SniffPetrol Provides Entertaining Review Of the Jaguar F-Pace

By - F-Pace

SniffPetrol is a site more known for its satirical news pieces, but occasionally they manage to throw that comedy and wit into a car review, and you get something that feels a bit magical. Case in point, this Jaguar F-Pace review. Presented in a diary-style format, we get to follow along as daring author Richard Porter lives a full eight days with the latest SUV from British(ish) manufacturer.

From constant remarks of how good it looks outside, to frequent reminders of some disappointment inside, it feels like an actual diary of how the job of an auto reviewer goes. It’s just a mish-mash of thoughts and observations that coalesce into a semblance of something readable. My favorite bits are about the way people he meets react to the F-Pace. It’s one of the best parts of the job, and he captured the experience brilliantly. The neighbor with the Golf and the friend “C” up north are the gems from the mix.

Of course there is a fair bit of driving impressions thrown into the whole thing, and overall it seems as though Mr. Porter quite liked the new crossover. He calls it sharp and surprisingly nimble for a machine of its size.  There is also a healthy dose of praise awarded to the V6 diesel hiding under the hood. With nearly 300 horsepower and a 0-60 sprint of less than six seconds, it’s sprightly.

The final verdict is a positive one, and like everything else it’s also funny.

No, I’m not going to ruin the joke for you. Just go read the original post.
