Review Jaguar F-Pace 2019 cars

As the trend of preference for high-rise cars is increasing, even reputable and long-standing car manufacturers must accept change. Among them perhaps Jaguar is the most successful with F-Pace – the first SUV in more than 80 years of its history.

In Vietnam, the largest “member” of the jaguar family was officially launched in early 2017 and continued to show its appeal with “right and right” orders at two premieres in Hanoi. and Ho Chi Minh. Compared to rival Maserati Levante that appeared earlier, it is clear that the five-seater SUV from the United Kingdom received a lot more positive feedback.

Exterior of cars

For the first time in 80 years of its history, Jaguar launched a new car “high ground” (later with the addition of E-Pace). However, the British automaker did not disappoint its fans while cleverly bringing the history lines through the two centuries of sedans or coupes into the F-Pace.

The clearest evidence is that the first Jaguar SUV received the award of the Best Design Car of the Year – 2017 World Car Design of the Year.

Jaguar F-Pace has a two-axis distance of 2,874 (mm) placed in the body of the pedestal with the overall dimensions Length x Width x Height is 4,731 x 1,936 x 1,652 (mm), enough to overwhelm anyone who comes near. but still ensure the ability to travel conveniently in crowded streets. Meanwhile, the car has a minimum ground clearance of up to 213 (mm) – the right “standard” for the SUV to be always maneuverable and ready to overcome all obstacles, from bridge abutments, curbs to potholes waiting directly on the highway.

F-Pace has a large trapezoidal grille with polished chrome border and cleverly rounded corners, which can be considered as the only place that owns sophistication and elegance in the front of the car, leaving the details. Other create a sense of health and dynamism for the opposite person. It was a growling leopard logo on a dark honeycomb paneling, sharp embossed ribs that cut off the capo into five separate sections, a large front bumper with a ragged metal bar. Not only that, Jaguar also thoughtfully arranged hard plastic plate underneath to protect the chassis under bad situations when off-road on rocky roads.

And of course, the F-Pace 2018 Prestige version has another “specialty” of the British car company – “cool eyes” with modern lighting technology, including LEDs, LED daytime running lights and lights. J-shaped turn signals and low beam LED layout below.

If the Jaguar logo is a jaguar in a mighty hunt, then it can be said that F-Pace has made this image excellent from the perspective of the body of the car, sure that this big “cat” will always be the focal point of every street I walk through. Spending more time observing, you will realize that the “muscular mass” rolled along the body of the car makes few competitors in the current high-end five-seat roaring segment can confidently compare with the F- Pace 2018 about the dynamic and strong.

In addition to that leading style, the British car company also brings youthful details but at the same time it is still very luxurious. It is a narrow and long designed glass window frame in a very harmonious vehicle shape, surrounded by shiny chorme contour while columns B and C contrast with glossy black paint. Or simply a splint at the position of the air vents in the body combined with a short embossed rib next to it, this creates a special highlight for F-Pace and helps the overall vehicle look more seamless.

For those who have spent the love and time to follow the Jaguar brand, it will be easy to recognize that the SUV model usually enjoys a charismatic symbol from the F-Type brother – the sharp LED rear light clusters hugging. to the sides of the body. Of course, the design team has “zoomed in” on this specific identifier a little more to fit and be more proportional to the massive size of the 2018 F-Pace.

Besides, it is impossible not to mention the exterior equipment that contributes to embellish the personality and functionality of the F-Pace such as the “paired” shark fin antenna and the sport spoiler tail to increase the aerodynamics. learn at high speed, dark rear bumper with two reflective lights for better identification or dual chrome exhaust pipes arranged low and meticulously crafted, beautifully.

Car interiors

The five seating positions are where Jaguar takes the most care to ensure that each individual who puts himself into F-Pcae will receive the highest level of comfort, the most obvious expression of that is the thick skin. wrapped around the plump seat cushions and smooth, accompanied by a lot of colored lines and the combination of red and black leather seats interwoven very prominent on the R-Sport version.

In the first row, in addition to being equipped with 10-way power adjustment on both sides, the driver’s seat also adds the memory function and “attach” to the memory of the steering column position to maximize the individuality and the Convenient for people behind the wheel. Although there is a lack of “airbag” to support the lumbar spine, the front seat in F-Pace must say that it still supports the seat very well with hips and thighs hugged, large headrest with optional ability flexible adjustment so the shoulders and neck are not too tired, although driving the car continuously for several hours.

The rear seats will generally fit two adults and a young passenger when the middle seat has a raised floor and is stunned by the air vents. Ignore this small limitation, in terms of space and comfort are good with a very airy ceiling or ample legroom even if you are up to 1m80 tall. Most notably, when Jaguar added a button so I could adjust the tilt of the seat back according to my relaxation needs.

Although the tablo has a symmetrical design with broken lines “out there”, it is the central control area that integrates both the touch screen and a series of control buttons that help the driver still feel almost entirely owned by the F-Pace cockpit 2019.

Another thing that I have always liked and appreciated is that Jaguar’s exclusive knob-shaped gear lever area is always very neat, the armrest area between the two front seats is “connected” to the tablo table without a Any redundant details appear. The same scientific layout makes the operation of the entertainment and air conditioning functions always easy, and most importantly, maximizes the concentration of the driver during driving.

Next to the steering wheel is probably the most attractive thing, not only because through which people and cars can “communicate” but also by absorbing sports quality in every detail even the smallest. Right in the middle of the circle is a muscular jaguar galloping, located on both sides is an entertainment control cluster – connecting and installing the automatic throttle system, where the buttons are not only Genuine feedback, but also boldly shaped to operate quickly and accurately without spending time glancing off the road.

The layout is not too new, but with striking contrasting colors, the letters or figures clearly make me excited when tracking the performance parameters of F-Pace. Another element of scoring points is that when changing the driving mode, the display will also change the main tone to “more in tune” with the emotional circuit of the person behind the steering wheel, from leisurely green. with Eco, calm blue with Normal to strong red with Dynamic.

Convenient

Serving the role of keeping information – entertainment running smoothly on every journey is the state-of-the-art InControl Touch Pro system with a sharp 8-inch touch screen and precise feedback at every control operation, Along the sides are eight buttons for quick access to key functions when needed, such as calling, playlists or navigation. Comes with the ability to connect to peripherals via Bluetooth or USB / AUX / HDMI / MHL ports, from which you can listen to music or talk hands-free very easily.

And what “money” than in the F-Pace Prestige version in the article is nothing more than the 11-speaker Meridian audio cluster with a total capacity of up to 380 Watt. This equipment brings a complete experience to every note.

It’s a bit unfortunate that the F-Pace I experience only has an independent two-zone automatic air conditioner that comes with air vents in the second row with a knob to increase or decrease the wind level, instead of having a separate area. custom area for the rear seat like a few other luxury SUV models.

Similar to the Range Rover Evoque’s “distant relative” that the renowned team has once experienced, Jaguar F-Pace chooses a beautiful panoramic panoramic glass roof to “connect” between the soul of the inner passenger and the surrounding landscape. outside, instead of using the sunroof, it can be completely opened as usual.

Supporting the customers’ power demands, Jaguar creates a “large” luggage compartment with a standard capacity of 650 liters, along with the ability to expand when folding the rear seats at a ratio of 40:20 : 40 Very flexible to increase the total capacity to 1,740 liters. And the integrated electric tailgate on the back door or on the key is an indispensable item in F-Pace to make loading and unloading luggage and luggage as easy as possible.

After all, the storage compartments and cupboards that are available in all the necessary locations with proper alignment will be enough to handle the storage of your personal belongings or drinks throughout the journey. F-Pace 2019.

Operation – safety

An interesting detail is that all F-Pace versions in Vietnam are supplied by the importer with a powerful engine and gearbox configuration. Specifically, the engine block is equipped with a turbocharger with a capacity of 2.0 liters for power of 250 or 300 horsepower at 5,500 rpm, maximum torque of 365 or 400Nm from 1,200 – 4,000 rpm. As a result, F-Pace 2019 is capable of accelerating 0-100 km / h in just 6.1 or 7 seconds and is ready to reach a maximum speed of 217 km / h.

And not just equipped with an all-wheel drive system AWD, Jaguar also provides its first SUV with other top-notch performance features to make the most of the internal force under the lid. capo. The most typical are the following two systems:

• All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) technology helps the car identify types of road surfaces that are slippery and have low friction such as snow, wet grass, raining roads or roads with crushed stone. From there, the operator will be alerted and the vehicle will automatically adjust the speed between 3.6km / h and 30km / h to ensure safety when operating.

• Adaptive Surface Response (ASR) technology enables the all-new Jaguar F – Pace to recognize the different types of pavement, thereby adjusting the active traction on two bridges according to three scale levels. 90:10 – 50:50 – 10:90 to prevent slipping, ensure maximum safety and performance.

General assessment

It can be said that the Jaguar F-Pace 2019 has reshaped the standards of a high-powered sports car with a rugged but modern style, a youthful cabin and a high-class luxury, and which I appreciate even more than retaining the high-performance characteristic inside a great “body” that Jaguar has excelled in.


Review of Jaguar XF 2019 cars

In the mid-size luxury sedan segment, most customers often refer to the German trio of luxury cars are Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and Lexus GS, and they often forget one. The name comes from England – Jaguar XF.

This is a second-generation model of the XF with upgrades in both appearance and equipment, not only increasing the appeal to those who “trot” the jaguar mascot, but also helps the Jaguar sedan lineup. more sophisticated with XE and XJ.

The official selling price in Vietnam for the current XF has not been announced exactly, only know that besides the Prestige Si4 version uses a 2.0-hp turbocharged 2.0 engine and the rear-wheel drive system appears in the review. this time.

Exterior

First of all, considering the dimensions, the 2019 Jaguar XF has a total length of Length x Width x Height of 4,954 x 1,987 x 1,457 (mm), a wheelbase of 2,960 (mm) and a minimum ground clearance at full load of 116 (mm). These numbers are enough for XF to overtake the E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and Lexus GS to become the largest vehicle model in the current segment.

Taking a closer look at the look of XF 2019, Jaguar brings a few noticeable changes in the front and rear light assemblies, combined with decorative details to create a strong, youthful but still full overall. elegant and attractive.

The appearance of the XF 2019 is clearly masculine but still shows some majesty and elegance in Jaguar’s very own “nobility”. Accompanied by a honeycomb grille with chrome-plated edges, the front bumper as well as the sharp embossed ribs on the cap, the two air intakes below are expanded more than before and the two additional bright metal bars ball.

The focus cannot be ignored is Jaguar’s modern lighting system for the new generation XF. “Eyes” guide the driver equipped with exclusive Jaguar LED Technology with headlights / headlights and daytime running lights “J Blade” completely made up of LED bulbs.

In addition to the ability to illuminate and identify clearly and beautifully, the features that the British automaker integrates inside also have auto on / off, automatically adjust the projection angle when driving with the wash lamp full of utilities…

From the side, we can see the body lines that have been meticulously elaborated by Jaguar to every detail, from the embossing from the nose of the car that stretches along the body to the tail of the windshield, the hood clawing backwards. as in sports coupes, to the chrome-framed glass door frames and the B-pillar made of high-grade glass, instead of just painted black but rivals.

At the rear of the car, Jaguar XF 2019 has a harmonious overall when the layout towards the balance and the jaguar and the shiny Jaguar lettering as the center. Inside the slender tail light clusters hugging from both sides of the body is a full-size LED array with a design inherited from the bendable F-Type coupe that is very beautiful, connecting these two light strips is a splint. luxury chrome.

In addition, although not too clear, the sporty appearance is still somewhat unsettling when Jaguar puts in an XF with a fish fin antenna, a slightly modified spoiler tail and a pair of dual exhaust pipes surrounded by the part. Dark plastic rear bumper.

Furniture

Going back a bit with the dimensions, compared to its predecessor, the XF 2019 has a shorter and shorter body, but in exchange for the two-axis distance now increased by 51mm to help the foot space up to 87mm same height as the ceiling for the front row is 991mm, for the rear seats is the same 970mm.

And not just an abundance of space, Jaguar of course will make even the most demanding customer to be satisfied with the different class of Riva Hoop design style, blended with high interior materials. grades include Gloss Figured Ebony wood and Dark Hex alloy. In addition, the layout of the interior is full of science combined with a list of convenient features “take care of” to help passengers always comfortable when traveling with XF.

The two rows of seats are covered with soft leather, the seat cushions, backrest and headrest are meticulously calculated to give the user the best care, sitting posture is always comfortable and relaxing. The two front seats feature eight-way power adjustment and four backrest cushioning options, while the driver’s seat adds three additional location memory, which will help family members easily get their favorite sitting position. like when taking turns controlling XF.

The rear seats are spacious enough for all three members, legroom and ceiling space is very abundant even for people as tall as 1m80, but the middle seating position should be better for children when The drivetrain and side air vents are a bit overwhelmed. In return, Jaguar has been observant when equipped with three seat heating levels and an electric sunscreen in the rear glass door, providing true privacy and coziness for passengers.

Refinement and flexibility are the adjectives I have for the tabloid panel of the new generation XF, despite its driver-oriented design, the upper line “moving” is very elegant. Combined with that is the center console area arranged “in a straight line”, immediately reaching both the gear lever and the armrest between the two front seats. These two factors make the cabin both youthful and modern, while expressing elegance and nobility.

The steering wheel at XF 2019 is still Jaguar’s familiar, simple, three-spoke design. You will certainly love the feel of touching the smooth skin surface as well as the use of neatly organized function buttons at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock. And as an incentive for the driver to use two gearshift paddles, Jaguar arranges at the center of the steering wheel a powerful newspaper, as I am a speed lover, these details really ” suggestive ”and full of appeal.

The dashboard is sporting a sporty version of the XF Prestige 2.0 Si4, with two velocity clusters and 3D-rimmed chrome trim ring, alternating with a multi-information screen and a strong blue tone. A simple yet effective design not only makes the cabin more beautiful, but also makes it easy and intuitive to keep track of parameters.

And if you still want to drive with the XF to be more exciting and truly classy, ​​Jaguar offers a 12.3-inch display called Virtual Instrument that is extremely sharp. The equipment is included in the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system package and customers can choose it, similar to the speed / gearshift / navigation display on the Head-up Display steering glass.

Inside the car door, the British automaker uses a range of high-quality materials, from dark painted wood panels, expensive carbon coating, chrome-plated door switches to leather and stitching completely floating pedestals. hands, in addition to four glass doors are equipped with one-touch electric adjustment. These equipment not only make the cabin more luxurious, but also make passengers always feel comfortable and comfortable with XF.

Convenient

Taking on the role of bringing fresh air and comfort throughout the journey of the passengers is an independent two-zone automatic air conditioning system and comes with air cavity for the rear seats. The point seems to be nothing too different and outstanding for a luxury car, but Jaguar often brings details that are not in the spec sheet and difficult to measure with money.

As mentioned above, Jaguar offers two options for customers: InControl Touch or InControl Touch Pro. The first option, with an 8-inch touch screen and front function buttons, can easily control all entertainment features or the air-conditioning system. The list of features includes satellite navigation, hands-free calling, Bluetooth / USB / AUX / iPod / Radio connectivity, Internet access via Wi-fi transmitter, 13 Maridian speakers of 380 Watt. All will help the driver and the passengers to entertain and enjoy their trip in the best way.

More advanced, XF will own 10.2-inch touch screen with the ability to display 3D maps or music storage up to 10Gb, most notably Maridian 17 speakers with capacity of 825 Watt “quality” ”From Jaguar’s optional upgrade package. This will be the perfect choice for technology believers or those who are demanding, want to experience sound at the highest standard on an original car.

Other facilities not to mention in the XF 2019 include a smart key along with a button to start and open / lock the door with one touch for convenient access to the vehicle; Integrated cruise control system limits the speed to support the driver more leisurely and safe; One-touch electric sunroof makes the cabin more airy; The optional 10-color decorative lighting system brings elegance and distinct class to the interior.

Operation – Safety

According to information from genuine Jaguar importer, Vietnamese customers will be able to “hold the reins” of XF 2019 through two dynamic systems as follows:

2.0L Si4 turbocharged petrol engine, 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. All produce 200 horsepower and reach maximum torque of 300 Nm allows the car to reach a maximum speed of 234 km / h, the ability to accelerate from 0 -100 km / h in 7.1 seconds. Combined fuel consumption of 7.5L / 100km.

Jaguar XF is also equipped with 4 driving modes, including Normal (normal), Eco (Eco), Winter (winter, foggy, smooth) and Dynamic (sport). In addition, XF has the ability to operate flexibly thanks to the All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) technology that automatically recognizes slippery and less frictional roads such as rain or crushed stone, from It warns and maintains itself at a speed of 3.6 to 36 km / h.

Extra powerful support for strength and superior operating technologies, Jaguar is also a pioneer in making the XF completely with an aluminum alloy chassis, which helps reduce weight but still ensure stability as well as safety. for passengers. In addition, the British car company also arranged the bars in the engine compartment, minimizing vibration affecting the cabin even when the car starts to start.

General assessment

It can be seen, Jaguar XF 2019 is not for those who accept a “luxury luxury car”, easily caught, recognized and quickly glided on the street. The sedan with the jaguar logo has an irresistible appeal to the opposite person, not only for its elegant English-style appearance but also for the strong internal force hidden under the capo.
