2021 Jaguar F PACE SVR Makes International Debut
Performance SUVs are proving to be a lucrative segment as manufacturers from around the world merge everyday usability and practicality with supercar levels of acceleration and handling. The new Jaguar F-PACE SVR is now faster and more dynamic than the outgoing model, redefining the pinnacle of the brand’s SUV range.
If you are questioning what separates the new model from the older F-PACE SVR, there is the Electronic Vehicle Architecture – dubbed EVA 2.0 – and includes motorsport-inspired design details, a luxurious and performance-focused interior, and the latest connected technologies.
Michael van der Sande, Managing Director, Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations, said: “The original F-PACE SVR was incredibly 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.”
Available exclusively with the brand’s 5.0-liter V8 Supercharged petrol engine, the new F-PACE SVR is good for 542 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque – a small but worthy increase over the outgoing model. The boost in power means that the performance SUV can now accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.0-seconds and to a top speed of 286 km/h.
When it comes to driving dynamics, in addition to a new steering system, drivers also stand to benefit from improved brake feel with 395mm discs in the front and 396mm discs in the rear. The improved cooling and aerodynamics of the vehicle also improve the performance of the brakes, giving the driver even greater confidence.
Inside, the seat and door inserts are finished in Alcantara, with elements such as the central cubby and other areas wrapped in Windsor leather. The 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display is wrapped in Alcantara with ebony stitching, while aluminum patterned finishers feature as standard with open-pore carbon-fiber available as an option.
