Our Subaru hauls dogs, handcrafted pottery, sporting gear, and whatever other cargo needs to be moved from Point A to Point B in all sorts of weather and road conditions. So bang-for-the-buck factored heavily into the decision of what SUV to acquire based upon our needs. Maintenance is easy and routine. I don't need or want an overly-expensive Jaguar vehicle to fill this role in our fleet. So to each his/her own....

I'll grant you that choosing a spouse requires a very different set of criteria. For most folks, anyway....

Haha I doubt many luxury SUV/crossover owners will stoop their vehicles so low for such everyday utility or off-road excursions to some rugged terrains as seen in TV ads that always crack me up.... not the Jaguar F-Pace or the Bentley Bentayga.

Which gives me an idea for a new thread - "How many of you would really haul dogs, cats and work gear in your F-Pace?"

Cheers,
Wolfy

That's exactly what I use my Land Rover for. Plus boat towing duty.

The LR3's, LR4's, Discos yes, probably not the higher-end Rangies. But then, today's upmarket RR's are not the same utilitarian RR's from 15-20 year's ago. I have never seen a Range Rover towing stuff here in L.A.

I do like the look of the F-Pace compared to any other SUV's and if I were in the market for one, it would be first on my list. However, I don't go off-road so the extra clearance is not needed or wanted. I wish JLR would bring the XF SportBrake pictured below to North America. You get all the utility or more of an SUV with the performance of a premium sports sedan, and better looks to boot (subjectively of course). I have come to accept that the N.A. market is not there due to soccer moms everywhere wanting high sight lines regardless of the compromise in fuel-consumption, safety and handling.

The manufacturer that manages to make wagons/estates/sportbrakes cool again will be ahead of the curve when fuel-efficiency combined with utility become more top of mind.

love the SportBrake! Low and mean, especially in black. Reminds me a bit of the Magnum I had a few years ago, 5.7L V8 which I supercharged and customized the front end.

I'm serious! Out here in El-Lay most people use their Toyotas and Tahoes to tow stuff. The late model Land Rovers never get down and dirty.

That pic looks like a screenshot from a video game.

I read, I looked I bought....without a hesitation, ordered an F-Pace on the spot through the Jaguar USA site and was pleased to know it is in the pipe for me for late summer.

Oh, hell no. That's a station wagon not an SUV. There's a difference.

Problem is the lack of reality in Ca. Just bustin folks. Back east, I see luxury SUV's doing their job quite often. My X5 hauls furniture, Home Depot trips, Kayaks , boats etc. Tires all the time. Yea, it gets dirty but that's what vacuums are for. My wife loves them, but the small tank is a MAJOR negative for this long distance traveler used to 550-600 mile range on his X35d that also hauls a$$ when needed. I do a door to door 375 mile trip non -stop for 20yrs and want that 2-4 gallon reserve when I get there to get back down to gas up on way home. at 16.6 gal, if its lucky to get 25 mpg (Tata mileage figures are a bit of a laugh these days) I'm deep in the fuel light zone and in 0 degree winter I'll never see 25, maybe 22-23 in reality. My claimed 30mpg Evoque is lucky to see 25 on highway at our 80mph runs and that's only a 2L.
