With Jaguar making its first foray into the SUV market with the F-Pace back in 2016, the British manufacturer decided to extend its line-up with the E-Pace.
The compact SUV comes with many of the same features as its larger sibling and goes up against the likes of the Audi Q2, BMW X2 and Mercedes GLC.
We take a brief look at the Jaguar E-Pace…
What power units can you choose?
Jaguar offers E-Pace customers with the choose of six different engines – three petrol and three diesels – and all are based on Jaguar Land Rover’s Ingenium units to allow for improved performance and efficiency.
The diesel range includes the 2.0-litre D150, D180 and D240, which are paired to a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive – while the standard and S options can come with the D150 with a six-speed manual and front-wheel drive. The D150 develops 148bhp, while the D180 produces 178bhp and the D240 makes 237bhp.
All the petrol options – labelled the P200, P250 and P300 – come with all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic. The P200 develops 198bhp, while you also get the 246bhp P250 and the P300 that produces 297bhp. The P300 is the most powerful engine available, and it can get the E-Pace from 0-60mph in 6.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 151mph.
What trim levels are there?
The E-Pace trim line-up is split into two ranges – E-Pace and E-Pace R-Dynamic – with the latter being the sportier offering. Each range then gets S, SE and HSE options, which add further equipment to add to the premium feel of the vehicle. As standard, the E-Pace comes with LED head and taillights, 17-inch alloy wheels, two-zone climate control, a leather steering wheel, Jaguar Drive Control driving modes, a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth and a rear-view camera.
It also comes with a series of safety systems, such as emergency braking, cruise control with a speed limiter, driver condition monitor, lane keep assist and parking sensors on the front and rear ends. The R-Dynamic option includes all that of the standard E-Pace, but includes sportier styling, such as a trim-specific bodykit, black detailing and metal finishers.
How much customisation is there?
Jaguar offers the E-Pace with 12 exterior colours, which can then be specified with a panoramic roof panel and a black contrasting roof to offset the main body colour. 12 alloy wheel options are also on offer so customers can make their E-Pace stand out. Jaguar wants to give its customers plenty of choice, which is why there are also multiple equipment packs to choose from – including additional driver safety equipment, connect packs that add a Wi-Fi hotspot and improved sound systems.See Available E-Pace deals
