Refined with elevated comfort and convenience features, the Jaguar F-Pace SVR is a SUV with the heart of a sports car that is ready to take your family wherever your desires or life wishes to go.
Jaguar makes sports cars and beautifully, time-tested sedans that feel, for lack of a better term, special. Known for their speed, modern technology, undisputed quality, distinctive look and restrained luxury, Jaguar has created a brand that draws followers and maintains loyal customers. Basing at $79K and as shown at just over $90K, The 2019 F-Pace SVR is bridges the gap between a sport instrument and an everyday driver. With a 5.0L Supercharged 8 cylinder gas engine and all wheel drive, this 5 seater is a welcome roster addition.
And for good reason, one look and you know it’s a Jaguar and one drive and you understand why. The attention to detail and commitment to quality are exciting. When I heard that this one was coming in, I knew just where we would go. I took it to one of my favorite places in Dallas, White Rock Lake.
I always come here when I need a bit of space, solace and sanctuary or when life gets heavy, and I need to recharge. The sound of the water, the scent of the air rustling through the trees, the expanse of green space and the general openness of White Rock makes my heart happy. Which is exactly what I needed the week this one came in.
Integrates Into Life
While I was out shooting pictures for this story, my dad had a health scare and was rushed by ambulance to a near by City Lake Hospital, which happened to be moments away from the Lake. Heart pounding and mind leaping to all sorts of conclusions, I got directions from my sister. Put them directly into the navigation system that I had just finished snapping pictures of. The screen was big, around 10 inches, and the app picked up easily.
It was simple and intuitive. The F-Pace quickly gave me the fastest route to get there and warned me of occurrences on the road on the way. The heads-up display was not distracting and simply provided the pertinent information without interfering with my view. Unexpectedly, I had a the chance to test out the speed settings and drive modes, which allowed the car to easily adapt to gravel, slippery roads that went uphill and to regular driving conditions. The gear paddles on either side of the steering wheel allow you to shift and up and down with flick of your fingertips. Beautifully responsive, the F-Pace SVR handled well on the curvy, construction laden roads of East Dallas. The tires gripped the road well, upgraded braking and the driver assist package with lane-keep assist were thankful additions.
I made it there before the ambulance and thank goodness for faith and support structures to help you calm your brain when it is running at a break neck pace. Gratefully, it was merely the start of pneumonia paired with complications of blood pressure medication. He spent a few days there getting tests ran, waiting for results and then a bit of time adjusting and stabilizing his medication routine. After those were complete, he was allowed to go home.
On the inside
I loved that the interior is just as well done as the exterior. The F-Pace SVR wears it’s sporty heart on its sleeve. All of the interior seats are appointed with quilted, Windsor leather and detailed with sharp, white contrast stitching. The front row seats are designed for performance, bucketed and memory mold to the body like a sports car with lumbar support. Heated and cooled front and rear seats are an absolute boon in Dallas where the weather is fickle and changes at a moment. From power fold seats, adjustable ambient lighting to a panoramic moon roof that lets in light and opens up the interior space and the super convenient Wi-Fi hotspot that made my kids day, it’s the details that elevate this SUV from nice to great.
Upgraded from last year’s model, the 2019 F-Pace SVR has an updated, optional driver assistance package. With real space in the back seat, enough for my kids, their backpacks and still room to move around. It feels spacious and sporty, but still luxuriously functional — which I love. The driver assistance package includes blind spot assistance, 360 degree surround cameras with a rear traffic monitor that is a huge bonus with the increasing traffic in Dallas.
