Reliability & safety Rating

4.0 out of 5

The Jaguar F-Pace isn't likely to be the most reliable model money can buy, but it's a safe SUV 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 2019 Driver Power survey but didn’t feature in 2020 or 2021. Overall, Jaguar finished a decent 7th in our brand survey, and of the issues reported by owners electrical gremlins seem to be the most common problem.

Jaguar owners have told us high fuel bills are generally to be expected from the brand’s cars and that practicality is on the poor side; a complaint that shouldn't be too much of an issue in relation to the F-Pace. Comments were much more positive where ride and handling were concerned, and people generally love the way Jaguar’s cars look. 

Safety

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.
