Like buses, you wait for one, then three of them arrive at once

Jaguar has just released a trio of new models in the shape of the F-Pace, the XE and the XF.

The astute will notice lots of Es, Xs and Fs littered among those names, but don’t be fooled, they’re all very distinct vehicles.

The F-Pace, Jaguar’s high-end SUV, is less angular than previous models. It features a freshly sculpted bonnet, with an enlarged grille and a new front bumper and tailgate. Inside, it’s all open-pore wood veneers and aluminium, with an 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen taking pride of place on the console.

Engine-wise, you’ll have plenty to choose from as the car comes with a full-hybrid powertrain, or a petrol or diesel mild-hybrid option. The fastest version will get you from 0-100 kilometres per hour in five seconds.

Next in line is the XF, which comes in Saloon and Sportbrake versions. This one also has a rejigged bumper and grille, alongside lower air intakes and side vents featuring Jaguar’s Leaper emblem. That same touchscreen is again a feature inside a cabin that the manufacturer says has been designed to offer greater serenity and refinement for driver and passengers alike.

XFs are available with both petrol and diesel 2-litre engines, with the speediest having a 0-100kph time of 5.8 seconds.

Finally, we come to the XE, Jaguar’s reinvigorated saloon that, like the F-Pace, comes with a mix of liquid fuel and mild hybrid options, each based around 2-litre engines. The XE’s fastest version just pips the XF with a timing of 5.6 seconds.

This one hasn’t had the same design reworking as its new brethren, retaining the updates which were a feature of last year’s version. Inside, it has a 10-inch touchscreen amid soft-touch detailing and a new seating quilt design.

Arrival times in the UAE are yet to be announced, as are final prices, but in sterling the F-Pace starts at £40,860 ($53,253), the XF £32,585 ($42,468) and the XE £29,635 ($38,623).
