Jaguar’s F-Pace SVR combines style, performance and innovation.
Jaguar’s history of sports cars and fine design make it a go-to choice for car experts, but its SUV range also opens up the automotive manufacturer to a new audience, designed for those looking for functionality as well as the best in design and performance. The F-PACE SVR is now faster than ever with a motorsport-inspired exterior design, a luxurious interior and the latest connected technologies. The F-PACE is the perfect solution for all, combining the best of both worlds for motorheads, businessmen and families alike.
From the outside, the car’s sleek curved design is inspired by the brand’s motorsport experience but offers an elegant appearance that will appeal to all. The new design has been upgraded from the original, with the enhanced airflow and aerodynamic benefits delivered through new apertures and vents for improved powertrain and brake cooling. The changes deliver superior aerodynamic performance including 35 per cent reduced lift and drag reduced from 0.37Cd to 0.36Cd.
Surrounding the new SVR-badged grille, the revised bumper design features an X-shape and blade-like elements intersecting the lower side air vents and intakes. An enlarged lower intake improves airflow, to cool the F-PACE SVR’s 550PS powertrain. While the new-look design delivers performance benefits, it also provides a more athletic appearance by visually lowering the front of the vehicle. New diagonal blades below the lower bumper, shaped in partnership with the SV aerodynamics team, ensure every design detail has a functional purpose, while also helping to visually plant the F-PACE SVR closer to the road.
At the front of the car, the super-slim all-LED quad headlights feature a ‘Double J’ Daytime Running Light (DRL) with the option of Pixel LED technology for increased resolution and brightness. Adaptive Driving Beam capability evaluates the road ahead and automatically adapts the high beam light to mask oncoming traffic or traffic signs. This specialised system can create varying light beam patterns by selecting different LED segments to optimise visibility and minimise the risk of distracting other drivers. New slimline rear lights feature Jaguar’s trademark double chicane graphic which accentuates the width of the vehicle. The new look is completed with the addition of the updated SVR logo.
The F-PACE SVR features large 22-inch forged alloy wheels with a five-spoke design finished in gloss black with satin grey inserts. The new SVR logo is printed on the wheel for a stylish finish.
The sleek interior of the F-PACE SVR features a new refined design with luxurious materials to elevate the appearance and feel. Luxurious leather seats once again combine sports inspirations with and chic design. Seat and door inserts are finished in Alcantara, with elements such as the central cubby and leather midroll wrapped in luxurious Windsor leather. The seats feature heritage logo-inspired diamond embroidery across the front shoulder section, and features 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 touch. The outer rim of the bespoke SVR split-rim steering wheel wears the same leather finish, while the inside of the wheel features a unique Mars Red SVR stitch detail. Tactile zinc-alloy shift paddles provide heightened driver engagement when making manual gear changes.
The 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. The car’s technology system is of the highest standard with a new sporty centre console, incorporating an optional wireless device charger and improved console stowage. This is seamlessly integrated through a centrally-mounted 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen, which sits within an elegant magnesium alloy casing and provides access to the intuitive new Pivi Pro infotainment.
A series of advanced technologies ensure the health and wellbeing of all occupants. Cabin Air Ionisation improves interior air quality through Nanoe technology, which removes allergens and unpleasant odours. The system now also features PM2.5 filtration, which captures ultra-fine particles to improve occupant health and wellbeing. Customers activate the system simply by pressing the ‘Purify’ button within the infotainment.
The F-PACE SVR features Jaguar’s advanced Electronic Vehicle Architecture, with a range of new technologies to ensure this vehicle is ahead of the game with every detail. The latest Pivi Pro infotainment technology is accessed through the all-new 11.4-inch curved glass HD touchscreen, meaning enhanced clarity, a larger and brighter display and a simplified menu structure that allows drivers to access or view up to 90 per cent of common tasks from the homescreen in two taps or less, keeping both safety and simplicity in mind.
The system is also compatible with Apple CarPlay® as standard and allows customers to connect two phones simultaneously via Bluetooth. Optional wireless device charging with phone signal booster allows occupants to fast charge their compatible smartphone – perfect for long journeys. The collection of new convenience technologies includes Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) capability, which ensures the performance SUV is always using the latest software, meaning that the technology automatically updates without the need to visit retailers to receive software updates for the vehicle.
The new F-PACE SVR also benefits from a selection of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. This includes the Clear Exit Monitor, which alerts both front and rear occupants to the presence of an approaching car or cyclist when exiting the vehicle. Adaptive Cruise Control automatically maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front.
Jaguar’s latest 3D Surround Camera technology delivers advanced 3D functionality using the latest camera technology to deliver more detail and a choice of real-time viewing when manoeuvring the vehicle. The selection of settings includes Junction View, 3D Perspective View, and ClearSight Plan View.
The F-PACE SVR is designed exclusively with Jaguar’s 550PS 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged petrol engine. The engine now has a 700Nm torque – an increase of 20Nm which delivers enhanced performance capable of 0-60mph in just 3.8 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds). As well as the improved torque and acceleration, CO2 emissions are also reduced from 281g/km to 275g/km with fuel economy now up to 23.1mpg (12.2l/100km).
The car features Jaguar’s Electronic Vehicle Architecture, which features unique tuning, delivering a focused and honed driving experience, making it easier to handle than before and improving performance. Jaguar SV’s engineers have recalibrated the software to provide sharper throttle response, stiffen the suspension set-up, optimise steering weighting and enhance the exhaust mapping.
A new Dynamic Launch feature also uses 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 system delivering greater immediacy, and providing a heightened connection between the vehicle and the driver. All of the car’s improvements are aimed to combine performance and comfort.
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. Jaguar’s All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics is fitted as standard. The technology has a rear-wheel drive bias for enhanced driver engagement and performance.
In conclusion, the high-performance design is a perfect way of combining the finest in motorsport with luxury, comfort and delivery for all. Now available across the Middle East.
