The Jaguar F-Pace performance SUV has added a five-star Euro NCAP rating to its 2017 World Car of the Year title.
The performance SUV, which also won World Car Design of the Year at the 2017 World Car Awards, scored 93 per cent for adult occupant protection, 85 per cent for child occupant protection and 80 per cent for pedestrian protection.
The combination of award winning design, innovative engineering and now a five-star safety rating marks the F-Pace out as the ultimate family car. This result also confirms the current Pace family’s safety status following the recent award of five stars to the all-new E-Pace compact SUV.
The F-Pace features advanced safety technology such as Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, as standard, which can detect a collision risk with cars or pedestrians in the road ahead and automatically apply the brakes.
The F-Pace has become the fastest-selling Jaguar ever, with the 100,000th vehicle recently rolling off the production line in England.
It features an aluminium intensive architecture with six airbags to create a strong occupant safety cell, allied with a suite of advanced driver assistance systems. This combination of active and passive safety measures helped deliver an overall Euro NCAP rating of 85 per cent.
