Jaguar F-Pace 300 Sport and Chequered Flag editions revealed
The Jaguar F-Pace is now available in two special edition variants, with a focus on performance and technology
Jaguar has announced two special-edition versions of its F-Pace SUV, called the 300 Sport and the Chequered Flag, priced from £52,980 and £46,995 respectively. The former adds a range of performance-inspired interior and exterior upgrades, while the latter provides a host of additional standard equipment.
F-Pace 300 Sport buyers are given the choice of two engines: a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol and 3.0-litre V6 diesel , which both develop 296bhp. The petrol has 400Nm of torque and a claimed 0–62mph time of 6.1 seconds, while the diesel musters 700Nm of torque and can cover 0–62mph in 6.4 seconds, the brand says.
Exterior styling tweaks for the 300 Sport include 22-inch alloy wheels, satin grey trim, satin grey mirror caps, 300 Sport badges for the front grille and rear tailgate, plus a choice of three exclusive paint colours.
Interior updates include leather upholstery with yellow contrasting stitching, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a 10-inch infotainment system, 14-way electrically adjustable front seats, a Meridian premium sound system and 300 Sport badging for the treadplates, steering wheel, floor mats and headrests.
For buyers with deeper pockets, Jaguar also offers a range of optional extras, such as 18-way electrically adjustable seats, heated rear seats, a panoramic roof, adaptive cruise control, four-zone climate control and a head-up display.
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.
