JAGUAR F-PACE 2016 DYNAMIC PREVIEWThe new Jaguar F-Pace will set new class benchmarks for ride and handling thanks in part to using Jaguar F-Type technology, claim Jaguar engineers.

The new F-Pace crossover, which will be revealed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show next month, will be “the most rewarding driver’s car of its kind” and offer “an unrivalled blend of dynamic ability”.

F-Type sports car technologies include Torque Vectoring and Jaguar is making great claims about the “exceptional feedback” from the electric power steering.

The F-Pace will use Jaguar’s new Lightweight Aluminium Architecture already seen in the well-received XE compact executive and XF executive saloon that Jaguar says helps make the F-Pace “incredibly responsive”.

Chief engineer Mike Cross added: “We haven’t made any compromises or exceptions: the new F-PACE must be a true Jaguar and deliver the Jaguar dynamics DNA.

“We’ve tested ride and handling to extremities in all environments and in all conditions, and the result is that the new F-Pace is as engaging and rewarding to drive as it is going to be enjoyable to own.”

The new Jaguar F-Pace, which will compete with the Porsche Macan and BMW X4, will receive its world debut on the eve of the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Solihull-built crossover SUV will go on sale in 2016. It is expected to cost from £35,000.
