Video review – Jaguar F Pace 20d AWD

I love a panoramic roof – like having a convertible without worrying about the weather

This time I have a 2016 Jaguar F Pace 20d AWD on review, again borrowed a local dealer, Kevin Giles Motors, for review.   This is Jaguar’s first foray into the SUV market, and in my opinion they’ve scored.
