Jaguar has expanded its F-Pace SUV line-up with two special edition models for 2019, as well as uprated interior technology and lower emissions for the rest of the range.

The F-Pace 300 Sport arrives with unique exterior styling, 22in alloy wheels and 300 Sport-branded yellow brake calipers to set it apart from existing F-Pace models, as well as bespoke front and rear badges. 

It can be optioned with either a 2.0-litre petrol engine capable of 62mph in 6.1 seconds and a 145mph top speed, or with a 3.0-litre V6 diesel good for 0-62mph in 6.4 seconds and a 150mph top speed. It also runs on ultra low-rolling resistance tyres, which have been included across the range to improve CO2 emissions.

The yellow theme continues inside with contrasting stitching across the instrument panel, centre console and leather seats. The steering wheel and front seat headrests get embossed 300 Sport logos. Jaguar says the 300 Sport includes £8430 of extra kit included as standard, including Touch Pro navigation, a 12.3in digital instrument cluster, panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable heated seats and a Meridian sound system.

"The F-Pace line-up has something for everyone," Jaguar design director Ian Callum said. "The latest special editions build on this visual appeal by enhancing the model’s sporting character to each create something unique.”

The F-Pace follows the XE saloon, which received a 300 Sport edition late last year. The sportier model is available to order now from £53,980.

The Chequered Flag special edition is based on the existing R-Sport model, but includes a sports front bumper and black detailing on the grille, side vents and roof rails. It rides on 20in black alloy wheels and upgrades the interior with meshed aluminium and leather trim, Chequered Flag-branded treadplates, panoramic sunroof, 10-way electric front seats and Meridian Sound System as standard.

It also includes the Touch Pro navigation system, 12.3-in digital instrument cluster and Touch Pro infotainment. All F-Pace models now include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

"With this latest raft of updates to the F-Pace, buyers have more choice, better value for money and the addition of the latest infotainment technology as standard," Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover's UK MD, said. "Rather than drastically alter what is already a very successful formula, we’ve simply made changes where it matters.”

Chequered Flag edition cars are available to order now from £46,995, with a choice of 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines.

Somethings wrong..  I came on here to read todays 'Range Rover Evoque is the bestest car in the universe' article but can't find it anywhere... I suppose this will have to do for now.

If it's not the article you were expecting rather than comment on it just ignore it.

I think The Apprentice is being ironic given Autocar's teeny-tiny bias towards the Evoque in about 99.987% of features.

Peter, firstly congrats for not capitalizing the word "car" I think you'll agree it looks far better onscreen, nice job! So could we, the forum users, now ask for a little more? Could you try and use "grammerly" on your computer, it will help massively with your comma usage and other wonky grammer. Then, and this will be the tough part, try and avoid all you many, many posts just sounding like a grumbly old man. Thanks - the rest of us.

Firstly, what are we meant to talking about on the Autocar web page?secondly, can’t you get the jist of the post?, maybe you should put cv in for head of department?, I know my English isn’t perfect but I enjoy commenting, I try to be fair, occasionally not, I have opinions on most topics, free country and all that, but, picking on peoples grammar is largely counter productive....

@sevensixty When you cheekily take someone apart for their grammar then you really should ensure that your own grammar is spot on. You have at least six errors in one paragraph. Now that IS a complete embarrassment.

I've noticed that some people on this forum are becoming extremely snappy and rude. Please pack it in.

I'm making over $7k a month working low maintenance. I continued hearing other individuals disclose to me how a lot of cash they can make on the web so I chose to investigate it. All things considered, it was all valid and has completely transformed me. This is my main event, ℂashverity.ℂom
