If the styling of the 2023 Jaguar F-Pace reminds you of F type sports car, it’s no mistake, nor is the SUV’s sporty on-road manners. Jaguar’s two-row mid-size car is not only practical, spacious and upscale, but it will also appeal to driving enthusiasts. Standard turbo four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 246 hp. is good, but an available 3.0-liter turbocharged and supercharged six-cylinder engine with 395 hp. The 550-horsepower F-Pace SVR has the highest performance, but we consider it separately. The handling trade-off of the regular F-Pace is a firm ride that may not be for everyone. The cabin is suitably plush, with quality materials and modern technology cleverly integrated into the design. The large touchscreen infotainment system sits above the dash and is up and running Jaguar latest software. Unfortunately, this is a work in progress and suffers from some errors. ​​​​​​​While such small issues make it a tough sell compared to more refined competitors, the desire to drive the 2023 F-Pace is charming enough to outweigh these shortcomings.

What’s new in 2023?

Jaguar dropped the 335-horsepower P340 model from the F-Pace lineup, but the 395-horsepower version of the P400 continues to serve as the most powerful model. Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality is now available on the P250 S and P400 R-Dynamic S. Every F-Pace is now equipped with self-sealing tires to reduce the chance of a puncture.

Pricing and which one to buy

We think the P250 S with the 246-hp turbo-four. provides the best balance of performance and cost. Stepping up from the base P250 to the P250 S adds unique 19-inch wheels, a power liftgate, and beautiful diamond-stitched leather upholstery. It also adds the more desirable PiviPro infotainment software with navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot and traffic sign recognition.

Engine, transmission and performance

Every 2023 F-Pace is equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 246 hp. For those looking for a more refined turbo-four than the Jag, BMW X3 gets top marks. The F-Pace P400 R-Dymanic S has a 3.0-liter inline-six that generates 395 horsepower with a turbocharger, an electric supercharger and a 48-volt hybrid system. During our first impressions of the the six-cylinder F-Pace, we noted good response and lively acceleration, but the transmission was hesitant to downshift during cornering maneuvers in all but the Sportiest drive modes. The The P400 we tested hit 60 mph in 5.5 secondsbut it is noticeable The 1.4 falls short of the 382-horsepower X3 M40i. Meanwhile, Jaguar deliberately tunes the F-Pace’s suspension on the firm side for a sportier feel. The ride is never harsh, but the larger wheels (Jaguar offers up to 22 inches) add a little sway to the suspension over bumps. Regardless of model, every F-Pace’s steering is quick, providing confident feedback from the front tires to the driver’s hands. The sharp responses of the F-Pace under assertive driving are truly impressive and a pleasure to drive.

Fuel economy and real mpg

The EPA rates the 2023 F-Pace with the available six-cylinder engine at 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine is rated at 22 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway. While we didn’t test the six-cylinder version on our fuel-efficient 75 mph highway route, which part of our comprehensive testing regime, the turbo-four F-Pace nearly repeated its state rating of 26 mpg.

Interior, comfort and cargo

In keeping with Jaguar’s minimalist interior aesthetic, the F-Pace’s cabin features simple details, easy access to additional controls and plenty of windows to improve visibility. You sit high in the front and back seats, and the driver gets a great seating position, square to the steering wheel and pedals. The dimensions of legroom and headroom in the F-Pace’s front seats are among the most spacious in the class, while the rear is just average. The large climate control buttons are easy to use, and the central touchscreen display is within easy reach of any front seat passenger. Aside from the relative lack of front-seat passenger space, the F-Pace’s cargo-carrying capabilities are a lot bigger than its sexy styling might suggest. Release the handles in the trunk, and from the top of each rear seatback, lower the 40/20/40 split rear seats to a nearly flat position. In this way, space was created for 22 hand luggage.

Infotainment system and communication

Jaguar’s latest touchscreen infotainment system is called Pivi. It boils down key features to simple, well-organized menus and looks sleek. Unfortunately, we found it to be too buggy and prone to crashes. Fortunately, unlike Jaguar’s previous infotainment software, Pivi is capable of over-the-air updates, so the F-Pace can easily be updated as problems are fixed. Each model comes standard with an 11.4-inch curved-glass touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 14-speaker Meridian stereo system; built-in navigation and a Wi-Fi hotspot are also available.

Safety features and driver assistance

Buyers who want the latest in safety and driver assistance systems still have a satisfying choice, including a generous array of standard driver assistance technology and several high-tech options. For more information on the F-Pace crash test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute of Road Safety (IIHS) websites. Key security features include:

  • Standard forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking
  • Standard Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist
  • Standard adaptive cruise control

Warranty and maintenance

In its bid to change the public perception of the brand’s historically skewed reliability, Jaguar provides segment-leading warranty coverage. A highlight is Jaguar’s long-term free scheduled maintenance program.

  • The limited warranty covers five years or 60,000 miles
  • The transmission is warranted for five years or 60,000 miles
  • Free scheduled maintenance is covered for five years or 60,000 miles
