The 2016 Jaguar F-Pace has been spied undergoing testing in the United Kingdom.

Destined to become the brand's first crossover, the F-Pace draws inspiration from the C-X17 concept and features a prominent grille that is flanked by large air intakes and LED-infused headlights. Interestingly, this prototype appears to be a performance variant as there are telltale Jaguar S styling cues including red brake calipers and a sporty dual exhaust system that mimics the one on the XE S.

Jaguar has been tight-lipped about specifications but this prototype is likely powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that develops 340 bhp (253 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. If that's too much of a good thing, there will also be less powerful variants with Ingenium four-cylinder engines.
