A NEW look for Jaguar's flagship performance SUV has been revealed with the F-PACE SVR getting more grunt and added equipment.
With a top speed now of 178mph and a 0 to 60 acceleration time of 3.8 seconds the new SVR is priced from £77,595.
Jaguar engineers have added more torque to the car's 550ps 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine and a new launch control which have shaved 0.3 of a second off the acceleration time.
Beefed up brakes and retuning to the suspension are other elements of the new F-PACE SVR while other changes see the introduction of Jaguar's latest Pivi Pro infotainment system with an 11.4-inch curved touchscreen.
The powertrain now features the same torque converter used in the record-breaking Jaguar XE SV Project 8 saloon and as well as the improved torque and acceleration, CO2emissions are also reduced from 281g/km to 275g/km with fuel economy now up to 23.1mpg.
Michael van der Sande, managing director of Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations, said: "The original F-PACE SVR was incredibly characterful, well received by our customers and has gone on to become the highest-selling Jaguar SV product ever.
"The new version builds on this success, by making numerous detailed improvements that combine to raise the bar in the high-performance SUV segment."
The F-PACE SVR is all-wheel-drive and with a bias set up to the rear and the car's software can distribute torque to the front and rear axles independently which Jaguar says provides greater control and stability in low traction conditions.
Inside, the SVR has undergone a major redesign with seat and door trims now finished in Alcantara.
A 12.3-inch driver display is fitted and the start button beside the drive selector now sits alongside a new rotary dial for the car's drive control settings while the centre console now can be fitted with an optional wireless phone charger.
External changes have seen a reduction in drag of 35 per cent and the car has new apertures and vents for improved powertrain and brake cooling.
Vehicle security has been improved and the car has a special Guardian Mode which uses a timer to allow owners to identify times when the vehicle will be inactive, for example through the night, and receive alerts to their smartphone if it is driven during this window - giving immediate warning of unauthorised movements.
The new F-PACE SVR also benefits from a selection of advanced driver assistance systems including a Clear Exit Monitor, which alerts both front and rear occupants to the presence of an approaching car or cyclist when exiting the vehicle.
It is also fitted with Jaguar's latest 3D Surround Camera technology which delivers advanced 3D functionality to deliver more detail and a choice of real-time viewing when manoeuvring the vehicle. The selection of settings include Junction View, 3D Perspective View, and ClearSight Plan View.
