The 2016 Jaguar F-Pace has been spied wearing a production body for the first time

The 2016 Jaguar F-Pace has been spied wearing a production body for the first time.

Previewed by the C-X17 concept, the production model has a rectangular grille that is flanked by large air intakes and XF-inspired headlights. The crossover has also a sculpted hood, an upward sweeping shoulder line and a sporty roof. Moving further back, there's wraparound taillights, a dual exhaust system and a tailgate-mounted spoiler.

Our spies couldn't get close enough to snap interior photos but Jaguar has previously said the F-Pace will be a five-seater with class-leading interior space, luxurious interior finishes and cutting-edge technology.

Jaguar has been tight-lipped about specifications but the model is expected to ride on the iQ[Al] platform and feature engines sourced from the entry-level XE sedan. This means we can expect a variety of four-cylinder Ingenium engines and possibly a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that develops 340 bhp (253 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque.
