The new Jaguar F-Pace, boasting refreshed exterior styling, a beautifully crafted all-new interior, new engine options and latest generation Pivi Pro infotainment systems, is now available in South Africa.
The award-winning F-Pace SUV features a cleaner presence thanks to a new sculpted bonnet with a wider power bulge and smoother, more defined surfaces. The new bonnet also contributes to a more striking finish by reducing the number of shutlines on the front of the car. The front bumper receives redesigned air intakes and dark mesh details for a more dynamic presence.
New slim all-LED quad headlights with ‘Double J’ Daytime Running Light (DRL) signatures, are available with optional Pixel LED technology. Adaptive Driving Beam capability evaluates the road ahead and automatically adapts the high beam light to mask oncoming traffic or traffic signs. The system can create varying light beam patterns by selecting different LED segments to optimise visibility without distracting other drivers.
At the heart of the new interior is a centrally-mounted 11.4-inch curved-glass HD Pivi Pro touchscreen in a magnesium alloy casing. New finishes, including open-pore wood veneers and aluminium, can be found in the upper door insert and full width ‘Piano lid’ that is formed across the width of the instrument panel. The screen is three times brighter and 48% larger than the previous 10-inch screen, and the simplified menu structures allow drivers to access or view up to 90 percent of common tasks from the homescreen in two taps or less. The intuitive new infotainment system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
The F-Pace now also features a 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display with a configurable layout which can show full-screen navigation mapping with turn-by-turn instructions, digital dials, media, contact list or infotainment details.
The new F-Pace is available in South Africa with two diesel and three petrol engine options, all featuring all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmissions.
