Jaguar has released more bits of technical info on the all-new F-Pace crossover SUV that's set to bow at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Based on the same platform as the F-Type sports car, the automaker's first ever entry into the SUV segment will augment its purpose-tuned version of the F-Type's sophisticated independent suspension with an on-demand all-wheel drive system that features torque vectoring plus a uniquely tuned electric power-assist steering. Jag claims F-Pace will have a combination of performance and agility unsurpassed in the small performance SUV segment.

"We haven't made any compromises or exceptions," noted Chief Engineer Mike Cross. "We've tested ride and handling to extremities in all environments and in all conditions, and the result is that the new F-Pace is as engaging and rewarding to drive as it is going to be enjoyable to own."
