Jaguar Philippines updates their local lineup by introducing the latest iterations of two iconic vehicles. The F-Pace and XF both get enhanced exterior aesthetics, an all-new interior, and technological improvements to elevate their luxurious drive.
The F-Pace with Mild-Hybrid
The new Jaguar F-Pace retains its overall shape but changes on its aesthetics make it more classy than the previous version. For starters, the hood has a new power bulge at the center. Its grille now has diamond details accompanying the logo that makes it more classy. The DRLs have a new Double J shape inside the headlight housing, and the air vent accent is moved from the borders and into the housing itself, dividing it into two. The taillights were also given a new treatment with the ‘slimline’ lights that were first seen in the I-PACE.
An all-new interior will greet you inside the new F-Pace. It’s more driver-centric with more tech and luxury. Wood veneers, aluminum, and leather adorn the cabin. At the center of the dash is an 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen Pivi Pro infotainment system. It has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, wireless charging, and works great with the new 3D Surround Camera.
Jaguar also worked on sound isolation inside the F-Pace and they’ve turned to Active Road Noise Cancellation for this. It’s the same technology used by Bose, Apple, and Sony where they use mics to determine the frequency of the noise, and play a similar note to that in order to cancel it out. The result is for repetitive outside noise, especially in traffic, there will be significantly less of it reaching inside the cabin.
Powering the new F-Pace is a 2.0-liter turbo diesel Ingenium engine with 48V Mild Hybrid technology. It produces 196 hp and 430 Nm of torque, paired to an eight-speed automatic sent to all four wheels. The Mild Hybrid technology also uses a Belt Integrated Starter Generator for regenerative braking.
Elevated XF-erience The new Jaguar XF gets most of the design cues applied on the F-Pace. It has the same new grille with diamond-shaped design, the ‘Double J’ DRLs, and a new flat-silver border around the air vents on the front bumper
Inside, the XF looks identical to its bigger brother. It gets similar design, color, and amenities like the 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen, cabin accents, wireless charging, 3D Surround Camera, and Active Road Noise Cancellation.
What sets the XF apart is under the hood. It runs solely on a 2.0-liter turbo Ingenium engine that puts out 247hp and 365 Nm of torque. This is sent to the rear wheels via 8-speed automatic.
