2018 Jaguar F-PACE review: Our expert's take

By Rick Popely

Most significant changes: New performance SVR model with 550 horsepower. All models add standard emergency braking, lane keep assist, driver condition monitor, backup camera, and front and rear parking aids. An infotainment system with a 10-inch screen is standard on all trim levels, and one engine — the 340-horsepower V-6 for the 35t — has been dropped.

Price change: With the 35t no longer in the lineup, trim levels for remaining engines are pricier, rising from $1,000 to $2,535. The $995 destination charge is unchanged.

On sale: Late summer

Which should you buy, 2018 or 2019? Buy the 2018 if you’re looking to save some cash. All 2019 variants have more standard features but higher base prices.

Jaguar boosts the performance credibility of its F-Pace SUV for 2019 with the addition of the SVR, a new top-of-the-line model with a 550-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine, standard adaptive suspension and 21-inch wheels (22-inchers are optional). The SVR starts at $80,985 including destination.

Elsewhere in the F-Pace lineup, all models now have standard automatic emergency braking, lane departure steering assist, a driver condition monitor, a backup camera, and front and rear parking aids, some or all of which were optional last year. True lane-centering steering, previously unavailable, is now optional.

All trim levels also have a standard InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with a 10-inch screen, which supplants last year’s standard 8-inch screen. The F-Pace still does not come with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, though some smartphone apps can work with the InControl system.

Jaguar isn’t giving away all this stuff, however. Base prices are up $2,535, so the F-Pace now starts at $45,595 including destination. The luxury brand also trimmed the lineup by deleting 35t models, which used a supercharged 340-hp, 3.0-liter V-6. The lone V-6 model for 2019 is the S, which returns with a 380-hp version of the 3.0-liter.

Also returning are a turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline four-cylinder with 247 or 296 hp, depending on model, and a turbo 2.0-liter diesel four-cylinder with 180 hp. All models have an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive that operates in rear drive on dry roads and automatically transfers power to the front wheels as needed in slippery conditions.

The F-Pace offers a choice of four engines and capable performance in a stylish package that seats up to five with ample cargo room.

Excellent fuel efficiency in the diesel model

Excellent fuel efficiency in the diesel model; approximately 34/35mpg on country back roads and highway driving. The connectivity with Apple play is confusing to me as is the gps navigation system but that might just be a European way of designing the system. This mid size suv is lovely and elegant and something not everyone owns.

My wife loves this car

We were looking for a midsized SUV and this car met all my wife’s needs. She loved the way it drove, and really likes the cars appearance.

I love it!

I purchased a used 2018 Jaguar F-Pace with diesel, around 14,000 miles on it. Great legroom, good on snow and ice, dynamic and sport mode are super fun! The best is the mileage you get with it! I would recommend this car to anyone.
