JAGUAR F-PACE collects ‘BEST SUV’ award at Fleet World honours

The Jaguar F-PACE, the fastest-selling Jaguar ever, has been crowned Fleet World’s ‘Best SUV’ at the annual Fleet World Honours.

With an aluminium-intensive construction and ultra-efficient Ingenium engines, the F-PACE was not only praised for being great to drive, but also for its low cost of ownership figures and modern technology.

Steve Moody, Fleet World Publisher, said: “The long-awaited F-PACE offers an impressive all-round package, somehow managing to be both an engaging drivers’ car and a genuinely practical SUV. Plentiful use of aluminium to save weight helps both agility and fuel consumption, there’s plenty of room and useful tech inside, and two and four-wheel-drive versions to suit drivers’ needs.”

The honour is the fourth major global award won by the F-PACE this year, and the 31st since it was introduced in 2016. Already in the F-PACE’s trophy cabinet is Auto Express’ Car of the Year title and Women’s World Car of the Year for 2016.

Jon Wackett, Fleet & Business General Manager, Jaguar Land Rover UK said: “We have been working extremely hard to introduce a range of Jaguar and Land Rover models that are not only very desirable but also make good financial case for the fleet market. Our lightweight, low-emissions models, including the F-PACE, have been hugely successful among fleet and business buyers, and we’re constantly updating the range to ensure we stay ahead of our rivals.”

The 18 Model Year Jaguar F-PACE features a new 163PS four-cylinder 2.0-litre diesel Ingenium variant with emissions as low as 126g/km†. The arrival of a manual RWD derivative delivers 380Nm of torque and impressive fuel economy of up to 59.2mpg (4.8l/100km)* making it the most efficient engine in the range. These credentials earn it the E-Performance badge, which is reserved for models that combine traditional Jaguar performance with the most affordable ownership costs and optimised efficiency.

In addition, the existing 180PS four-cylinder Ingenium diesel is available with an automatic RWD transmission for the first time as part of the 2018 Model Year enhancements, delivering CO2 emissions of 134g/km and combined fuel economy of 55.4mpg (5.1l/100km).
