Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

The revised Jaguar F-Pace SVR doesn’t produce any more power than its predecessor, but tweaks to the eight-speed automatic and a touch more torque give it faster acceleration.

Now, 0-62mph takes just 4.0 seconds, only slightly longer than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio and Mercedes GLC 63 AMG. The glorious V8 bellow the SVR makes when doing so is intoxicating, especially when you switch the sports exhaust to its loudest setting. The noise doesn’t abate when you lift off the accelerator pedal – you get angry pops and crackles from the exhausts.
