Comes with 2.0-litre, turbocharged petrol and diesel engines
Gets fresh styling updates inside out and more features
In terms of styling, the F-Pace facelift is now adorned with a more prominent grille, restyled bumpers, sleeker LED headlights and tail-lights, as well as a new hood that now extends all the way to the grille. The rest of the F-Pace’s design is very much unchanged from the outgoing model, meaning it has retained its sporty and well-proportioned looks.
With the facelift, Jaguar is offering the F-Pace in the R-Dynamic S trim, which adds a ‘Shadow Atlas’ finish to the diamond mesh grille, blacked out inserts on the bumper, and black alloy wheels.

Under the hood, the F-Pace is once again available with the choice of petrol and diesel engines. Both, the petrol and diesel engines are 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharges units, with the petrol producing 252hp and 365Nm, and the diesel developing 204hp and 430Nm. Jaguar offers an 8-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel-drive setup as standard across the range.
For some context, the carmaker had discontinued the F-Pace’s 180hp, 2.0-litre diesel engine when transitioning to the BS6 era and made the F-Pace a petrol-only model.
It is also worth mentioning that, abroad, the Jaguar F-Pace is available with a mild-hybrid system, and the company could bring this powertrain to our market at a later date.
