Good news Jaguar fans. The latest spy shots of the 2016 Jaguar F-Pace show the high-riding Jaguar being tested at the Nürburgring, which is a promising sign for the British brand’s first crossover. Unfortunately, there is still heavy camouflage obscuring the styling of the F-Pace, but these images do reveal a couple of minor details.

The biggest change that has occurred from previous cold-weather test mules spotted in February, is this F-Pace is wearing lower-profile tires with what could be more production-intent wheels. As is usually the case with vehicle design translated from concept to production form, the tire/wheel packages on this prototype don’t do as good a job of filling the wheel wells as the ones on the 2014 Jaguar C-X17 Concept.

Taken from a higher vantage point, these spy shots give a slight glimpse of the size of the F-Pace’s sunroof, which extends almost all the way to the C-pillar. Perhaps the only change between the two recent set of spy shots is that this Nürburgring-lapping F-Pace wears a little less camo on the front fenders, indicating the presence of a fender vent – a Jaguar styling cue also found on the C-X17.

We shouldn’t have to wait too much longer to see the full design of the F-Pace, since the crossover is slated to make its big debut in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Why it matters

While these spy shots don’t reveal any new styling details about the 2016 Jaguar F-Pace, they do show one way that Jaguar will differentiate the F-Pace from the small SUVs offered by Land Rover. While Land Rover’s full lineup promises go-anywhere off-road abilities, the F-Pace looks to carry Jaguar’s family tradition of being on-road performers.
