- Upgraded interior

The Jaguar F-Pace SVR is the fastest, most extreme version of the F-Pace SUV. Thanks to a few nips and tucks for 2021, this supercharged V8 alternative to the likes of the BMW X3M and Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 is faster and more high-tech than ever.
2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR design
The new Jaguar F-Pace SVR doesn’t look radically different from the old car. The black front grille is the same as before, but the three huge air intakes in the front bumper get a new light-grey trim that loops around the outer edges and points up towards the number plate. The headlights now have two illuminated flicks each instead of one.
Just like the outgoing SVR, you can get the new model with massive 22-inch alloy wheels. And, the gill-like rear bumper and quad exhaust tips are the same as before, too. The rear brake lights get a new double-kink design with a flat base that’s been carried over from the recently updated Jaguar F-Pace.
2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR engine and driving
The new Jaguar F-Pace SVR gets the same supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine as the old car, and although it produces the same 550hp as before, it’s been tweaked to deliver 20Nm more torque. How does 700Nm sound? There’s also a new launch control function that helps the new SVR crack the 0-60mph sprint 0.3 seconds faster than before, in just 3.8 seconds.
Jaguar has also revised the suspension tuning and fitted the F-Pace SVR with a different steering rack – the aim being to make it feel more agile than before (although the old car was impressively nimble for a tall SUV).
2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR interior and infotainment
The old F-Pace looked fantastic on the outside and was great to drive, but it was let down by a few cheap-feeling interior materials. Jaguar looks to have fixed that with a revamped interior that features plenty of new leather trims, metal details and carbon-fibre inserts.
The old car’s rotary gear selector has gone – now you get a more conventional gear lever design – and the steering wheel gets a new design with new touch-sensitive pads instead of physical buttons.
On the subject of buttons, a new 11.4-inch curved touchscreen does away with most of the physical controls on the dashboard. This is Jaguar’s new Pivi Pro infotainment setup that gets Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and automatic wireless software updates. You also get a second 12.3-inch digital driver’s display instead of analogue dials.
