The new Jaguar F-PACE SVR now offers more speed, is more dynamic, and more refined than ever, the company gushed when it released its new SUV.

The pinnacle of the performance SUV range is elevated to another level thanks to the latest enhancements by the SVR team, Jaguar SA said, adding that the updates are delivered by a combination of new hardware and the move to Jaguar’s advanced Electronic Vehicle Architecture – EVA 2.0.

The elevation also includes motorsport-inspired design details, a luxurious and performance-focused interior, and the latest connected convenience technologies.

Speed beast

The new F-PACE SVR is available exclusively with Jaguar’s 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged petrol engine, which produces 405kW and 700Nm torque — an increase of 20Nm.

This uplift in torque delivers enhanced performance, with the F-PACE SVR capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds, three-tenths faster than before, and a top speed of 286km/h.

As well as the improved torque and acceleration, CO2 emissions are reduced from 281g/km to 275g/km with fuel economy now down to 12.2l/100km.*

Updated Dynamic Mode features

The transmission and dynamics systems have also benefited from incremental tweaks, says Jaguar SA.

The updated Dynamic mode features unique tuning, delivering a focused and honed driving experience, with a new Dynamic Launch feature using driveline inertia to maintain power to the wheels during gear changes, contributing to the SVR’s sharper acceleration from a standstill.

“At the same time, F-PACE SVR is now more comfortable and enjoyable to drive at a relaxed pace, without compromising its high-speed dynamics, further underlining the new model’s duality of purpose.”

The steering system is enhanced with a new electronic power-assistance framework delivering greater immediacy, providing a heightened connection between the vehicle and driver.

Drivers will also benefit from improved brake feel in the new F-PACE SVR courtesy of a new electric booster system.

“The improved cooling and aerodynamics of the vehicle also improve the performance of the brakes, giving the driver even greater confidence.”

The 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged petrol engine is paired with Jaguar’s ultra-responsive, smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission which delivers rapid gearshifts for effortless performance while adapting the way power is delivered to suit the driving situations, the company says.

Jaguar’s All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics is fitted as standard, while Configurable Dynamics provides enhanced driver appeal by enabling the driver to set up the vehicle to suit their personal preferences.

A stopwatch, G-Meter and pedal graph also help the driver to monitor performance in Dynamic mode.

Redesigned interior

The interior of the new F-PACE SVR is comprehensively redesigned, with materials enhanced to heighten the dynamic character of the revised cabin and its controls. 

Seat and door inserts are finished in Alcantara, with elements such as the central cubby and leather midroll wrapped in luxurious Windsor leather.

The 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display is wrapped in Alcantara with ebony stitching, while aluminium patterned finishers feature as standard with open-pore carbon-fibre available as an option. 

Optional slimline semi-aniline leather sports seats with heritage logo-inspired diamond embroidery across the front shoulder section, feature a unique perforation across the backrest, while the same pattern is used on the leather on the seatbacks.

An embossed SVR logo on the headrests adds a final flourish.

The new F-PACE SVR features all of the advanced technologies ensuring it is always connected and always up-to-date for enhanced driver convenience.

These include intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment, Software-Over-Air capability, Active Road Noise Cancellation and the latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, and optional wireless device charging.

The new Jaguar F-PACE SVR will be launched in South Africa in the first half of 2021 and is available to order now with a starting price of R1,835,700.

All Jaguar vehicles come with a standard 5-year/100,000km Jaguar Care Plan and warranty.
