of the all-wheel drive sys­tem, Dy­namic Sta­bil­ity Con­trol and tech­nolo­gies such as Jaguar’s rev­o­lu­tion­ary All-Sur­face Progress Con­trol. The work done there makes sure that, whether on as­phalt, snow or ice, the F-PACE de­liv­ers the con­nected steer­ing feel and agility fun­da­men­tal to Jaguar dy­nam­ics DNA.

In Dubai, am­bi­ent tem­per­a­tures can ex­ceed 50°C in the shade. When ve­hi­cles are left out in di­rect sun­light, cabin tem­per­a­tures can soar to 70°C – ex­actly what’s needed to en­sure that ev­ery­thing from cli­mate con­trol sys­tems to in­fo­tain­ment touch­screens func­tion per­fectly in ex­tremes of heat and hu­mid­ity.

And while the test engi­neers can re­lax in air-con­di­tioned com­fort as they drive in city traf­fic, this part of the test cy­cle is de­signed to place the cool­ing sys­tems un­der very high load through a com­bi­na­tion of high am­bi­ent tem­per­a­tures and low air­flow.

The F-PACE has also been tested over grav­elled moun­tain passes.
