The popularity of SUVs has been very good to Jaguar. Its F-Pace quickly became the brand's best-selling model, no surprise considering how well it conveyed the British brand's traditional values. It's also not a surprise that Jaguar has since followed up with a smaller version called the E-Pace. A foot shorter in length compared to the F-Pace, the E-Pace gives Jaguar a toehold against compact crossovers such as the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.
The E-Pace borrows heavily from its big sister, with exterior styling that closely resembles a smaller version of the F-Pace. But the cabin recalls Jaguar's F-Type sports car, complete with a large and sturdy handle for passengers to grab during one of those "Oh, shinola!" moments. Smaller size and lighter weight can only enhance the E-Pace's agility compared to the larger F-Pace's, and while we have yet to drive Jaguar's newest SUV, we expect it to be an entertaining ride.
Current Jaguar E-Pace
The Jaguar E-Pace is offered in two models, P250 and R-Dynamic, with the engine being the main differentiator. These two models are further broken out into Standard, S, SE and HSE trim levels, with a limited-run First Edition model also on offer.
The P250 models are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 247 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, while R-Dynamic models get a version of the same engine with 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque along with, bigger brakes, paddle shifters, and a few extra comfort and convenience features. Both versions feature an automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive.
The Standard trim is exclusive to the P250, and it comes with a cloth interior and collision detection with automatic braking, among other features. More luxury equipment accompanies the S trim level, including leather upholstery and navigation. The SE trim adds premium audio and a power liftgate among other goodies, and the HSE, which comes exclusively with the R-Dynamic powertrain, gets an upgraded interior. As with most European luxury cars, the Jaguar E-Pace offers a long list of options, running the gamut from a panoramic sunroof to a cabin air ionizer. Many of them come bundled with the First Edition model, production of which will be limited to the E-Pace's first year on the market.
