World’s sexiest SUV heading for London Motor Show

Jaguar's seriously cool SUV is heading for the London Motor Show. Launched a year ago, there is a real buzz around the Jaguar F-PACE.

The Jaguar F-PACE was named 2017 World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year at the World Car of the Year awards in New York in April. And you can catch it at the London Motor Show this week (4-7 May).

Designed, developed and built in the UK, the Jaguar F-PACE was judged to be the best car this year by a panel of 75 influential motoring journalists from all over the world in April. The Jaguar is the first British car to have won the World Car of the Year title - let alone two titles - and will proudly be on display in unique World Car of the Year livery, along with its trophies for the London Motor Show crowds.

These latest wins continue an incredible run of awards for the Jaguar F-PACE since its introduction in April 2016. As well as becoming the fastest-selling Jaguar ever, the F-PACE has collected more than 40 awards, including Women's World Car of the Year, Auto Express Car of the Year and The Telegraph's Best Premium SUV Award.

Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK MD, said: "The Jaguar F-PACE is one of the greatest British automotive success stories and the fastest-selling Jaguar ever; fully developed and built in the UK, it's managed to triumph over some of the world's largest brands to win two World Car of the Year titles."

It is already the most searched Jaguar ever in the UK with 4.4 million unique page views of F-PACE content since launch and more than 680,000 people taking the time to configure their dream F-PACE online.

Jaguar's first performance SUV is designed and developed in the UK and built at Solihull. The business invested £120m in its Solihull facility to build the F-PACE, part of a total £2bn investment in the plant and awarded £5bn of UK supplier contracts to support its production.

Engine options for the F-PACE range from the efficient and innovative four-cylinder 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel, with CO2 emissions as low as 126g/km to the high-performance 380PS, supercharged V6 petrol model that can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 5.5 seconds.

The Jaguar F-PACE, priced from £34,730 is available to order now at Jaguar UK retailers. If you can't afford to treat yourself, enjoy it in all its glory at the London Motor Show instead.
