Which used Jaguar F-Pace estate should I buy?
The range kicks-off with Prestige, which is our recommended spec since it has all you really need and is available with the smaller engines. R Sport looks sportier, but the ride isn't quite so good with 19in alloys. The top-of-the-range S models are reserved for V6 engines. This does mean you get even bigger 20in alloy wheels, but it does come with adaptive suspension which has a comfort mode to help.
The 3.0-litre V6 diesel is an excellent choice if you can afford it. We would recommend the 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel on balance for its efficiency and generally gutsy performance. The eight-speed automatic helps to keep the engine’s diesel drone hushed once up to speed.
If you want petrol power, then the 247bhp 2.0-litre is a punchy performer that remains smooth at higher revs. Which is just as well really since its deficit of torque in comparison to the diesels means you will need to use plenty of revs to make quick progress. You could solve that by going for the supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol, and while it sounds great and can embarrass a number of serious sports cars at the traffic light grand prix, its low fuel economy can be difficult to stomach.
