Whitley, UK, 3 May 2018 – Jaguar has announced a series of improvements to its award-winning
F-PACE performance SUV. The best-selling Jaguar delivers interior enhancements, the latest safety technology and additional consumer convenience features.
Joining the suite of driver assistance systems, Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist operates between 0-180km/h and uses the existing Adaptive Cruise Control functionality with Lane Centring to steer the vehicle within its lane as it maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front.
Other features include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go that allows the driver to follow a vehicle to a smooth stop and resume from stationary when the driver prompts the system by tapping the accelerator pedal.
The radar-based High-Speed Emergency Braking enables enhanced forward collision detection. The system works between 10-160km/h and is able to detect an imminent collision, alerting the driver and applying the brakes if the driver fails to respond.
Inside the F-PACE, Jaguar’s Touch Pro infotainment with a 10-inch touchscreen is fitted as standard, while new optional slimline sports seats featuring 14-way adjustment, adjustable bolsters and slimmer seatbacks are available.
The attention to detail continues with the frameless rear view mirror, illuminated metal treadplates with Jaguar script, bright metal pedals, premium carpet mats, suedecloth headlining, chrome seat switches on the 10-way adjustable seats and carbon fibre door finishes.**
For enhanced customer convenience, petrol derivatives of the 2019 model year F-PACE benefit from a larger 82-litre fuel tank (up from 63-litres).*
“The F-PACE has been critically acclaimed across the world and our performance SUV has more than 70 international awards to its name. We have updated our best-selling SUV with improved safety technology, additional convenience features and enhanced interior comfort. All of these changes deliver the experience our customers expect from a Jaguar.” Nick Collins, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar Land Rover
