MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

4.0 out of 5

It’s fair to say that if you’re in the market for a two-tonne SUV, you shouldn’t expect city car-like efficiency, but as long as you avoid the larger engines, Jaguar F-Pace running costs are unlikely to break the bank.

Jaguar F-Pace MPG & CO2

Jaguar discontinued the entry-level D165 2.0-litre diesel model for 2023, so the more-powerful D200 variant is now the cheapest F-Pace you can buy. Thanks to mild-hybrid assistance, this can officially return up to 44.9mpg on the combined WTLP test cycle, though in normal driving you’ll probably see closer to 35mpg. CO2 emissions of 165-170g/km of CO2 are almost irrelevant – all versions cost more than £40,000 and are therefore liable for an additional VED (road tax) surcharge, while company car drivers are likely to take greater interest in the frugal plug-in hybrid.

If diesel is still your fuel of choice, we’d recommend taking a look at the silky-smooth six-cylinder D300, which trades a little fuel economy for extra power. Jaguar claims this version will return up to 37.6mpg and emit 197-199g/km of CO2.

The three petrol models are best-reserved for lower-mileage users; the base P250 will return just 30mpg, while emitting 213-250g/km of CO2. The six-cylinder P400 is thirstier still, offering up to 28.8mpg. Finally, the range-topping SVR model will officially do just 23.2mpg from its monstrous 5.0-litre V8 engine – although expect much lower figures if you plan to make use of all the power that’s on offer.

As part of the 2023 range update, Jaguar increased the size of the P400e plug-in hybrid’s battery to 19.2kWh (up from 17.1kWh). This means the plug-in F-Pace now offers a pure-electric range of up to 40 miles, which should broaden its appeal. The fact it nudges that 40-mile mark in official tests means it now sits in the 8% Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) tax band for company car drivers – an improvement on the previous 12% rating. Keep the battery charged up and the P400e can return an impressive 176.6mpg and emit just 37g/km of CO2.

Charging the battery to 80% takes just over 1.5 hours using a 7kW wallbox, while 35kW fast charging is also possible, cutting the top-up time to just 30 minutes. The larger BMW X5 xDrive45e has a bigger battery, giving it an EV range of more than 50 miles, but it's also more expensive to buy.

Warranty

Jaguar provides a three-year warranty for the F-Pace, which is about standard for this class of car – although you can extend this at an additional cost. Jaguar customer satisfaction is up, but faults are still common; if you're planning to keep hold of your car for a few years, buying an extended warranty could be a shrewd move.

Servicing

Service intervals are one a year or every 21,000 miles and you can purchase five-year/50,000-mile service plans, priced according to fuel type. Your Jaguar dealer will be able to suggest the plan that best suits your needs.

Insurance

Insurance groups for the Jaguar F-Pace range from 36 for the entry-level diesel to 49 out of 50 for the supercharged V8 SVR model. We always suggest you check for cover before making a purchase decision, especially as the F-Pace is more expensive to insure than rivals.
