Jaguar F-PACE is the first SUV from Jaguar, a todocamino of compact dimensions that will arrive at dealers in 2016 to deal with models that are as varipintos as the BMW X3, or even the Porsche Cayenne. The intentions of Jaguar to launch a SUV back years ago. And the result of what we have in this Jaguar F-PACE, which by dimensions is located at an intermediate point between an Audi Q5 and an Audi Q7, with seating for five passengers.
