Sounds like somebody with speech impediment is trying to say Space. There's a very odd black plastic filler piece in the rear side door jamb where the alloy must have too wrinkly to show. Still . Pretty innocuous best-selling jaguar to-be. Looks better than the XE.
As my daughter says , a Yes UV.

Seriously uncool. As are all "sporty" SUVs.

Can't really see much "Jaguar" in it. This does look very much like everything else on the market. Hope it looks more imposing in the flesh.

Another addition to the world of cancerous faeces SUV's. These vile sh**boxes like Tiguans, quashkys, Kugers, sportages, and all the other scrapyard dross littering our roads, and anybody buying one should be offered free counselling by mental health specialists, after being sectioned! Please! Please! can we have designers back into the motor manufacturers, instead of a computer which can design a sh**box in about 3 minutes!!!!

My wife loves her Kuga. It was designed by people , to deliver what people want ,over a period of three years rather than three minutes. Computers helped but do you seriously think they'd make them unless people have gone off sitting low down in progressively lower and wider cars? I find the Q7 comically vulgar and the Kuga a bit big but quite like this Jaguar.

Sort of related but not but apparently the Audi Q5 is one the better cars to buy as regards depreciation.

Unfortunately the Q5 is a sack of crap.
3 guys I know who've had them hate them
and one had to be towed out of a ditch
the one and only time it'd have been useful
to have a car with any type of road capability.


I think the F-Pace could be in this later category....

I partially agree however I've just been through this topic on FaecesBook.

It's not a computer that designs the cars yet, computers in that respect in industry have not changed since 1970. They are not self aware, they cannot design anything, zilch, zero and nowt.
They are told what to do by the programmer and (in this case) the designer. The man or woman using the computer as an aid (like I/we did on the drawing board) to design the car or product. It's a tool like the drawing board (though far more dynamic) and it's the designer that designs the car.
The clue is in the name Computer Aided Design. What has changed is our knowledge and particularly safety. Today both occupants and pedestrians are far, far better off than they ever were, it just so happens for us old fuddy duddy farts, new designs don't move us or remind us of the past.

I'm an exception because I love modern cars as much as old. These SUV's are boring and sheite to behold however . There is an exception in the form of Range Rover's, I know some are footballers cars but I love them, the rest just wish.

I'm not going anywhere, I'm just going.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
