The Jaguar F-Pace Chequered Flag is essentially a better-equipped, better-value version of the R-Sport model. Updates over that car include 20-inch gloss black alloy wheels, gloss black exterior trim, a redesigned front bumper and a choice of three unique paint codes.

Inside, the Chequered Flag brings a smattering of additional equipment, including a panoramic glass roof, 10-way electric seats and meshed aluminium trim. As with the 300 Sport, it also offers leather upholstery, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a 10-inch dash-mounted infotainment screen and a Meridian sound system.

Buyers can choose from three of Jaguar’s 2.0-litre all-wheel-drive powertrains. The range opens with a 176bhp four-cylinder turbo diesel, which claims economy figures of 41.9mpg. Jaguar also offers a 237bhp four-cylinder diesel and a 247bhp four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine; the latter boasting a claimed 0–62mph time of seven seconds and a top speed of 135mph.

For 2019, Jaguar has also updated the rest of the F-Pace range, adding Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard, while improving emissions by up to 8g/km across the board with new low-rolling-resistance tyres and a range of ECU tweaks.
