Fair play. I’d like to give it a go then. Wonder walnut happens over 50cm?!
Wonder Walnut was always my favourite of the lesser-known DC Comics superheroes

Yes, it certainly felt as if the water was well above the level of the bottom of the doors, and I just checked with a tape measure - they are only 30cm above ground. The Jaguar logo is at 45 cm. No leakage to report anyway.
Is that with the suspension set to off-road height?
That’s a good question. I guess the manual would specifically have to mention this. If it doesn’t then those with standard suspension should still be able to wade at 500mm.

Many JLR vehicles I Pace included can wade much deeper, but it is the stability that starts to suffer eventually and some cars start to float. I had a RR and a Discovery in nearly 90cm of water once on an off road course, it was fine providing I took it really slowly, but I could just imagine, much more depth and it would take off. I have done quite a few Landrover Off road Experience days and its amazing what these cars can actually do. Not sure what the I Pace could actually handle, but I would bet 50cm is well within its safety zone.

I have standard suspension. And sorry, I can't do it again for the moment, as I think the flood has now subsided.

Interesting -and one of the reasons I got the iPace - we have quite a few floods round here. The bigger problem can be the speed of water - 40cm of water flowing quickly enough will sweep you off a ford into the river and then you're really stuck and the car probably written off! I read of some one in a land rover discovery who had that problem. Scary! Standing water much safer

For those of us roughing it without the air suspension on old fashioned coil springs the bottom of the doors are 28cm above ground.

I think we have the same maximum permitted wading depth but haven't tried it yet!

Well done! I hope you were seen by some of the ICE drivers who turned back.

Wading becomes Swimming?

Not recommended, but there is this (should be able to get traction by steering / rotating wheels) :

With air suspension I think it heightens the suspension when it detects "swimming" is happening:

Extended mode is an automatic suspension height setting that raises the vehicle to assist manoeuvring in the event that the vehicle is:

Grounded in severe off-road conditions.

Lowered onto an obstacle.

Wading in deep water.

Driving in narrow ruts.

That's true, there is that entry in the manual. I wonder how high is extended mode, and what is the top limit for "additional lifting"!
Extended mode is an automatic suspension height setting that raises the vehicle to assist manoeuvring in the event that the vehicle is:

The instrument panel displays an extended mode confirmation message and the LED indicator lamps flash.

Once the extended mode height is achieved, additional lifting can be requested, if required. Press the brake pedal to maintain control of the vehicle. Press the up button (1) for longer than 3 seconds.
