Next to the likes of the 503bhp Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S, the F-Pace SVR nearly looks like a performance SUV bargain. The Jag is more than £10,000 cheaper and its supercharged V8 makes more power than the Merc and is at least a match in terms of character. An Alfa Stelvio Quadrifoglio is cheaper, but its cabin lacks the Jag’s premium appeal.
The F-Pace SVR’s standard spec is incredibly generous, too, but buyers will of course still be able to hike the price by several thousand pounds should they choose to.
CAP forecasts predict the Jaguar will retain some 51% of its value after three years and 36,000 miles. That will outperform the new GLC 63, which is expected to hold 48% of its value over the same period. The Alfa, however, is expected to retain 58%.
