2017 Jaguar F-PACE 35t Prestige Review: A crossover with claws

Jaguar knows how to make a handsome car, and the 2017 F-PACE is no different. The British automaker’s crossover borrows liberally from the design language of the slinky F-TYPE coupe and the imposing XJ sedan, no bad thing in either case, and the result is a striking and aggressive SUV. Still, the styling isn’t the only thing Jaguar poached from the F-TYPE: there’s the engine, too.

You could describe the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 as the F-PACE’s secret weapon in the crossover wars. It may “only” be the 340 horsepower version – the F-PACE S gets the 380 HP upgrade – but, in a class when many rivals make do with a turbocharged four-cylinder, there’s a lot to like about Jaguar’s personality-filled engine. You can’t argue with a healthy 332 lb-ft. of torque, either.

It’s all built atop the same platform as Jaguar used for the XE and XF, though the F-PACE is obviously bigger. At 186.3 inches in length, 76.2 inches wide, and 65.6-inches tall, it effectively sits across two size categories: larger than the Porsche Macan but smaller than the Cayenne. Luckily, it’s priced in line with the smaller crossover competition.
