Bahrain Confidential showcases some of our favourite cars.
JAGUAR F-PACE S
Sleek and sexy like Jaguar makes them, the F-PACE S also has a strong chassis built into a powerful, supercharged V-6 engine. What’s special about this Jaguar is it’s a crossover, which means that it has the power of a sports car and the practicality and efficiency of an SUV.
Practical and powerful, this car would be perfect for people who need to transport two or more adults every day, but its crossover versatility can also make it workable for a variety of different situations. With its good looks, roomy interior and dynamic driving character, the F-PACE S is a car compelling.

In comparison to the V8, which has a 318 hp; the V6 has a 257 hp and 396 nmt. It delivers best in class power in the V6 category with 12% more torque in the driving range than the competition while having the same pulling capacity as the V8.
The V6 Patrol is the smart choice for families who want their SUV’s elegant, powerful, and safe; not to mention fuel efficient. It has all the elements of being another legendary all-terrain hero: fuel efficiency, power and prestige.

CAYENNE GTS 2016
Despite its bulk, the Cayenne GTS 2016 handles beautifully with its excellent steering and precise handling. It is not only sportier than a Range Rover Sport but also most sports car. The base Cayenne produces 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque with a 3.6-liter V6; the Cayenne S gets 420 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque out of its V6.
The Cayenne was face lifted in 2015, with a Macan-style front end and various enhancements. The interior GTS package is optionally available in carmine red and rhodium silver as well with other elements in contrasting colour. It’s safe to say that though the Cayenne GTS 2016 is modestly powered huge and quite raised, it is an absolute pleasure to drive it.
The luxury SUV is priced at BD39,000
