Reliability & safety Rating

4.0 out of 5

The Jaguar F-Pace isn't the most reliable model money can buy, but it's a safe place to be and owners rate it highly.

The F-Pace shares many mechanical elements with the XE and XF saloons, which are tried-and-tested, however, customers report that electrical faults are quite common. Safety is assured too, thanks to an excellent crash-test rating.

Jaguar F-Pace reliability

The Jaguar F-Pace finished in 40th place in our Driver Power survey last year but didn’t feature in 2020. Overall, Jaguar finished in 12th in our brand survey, with a worrying 25.6% of owners telling us they'd experienced at least one fault with their cars in the first year after purchase, with electrical gremlins the most common problem.


The Jaguar F-Pace has gone through independent Euro NCAP safety tests and received the full five stars, with an impressive 93% score for adult occupant protection. Jaguar fits all examples with autonomous emergency braking and emergency braking assistance, which help you to stop in a hurry or, if it detects you haven't reacted, will brake on your behalf if an obstacle strays into your path. This is on top of all those safety features like anti-lock-brakes and stability control that have to be fitted by law.
