The new Jaguar F-PACE SVR is now “faster, more dynamic and more refined than ever”, as the pinnacle of the performance SUV range is “elevated to another level thanks to the latest enhancements by the Jaguar SV team”.
The updates are delivered by a combination of new hardware and the move to Jaguar’s advanced Electronic Vehicle Architecture – dubbed EVA 2.0 – and include motorsport-inspired design details, a luxurious and performance-focused interior, and the latest connected convenience technologies, according to a press statement issued in Doha by Alfardan Premier Motors Co, the official retailer of Jaguar Land Rover vehicles in Qatar.
Michael van der Sande, the managing director of Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations, said: “The original F-PACE SVR was incredibly characterful, well received by customers and has gone on to become the highest-selling Jaguar SV product ever.
“The new version builds on this success, by making numerous detailed improvements that combine to raise the bar in the high-performance SUV segment.”
The new F-PACE SVR is available exclusively with Jaguar’s 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged petrol engine, which produces 550PS and 700Nm torque – an increase of 20Nm.
This uplift in torque delivers enhanced performance, with the F-PACE SVR capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds (0-100kph in 4.0 seconds), three-tenths faster than before, and a top speed of 178mph (286kph) – an increase of 2mph.
The powertrain now features the same torque converter used in the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 super saloon, to withstand the higher loads produced.
As well as the improved torque and acceleration, CO2 emissions are reduced from 281g/km to 275g/km with fuel economy now up to 23.1mpg (12.2l/100km).
The transmission and dynamics systems have also benefited from incremental tweaks.
The uprated Dynamic mode features unique tuning, delivering a focused and honed driving experience.
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.
The steering system is enhanced with a new electronic power-assistance system delivering greater immediacy, providing a heightened connection between the vehicle and driver.
Modified tuning of the adaptive damping provides a more refined ride at low speeds, which is further improved by revised chassis bushes.
Drivers also benefit from improved brake feel in the new F-PACE SVR.
The 395mm (front) and 396mm (rear) two-piece disc brakes are now supported by a new Integrated Power Booster which, along with a recalibration of the system, delivers a sportier and shorter brake pedal.
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.
Paul Barritt, F-PACE SVR chief programme engineer at Jaguar SV, added: “The move to Jaguar’s new Electrical Vehicle Architecture gave us the opportunity to revisit the calibration of every single component, so we took the chance to fine-tune the driving experience to make it feel even more focused and even more refined.”
“Those thousands of detail changes take the F-PACE SVR to the next level,” he said.
Jaguar’s All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics is fitted as standard.
Adaptive Dynamics suspension technology ensures a precise, dynamic set-up coupled with a supple ride, while Configurable Dynamics provides enhanced driver appeal by enabling the driver to set up the vehicle to suit their personal preferences.
The design of the new F-PACE SVR is inspired by SV’s motorsport experience, with enhanced airflow and aerodynamic benefits delivered through new apertures and vents for improved powertrain and brake cooling.
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 new F-PACE SVR features advanced technologies found in the latest F-PACE, ensuring that it is always connected and always up-to-date for enhanced driver convenience.
These include intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment, Software-Over-Air capability, optional wireless device charging, and the latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.
