Though very expensive at the top end, the 2020 Jaguar F-Pace is well-equipped in base trim, has a long list of options, and a great warranty, not to mention good infotainment. It’s not much of a value, though. We give it 8 out of 10 here.
Other competitors undercut the 2020 F-Pace significantly in terms of price, but $46,225 including destination charge yields a well-equipped luxury SUV. Base models get all-wheel drive, 18-inch wheels, a sliding panoramic sunroof, a power liftgate, 10-way power front seats, a sueded headliner, a Meridian sound system, a 10.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and active safety features like automatic emergency braking.
Premium models start at $48,825 and get 19-inch wheels, 4-way power lumbar adjustment for the front seats, and ambient interior lighting, while the $53,225 Prestige edition includes xenon headlights, upgraded leather seats with heat up front, a heated steering wheel, keyless ignition, an in-vehicle wi-fi hotspot, navigation, and traffic sign recognition. Either of these would earn our recommendation.
R-Sport models start at $57,525 and include unique exterior design features, 20-inch alloy wheels, adaptive LED headlights with high-beam assist, and 18-way front seats.
Finally, the Portfolio trim throws most options in the book at the F-Pace for $64,625, including the foot-operated power tailgate, fine leather with 20-way power adjustment up front, electrically-reclining rear seats, heating and cooling up front with heated rear seats, four-zone climate control, a cooled glove compartment, a head-up display, and improved Meridian sound.
All of the above trims minus the base model come with the choice of either the base 247-horsepower turbo-4 or its higher-output kin.
The F-Pace S model starts at $63,125 and includes a 380-horsepower supercharged V-6 as well as special S badging and a configurable Dynamic mode in the drive selector.
For 2020, two new special editions join the fold in the form of the Checkered Flag and 300 Sport editions. The Checkered Flag edition adds black design features, unique wheels, 16-way front seats with grained leather and contrast stitching, and improved infotainment for $59,425 while the 300 Sport comes with the more powerful turbo-4 engine, unique badging and exterior trim, sport seats with yellow contrast stitching, and improved connectivity for $63,025.
The raucous SVR model and its 550-horsepower supercharged V-8 starts at $81,625 and includes 21-inch wheels, unique seats and interior trim, heated and cooled front seats with heated rear seats, quad tailpipes, bigger front and rear brakes, an active exhaust system, an active electronic differential with torque vectoring by braking, and a head-up display.
Every Jaguar comes with a 5-year/60,000-mile comprehensive warranty that also includes free maintenance.
