Editor’s note: You may also want to read Autotrader’s 2017 Jaguar F-PACE review.
The 2017 Jaguar F-PACE is a sporty luxury SUV that finally marks Jag’s entrance into the increasingly popular world of the high-end crossover. This, our editor Dwight says, "brings in a new generation of buyers who never considered Jaguar as an option." It offers modern technology, handsome styling and two alluring engine choices: a 2.0-liter turbodiesel that returns an amazing 26 miles per gallon in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, or a sporty 3.0-liter V6 that sends the F-PACE from zero to 60 in around 5.4 seconds (there is also an "S" trim level that does zero to 60 in around 5.1 seconds). Brian, our executive editor, notes that the crossover’s "engine, handling and braking are all perfectly balanced to deliver fun and comfort." It’s not all about performance, though. Our managing editor Tara notes that it’s "super stylish, fast, fun and — believe it or not — practical," further remarking, "If you want utility and luxury but don’t need a third row, this should 100 percent be on your shopping list." Which is exactly why the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE made it on our list of the Must Test Drive vehicles for 2017.
