2017 Jaguar F-Pace – Inner and External Cosmetic Changes:
The exterior of the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is sleek and aerodynamic. Its shape helps increase downforce and decrease friction and wind noise while reducing power consumption. It also comes with optional LED headlamps which provide more light for night time drives to assist your needs. As the company prefers to call it a practical sports car and a performance crossover, it does have a sports car look.
The interior has a big range of premium materials and finishes, in different colors that you can choose from. And of course, what makes a car look sportier than leather seats? The Jaguar F-Pace has it all. The rear seats can easily and comfortably accommodate three adults at a time. The front too has electronically operated reclining seats. No manual pushing, pulling or levers are required. It is all a push of a button away. A more spacious effect is brought through the panoramic moonroof which provides ample sunlight to make the ride feel more alive and just the right amount of tint to keep the glare out.
Like all other models of the series, the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace makes driving all about the driver. It comes with an eight-inch touch screen for all sorts of interactive functions. It provides navigation guidance, integrated text-to-voice, and climate control. Furthermore, it has Bluetooth phone connectivity and various Jaguar InControl Apps designed just for the driver. As if that weren’t good enough already, the Jaguar F-Pace now had the option of an InControl touch pro that features a 10.2-inch touch screen and refined and enhanced apps and navigation system.
The navigation assistance is further upped by an advanced Head-Up Display (HUD) system based on laser technology. This optional ultra modern system displays a selected part of the important information on the windshield. Without blurring your line of vision at all, it displays speed, navigation instructions, notifications, some traffic sign recognition data, etc. wherever needed. State of the art technology use does not simply end here. The Jaguar F-Pace brings with it, a complete waterproof wristband which eliminated all need for a pocket or bag to carry around. You can simply bring the band or “activity key” as it is called, to a sensor concealed behind the Jaguar badge on the tailgate to lock or unlock the car.
You don’t need to get your hands full for opening, closing or keeping the tailgate raised. The rear flanks have detectors to make life easier for you. A simple presence of your foot under it does the trick.
The sound system too is incomparable with its eleven speakers covering the entire acoustic range. The Meridian™ 380W Sound System installed and an optional Meridian™ 825W Surround Sound System provide performance like none other. Its parking assistance comes with autonomous emergency braking with the help of forward facing cameras, and an optional Park Assist helps with both parallel and perpendicular parking. The best thing about the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace is that you can design your custom car according to your color choice. Your car, your desire!
