Jaguar C-X17 concept debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show two years ago…
…and now the 2016 Jaguar F-Pace SUV will make its global debut during the 2015 edition of the show.
From Autocar, they reported that the SUV is undergoing testing at the moment, and they have caught a camouflaged prototype with physical cues suggesting a supercharged 3-liter V6 under the hood.
Other possible engines for this showroom-ready model feature a 5-liter supercharged V8 motor, and the Ingenium family of gasoline – and diesel-fueled four-cylinder mills.
The release also mentioned that the F-Pace’s dimensions look like that of the C-X17 concept…
…which is 16 inches longer than the Range Rover Evoque in an overall length of 186 inches, and is 65 inches tall.
Also, there are other features included like “an assured driving position” at “a low height” similar to the aforementioned Evoque, a plunging rear roof line, and an interior completely unlike anything currently offered by Jaguar Land Rover.
The F-Pace will face off against the rivals likes BMW X4 and the Porsche Macan in the small SUV game when it hits showrooms in 2016, and is expected to help push total sales volume for Jaguar alongside the XE sedan from 80,000 units/year to 200,000, faring well in SUV-friendly markets like the China and United States.
