Indera Motors, the sole distributor for Jaguar Land Rover in the sultanate presents the luxury performance SUV, the Jaguar F-Pace in R-Sport trim.

The Jaguar F-Pace presents itself as the embodiment of what the legendary Jaguar brand stands for in terms of performance, practicality and luxury, elevating further the image of what an SUV should be.

The F-Pace takes its design cues from its sibling, the Jaguar F-Type. Styling feels futuristic and understated, staying true to Jaguar’s premium luxury aesthetic that we love.

At first sight, the F-Pace is instantly recognisable from its adaptive LED headlights and its signature Jaguar grille at the front to its distinctive taillight that draws inspiration from the Jaguar F-Type. The F-Pace is a class on its own.

In addition to that, Jaguar offers the F-Pace with sporty additions in the R-Sport trim. The R-Sport body kit brings in an athletic, predatory stance to go along with the SUV’s day-to-day practicality.

Inside the Jaguar F-Pace

The exterior of the Jaguar F-Pace wins on the first impression, but its premium interior is equally as stunning.

As you should expect from the British multinational automaker, the Jaguar F-Pace comes with premium-feel materials throughout the cabin.

The luxury interior features a combination of elegance and sportiness and is ergonomically sound.

Moreover, the use of sports seat packaging not only provides the driver with exceptional support and long-distance driving comfort but also provides ample space for passengers sitting behind.

Aside from easy-to-spot high-quality materials, the F-Pace displays an elegant dashboard dominated by an intuitive 10.2-inch Touch Pro infotainment system touchscreen display compatible with Android phones..

There’s also a contemporary feel to the interior, thanks to a glossy centre console with touch-sensitive buttons.

To further ante up the interior, customers could opt for the ambient lighting that is only available with special/customised order. The ambient lighting lets you choose from ten different colours, creating an ambience to match their every mood.

When it comes to safety features, Jaguar has long been a strong contender in automotive safety.

The F-Pace offers the latest and improved driving assistance system featuring lane-keeping assist, high-speed emergency braking, blind-spot assist, among others.

On the road with the F-pace

But as appealing and comfortable as the interior design may be, the F-Pace main highlight is really in its agile handling and performance.

Underpinning the F-Pace is an evolution of F-Type’s chassis and suspension, offering a unique balance between agility and ride comfort

On the road from Beribi, Gadong to the RIPAS bridge the Jaguar F-Pace demonstrated immense poise in four different driving modes – Comfort, Eco, Dynamic and Rain/Ice/Snow.

Comfort was our mode of choice for driving around the city as it lightened the steering wheel’s resistance and softened the suspension, giving the drive extra cushion during rush hour.

The F-Pace is powered by 2.0-turbocharged, 250 horsepower with 0-100km/h acceleration in 6.8 seconds. There was ample torque at the ready, and acceleration was smooth and constant

The SUV delivers outstanding usable power and torque, for excellent acceleration and effortless overtaking, maximum torque is available between 1,200-4,500 rpm.

The Jaguar F-Pace remains confident and full of grip, at higher speeds and no matter how aggressive you drive, the SUV offers a really smooth and quiet ride.

Further into our drive, the 5-seater has a great cornering grip and balance, encouraging us to do more rolls along the RIPAS bridge. The steering is precise and gives the kind of feedback you want from a premium SUV.

Overall, a comfortable ride, all around, even driving on the back roads of Kampung Selayun where the roads were more curved and rocky.

Other than its powerful performance, the F-Pace just feels good to drive, its handling and agility is a true match for its luxury performance.
