Jaguar’s F-PACE SUV in Malaysia

Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia has launched the all-new Jaguar F-Pace performance SUV. Dubbed ‘the world’s ultimate practical sports car’, the 335bhp 3.0-litre supercharged V6 is paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The F-Pace accelerates from 0-100km/h in 5.8 seconds and has an electronically capped top speed of 250km/h. The F-Pace is offered in two trim levels, Prestige and R-Sport,

The wheelbase and track are not shared with any other Jaguar. At 4,731mm long and with a 2,874mm wheelbase, the All-New F-Pace has the sleek profile and short front overhang characteristic of Jaguars together with an exceptionally spacious interior with seating for five adult occupants in comfort with generous head and knee room and luggage compartment volume of 508 litres.

The All-New F-Pace’s torque on-demand all-wheel drive (AWD) system is the most sophisticated available from Jaguar and has the highest torque capacity. It features the advanced, in-house control system first developed for F-Type AWD: Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD). IDD preserves rear-wheel drive agility and handling character but can transfer torque to the front wheels for extra traction when needed.

The Adaptive Surface Response (ASR) in R-Sport, developed from sister brand Land Rover’s patented, award-winning Terrain Response technology, makes the AWD system even more effective in challenging conditions. Integrated into Jaguar Drive Control, ASR identifies the type of surface and optimises the mapping of the powertrain and Dynamic Stability Control system. First launched in the All-New XF, ASR has been enhanced by a third mode designed for deep snow and gravel. Additional technologies available to ensure all surface performance include the existing Jaguar systems: All Surface Progress Control and Low Friction Launch which are both standard features.

For infotainment and connectivity, the F-Pace comes with Jaguar’s InControl Touch infotainment system. In the Prestige there is an eight-inch capacity touchscreen, intuitive user interface and crisp clear graphics, it supports smartphone and tablet gestures such as “swipe” to move from one page to another.

The premium InControl Touch Pro system, in the R-Sport variant, is based around a 10.2-inch touchscreen, with a powerful quad-core processor and solid-state drive, and runs on ultra-fast Ethernet. The user interface is claimed to be instinctive and extremely quick with sharp and responsive graphics. Navigation can be shown full-screen-in 3D- in the 12.3-inch HD virtual instrument cluster that comes in the InControl Touch Pro package.

Making its world debut in the F-Pace is Jaguar’s Activity Key. A waterproof, shockproof wristband with an integrated transponder, this segment-first, wearable technology supports active lifestyles because it allows the keyfob to be securely locked inside the vehicle – invaluable if you’re going surfing, for example, or kayaking. Locking the All-New F-PACE using the Activity Key will disable any keyfobs left in the car. The Activity Key is an optional accessory.

The fully-imported All-New F-Pace 3.0-litre Supercharged Prestige is priced at RM598,800 while the higher-spec R-Sport retails at RM658, 800. Prices quoted are inclusive of 6% GST but exclude road tax, registration and insurance. There is also the exclusive Black Pack R-Sport option with gloss black radiator grille and surrounds, body colour door claddings with gloss black finishers and gloss black side power vents with R-Sport badge.

Every All-New F-Pace comes with Jaguar Care, which comprises a five-year warranty, five years free servicing plus three years Jaguar Roadside Assistance.
