Jaguar F-Pace review - MPG, CO2 and running costs

The diesel models return decent fuel economy, but the real efficiency champion is the P400e plug-in hybrid

One area where Jaguar needed to improve the F-Pace concerned running costs and its poor fuel economy compared to rivals. All cars, with the exception of the entry P250 petrol, now feature mild-hybrid technology, while the P400e model brings a plug-in hybrid set-up to the range.

The four-cylinder D165 and D200 diesel versions both offer a decent 42-45mpg on the combined cycle, with identical CO2 emissions of 163-176g/km. You'll pay the price if you opt for the six-cylinder D300 - not only does it cost around £7-10k more than its lower-powered siblings, it manages just 36-38mpg and produces a not very green 194-206g/km of CO2.

If you prefer petrol power, the 2.0-litre four-cylinder P250 returns a maximum 30.4mpg and the six-cylinder P400 28.8mpg. Both emit well over 200g/km of CO2.

Choose the P400e plug-in hybrid and Jaguar claims you'll see 112-130mpg - provided you keep the battery fully topped up. CO2 emissions of 49-57g/km make the P400e the obvious choice for company car drivers.

The 5.0-litre V8 petrol SVR sits at the very top of the range, and  has an on-paper best of 23.1mpg and emissions of 275g/km. 

Insurance groups

In terms of insurance, the F-Pace is competitive when compared to its main rivals. The entry-level car sits in group 28 out of 50, while BMW's X3 in base SE trim is in group 33 and the Volvo XC60 2.0 D4 Momentum is in group 32. The F-Pace plug-in hybrid starts from group 43.

Depreciation

As well as boasting reasonable day-to-day running costs, the F-Pace looks like a solid long-term prospect, too. Over a typical three-year/36,000-mile ownership period, our data suggests the F-Pace should retain between 50-56% of its original list price, with the D165 version in S trim being a particularly strong performer.
