Everybody already knows precisely what the Jaguar F-Pace looks like. The guys from Whitley have shown us accurate concepts and recent spyshots offered information about everything from handling to interior quality. So there is no point in a teaser… unless it's awesome.
After nearly two years of talking about the first crossover in Jaguar history, the F-Pace is only days away from being revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. One more teaser can't hurt, right? That's especially true for one that's as awesome as this, showing how the model comes together piece by piece.

Even before the age of the Transformers movies, such cinematic effects were common. However, Jaguar's job was made difficult by the fact that each component had to be accurately recreated, down to the smallest nut or rubber bushing.

The most important bit of all is the all-aluminum iQ[Al] platform, which helps keep the weight in check. We also enjoyed our first visual glimpse of the double wishbone front and integral link rear suspension whose settings will be designed for on-road handling.

On the engine front, most of the mills will have identical specifications to those offered by the new XE and XF sedan models. The majority of Jaguar's new-found crossover buyers will order the 2-liter diesel, available in two stages of tune. However, an S badge is being shown in this video, which means we are dealing with the same 3-liter supercharged V6 engine. For now, there's no plan for a V8 model, but a fully-electric F-Pace E will come out a year after the regular models.

That takes care of the pace, but what about space? Jaguar says the F-Pace will have room for five people and their luggage. The similarly sized Land Rover Discovery Sport has two more seats under the boot, but they can only be used by children.

If you're looking to buy an off-roader that drives well and isn't made by zee Germans, the F-Pace will be a welcomed sight in early 2016.
