With the plug-in hybrid version of the F-Pace, Jaguar offered a good option for a luxurious, compact-sized, SUV for the market.
It offered good performances as well.
When most of the car-makers started to switch their attention toward the increasing SUV market, Jaguar just had to ask its sister-company Land Rover to help them. The result was the 2016 Jaguar F-Pace built on the same platform with the Range Rover Velar. In 2020, the British brand introduced a plug-in hybrid version, which proved to be an interesting vehicle with a fair electric range for the urban daily commute and a powerful drivetrain useful for long-distance trips.
The 2020 F-Pace featured a restyled front end, with a smoother hood and LED headlights. There was an option for pixel-LED, which analyzed and adapted the lights if any oncoming traffic appeared. For the plug-in hybrid version, it featured fewer air-vents in the front. The big bumper featured three air-intakes, to complement the radiator grille and cool the brakes. In the rear, the same slim taillights as before were slightly redesigned and featured LED as well.
The interior was luxurious, with the Jaguar standards. The instrument cluster featured a centrally-mounted tachometer with the speedometer in the middle, on a TFT display, with two other screens on the left and right of it. On the center stack, there was a completely new infotainment system, with an 11.4” curved-glass HD touchscreen. On the center console, there was a gear-selector with a lever, instead of the already known rotary knob.
Under the hood, the F-Type offered a choice of gasoline, diesel, and hybrid engines ranged between 250 hp and 404 hp. The latter was offered as a plug-in hybrid as well.
