Everyone seems to be interested in this 2020 Jaguar F-PACE SVR. Maybe it’s our test car's Ultra Blue paint, which seems to glow from within. Maybe it’s the growl of its supercharged V8 engine. Maybe it’s the SUV's muscular stance on its massive 22-inch alloy wheels. Whatever it is, my neighbors and fellow Los Angelinos can’t seem to get enough of it. They all want a ride.
Jaguar introduced the F-Pace back in 2017, finally offering an SUV like its Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Lexus rivals. With its unique blend of style, luxury, and performance, the compact luxury suv accumulated many prestigious awards and quickly became the luxury automaker’s best-selling model. Now Jag is offering the F-Pace SVR, a high-performance mutation of the SUV for driving enthusiasts who want to take their families along for the ride. Built in the UK, it competes with other European hot-rod SUVs including the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, BMW X5 M50i, Porsche Cayenne S, and AMG versions of the Mercedes-Benz GLE.
