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.
Best looking suv one on the market. No comparison. Bought S trim with supercharged V6 and 380hp and is super sporty. Same engine as the Jaguar F type. A little pricey but comes with a lot of standard features. Handles great. It really hugs the road. Pick up is great and very responsive. Very smooth 8-speed transmission. Interior very nice and intuitive. If you don?t want a typical suburb suv that looks the same as most others and want your time on the road not to be boring then consider this car or get the R Sport trim with the V6 340 hp engine. Has most of the options, but not the exceptional feature of configurable adaptive dynamics and adaptive surface response systems for the engine. There are many good cars in competition out there: Q5, Macan, X5, XC 90, GLE 300, etc. Tried them all. None drove as exciting as the F Pace.
I was a Mercedes Benz customer and have tried most luxury SUVs cars, but once we drove the F-Pace for the first time we knew this is the one. It is like driving a sports car in a Sedan platform, very responsive, suspension feels great and stability is surprisingly good. I have admit that cockpit is not my favorite, as the Velar it the best right now, but driving it is more fun than the Velar guaranteed
First SUV that wasn't a Toyota and loving it. Drove interstate speeds for a long distance and averaged 30mpg in eco mode. At in town speeds, I sometimes opt for the paddle shifters as the car does hunt for the proper gear on inclines. The turbo inline 2.0 4 cylinder has not disappointed us in performance and the handling is definitely Jaguar sedan type. Acceleration is VERY responsive. The seats hold you firmly on sharp turns and the vehicle holds the road like a sports sedan. All the cargo room you'd ever want and, while we probably differ from other SUV owners, we like to feel the road and there is just enough with the F-Pace with the 19" wheels to realize you are on a road and not sitting in your living room on cushy couch. For us, the amenities and electronics are not distracting and very functional. We did purchase a set of Worth floor mats to protect the carpeting as we intend on keeping the vehicle for quite awhile and they are well worth the $200. Jury is still out on cost of ownership but the factory warranty, while not great, is very adequate. Have had the vehicle less than 30 days and most categories in the rating scheme are N/A at this time.
First off, I can't tell you how much I want to like this SUV. Best looking SUV on the road hands down. Plus it's sporty, fun to drive, and just plain cool. But, I simply can't deal with that ride. Smooth until you hit a pothole or uneven pavement, then the impact is harsh enough to knock the fillings out of your teeth. Yes, it's that abrupt and harsh. Very noticeable. I understand it's a "sport SUV", but for every day driving in a city full of nothing but horrible road issues (in this case, Houston), it's just too burdensome. I think Jaguar should offer an Fpace model tuned for a softer ride.
