The 2021 new facelift of the famous Jaguar F-PACE is connected and electrified.
The new F-PACE is available with the P400e PHEV powertrain as well as the latest four-cylinder and new in-line six-cylinder diesel Ingenium engines. All F-PACE models feature intelligent all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmissions.
When fully charged, the new P400e is capable of up to 53km of all-electric driving, enabling the new F-PACE PHEV to complete the average daily commute to and from work in EV mode without requiring a recharge.
“The new F-PACE is dynamic and assertive with an elegant stance on the road – it represents a significant development of Jaguar design language,” Julian Thomson, Jaguar Design Director, said.
“The heightened luxury and attention to detail inside the F-PACE with seamlessly integrated state-of-the-art technologies ensure both driver and passengers feel a real sense of occasion whenever they get in the vehicle.”
The new Jaguar F-PACE’s infotainment undergoes a big-time redesign.
The car now has an advanced Electronic Vehicle Architecture, dubbed EVA 2.0, which supports a range of new technologies to ensure the future-ready vehicle is always connected and always up to date.
The latest Pivi Pro infotainment technology is accessed through the all-new 11.4-inch curved glass HD touchscreen.
Key benefits include enhanced clarity, the screen is three times brighter and 48% larger than the previous 10-inch screen, and simplified menu structures that allow drivers to access or view up to 90 per cent of common tasks from the home screen in two taps or less.
To help drivers access vital information quickly, the new F-PACE also features a new 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display with enhanced graphics and a configurable layout which can show full-screen navigation mapping with turn-by-turn instructions, digital dials, media, contact lists and infotainment details.
Working in conjunction with the latest Head-up Display technology, the new F-PACE gives drivers all the information they need without distraction.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard and allow customers to connect two phones simultaneously via Bluetooth. Wireless devices charging with phone signal booster allows occupants to quickly charge their smartphones. The system also provides clearer calls through the help of an external aerial.
To enable instantaneous start-up, Pivi Pro has a dedicated power source, so is ready to use as soon as customers get behind the wheel.
The collection of new convenience technologies includes Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) capability, which ensures the performance SUV is always using the latest software. The technology means that owners do not have to visit retailers to receive software updates for the vehicle.
Pivi Pro connectivity is provided by the latest embedded dual-sim technology with two LTE modems enabling the system to carry out multiple functions at the same time, such as streaming media and downloading SOTA updates, without compromising performance.
The cutting-edge connectivity also ensures minimal interruptions caused by coverage blackspots as it roams across network providers for the strongest signal.
Segment-first Active Road Noise Cancellation technology constantly monitors vibrations from the road surface and calculates the opposite phase sound wave needed to remove the noise heard by the occupants. This means quieter noise levels within the cabin for superior refinement and reduced fatigue, commonly associated with prolonged exposure to low-frequency noise. Cabin occupancy is monitored, with the system continuously optimising performance to deliver the best possible experience for everyone.
The lightweight technology ensures that vehicle weight and handling characteristics remain unaffected. Engine Noise Cancellation isolates the cabin from unwanted engine noise to further enhance the sense of tranquillity.
For enhanced convenience, the second-generation wearable Activity Key can be used to lock, unlock and start the vehicle without the need for the conventional key fob to be present in the vehicle. The rechargeable device incorporates a watch and has a battery life of seven days between charges.
The new F-PACE also benefits from the latest generation of driver assistance technology. This includes Clear Exit Monitor, which alerts both front and rear occupants to the presence of an approaching car or cyclist when exiting the vehicle. Adaptive Cruise Control automatically maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front.
Jaguar’s latest 3D Surround Camera technology delivers advanced 3D functionality using the latest camera technology to deliver more detail and a choice of real-time viewing when manoeuvring the vehicle. The selection of settings includes Junction View, 3D Perspective View, and ClearSight Plan View.
Jaguar’s commitment to creating strong and lightweight vehicles, continues with the new
F-PACE. The aluminium-intensive architecture uses recycled aluminium from closed-loop manufacturing for greater sustainability and is an important contribution towards Jaguar’s journey to Destination Zero, a world of zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion.
Customers can choose from S, SE R-DYNAMIC and HSE R-DYNAMIC trim levels. Also optional on all models is the Black Exterior Pack.
The new Jaguar F-PACE is scheduled for a South African launch early 2021 and pricing will be announced closer to the time.
