The variants and specifications of the upcoming F-Pace have been revealed by Jaguar and Land Rover India on the official website. The first crossover to be sold under the Jaguar brand, the F-Pace had been unveiled at Auto Expo 2016 and the market launch is expected towards the end of this year.
In India, the crossover will be sold in three variants â€“ Pure, Prestige and R-Sport. The first two variants will be powered by a four-cylinder 2.0-litre diesel engine that develops 177bhp at 4,000rpm and 430Nm of torque in the range of 1,750rpm to 2,500rpm. The engine will propel F-Pace's Pure and Prestige variants to reach 100kmph speed in 8.7 seconds before reaching top speed of 208kmph. The R-Sport and First Edition will be powered by a six-cylinder 3.0-litre diesel engine that develops 296bhp at 4,000rpm and 700Nm of torque at 2,000rpm onwards. The engine powers top variants to zoom past 100kmph in 6.2 seconds and can reach 241kmph. Both the engines are mated to eight-speed automatic transmission and automatic AWD system.
The performance crossover from Jaguar has a sharp design with angular edges. The headlamp design of the crossover has been inspired from the XE sedan while the trail lamps have been taken from the F-Type. The new model rides on aluminium-intensive platform.
