Snowy Showdown Between the Porsche Macan GTS and Jaguar F-Pace S

Porsche Macan GTS and Jaguar F-Pace S

The Porsche Macan GTS and Jaguar F-Pace S belong in the best SUVs of the world today. When it comes to mechanical specifications, the vehicles are almost alike. So what happens when the two are pitted against each other?

In one episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend Senior Editors Jason Cammisa and Johnny Lieberman took the SUVs for a spin in the snowy peaks of Steamboat Springs, Colorado at the famous Bridgestone Driving School.

The automotive experts got into the steering wheels of the Porsche Macan GTS and Jaguar F-Pace S to see how they fare against each other in a drag race, grocery retrieval and drifting. They also take viewers inside each SUV to provide a feel on how it is like to be a passenger and driver of each vehicle.

2018 Jaguar F-Pace SVR To Come Soon?

The 2016 Jaguar F-Pace.

Supercars cannot simply stay as they are. Customers are requiring much more in terms of performance, reliability and technology. Brands such as Porsche, Bentley, Maserati and Lamborghini have all answered the call for a sporty SUV. Now, Jaguar has also heard the need for it and recently unveiled plans for the F-Pace SUV.

But rumor has it that there’s a new player in town—a V8-powered called the SVR. This is a quick turnaround for Jaguar considering it has just started production of the SUV.

If it becomes a real thing, we should see the SVR being unveiled as early as next year’s Geneva International Motor Show.

Outside, the Jaguar F-Pace SVR is expected to be more muscular than the existing crossover SUV. The front bumper would have larger intakes with a chrome accent along the lower center grille and a glossy black insert.

Although the LED-equipped headlights would remain the same, the hood would get black vents. The tail-side of the front fenders would also have vents in all-black. Other features would include a front splitter, side skirt extensions and rear diffuser.

Inside, the sporty SVR would expectedly have a luxury-laden cabin that uses high-end materials and high-tech amenities. The infotainment system would include the InControl system—navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and smartphone app support.

To control it, you would have to use the large touchscreen on the center console. There are also some buttons on the three-spoke steering wheel. Options would include new upholstery colors, plus driver’s aides like automatic braking, lane-keep assist, parking assist, and carbon fiber trim.

The current F-Pace has three options, but the SVR would naturally require more in the tune of two additional supercharged cylinders in Jaguar’s tried-and-true 5.0-liter V-8. The output levels should match the Range Rover at 542 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque.

Expect the SVR to hit 60 mph in the low four-second range with a top speed of 160 mph.

The regular F-Pace starts at $40,990 and goes up to $56,700. The SVR would most likely add $20,000 on the base model.
