  • by

The Jaguar E-Pace (X540) is a subcompact luxury crossover SUV produced by the British car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) under their Jaguar marque. It was officially revealed on 13 July 2017 and was the 2nd production Jaguar SUV. The car is built in Graz, Austria, by Magna Steyr and from 2018 is also scheduled to be built by Chery Jaguar Land Rover, JLR’s joint venture with partner Chery, in Changshu, China.

The jaguar e-pace crossover just as the f-pace is jaguar’s suv rival to the porsche maicon bmw x3 audi q5 mercedes glc and alfa romeo stelvio the smaller cuter ipay supposedly fights the audi q3 bmw x1 and mercedes gla don’t be confused by the name e-pace does not mean electric for fully electric crossovers with a jaguar leaper on the boot you’ll want the i-pace

The e-pace now has mild hybrid boost for all engines an ap 300 e plug-in version that’ll do most of the school run on battery power but the all-electric jaguar family is still a few years away engines are all turbocharged and all have four cylinders helpfully the cars are all named after their power output in metric horsepower so you simply have to choose between

D165 and d200 diesels same goes for the petrols and their p initial choose from p 200 p 250 or p 300 variants no matter which trim level you plump for your petrol e pace will have all-wheel drive and the nine-speed automatic gearbox negotiating the e-pace trim level is a tad more complex and really splinters the range the basic sub pound 32k e-pace is just that

E-pace no initials no extra nomenclature up the ladder is body-kitted are dynamic black while the p300 version gets a trim level all to itself for uk buying habits a low co2 engine with automatic gears wearing flared bumpers and giant wheels will be the specule spot most often in the wild good job the e-pace caters for rims up to 21 inches across then it’s just

Had a thorough overhaul in fact migrating off its old ford based platform onto jlr’s new revoke ready underpinnings to carve out vital space for hybrid batteries and plug-in ability even the entry-level diesel engine is now allied with 48 volt electric boost so it averages a real world 40 miles per gallon and no longer clatters into life on a frosty morning like an

Undead skeleton trying to escape from a biscuit tin sweet dreams jaguar’s small crossover doesn’t exude much jaggerishness the ride is bobbly and the car feels heavy beneath you that said it’s perkier to drive than its german rivals more refined than it used to be and the choice of engines has really been bolstered by the arrival of hybrids also in the welcome

Improvement column is the 11 inch touchscreen which unlike the last version doesn’t treat smartphone pairing like korean peninsula peace negotiations severing ties every 10 minutes and refusing to see reason lifting the cabin into the modern era it’s nice to not be sitting inside a fossil anymore despite its tech gains the e-pace remains haunted by the same problem

As before if you want to spend 35 000 pounds to 50 000 pounds on a suave looking british mini suv and you aren’t fussed about handling then you buy a range rover of oak precisely because unlike the jag it doesn’t seem to say entry level bottom of the range don’t mistake the e-pace p300 as some kind of jack-hot hatch anyone who tries to tell you this 300 brake

Horsepower 4×4 is some kind of xxl golf r is talking cobblers it sees off zero to 62 in around six seconds but the engine works hard to shift the e-pace bulk and unless slotted into dynamic mode via the f-types mode switch it doesn’t make an enthusiastic noise about the fact even when the dials do glow red and the gearbox sips a red ball the fervent note is sung

From the speakers not the exhausts who are you kidding and electable as the alloy paddles feel like all jags the e-pace transmission is much happier left to swap gears for itself and translate human interference into insta shifts at the other end of the scale the d-165 won’t win any awards for being an inspiring drive but it’s smoother than jag 4 pot diesels were

A few years ago and we got 40 miles per gallon real world economy jags attempted to give the e-pace handling smart worthy of its range of nice handling cars and to a degree it’s worked this is not in any way intimidating to an s u virgin or ungainly and because it’s less girthy than the f at pace it’s immediately less stressful to tack along in this has had an

Effect on the ride this is a firm car that tosses your head around as it deals with british tarmac it’s never crashy but it’s not quite supple either neither is the similarly sporty bmw x2 is that good enough for a jaguar which ought to breathe with the road instead of going all german and sporty again the e-pace is fine for a crossover but no revelation if

You’re after an e-pace over jaguar’s xe saloon you’ll likely be seeking the classic command driving position set up on high the e-pace delivers you feel like you’re sat a good wedge taller than in a bmw x1 or x2 but the high belt line still cocoons you within the car a new ipay spec steering wheel with huge metal paddles is among the updates for the 2021 facelift

Also new are the climate controls and the gear selector which replaces the old and rather likeable pistol grip joystick the best news is the new 11 inch pivot pro interface which at long long last gives jaguar a decent infotainment system the apple carplay android auto mirroring was foolproof in our test cars while the native interface is clearer and more modern

Looking than before it’s taken jaguar far too long to get here but operating the tech inside is no longer like trying to pull old photos off your circa 2003 windows xp laptop while driving two usb sockets lurk under the armrest in a huge cupboard hole with a detent in its lid so cables trailing into grande cup holders aren’t pinched someone’s thought that through you
