2018 Jaguar F-Pace gets improved tech

Driver assistance, infotainment and convenience features added to the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace

Updates to the infotainment system and equipment fitted in the Jaguar F-Pace SUV will help keep it competitive against rivals including the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5. The changes across the F-Pace line-up arrive alongside the introduction of the range-topping F-Pace SVR with 542bhp.

Jaguar’s 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system is now fitted as standard, along with front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, autonomous emergency braking and lane keeping assist. Jaguar’s Driver Condition Monitor is also fitted to warn the driver to take a break if they appear drowsy.

The functionality of its adaptive cruise control has also been enhanced with Steering Assist, which can help keep the F-Pace driving in the middle of its lane on the motorway at speeds of up to 112mph. There’s also Stop & Go functionality that can automatically bring the car to a halt in traffic, with just a tap of the accelerator needed to resume proceedings. The forward-facing radar has also been updated to alert the driver or brake automatically if a potential collision is detected at speeds between 6mph and 99mph.

Customers will also be able to choose from three optional packs, with the Park Pack including a 360-degree bird’s-eye view camera system and rear traffic warnings. The Drive Pack includes adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go, blind spot warnings and High-Speed Emergency Braking, while a Driver Assist pack also adds the Steering Assist feature to the roster. For a particularly sporty look, buyers can also opt for slimline sports seats for the first time.

Mechanical changes are very minor, but do include new particulate filters for the petrol engines to reduce emissions and larger 82-litre fuel tanks (up from 63 litres) for some petrol models.

The Jaguar F-Pace costs from £36,520 for the 2.0-litre diesel with 161bhp in Prestige trim, while the F-Pace SVR is available from summer 2018, starting from £74,835.
