Jaguar SUVs

The full guide to the F-Pace and future Jaguar SUVs - including an all-electric one

Jaguar may have launched the famous E-Type sportscar, but it has more recently been known as the chairman’s choice: a company that produces luxurious and sporty saloon cars that are much admired but bought in small numbers.

But things are changing. Last year, the F-Pace became the company’s first sport utility vehicle (SUV), offering buyers a high driving position, extra interior space and the ability to go off-road, along with performance and cornering stability that makes it sporty to drive.

In just over a year, the company will have a range of three SUVs. A smaller version of the F-Pace will be launched in July, badged the E-Pace. And that will be followed by the all-electric I-Pace next year.

It’s a sign of just how popular such vehicles have become, and the profits that car companies can make from these vehicles: the F-Pace now accounts for half of all Jaguar sales.

Jaguar E-Pace

On sale Late 2017
Best Jaguar SUV for young families  Not so good if you want one this year

The E-Pace will be the smallest Jaguar SUV when it goes on sale later this year. It’s being unveiled next month when we’ll see how it compares with rivals, which include the Audi Q3 and BMW X1.

Underneath the Jaguar badge are mechanical parts that are shared with its sister company Land Rover, which uses them in the Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque.

Unlike these cars, the new E-Pace won’t be designed to go off-road: it’ll trade the ability to crawl through rugged terrain, for smoother, more stable and sportier performance on tarmac.

Jaguar’s marketing department says that the new model "combines sports car design and agility with everyday SUV practicality". Four wheel drive will be an option, but many drivers will opt for the less expensive and cheaper-to-run two-wheel drive versions.

Unlike the Land Rover Discovery Sport, there will be a petrol engine option, in addition to diesel, while a hybrid E-Pace is also expected.

The E-Pace goes on sale later this year at prices starting around £28,500.

Jaguar F-Pace

Best Jaguar SUV for a large family  Not so good for going off-road

The F-Pace is the only Jaguar SUV that you can buy today, and it was a long time coming, being launched more than a decade after the BMW X3 and Audi Q5.

But it’s instantly proved a hit for Jaguar, and rightly so, with a blend of style, family-friendly practicality, and performance. The driving experience comes close to the luxurious and fun-to-drive feel of a sporting saloon like the BMW 5 Series or Jaguar XF, with the extra benefits of an SUV.

Like most SUVs, the F-Pace is not designed for serious off-road use (that’s the job of Land Rovers). There are four-wheel-drive versions but the system is set up for better performance on slippery roads or muddy fields rather than hauling you through swamps.

Among its many virtues is a range of powerful but economical diesel engines, including the pick of the range: a 180 horsepower (hp) version, which can accelerate from 0-62mph in 8.9 seconds. Fuel economy is reasonable for a big car - you can expect around 43.5mpg, according to the Equa Index, which produces real-world mpg estimates based on public road testing.

New prices starts at around £34,500, before any Jaguar F-Pace discounts, which is expensive for a family car, but £10,000 less than the cheapest Porsche Macan. Demand for used cars is high, so it retains its value well too.

The high quality interior of the F-Pace can’t quite match the style and luxuriousness of an Audi Q5 or BMW X3 but isn’t at all shabby, with leather seats, an 8in touchscreen and sat nav as standard.

It’s a big bigger than an Audi Q5 but not quite as large as an Audi Q7, so there’s plenty of room in the front and back, but not enough space for seven seats.

Jaguar I-Pace

Best Jaguar SUV for Avoiding the London congestion charge  Not so good if your home hasn't got a charging point

Jaguar is expected to be the first mass-market manufacturer to take on Tesla with an all-electric SUV next year, in the form of the I-Pace.

It’s no half-hearted effort because the new car isn’t just an F-Pace with an electric motor and a few batteries. Instead, it’s an all-new design that makes the most of the freedom that comes from having no engine to squeeze under the bonnet, or hefty mechanical parts to connect the engine to the wheels.

In theory, that should make the I-Pace spacious and lighter than some electric car rivals.

It also makes it easier to install the batteries as low as possible in the car, to reduce leaning in corners. Acceleration should rival some sports cars and the I-Pace is expected to have a range of around 300 miles on a single charge.

It’s likely to take around 90 minutes to recharge the batteries to 80% capacity, with a full charge taking around two hours. The I-Pace is expected to cost from around £60,000 when it goes on sale next year.
