JAGUAR F-PACE 19MY: NEW SAFETY TECHNOLOGY, INTERIOR ENHANCEMENTS AND 5.0-LITRE V8 SUPERCHARGED SVR

May 3rd, 2018 Whitley – Jaguar has announced a series of improvements to its award-winning F-PACE performance SUV.  The best-selling Jaguar delivers interior enhancements, the latest safety technology and additional consumer convenience features.

Joining the suite of driver assistance systems, Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist operates between 0-180km/h and uses the existing Adaptive Cruise Control functionality with Lane Centring to steer the vehicle within its lane as it maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front.

Other features include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go that allows the driver to follow a vehicle to a smooth stop and resume from stationary when the driver prompts the system by tapping the accelerator pedal.

The radar-based High-Speed Emergency Braking enables enhanced forward collision detection. The system works between 10-160km/h and is able to detect an imminent collision, alerting the driver and applying the brakes if the driver fails to respond.

Now fitted as standard, all customers will benefit from a Rear Camera, Front and Rear Parking Aids, Driver Condition Monitor, Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist.

The new optional safety packs make the buying process simpler than ever. The Park Pack includes Park Assist, Jaguar’s 360-degree Parking Aid and Rear Traffic Monitor while the Drive Pack provides Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Blind Spot Assist and High-speed Emergency Braking. The Driver Assist Pack combines the Park and Drive Packs and includes 360-degree Surround Camera and Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist.

Inside the F-PACE, Jaguar’s Touch Pro infotainment with a 10-inch touchscreen is fitted as standard, while new optional slimline sports seats featuring 14-way adjustment, adjustable bolsters and slimmer seatbacks are available.

The attention to detail continues with the frameless rear view mirror, illuminated metal treadplates with Jaguar script, bright metal pedals, premium carpet mats, suedecloth headlining, chrome seat switches on the 10-way adjustable seats and carbon fibre door finishes.**

For enhanced customer convenience, petrol derivatives of the 2019 model year F-PACE benefit from a larger 82-litre fuel tank (up from 63-litres).*

All petrol engines are now equipped with particulate filters to make them even cleaner.** The highly efficient, close-coupled filters are neatly integrated into the aftertreatment system and trap ultrafine particles as the exhaust gases pass through them. Under normal driving conditions, the trapped particles will be oxidised into CO2 and the filter regenerated whenever the driver lifts off the accelerator.

“The F-PACE has been critically acclaimed across the world and our performance SUV has more than 70 international awards to its name. We have updated our best-selling SUV with improved safety technology, additional convenience features and enhanced interior comfort. All of these changes deliver the experience our customers expect from a Jaguar.”
