Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Given that the SVR is the range-topping V8 model, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that it’s the most expensive Jaguar F-Pace you can buy. It costs tens of thousands of pounds more than some of the more sensible versions.

You get loads of equipment, though, including leather seats, dual-zone climate control and LED headlights. The asking price is considerably less than that of the Mercedes GLC 63 AMG but slightly more than Alfa Romeo charges for the Stelvio Quadrifoglio

Overview

Strikes a sweet balance between ride comfort and handling finesse, and that V8 engine sounds spectacular. The Alfa Stelvio Quadrifoglio is faster and will go round corners quicker, but it’s no more rewarding to drive and the SVR wins for practicality.

  • Ferocious pace
  • Glorious V8 soundtrack
  • Surprisingly practical
  • Interior quality is much improved, but not class leading
  • Still lots of road noise
  • Costly to run
