Jaguar had faced flak for introducing an SUV in their lineup when there was Land Rover already taking care of that section of the audience. Years later, the F-Pace is Jaguar’s best seller today by a huge margin and hence it was obvious that their Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division would get their hands on it. The F-Pace SVR not only retains the practicality of a compact luxury SUV, but it also manages to be a stellar performer that can handle corners and high-speed turns like a sports sedan.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


The cabin feels premium and is loaded with plenty of creature comforts and technology and for the 2021 model year, Jaguar has decided to make a few tweaks to its design of the Jaguar F-Pace. The front and rear ends both have been redesigned along with a completely refreshed cabin. The infotainment system too is now larger and gets the updated interface. Priced at an MSRP of $85,950, the 2021 F-Pace faces competition from the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, BMW X5 M50i, Mercedes-AMG GLC 63, and the Porsche Macan Turbo in the performance-oriented compact luxury SUV segment. 

2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Features

The F-Pace SVR acts as the top-of-the-line variant in the F-Pace lineup and hence features almost all the possible features and creature comforts that Jaguar could fit in their luxury SUV. Apart from the extensive list of safety features and driver aids, the F-Pace also gets premium leather upholstery, powered sport front seats with heating and cooling functions, satellite radio, a premium Meridian audio system, and the updated infotainment system.

There are also various packages that the buyers can choose from to better spec their cars to better cater to their personal tastes and needs. Like the $2,110 Cold Climate Pack that gets you a heated windscreen and heated steering wheel along with the heated rear seat and four-zone climate control to ensure utmost comfort even in the harshest of weather conditions.

2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Engine and Performance

With rapid electrification, if there are a few engines that need to be preserved, this supercharged Jaguar engine definitely has to be one of them. The 5-liter supercharged V8 generates a thumping 550 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque which is sent to all four wheels as standard through a slick eight-speed automatic transmission. The quad-exhaust setup emits a thunderous exhaust note that will make you an automotive enthusiast even if you aren’t one.

With the new launch control system in place, the 2021 F-Pace SVR manages to do the 0-60 mph run in just 3.8 seconds and leaves many sports coupes behind biting the dust. It crosses the chequered flag at the end of the quarter-mile in just over 12 seconds while top speed is limited to 178 mph. That being said, it does not lose out on the practicality of a crossover SUV as it is rated to tow 5,291 lbs as standard which is enough to tow a medium-sized yacht for the weekend.

At this price point, the Jaguar F-Pace SVR has the highest engine output in its segment and while the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio has a much lower power and torque output, it is about half a second quicker off the mark. The Macan Turbo too has a considerably lower engine output and yet is three-tenth of a second quicker to 60 mph. The BMW on the other hand is slower in the acceleration tests and also has a much lower top speed. 

How does the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR SUV handle?

The dynamics of the F-Pace SVR are dependent on the different driving modes offered in the car. In the normal setting, the ride is smooth, steering is light and the shifts are subtle with a rather throttle response. Shift to Dynamic mode and suddenly the ride stiffens up, the steering now gets the much-needed heft, the gear shifts are now aggressive and the performance is enhanced with the engine roaring through its melodious exhaust note. 

There is also an Eco mode for when you need to save some fuel while there is also a customized drive mode that lets you select every aspect as per your taste. We would recommend putting everything in dynamic except for the suspension and enjoy the surprisingly supple ride quality which hardly any performance-oriented SUV offers in this range. The AWD system is RWD biased, unlike many rivals, and will stay that way unless it is absolutely needed and hence one can kick out the rear end just enough to have fun before the system kicks in. 

2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR Braking Performance

The Jaguar F-Pace SVR feels really comfortable to drive as a daily commuter and does not feel intimidating at all. One of the reasons behind that is a strong yet progressive braking system. Although the braking distance of 116 feet in a 60-0 mph panic braking test isn’t the best in this segment, the pedal feels pretty good and there is no sudden bite to the 15.6-inch front and rear Brembo brakes.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is again the star performer here despite its smaller brake rotors, majorly due to its low curb weight. The Porsche Macan Turbo gets pretty large front and rear disc brakes as well and is also lighter than the Jaguar, yet it takes a couple of feet more than the Stelvio to come to a complete halt. The X5 M50i on the other hand is the heaviest of the lot and yet it has a stopping distance that is much shorter than that of the SVR. 

2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Fuel Economy

The high-performance sweet-sounding supercharged V8 that hauls this over 4,500 lbs SUV to breathtakingly quick speeds at a moment’s notice, was never meant to be the most frugal one out there. Therefore, the EPA ratings of 22 mpg on the motorways and 18 mpg for combined city and highway driving aren’t that bad for the F-Pace SVR. The large 21.7-gallon fuel tank aids in offering a pretty decent driving range of well over 350 miles on a single tank of gas.

The BMW X5 M50i manages to just match the fuel economy ratings of the F-Pace SVR with only the difference between the two being in the marginally better city fuel efficiency of the X5. The Alfa Romeo and the Porsche on the contrary do slightly better in every regard and have identical fuel efficiency ratings. The smaller gas tank capacity of the Stelvio hampers its driving range to a huge extent. 

2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Interior

The interior of the F-Pace lagged behind a bit in terms of its available technologies and with the 2021 refresh, Jaguar seems to have addressed this issue. The new screen now sits very well at the center of the dashboard and it's a respite to see that the climate control and drive mode settings are still kept separate near the gear shifter and not incorporated into the infotainment system. 

The interior is completely new apart from the standard bucket seats and many of the cabin function controls have eventually made it to the large infotainment screen. The SVR gets several interior highlights which include a unique steering wheel, bright metal pedals, zinc-alloy paddle shifters, unique metal tread plates, and SVR badged carpets. Overall, the ambiance is pretty luxurious with a decent build quality that incorporates a lot of creature comforts. 

In terms of cabin space, there is no shortage of space at both the front and back of this cabin. The front seat is a bit tight in terms of headroom but ample legroom will ensure even the taller drivers will find their perfect seating position comfortably with the wide range of adjustments available. The rear seat is pretty spacious as well while the 31.5 cu-ft of trunk space is also of the best, which can further be extended to roughly 70 cu-ft by folding down the rear seat.

The BMW X5 offers a pretty similar cabin space as that of the F-Pace but on the upside, also offers superior headroom and marginally larger trunk space. The Porsche Macan and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio both offer pretty much the same passenger space which is much tighter than the Jaguar. The cargo capacity too is pretty low for both the Italian and German models, though the Macan offers an innumerable range of customization options which is unparalleled. Some of the interior features in the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR are:

  • 14-way power front seats with memory function
  • Heated & Cooled Front Performance Seats
  • 40-20-40 Folding Bench Heated Fold Forward Rear Seat
  • LuxTec Leatherette Seat Upholstery
  • LuxTec Leatherette Upholstered Dashboard and Door Trim Insert
  • Simulated Suede Headliner
  • Power Tilt/Telescoping Steering Column with Auto Tilt-Away Sport Heated Leather Steering Wheel
  • Dual Zone Front Automatic Air Conditioning
  • Memory Settings for Driver And Passenger Seats, Door Mirrors, and Steering Wheel

What’s there to keep you entertained?

As opposed to the outdated system before, the new Pivi Pro touchscreen interface from Jaguar with its sharp 11.4-inch screen is years ahead in terms of utility. It has a snappy response and a sharp & quick interface which includes plenty of technology. These include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD radio and satellite radio, mobile hotspot, integrated navigation system with real-time traffic updates.

A 380-Watt Meridian audio system is offered as a standard which can be replaced for a fifteen-speaker Meridian surround sound system for just $800 which the audiophiles will thoroughly enjoy. The SVR also features the 12.3-inch interactive driver digital instrument display as standard which shows all the necessary parameters of the car right under the driver’s eye. Additionally, a head-up display will set you back by $1,010 but will add more convenience to the driver. Some of the infotainment features in the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR are:

  • 11.4-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen infotainment system
  • 11-speaker 380W Meridian Sound System with dual-channel subwoofer
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible
  • HD Radio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio
  • InControl Navigation Pro Integrated Navigation System with Voice Activation
  • Real-Time Traffic Display
  • InControl Protect Tracker System
  • 4G Mobile Wi-Fi hotspot with Full-Service Internet Access Data Plan 
  • Bluetooth phone connectivity and audio streaming
  • Wireless device charging with phone signal booster

2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Exterior

The exterior design is something that would have made the Jaguar designers feel both confident and anxious at the same time. After receiving several accolades from organizations across the globe, they have managed to keep up with their high standards even with a refresh. The F-Pace doesn’t look anywhere close to the seven years old and the slimmer LED headlights & taillights and the grey colored grille and wheel surrounds help the car look even fresher than before. The SVR features large grilles and air vents, SVR badges, red brake calipers, and true quad-exhaust pipes. A panoramic sunroof is standard with the 21-inch alloys and option for a couple of 22-inch sets.

In terms of exterior dimensions, the Jaguar is marginally longer than all but the X5 and is also the widest of all the SUVs in this comparison. Therefore, it seems great that Jaguar engineers have managed to keep the curb weight in check in spite of the large V8 under its hood. It also offers the highest ground clearance which is similar to the X5, while the Porsche has the lowest ride height amongst the SUVs present here. Some of the exterior features in the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR are:

  • Automatic Projector Beam LED Lowith High Beam, Daytime Running, Auto High-Beam Headlamps with Headlamp Washer
  • LED Brakelights
  • Power Liftgate Lip Spoiler
  • Rain Detecting Variable Intermittent Wipers
  • Power Heated Side Mirrors with Driver Auto Dimming, Power Folding, and Turn Signal Indicator
  • Black Grille with Metal-Look Surround and Black Side Windows Trim
  • Body-Color Bodyside Cladding and Rocker Panel Extensions
  • Express Open/Close Sliding And Tilting Glass Panoramic Sunroof with Power Sunshade
  • 21-inch 5 Split-Spoke Forged Aluminium Satin Grey Wheels with contrast diamond finish

2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Safety

Neither the SVR nor the base F-Pace has been crash-tested by either of the government and private safety testing agencies, probably due to the high value and low demand nature of the F-Pace. That being said, safety should not really be a concern for the SVR buyers as all the modern active and passive safety systems along with the driver assistance features make their way to the F-Pace, most of which are standard. A highlight of the most prominent safety functions offered as standard with the 2021 F-Pace SVR has been listed below. Some of the safety features in the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR are:

  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) Electronic Stability Control (ESC) And Roll Stability Control (RSC)
  • Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR) ABS
  • Front Collision Mitigation
  • Emergency Braking and Rear Traffic Monitor
  • Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Driver Monitoring Alert
  • Front And Rear Parking Sensors
  • 3D 360-degree View Surround Camera with Aerial View Camera
  • Remote SOS Emergency Call

2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Competition

2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR SUV vs Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio 

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is undoubtedly a beast when it comes to outright performance in this segment. Though the F-Pace is a bit slower to 60 mph, it is much more comfortable for the daily commute, offers a spacious cabin for both the passengers and their luggage and also comes with a host of standard safety features and technology. Both the SUVs are also amongst the most stylish ones in the market, but it is the F-Pace SVR that feels like a more practical option considering the low reliability of the Alfa Romeo brand.

2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR SUV vs BMW X5 M50i

The BMW X5 M50i may not be as quick as the Jaguar, but it offers a superior towing capacity and a lot more aggressive ride and handling. That being said, the large dimensions of the X5 does not translate to its cabin space and it too feels too stiff for a daily drive, as opposed to the F-Pace that can cater to both the needs much better. BMW is a more reliable brand and that is a big plus, but if sheer performance is considered, the SVR takes the cake.

2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR SUV vs Porsche Macan Turbo

If style, performance, and handling are the traits that you are looking for, then the Porsche Macan is the first name that might probably pop into your head in the luxury SUV segment. With its tiny twin-turbo V6 engine, the Macan Turbo outshines the SVR and yet manages to be marginally better at fuel efficiency. The F-Pace on the other hand has a much more spacious cabin which is loaded with plenty of features, while the Macan offers a lot of functionality as an option. If customization is your gameplay and budget isn’t really a concern, then the Macan Turbo makes for a better option amongst the two. 

2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Final Verdict

There is no doubt that the Jaguar F-Pace is a stunner to look at. With the new redesign, the SUV now looks sleeker and cleaner both inside and out. The acceleration performance and ride & handling of the SVR is amongst the best, while the cabin is spacious enough to comfortably seat the entire family with their weekend’s worth of luggage. With plenty of standard features and technology making their way at a competitive price tag, the new Jaguar F-Pace SVR does seem like the best all-rounder at this price point.
