Op­tions? That’s stan­dard

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives - OR TRY THESE...

Stan­dard equip­ment is where the value equa­tion gets shaky. All vari­ants get ac­tive safety as­sists in­clud­ing AEB, au­to­matic LED head­lights, a re­vers­ing cam­era and Jaguar’s widescreen Touch­pro in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem. But it costs more than it should to get things like Ap­ple Carplay and key­less en­try, the lat­ter of which is still a $ 950 op­tion on the D240 that costs al­most $70K. Jaguar says F-pace buy­ers spend be­tween 15 and 20 per­cent of a car’s pur­chase price on op­tions, and E-pace buy­ers should be bud­get­ing to do the same to get the full ex­pe­ri­ence.
