2019 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Engine

The heart of any performance Jaguar is its engine, and despite being the largest Jag the automaker's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) team has yet worked on, the new F-Pace SVR is no different-Motortrend.com

The engine is the heart of any car and the F-Pace SVR has a pretty big heart to say the least. The SVO team of Jaguar say that this is the biggest displacement engine that they have worked on till date in terms of performance and they have fine-tuned it, to suit the F-Pace SVR well. The F-Pace SVR delivers 170hp more than the top of the line F-Pace S and shares its powertrain with the new Range Rover Sport SVR.

Putting all this power to the 4 wheels is done by a superb 8 speed automatic transmission that is coupled to Jaguar’s sophisticated torque vectoring system and an electronic differential at the rear. Shifts are smooth and uncomplicated and are mostly proactive that adds to the drivability of this big SUV.

Acceleration

The Big Supercharged V8 Motor of the 2019 Jaguar F-Type SVR, does boast of pretty impressive power figures and couple that, to the witchcraft of the SVO team from Jaguar and you have a properly quick SUV on your hands. The F-Pace SVR, as claimed by Jaguar can do the dash to 60MPH from standstill in an insane 4.1 seconds thanks to the Torque Vectoring involved and the limited slip differential in the rear.

In terms of the competition, it’s the Alfa Rome Stelvio that rakes in the best figures for the acceleration tests while the relatively underpowered Range Rover Sport Dynamic comes in as the “Slowest” of the lot. The Porsche Macan and the Jaguar are on the same page in terms of performance but the Porsche has the weight advantage on its back.

Ride and Handling

The SVO team of Jaguar, didn’t just add a big engine to the F-Pace SVR and sent it to the showrooms. They made a lot of changes to the Exteriors and the Chassis of the Standard F-Pace and then dished it out to the people.

The F-Pace SVR gets a new Front and Rear Fascia when compared to the standard F-Pace along with a new spoiler that reduces lift, improves aerodynamics and lowers drag. Combine all these with a stiffened up chassis, front and rear springs and a suspension and you have an SUV that can tame the corners, nearly as well as a sport sedan.

The Electric Power Steering gets a revision as well, to suit the performance and aid the handling of the F-Pace SVR. The Big 15.5” Tires on the Front and Rear are bigger and lower in weight when compared to the standard F-Pace and give stupendous grip to the SVR, at times of hard cornering and maintaining grip at high speeds.

On the downside of all these upgrades is the ride quality. Make the F-Pace SVR, glide over speed humps and passengers inside the SVR will feel every inch of the speed bump. The same goes when taking the SVR through potholes or over the cracked portions of the road, where the ride may get a bit unsettling at times.

Braking

Jaguar has not compromised on the brake rotors of the SVR and has slotted big 15.5” Rotors on the front and the rear. The Brake Pedal feel is assuring and doesn’t feel unnerving or stiff and responds to inputs with ease. With a 121ft stopping distance from 60mph, the F-Pace SVR fares much better than the standard F-pace and matches the competition on the same front.

In terms of the competition, the F-Pace SVR is bettered only by the Alfa and the Porsche. Both these cars have a significant weight advantage over the Jag while the Range rover Sport lags behind the rest because of the higher weight.

Towing Capacity

The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR, keeps both performance and practicality at par and the towing capacity of the SVR is a testimony to the same fact. The 5291lbs. towing capacity is the highest in terms of the other performance SUV’s while the Range Rover Sport beats the Jaguar by a big margin.

2019 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Fuel Economy

Most Jaguar owners won’t make their buying decision by looking at this segment and the SVR didn’t intend to ace this segment. But with some clever use of aluminum and other weight reduction measures, the 2019 F-Pace SVR stands with its head high against the competition in terms of MPG figures. The SVR delivers an average of 18MPG and with a massive 21.7-gallon fuel tank, provides the 2nd best range in this comparison today.

Ergonomics and Comfort

While the F-Pace SVR may not be as comfortable as the standard F-Pace, Jaguar has ensures that the F-Pace SVR doesn’t eliminate the kind of comfort, one generally associates Jaguar with. The front seats are power adjustable and offer good comfort for a sporty SUV. The rear seats have been reclined at a thoughtful angle that provides immense comfort to passengers inside at all times. The heating and ventilation functions work well in all conditions as well.

The low slung stance of the F-Pace SVR, makes it a tad uncomfortable for taller passengers to get in and out. This also tends to make the interiors feel smaller than they actually are. The windshields and the windows, however, are big enough, to provide a decent view of what is outside and hence reduce the otherwise average-sized feeling interior.

Cargo Capacity

One area, where the F-Pace SVR is hands down better than all of its rivals is in terms of the cargo space. With a massive 33.5 cu. ft. of cargo space on offer, the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR offers the biggest cargo space in the range of the performance SUV’s that the Jag competes against.

2019 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Competition

Jaguar F-Pace SVR vs Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, brings with itself a rich legacy of racing and performance and Alfa engineers have ensured that the Stelvio doesn’t lack any of it. The Stelvio packs in a lot of performance and is an absolute pleasure to drive, both on the cities and the track. The F-Pace SVR may not be as sporty or exhilarating to drive as the Alfa but can surely be a close competitor to it. The Jag is also the cheaper of the two and comes with higher performance figures as well. So, if you are looking for a practical but sporty SUV, the F-Pace SVR will edge out the Alfa by a very small margin.

Jaguar F-Pace SVR vs Porsche Macan

The Porsche Macan comes out as one of the most holistic rivals to the Jaguar F-Pace SV. The Macan is fast, well built, has a well-built interior and the pedigree of Porsche behind its back. The Jaguar may not have the exact pedigree of the Porsche but still manages to offer similar performance and thrills like the Porsche. The Jaguar is also priced significantly lesser than the Porsche and couples a lot of kit with it.

Jaguar F-Pace SVR vs Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged

The Range Rover Sport Supercharged doesn’t exactly qualify as the direct rival to the F-Pace SVR as the Sport SVR is the one which is the rival. But in terms of ricing, it’s the RR Sport that comes the closest. The Range Rover Sport offers you all the luxuries and off road capabilities that you expect from a Range Rover. The F-Pace SVR on the other hand doesn’t match the Sport on the same terms but impresses with its ultra-powerful motor, superb handling and a great cargo space.

2019 Jaguar F-PACE SVR SUV Final Verdict

Jaguar has put up a commendable effort in dishing out a proper sporty SUV in the form of the 2019 F-Pace SVR. The F-Pace SVR may sure not be as sporty to ride as the Alfa Stelvio or as well built as the Jaguar or as comfortable as the range Rover Sport but in terms of what it offers, owners won’t be disappointed with what they have.

The 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR is the most powerful of the lot, packs in the biggest cargo space and has a tech laden interior. Leave aside the ride quality of the Jag over the bumps and you will be surprised with how much, the F-Pace SVR offers. So, if you want a performance laden SUV that can carry stuff for weekend drives or long holidays, give you an enthralling experience while sitting inside it and make eyes follow when you ride it, then there is no better SUV than the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR for it.
