4.5 out of 5

It’s fair to say that if you’re in the market for a two-tonne, £35,000 SUV, you shouldn’t expect city-car-like efficiency, but as long as you avoid the petrol engines, Jaguar F-Pace running costs are unlikely to break the bank.

Jaguar F-Pace MPG & CO2

For a car of its type, both sizes of diesel engine offer reasonable fuel economy. The entry-level rear-wheel-drive 2.0-litre F-Pace manages up to 45.8mpg and emits 166g/km of CO2. The cheapest F-Pace costs £150 a year to tax but, as most cars are over £40,000, expect an additional supplement of £325 a year, bringing total road tax to £475 for years two to six.

Every F-Pace sits towards the top of the Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) bandings for company-car drivers, with most models occupying the top bracket. The entry-level 178bhp diesel engine manages up to 45.8mpg, or 41.9mpg if you choose four-wheel-drive, while the 236bhp 25d model drops to 40.8mpg.

As the 3.0-litre diesel is only available as a four-wheel-drive S or Portfolio with all the expensive trimmings, it costs about £15,000 more than an entry-level F-Pace. While it still offers a reasonable economy figure of up to 37.9mpg, it falls into the £475 road-tax bracket.

The petrol line-up starts with the 247bhp 25t engine, which is capable of returning up to 30.7mpg and emits 215g/km of CO2. The same 2.0-litre petrol is available with 296bhp in the 30t, and offers very similar economy to the 25t. At the top of the range sits the supercharged 5.0-litre SVR V8 petrol. It’s silky-smooth and makes the F-Pace seriously rapid, but the downside is 22.6mpg economy.

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. 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 23 for the entry-level diesel to 42 for the supercharged petrol and 3.0-litre diesel. We always suggest you check for cover before making a purchase decision.
