New Jaguar F‑Pace Breaks World Record!

In a sensational, gravity-defying feat of bravery, international stunt driver Terry Grant, set a new world record by driving Jaguar’s ultimate practical sports car around the world’s highest loop-the-loop. The stunt not only showcases F‑PACE’s pure sports car DNA, but also marks, in spectacular style, the 80th anniversary of their iconic brand.

It’s definitely a yes for all those looking for spectacular features in a car. This one is diesel powered and has quite unique features.

Inspired by F-TYPE, the new Jaguar F-PACE is a performance SUV that has the DNA of a sports car. From the bonnet bulge to the pronounced rear haunches, its powerful looks make it distinctive and give it a head-turning road presence. F-PACE reinvents the energy, strength and purity of form of F-TYPE.

F-PACE gives the user a state-of-the-art technology, such as Head-up Display and Activity Key, as well as advanced driving aids to make every journey easier and more relaxed. F-PACE is brought to life through the power of its engines combined with Jaguar’s Lightweight Aluminium Architecture. Together they deliver thrilling performance and impressive fuel economy. F-PACE is now available to be experience yourself.

About Diesel?

There’s no escaping the fact it’s diesel powered. All that torque may ensure it’s blooming fast when you want it to be, but it doesn’t sound good when you’re heavy on the throttle. Traditionally, that’s the trade-off when you opt for the fuel savings of a diesel. But Audi – with its tuneful BiTDI engine – has proved that doesn’t have to be the case.

The Jag has a very muscular engine, though, and with the aid of its nicely judged, standard eight-speed automatic gearbox, it’s as effortless as you’d hope for when you’re using it to cruise along sedately. Under which conditions it’s exceedingly hushed, too.

Does it drive like an SUV?

It’s sportily setup for an SUV, with a rear-biased, part-time four-wheel-drive system that shuffles power to the front axle only when the conditions demand it. But that doesn’t make this daft or lairy. It’s still a big, tall car, and if you try to hustle it along quickly it’ll frustrate. Those athletic looks belie a big old car, and it never shrinks around you quite as you hope. A Porsche Macan is defter to drive.

Drive a little below the F-Pace’s limits, though, keeping your steering and throttle inputs smooth, and it certainly exhibits more agility than its Land Rover relatives. The steering has a pleasing amount of weight to it, giving you confidence in its responses. People spend money on high-riding AWD cars to feel cocooned when the weather turns tough, and for that, the F-Pace feels well-judged.

How does it ride on rough roads?

The car came on 22-inch wheels, hence, in urban areas speedbumps and potholes require caution.There are plenty of wheel options, ranging from 18 inches upwards, and the company recommends going smaller, particularly if your commute is quite urban.

How is it inside?

It’s all nicely put together and ergonomically slick. Jaguar can make a character-rich interior, as the XJ limo proves, but this one appears to have been designed with ease of use and wide global appeal in mind.

You’ll be less precious about sticking the family in it, though, while Jag’s latest infotainment systems are top notch. The F-Pace’s seats are extraordinarily comfy, and it’s so quiet inside. You’d have to drive hundreds of miles to feel the remotest bit fatigued!

Hope you already like this latest in technology!
