Neither blistering, nor disappointing, the F-Pace is brisk but not fast

  • An involving drive, and not just for an SUV
  • Most powerful engine is slightly lacklustre

The range topping 375bhp, 3-litre, supercharged V6 will reach 62mph in just 5.1sec, which for an 1861kg SUV is impressive. However, it's is only fractionally quicker – 0.1sec to be exact – than Porsche's Macan GTS and the Jaguar’s top speed is limited to 155mph.

The V6 diesel features twin-turbochargers with the 3-litre unit producing 296bhp and a mighty 516lb ft of torque. It isn’t as quick as the petrol against the clock, reaching 62mph in 6.2sec and going on to a 150mph top speed, but that mid-range turbocharged torque makes it feel the quickest of the range in day-to-day driving.

The F-Pace is also available with a 178bhp four-cylinder, 2-litre, turbo-diesel and will reach 62mph in 8.9sec and top 130mph if ordered with a six-speed manual gearbox and rear wheel drive. Go for the optional four-wheel drive drivetrain with the excellent eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox and you'll cut two-tenths from the 0-62mph time, but lose 1mph at the top end.

The V6 engined models are only available with all-wheel drive and the eight-speed automatic gearbox.
