According to the Coscharis Jaguar Land Rover Marketing Manager, Aregbeshola Cletus, as Coscharis Motors prepares to unveil the F-PACE to customers and motoring press, a follow up test drive plan has been scheduled for the last week of July, especially for customers who would have indicated interest during the launch.
The foundation of the new Jaguar Lifestyle Pillar, F-PACE is the
third vehicle built from Jaguar’s Advanced Lightweight Aluminium Architecture and Jaguar’s Performance SUV – a breakthrough, transformational product for the brand. Combining an optimum blend of Performance, Seduction and Practicality, F-PACE will be the Ultimate Practical Sports Car, competing directly against the Porsche Macan and BMW X4.
“The All-New F-PACE is a Jaguar that customers around the world demanded that we make. The targets we set are among the most challenging we’ve ever had to deliver but I’m proud to say that the All-New F-PACE meets or exceeds every one of them,” says Kevin Stride, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar F-PACE.
“This is a performance SUV with outstanding dynamics yet also delivers a smooth, quiet ride. The F-TYPE-inspired design combines dramatic looks with a spacious interior and an exceptionally large luggage compartment. Together with our All-New infotainment system, our most advanced all-wheel drive system and an outstanding range of active safety technologies, the All-New F-PACE makes every journey a better, more rewarding experience.”

94% of customers are expected to come from other brands. The F Pace is built to strongly appeal to customers in key emerging markets.
