Jaguar Ups the (F-)PACE

Ending 2016 with a roar.

For those looking for a new SUV, you might want to pay attention, as Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd has launched the new Jaguar F-PACE performance SUV – which incidentally is Jaguar’s first-ever SUV – in Malaysia.

Touted as the ‘world’s ultimate practical sports car’, the F-PACE currently comes in two variants – Prestige and R-Sport. At their core is a 340PS 3.0-litre supercharged V6 petrol engine, allowing the F-PACE to accelerate from 0-100kph in a mere 5.8 seconds before reaching an electronically-limited top speed of 250kph.

According to Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia Sdn Bhd Managing Director Datuk Aishah Ahmad, the F-PACE is set to appeal to a new crowd altogether.

“We now have an amazing new product that will meet the needs of discerning customers who like the practicality of an SUV, the drivability of a sports car and the prestige of an iconic marque. Compared to other luxury SUVs in its segment, the All-New F-PACE offers a better proposition all-round – better drive, better looks and better technology.”

To match the active lifestyle associated with SUVs, and to meld into the world of wearable technology, Jaguar introduced an optional accessory to accompany the F-PACE, the Activity Key – a waterproof, shockproof wristband with an integrated transponder. A first for this segment, it allows the keyfob to be securely locked inside the vehicle – a godsend if you’re looking to keep your keyfob protected from the elements. Locking the F-PACE using the Activity Key will disable any keyfobs left inside.

Every All-New F-PACE comes with Jaguar Care, which comprises a five-year warranty and five years of free servicing plus three years of Jaguar Roadside Assistance.
