Australian specs and pricing have been announced for the updated Jaguar F-Pace SVR SUV ahead of a showroom arrival in April 2021.
Priced from $141,040 plus on-road costs, the SVR variant receives the exterior and interior updates that bring it into line with the rest of the MY21 F-Pace range.
Leading the changes is a retuned 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8 engine that now develops 405kW and 700Nm, an increase on 20Nm when compared to the outgoing unit. It’s matched to an eight-speed automatic that sends drive to all four wheels.
The extra torque cuts the 0-100km/h dash to a neat 4.0 seconds on its way to a higher top speed of 286km/h.
Further changes include a tweaked steering set-up that uses a new electronic power-assistance system, retuning of the adaptive damping to improve low-speed comfort and revised chassis bushes.
The 395mm (front) and 396mm (rear) two-piece disc brakes are now supported by a new Integrated Power Booster which, along with a recalibration of the system, delivers a sportier and shorter brake pedal. The brake system also features a new electric booster.
In terms of design, the exterior gets slimmer LED headlights, a revised bonnet, new rear tail-lights and a reworked body-kit which Jaguar says reduces front-end lift by 35 per cent and works to cool the brakes.
On the inside, there are more premium surface coverings including Alcantara and Windsor leather on the seats, doors, and dashboard, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, the brand’s latest steering wheel design and an updated gear shifter.
The updated F-Pace SVR also gets the new Pivi Pro infotainment system displayed on an 11.4-inch touchscreen.
The system is faster thanks to a separate battery, it’s ready to use as soon as it’s switched on.
Software updates are available over-the-air via an embedded data connection. Owners will be able to update maps and add vehicle features without having to visit a dealer.
Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included as standard, two phones can be connected at once: one for phone calls, and another for media.
Like the wider F-Pace range, the SVR comes standard with autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear collision monitor, rear traffic monitor, traffic sign recognition, and adaptive speed limiter.
The updated Jaguar F-Pace SVR is available to order now with deliveries scheduled to commence in April 2021.
