Here we have a walk-around video of the new Jaguar F-Pace, the brand’s very first SUV model. Just launched here in Malaysia with a price of RM598,800, the F-Pace is sold here with just one engine option – a 3.0 litre supercharged V6 with 340 PS and 450 Nm of torque. Zero to 100 km/h is done in 5.8 seconds – not your typical SUV, then.
Well, a Jaguar SUV is never going to be a typical SUV. This one is rather different to the norm, and not at all related to the models from the other side of the Jaguar Land Rover company. It has more in common with the XE, XF and F-Type rather then the Range Rovers. It’s an SUV meant to stick to the roads, not go off it.
Shown here is the higher-spec F-Pace R Sport model, plus a few optional extras. It’s priced at RM658,800 (before options), which makes it a direct competitor to the similarly-powered Porsche Macan S (from RM610k, also before options). As you’ll see in the video above, the Jaguar is obviously the larger, more practical SUV.
