Who better to ask about the thinking behind the new F-Pace than the man who headed up its chassis development, Mike Cross? For our latest video, the Jaguar chief engineer takes Autocar editor-in-chief Steve Cropley for a ride in the new model and explains why he thinks the F-Pace is the F-Type of the SUV world.

The all-new car is arguably one of Jaguar’s most important ever - not only is it the marque’s first SUV but it also enters into the world’s fastest growing car segment.

The F-Pace's wheels are aimed squarely at the Porsche Macan. Can it really take on the segment's long-standing performance benchmark?

Wow Mike cross is boring, good at his job though and looks a good car.

I thought, what, you mean I'll be taking it back for warranty issues on a bi-monthly basis. Seriously though, it looks good, goes quietly and should sell well. Pity about some of the low rent plastics here and there.
