The Jaguar F-Pace has received a range updates heading into 2021, but according to Chief Project Engineer Colin Kirkpatrick, this is more than your average facelift. His words ring true when you review all the changes in the exterior, cabin and engine lineup.

Purely visual enhancements include plastic body kit parts, different hood cover and redesigned rear door. Gone is the annoying visible gap between the front bumper and the hood, and the radiator grille gains in size. The new LED headlights are also larger than the old ones.

On the inside, the F-Pace boasts a brand new front panel, a bi-color trim, a switch-like gear selector on the sloping center console, and a drive mode knob.

An 11.4-inch, curved, touch-enabled infotainment display encased in a thin magnesium alloy frame dominates the interior, accompanied by a digital dashboard and a heads-up display.

The new model year ships with two diesel engines rated at 163 hp (121 kW) and 204 hp (152 kW). The old 250-hp (186-kW) gasoline engine is now restricted to the lower trim levels. Higher trims offer a choice of three six-cylinders: a 300-hp (224-kW) diesel one and a gasoline one available in 340 hp (254 kW) and 400 hp (298 kW) variants.

A plug-in hybrid rounds things off with a two-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and an electric motor linked to a small-yield battery. It commands 404 hp (301 kW) and can run 53 km (33 miles) on electricity alone. Getting from zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes only 5.3 seconds.
