a problem is this you’ve got huge hump in the floor so if you want to carry three in the back at once there’s not much room for them to put their feet because the runners for the chair in front do eat into the foot space.
This middle seat I mean there’s enough Headroom but it is quite Ferb and on the whole this car isn’t as good at carrying three people in the back, at one to say a Land Rover Discovery sport or a Ford Edge now click up there to watch our in-depth practicality also be able to see how easy it is to fit a child seat here in the back of the F pace. Just how much stuff we could cram into this cars boot speaking of practicality actually look at this so the rear door bins are huge they can fit a 1.5 liter bottle.
If I go to the front of the car the no bends are equally as huge here however you don’t buy an F pace for its could be spacing out do you buy for the way it looks and it’s just a sporty here on the inside as it is on the outside I mean I really love the interior design of this car well I’m not so keen on is some of the quality of the materials so materials here here and here all a bit flimsy in there just not in keeping with this cars expensive price so the model to go for is the Osborne.
It’s pretty much got all you need you’ve got 19-inch alloy wheels you’ve got xenon headlamps you’ve got all-round parking sensors you’ve got cruise control you’ve got leather heated seats and you even get hide upon the dash which is a nice touch you also get a standard 1/8 inch infotainment screen it’s alright but it’s not the slickest.
what you’re better off doing is upgrading to the pro version that’s excellent much more efficient much nicer to use it’s a bit like comparing an iPhone 7 to the iPhone 4 in the standard system obviously is the iPhone 4 and you can see why by clicking it there to watch our detailed infotainment now though it’s time to hit the road. So, how does the F pace feel to drive well the best way to describe it is sporting so you feel like you’re just like in any other Jaguar only you’re sitting higher up so you get a better view out over traffic though I have to say that visibility is important as you might expect you see the view out the back window is atrocious and I think funny little bit hard to place the corners of the car so it’s not quite as easy to maneuver around tow.
