F-Pace was Jaguar's first SUV model and not even Jaguar themselves could not have hoped for such a success with their very first SUV model. The F-Pace was so successful because of its unique design combined with Jaguar's sporty and youthful nature. Even though being faced with lots of financial issues over the past few years, Jaguar has not shied away from producing very competitive and powerful cars in its line up. And now Jaguar has introduced a mild update to the F-Pace with the focus more on improving the luxury and technology. There are no major mechanical changes with the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 as the engine and chassis are almost identical to the 2020 model.

The R-Dynamic model is the high-performance trim of the regular F-Pace with a more powerful engine that produces higher power output than the usual model. The main reason which hindered the progress of the F-Pace even though being a very successful SUV in the segment was because of the very competitive and powerful German rivals. All the rivals to the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 are German. These include the likes of Audi SQ5, Mercedes-AMG GLC 43, and BMW X3 M40i.

How comfortable is the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400?

Like all Jaguar models and even like the previous generation F-Pace, the 2021 model is expected to retain the British elegance and craftsmanship very intact. There are plenty of soft-touch materials found all over the cabin along with some open-pore wood and aluminum accents which give it a very premium feel and appeal.

As with the space on the inside, the 2021 F-Pace has lots of space on both the front row and rear row of seats making it comfortable for its passengers. The interior is now more driver-focused, offering an enhanced sense of connectivity and refinement. At the center console, it gets a new centrally-mounted 11.4” curved-glass HD touchscreen cased in elegant magnesium alloy, which can be used to control the latest Pivi Pro infotainment system.

This is the only aspect where the 2021 F-Pace might feel falling short of all of its rivals. All the German SUVs have more space both the front row and rear row of seats. But unless compared with its rivals, the 2021 F-Pace has some decent space on the interiors to hold 5 passengers with comfort.

How good is the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400's infotainment?

With the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400, Jaguar has fixed the major issue which plagued the sales and reliability of its previous generation models. It was the sluggish and unresponsive infotainment system which in its lifetime decided to call a day off pretty much every time you use it. Though it was intuitive and featured slick graphics, the crashes and bugs made life difficult for all of its users. Thankfully, Jaguar has listened to all the feedback and has worked on the infotainment system a lot.

Jaguar took a long time to fix the infotainment system but at least, after all this wait, we get a better system onboard the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400. The system is Jaguar Land Rover's latest new Pivi Pro infotainment system which builds on the positives of the previous generation system along with fixing the issues it faced. The system is paired with a 14.1-inch curved glass HD touchscreen system and is expected to be more intuitive and responsive than the previous one. The driver now also gets a 12.3-inch Interactive Driver's Display with enhanced graphics along with full-screen navigation mode and turn by turn navigation which makes it a lot easier as it is in the line of sight of the driver.

The highlights of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400's infotainment system are:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration
  • 380 Watts 14 speaker Meridian Premium audio system with 1 subwoofer
  • Wi-Fi and 4G Hotspot
  • Heads up display
  • Dynamic volume control
  • Navigation system with turn by turn navigation
  • Over the air software updates

What are the creature comforts in the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400?

Being the latest model in the Jaguar lineup of cars and the new SUV in the segment, the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 does benefit with lots of creature comforts and convenience features as standard. These features include the likes of a wireless charger, cabin air ionizer, adaptive cruise control, 3D camera, ambient lighting, heated seats, keyless entry, and engine noise calculation.

What is the cargo capacity on offer?

Jaguar has packed the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 with a desirable cargo space of 33.5 cubic feet. This is easily the best boot with lots of space as standard without folding the rear seats. And yes, the rear seats have the split-folding function which now opens up the boot space to a whopping 63.5 cubic feet which again is the best maximum cargo carrying capacity in the segment.

Also, the loading lip on the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 is low enough to make sure that loading larger items into the boot is very easy. Finally, given its an SUV means that it has a very wide and easy boot opening through which even larger items can be loaded inside with great ease.

Among its rivals, the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 easily beats them all with the highest cargo carrying capacity both as standard and with the rear seats folded. The closest rival to the F-Pace in terms of cargo carrying capacity is the 2021 BMW X3 M40i. The X3 M40i has a standard cargo carrying capacity at 28.7 cubic feet and a maximum cargo-carrying capacity of 62.7 cubic feet which is just slightly lesser than what the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 offers.

What are the other storage spaces inside?

The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 is a high-performance model of the regular F-Pace which is a luxury SUV. And being an SUV means that it will be practical with lots of useful storage spaces inside the cabin. Jaguar has also cleverly engineered the 2021 F-Pace with lots of useful spaces to make sure that you have enough space for all your items. There is a small space under the front center armrest along with a space on the front of it that can be opened and closed using a sliding door mechanism that feels really premium to touch and use. The glove box is decently sized and the door pockets present on all the four doors can accommodate larger water bottles with great ease.

Is the interior of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 sporty enough?

Even though based on a Jaguar F-Pace which is a luxury model, the R-Dynamic S 400 differentiates itself very well with the standard model. On the interior too, being the latest model in the Jaguar line up gives the 2021 F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 a great advantage with lots of features and technology as standard equipment. Thankfully, with the new Pivi Pro infotainment system, several interface related problems have been fixed. This combined with its very spacious, luxurious, and sporty interiors makes it a great choice in the segment among its rivals.

2021 Audi

Pros - Seats are power-adjustable, space, storage cubbies, SiriusXM.

Cons - Gas guzzling V8, costly options.

One of the most reliable options. My RSQ8 is the best when it comes to the power but the way it delivers it is smooth and comfortable with easy to drive. The handling is good and it moves effortlessly in traffic as well in congested spaces. The infotainment screen is big, bright, and responsive. The interior is good. It is Spacious and airy. Seats are comfortable, and it has a number of good features as standard. Bulky styling The brakes work fantastically, which I feel makes me feel safer, rather than trying to rely on airbags, and belts. Excels in almost all conditions. Got a good deal so I? happy with what I paid. good team of staff
