Jaguar has confirmed the introduction of its all-new F-Pace model to the range in 2016.
The performance crossover is to be manufacturer in Solihull and couples interior space and on-road dynamics with five-seat usability.
Director of design at Jaguar, Ian Callum, said: “We received such an overwhelmingly positive response to the C-X17 concept car last year that we just had to make it a reality.
“The Jaguar F-Pace, inspired by the F-Type, represents a perfectly judged balance of performance, style and practicality. It offers a unique combination of Jaguar sports car inspired exterior design, fused beautifully with a thoroughly practical and spacious luxury interior. The F-Pace is our family sports car.”
Jaguar Land Rover global sales director Andy Goss said: “In 2015 we will celebrate Jaguar’s 80th year. We have started it by announcing our first performance crossover which we consider to be the ultimate practical sports car - a car that builds on the marque’s founding ideals of grace, pace and space to become one of the most innovative Jaguars we’ve ever developed. The F-Pace has now begun its engineering and development testing programme ahead of the new model going on sale in 2016.”
