You could well describe the new Jaguar F-Pace as the most commercially vital new car in decades.It’s the first time Jaguar has dipped its corporate toes into the lucrative SUV pond and the company needs this car to be a financial success if its future is to be secure.The F-Pace is available in four trim levels and all cars are well equipped.The entry-level Prestige model has leather seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights and an electric bootlid, as well as DAB digital radio, sat nav and on-board wi-fi.In an interview with our sister title, Auto Express, Jaguar’s design director Ian Callum said he wanted to make a “Jaguar shaped like a crossover, [not] a crossover pushed into the shape of a Jaguar.” There’s no doubt the F-Pace has borrowed elements of its design from other members of the Jaguar family, however.The headlights are very reminiscent of the Jaguar XE executive saloon, while the slender taillights are just about direct copies of those found on the Jaguar F-Type sports car.

The F-Pace’s diesel engines are likely to be the best sellers, and while the 2.0-litre is capable of 0-62mph in 8.9 seconds and returns 57.7mpg, the 3.0-litre is likely to be a better car to drive.Up against rivals like the BMW X3, Audi Q5, Porsche Macan, Mercedes GLC and even the Land Rover Discovery Sport, the Jaguar F-Pace has to impress against these competitors if it’s going to be a success.There’s no denying that the F-Pace is one of the prettier SUVs available.There was a limited-run First Edition model that cost more than £65,000, but it sold out very quickly.One of the biggest challenges faced by the design team at Jaguar was combining the apparently conflicting requirements of a slinky, elegant Jaguar and the bulky bodywork of a big, tough SUV.
