2017 Jaguar F-Pace
For those unsure about the “Pace” part of the name, they should be reminded that one of William Lyons’ maxims about the car brand he co-founded. He said that all Jaguar models had to have “grace, pace and space,” something that the SUV adheres to. As expected, the SUV’s styling is heavily inspired by the C-X17 line of concept cars that were presented back in 2013. A big reason for that is the overwhelmingly positive response to the 2014 Jaguar C-X17 concept. Knowing it had a hit prototype on its hands, Jaguar continued down that path for the F-Pace.
The result is an SUV that prominently features Jag’s current design language and is complemented by a series of high-powered engines. The company hopes it will serve as a successful springboard as it enters the increasingly competitive SUV segment.
