Jaguar F-Pace Adds New Interior, Upgraded Infotainment, Tech

Trip to the groomer for the Jaguar F-Pace, gets facelift, interior upgrades, wider seats

  • Jaguar F-Pace gets refreshed styling inside and out

  • Quicker infotainment with more upscale trim and finishes


The Jaguar F-Pace crossover is getting a new F-ace, with a mid-cycle upgrade adding extensive interior tweaks including a larger touchscreen and new infotainment system, plus some subtle exterior changes, higher-quality finishes, and a real gear shift instead of the rotary dial.

The exterior changes aren’t big on the new Jaguar F-Pace, but they didn’t need to be. A handsome crossover has been given a wider power bulge on the hood, with smoother surfacing and drops some cutlines from the front of the car. The larger grille wears diamond detailing and there are slim LED headlights. At the back are similarly thin LED lights using the chicane pattern first seen on the I-Pace.

It’s inside that counts, and the Jaguar F-Pace has seen some significant improvements here. First, a new cockpit which pits a greater focus on the driver. The infotainment screen is now 11.4-inches and curved glass in a magnesium casing. Behind the glass is the new Pivi Pro software from JLR. Open-pore wood finishes and aluminum offerings for the door, dash, and other trim add suitably Jag upscale detailing. A 12.3-inch digital dash screen provides new graphics and a configurable layout for drivers and can show full-screen navigation.

Gone is the rotary pop-up drive selector, here to replace it is a stubby conventional shifter with “cricket-ball” stitching. The door cards have larger storage spaces and more convenient switches, and Jag has added new massage functions, expanded the heated and cooled areas of the seat, and added wider cushions. New active noise cancellation helps keep the Jags quiet on the inside.

While a load of diesel options will be offered, we don’t expect them here so we’ll focus on the two gas engines Jag’s confirmed for Canada. A pair of 3.0L inline-six engines with mild-hybrid tech, turbocharging and electric supercharging. The base engine makes 335 and the uprated model 395, hitting 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds. Both use an eight-speed auto and have all-wheel drive.

Other new features in the refreshed Jaguar F-Pace include the ability to lock and start the vehicle with the Activity key and not needing to leave the real key in the car. A UK-only Guardian Mode lets you put a time-lock on the car, getting phone alerts if the car is used during those times. The 3D surround camera also adds new camera tech with more detail and more perspectives.
