Crossovers are incredibly popular and quite affordable these days. Still, there are some pretty big differences among models and categories, so you may get a headache while you are looking for a right choice. However, if you fish for the high-performance SUVs, we might have one good advice: Just wait for a year and you will be able to buy one brilliant Jag’s vehicle. According to reports, the manufacturer is working on the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR that will hit the markets in early 2017.
2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR: Styling and Tech
The high-performance F-Pace SUV promises to have some pretty amazing characteristics. The crossover will be based on the regular model, except it will be a way more potent and a little bit aggressive. The producer made the F-Pace crossover really interesting and pretty handsome, so we are not so sure whether it is possible to make it more attractive. Still, the exterior styling could feature more sporty spirit, so the front end might get an aggressive bumper, which would be larger and will have larger intakes. The SUV will sport redesigned hood and more chrome details, while the headlight styling won’t change at all. In addition, the range-topping model could also have a larger fenders and lowered ground clearance. Jag never makes the mistake with the interior design, and they will definitely continue with high standards inside of the 2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR SUV. We expect to see sport seats with heating, as well as leather upholstery and panoramic roof. Tech department will provide plenty of useful features starting from InControl system that include Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, smartphone app support, as well as quite large touchscreen.
Incredibly Powerful and Expensive
The 2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR will use the same aluminum-intensive iQ platform like the regular model. However, the high-performance model will add several useful features like the adaptive suspension with special calibration for cornering. In contrast to the regular version that uses just 2.0-iter and 3.0-liter options, the top-trim SVR version needs something more powerful. We think that the charming crossover must drive a 5.0-liter engine, which will develop around 542 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. The amazing drivetrain will be matted to the AWD and eight-speed automatic transmission, and will speed up to 60 mph in four seconds.
The current F-Pace model is priced at around $41,000, yet we think that the SVR version must cost twice as much, or even more.
