I have spent a week with the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic S which means it is time to tell you just what features are most apparent on this performance SUV. Here are the best and worst features of the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic S.
Best: Interior Quality
The quality level in the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic S is superb. The leather materials are top-notch, full digital gauge cluster, a huge navigation screen, and while there is plastic in place to hold it all together, none of it feels cheap.
Best: Bucket Seats
One thing on the interior that gets its own mention has to be the sport bucket seats. The seats look benchmarked against the aftermarket Recaro Sportster GTs, but with some differences. They feature harness holes should you need that upgrade for some track driving and overall they will hold you nice and tight.
The 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic S features a turbocharged inline-6 engine which kicks out a more than necessary 395 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. That powerplant is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and makes its way to all four corners via the all-wheel-drive system. The result puts you back into those sport bucket seats.
Best: Sporty Options/Settings
Along with those bucket seats and the performance to back up its name, the F-Pace R Dynamic S is filled with a slew of sport options and setting for you to enable. To start, there is a drive mode nob allowing you to switch between a few drive modes from comfort all the way to the most aggressive (should you make it) Dynamic mode and a few in between. With the drive modes, you get a stopwatch, G-force meter, and a lap timer.
Best: Exterior Looks
Very subjective, but the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace R Dynamic S is a good-looking SUV.
Worst: Wish Engine Barked More in Dynamic Mode
The F-Pace is the SUV brother to the driving machine F-Type. The F-Type happens to have some of the angriest exhaust notes in the industry. I would have liked to see even 20% of that anger be able to get flipped on with the right drive mode in the F-Pace R Dynamic S.
Worst: No Real Brake System to Back Up All the Sporty Options
I just raved about all the performance of this machine. The seats to hold you when you hit some corners hard, all the bells and whistles should you take your performance SUV to a race track, but hiding behind those nice Jaguar wheels you will not find any big brake kit. Standard brakes all around.
