Jaguar Unveils the New F-Pace SVR

Jag F-Pace SVR

Jaguar today unveiled the F-Pace SVR, the pinnacle of the brand’s performance SUV range which is capable of doing things that will put even a few supercars to shame.

Powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, the new Jaguar F-Pace SVR now makes 550PS and features a revised torque curve that enables the SUV to produce 700 Nm and hit a top speed of 286 km/h. Despite the bump in power, Jaguar claims that fuel consumption has improved.

In case you’re wondering how quick the F-Pace SVR is, it can sprint from naught to 100km/h in exactly 4.0 seconds, which is three-tenth of a second quicker than before.

Other technical highlights include a new steering rack with SV calibration and retuned dampers that translate to better handling and a more engaging driving experience.

The brakes have also been tweaked with an improved cooling system, a new Integrated Power Booster, as well as retuned pedals.

Jaguar’s All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics is also fitted as standard. The technology has a rear-wheel drive bias for enhanced driver engagement and performance, with predictive and reactive software that can distribute torque to the front and rear axles independently, and almost instantly, to provide greater control and stability in low traction conditions.

The retuned rear Electronic Active Differential delivers enhanced performance and greater confidence when required.

Further complementing the whole package is the Adaptive Dynamics suspension technology which ensures a precise, dynamic set-up coupled with a supple ride. In order to achieve this, the technology constantly analyses acceleration, steering, throttle and brake pedal inputs.

Height sensors at each corner of the vehicle measure the vertical body movement, roll and pitch 100 times a second, while steering inputs are measured 500 times a second. Adaptive Dynamics uses these inputs to continually adjust the damper stiffness to maximise comfort and control.

And then we have the Configurable Dynamics that provides enhanced driver appeal by enabling the driver to set up the vehicle to suit their personal preferences, with a choice of Comfort or Dynamic settings applied to the throttle mapping, gear shift points, steering effort and suspension.

A stopwatch, G-Meter and pedal graph also help the driver to monitor performance in Dynamic mode while Adaptive Dynamics continuously adjusts the dampers for enhanced comfort and refinement depending on road and driving conditions.

The new F-Pace’s chassis now supports the introduction of the latest JaguarDrive Control and new Auto Vehicle Hold function. JaguarDrive Control features Comfort, Eco, Rain-Ice-Snow and Dynamic modes, which can be chosen manually by the driver based on the road conditions.

The settings, selected through a new rotary dial next to the all-new Drive Selector, optimise the F-Pace SVR’s steering, transmission, throttle and (when specified) Adaptive Dynamics settings accordingly.

Auto Vehicle Hold provides added convenience and smoother operation than conventional Automatic Hill Hold. The new technology holds the brakes for an unlimited period of time when stationary on a gradient, only releasing the brakes when the driver depresses the accelerator to drive away.

On the exterior, the Jaguar F-Pace SVR features a tweaked front end which offers reduced lift and also less drag. Plus, it also makes the F-Pace SVR look much fiercer than the regular F-Pace.

Inside, the cabin features a generous dose of performance-oriented components that offer a luxurious, yet sporty feel for the driver and occupants.

Taking care of infotainment is Jaguar’s latest Pivi Pro dual-sim infotainment system which is accessed through an all-new 11.4-inch HD curved glass touchscreen. The system also cmes with Software-Over-The-Air capability which ensures that the latest vehicle systems and infotainment are installed seamlessly and remotely.

Limited Edition Jaguar F-Pace 2.0L Launched – 20 Units, From RM436k

The limited edition F-Pace, Jaguar’s best-selling performance SUV, has been introduced into the Malaysian market with a new 2.0-litre, turbocharged 300PS Ingenium petrol engine.

The F-Pace now comes with a new engine that is by far Jaguar’s most powerful 2.0-litre Ingenium Petrol engine in production, kicking out 300PS and 400Nm of torque, and enabling the SUV to do the century sprint in 6.1 seconds while hitting 233km/h of top speed. Paired to the engine is the ZF 8HP45 eight-speed automatic transmission.

A sweetener for the F-Pace impressive features is the state-of-the-art pendulum damper in the torque converter that is extremely effective at absorbing low frequency vibrations. This enables the engine to run at lower speeds without compromising refinement.

The powered-up F-Pace is also equipped with Configurable and Adaptive Dynamics. The Configurable Dynamics which is standard on the R-Sport variant, allows drivers to choose Normal or Sports settings for the throttle response, gearbox and steering, thus creating a very personalised driving experience.

The Adaptive Dynamics on the other hand, modifies the damper response to match the different conditions and driving style. It analyses acceleration, cornering, throttle and brake pedal activity to optimise the suspension settings and maintain the car’s dynamism and comfort. Adaptive Dynamics is available in the highest specifications only.

With only 20 units available for sale, this limited edition Jaguar F-Pace is feature-packed with a range of systems that enhance one’s driving experience, which include the Gesture tailgate, 10-inch Touch Pro, Pro Services and Wi-Fi Hotspot, Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Monitor.

In addition, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone integration also come as standard for all three variants.   

The Prestige variant, which is the entry-level version, offers enhanced exterior and other convenient features including a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, a 20-inch 5 split-spoke ‘Style 5031’ with Grey Diamond Turned finish alloy wheel, as well as the Rear Seat Remote Release Levers and Power Reclining Rear Seat – all of which add to the vehicle’s unique appeal.

Additional features available in the R-Sport (Mid-Spec) variant include the Adaptive LED Headlamps and Signature Daytime Running Lights (DRL), Auto High Beam Assist (AHBA), Ambient Interior Lighting and Gloss Black Roof Rails.

Exclusively in the F-Pace R-Sport (Hi-Spec) is the Adaptive Surface Response (AdsR), which recognises differences between surfaces to exploit available grip by adjusting engine and brake settings.

The AdSR operates throughout the vehicle’s entire speed range and enables finer optimisation of the vehicle’s systems to make the most of the available traction, helping the driver make smooth progress even in the most challenging road conditions.  The R-Sport (Hi-Spec) also comes with 22-inch wheels that will enhance the powerful wheel-to-body ratio of the F-PACE.

Three variants are offered:

  • Jaguar F-Pace Prestige – RM436,420
  • Jaguar F-Pace R-Sport (Mid-Spec) – RM470,212
  • Jaguar F-Pace R-Sport (Hi-Spec) – RM485,433

All Jaguar vehicles distributed by authorised dealers also come with a ‘Jaguar Care’ programme which includes a five-year warranty, five years’ free service and three years’ roadside assistance.
