Jaguar F-Pace Review

Jaguar engineers from SVO or Special Vehicle Operations do their job well because the undercarriage can easily handle the excellent drive power.

Engine Performance and Technology


JLR didn't play around because its SVO division designed a high jump for the performance of the SVR F-Pace engine by 44 percent. The supercharged 8.0-liter V8 engine from the F-Type SVR stores 550 hp of power and 502 lb-ft of torque where everything will be channeled via an 8-speed automatic transmission. The result is excellent acceleration, speed from 0-100 km / h in just 4.3 seconds.

With fast acceleration, the F-Pace SVR can reach a peak speed of 283 km/hour. Of course, to run that fast they changed the body of the Jaguar F-Pace SVR to improve aerodynamics. One of the changes is ventilation on each fender to reduce the air pressure and improve the cooling system. Thus the stability of the car becomes more optimal.

But what's even more impressive is that Jaguar isn't just fast ahead. Despite its size and weight, F-Pace is surprisingly light, even on winding roads. It seems like what this SUV can do is always impressive.

F-Pace SVR has a lot of the latest technology for various conditions, this car being the first to implement Jaguar's EAD or Rear Electronic Active Differential.

EAD functions even more optimally with the All-Wheel Drive Torque on-demand system and the latest Intelligent Driveline Dynamic (IDD) control technology.

Meanwhile, SVR specifically obtained software to manage Electronic Power Assisted Steering or EPAS, Adaptive Dynamic Suspension, and a Dynamic Driving Mode.

By activating the Dynamic driving mode, the gearshift will be smoother and faster, the gas pedal input is more responsive, and the steering control is sharper in all conditions.

After the changeover to the Euro 6d-Temp emissions standard, the F-Pace 30t AWD with a 2.0-liter turbo petrol powerhouse has been the highest type in the series. It also separated 250 HP from the new one. Like the lower variants, the F-Pace SVR is exclusively available with an 8-speed automatic. It comes from ZF and also changes gears very quietly in dynamic mode.

The disturbing dial to perform the automatic transmission, which Jaguar relied on for some years, has gone. Now, the brand-new Jaguar F-Pace SVR comes with a classic lever. Unmistakably Jaguar welcomes client input. The auto trans has a manual shift mode.

In this case, the transmission further accepts a request to shift gears through two rockers behind the steering wheel.

Body Design

Also, the SVR aerodynamic package gives a more muscular body kit look with broader air intakes on the front fascia. The uniqueness can also be seen on the side skirts and rear bumper, all for the sake of maximizing airflow, such as the diffuser-style accent at the bottom of the rear bumper. The F-Pace is a harmonious and pretty vehicle as a competitive athlete. After all, the SUV is 4.73 meters long and almost 1.94 wide.

The designers managed to hide the size of the F-Pace SVR through its shape. It was clear when comparing the British concept with its competitors like Alfa Romeo Stelvio, who looked awkward and fat.

Also, the F-Pace SVR has a Variable Valve Active Exhaust System to form a charismatic sound. Besides being 6.6 kg lighter than the standard F-Pace exhaust, this system is also another factor behind the improved performance when activated because of the exhaust gas flow increases.

Interior and Features


A complete infotainment system makes Jaguar more expensive, even in the top models of this series. Some driver assistance systems, some of which are standard in other brands, and there are also additional costs.

The package comes with a high-speed emergency brake assistant, blind spot assistant, and adaptive speed control (ACC), and the steering assistant is on the Jaguar price list at $3,536.

Wheels


From the side, you will see 21-inch alloy wheels (22 inches as an option). For driving comfort, this car has a 30% stiffer suspension in the front and 10% in the rear with anti-roll bars that reduce body roll by 5%. For safety driving, this car has large diameter brake discs with two-piece construction. However, its weight is lighter, so it does not reduce the agility of the F-Pace SVR when maneuvering.

The F-Pace SVR stands on 265/45 R21 tires on the front axle. The developers decided to use tires that are slightly wider in the 295/40 R21 profile on the rear axle.

The combination of the tires is part of the chassis modification to tame the engine power. However, the V8 with a double compressor has left the V6 from the F-Pace S, which is no longer available with 170 hp power.

Price


The list of British carmakers' costs is a surprise because the F-Pace SVR starts at $80,600 with seven color choices. However, if you want your SVR is one of the 18 special SVO paints offered, you can pay extra up to $8,808.

Not only that, for new varnish "Satin Matte Finish," you must pay $3,670 extra.

Maybe you will be focused on the black rims. But if you want to drive 22-inch rims on your Jaguar F-Pace SVR, you have to spend an extra $2,022 from your pocket. Without premium rims, you will only get 21-inch rims.
