The interior layout, fit and finish

The biggest difference here between the regular F-Pace and this range-topping SVR model is the presence of sports seats in the front. They hold you in place really well around corners and are comfortable on longer journeys.

They have 14-way electric adjustment, making it easy to find a comfortable driving position. The fact that you sit higher up than in some rivals, including the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, is something SUV fans will appreciate. If you prefer to be closer to the road, you’d be better off looking at a performance saloon.

The F-Pace is relatively easy to see out of and standard parking aids include front and rear sensors, along with a 360deg bird’s eye view camera that feeds to the display on the central 11.4in touchscreen.

While we’re on the touchscreen, the revised F-Pace features the new Pivi Pro infotainment system that at last brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring to the SVR. It’s light years ahead of the old system because it responds swiftly to inputs and has an easily customisable home screen.

Ultimately, a touchscreen is trickier to use on the move. That’s when the Stelvio’s dial comes into its own, although the Alfa’s screen is far smaller and has a more complicated menu layout than the SVR’s.

Interior quality has taken a big step forward with this latest refresh too – there are soft-touch plastics and surfaces you touch regularly have leather and vinyl coverings. It’s more impressive than the Stelvio but the Mercedes GLC is classier and the Porsche Macan is in a different league altogether for plushness.
