The 2018 Jaguar F-Pace is a sleek and sporty new offering in the compact luxury SUV segment, though by size it sits in between the compact and midsize classes. Jaguar offers various trim levels and packages dependent on powertrain selection, so the possible F-Pace combinations are numerous.
The 2018 F-Pace is available in base, Premium, Prestige, R-Sport, S and Portfolio trim levels. There are four available engines that determine which trims are available. The new turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four can be specified in base to R-Sport trims; the upgraded version of this engine, the Premium through the limited-edition Portfolio; the 2.0-liter diesel, the Premium through R-Sport trims; and the 3.0-liter supercharged V6, the Premium through the Portfolio trim (plus the S version). While the base trim enjoys luxuries such as a panoramic sunroof, keyless ignition, a power liftgate and an 11-speaker sound system, the higher trims have access to even more comfort and active driving aids such as adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition and a 360-degree camera system.
Stepping up one level to the Premium trim adds features such as larger 19-inch wheels and a rearview camera, and it opens up access to packages that include adaptive xenon headlights and the first tier of active safety aids such as automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and blind-spot monitoring. One level above this is the Prestige trim, which (oddly) is the level that you gain some luxury basics including keyless entry and a folding rear armrest. It also includes niceties such as leather upholstery and a power-adjustable steering wheel.
The R-Sport and S trims are where the F-Pace becomes more performance-focused and aggressively styled with unique bumpers and design elements, and buyers can decide if they want an extra 40 horsepower out of their supercharged V6. The wheels grow another notch to 20 inches, there's more substantial bolstering in the front seats to better hold you in place when cornering, and an adaptive suspension can be added to help keep the F-Pace's tires glued to the road (standard on the S, optional on the R-Sport and Prestige).
For those who are interested in maximum luxury, the Portfolio trim is where you should start. It essentially comes with everything, including an even more premium leather interior, a four-zone automatic climate control, interior ambient lighting and a cooled glove compartment to name a few. All of the driver assistant aids — such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, speed-limit notification, a surround-view camera system and an automatic parking system — are also included. Though the Portfolio starts out more expensive than the power-leading S trim, it's possible to option the F-Pace S to a higher total than a fully loaded Portfolio model.
When the F-Pace debuted last year, it offered a V6 engine at a four-cylinder price, giving it a big advantage over the competition. With the new base engine for 2018, the F-Pace isn't as much of a bargain, though it still stacks up fairly well and isn't the priciest in the group when comparing option for option. If you're considering the F-Pace, you can compare it against its entire segment right here on Edmunds.

Vehicle 35t Prestige 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl S/C 8A)
Review Paid little more for 2018 model but wanted to have most of the initial quality issues to be solved. So far after 700miles of driving no major issues. Car drives perfectly. Its spacious, quick, comfortable (after adjusting tire pressure which was to high initially) and corners like a sedan. Also interior, in contrary to many reviews, feels fine. No squeaks, rattles etc and materials are quite pleasant. Audio system is very good as well as navigation (after couple of days I've stopped using google maps on my smart phone). Great car, absolutely no regrets buying it. Even though the initial quality is very good I am little worried about long term reliability but the 5years/60000miles full warranty helps.
