Jaguar has released the first uncensored image of the all-new F-Pace crossover ahead of its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 14.
The photo will not surprise anyone, as the production car closely resembles the C-X17 Concept unveiled two years ago. Jaguar previously said that the F-Pace is a performance crossover, designed for people who love driving, and the vehicle’s dynamic profile certainly gives this impression – it even has red-painted brake calipers.
Going on sale worldwide from 2016, the Jaguar F-Pace features a double wishbone front suspension and Integral Link rear suspension, as well as F-Type derived technologies including Torque Vectoring. Jaguar says these will give the F-Pace “exceptional ride and handling” characteristics.
Built on a light aluminum architecture, the F-Pace is said to offer an ideal mix between sharp handling and ride comfort. According to the automaker, the body’s high stiffness combined with the sophisticated double wishbone front suspension and Integral Link rear suspension make the F-Pace “incredibly responsive” as well as comfortable.
The crossover also is equipped with an electric power-assisted steering system said to give the driver an immediate response and even greater feedback than in the case of the F-Type! With the torque vectoring technology and the torque on-demand all-wheel drive system, the F-Pace should be an interesting crossover to drive.
More details will be released on September 14, when the car will be fully revealed in Frankfurt.
