2018 Jaguar E pace
Hk_650, 8/1/2018
Bought this car because the Volvo XC40 I wanted to order was so far out on production. I thought this would be a good alternative despite being almost $10,000 more. However, the tech is extremely lacking, the interior is simple but my Chevy Cruze rs is just as nice. So no big points there. Also, the car has less then 2,000mi and been in the shop twice with transmission issues kicking it out of gear while driving down the road and not allowing you to select a gear, Essentially leaving you straded. Oh, and when I was asked to review from Jaguar they took down my review. So be quite weary if you decide to purchase this car.
Best Compact SUV by a mile; simply outstanding
Lance Bowling, 8/10/2018
Pros: Best looking, best handling in class and fun to drive. Stunning looks & style for a SUV, well laid out & comfortable sporty cockpit (F Type copy), good driver visibility, brilliant performance technology, great features, smooth quick-shifting nine-speed transmission, quite nimble, precise steering, super stable braking, great cornering & windy conditions stability, excellent surround camera system, brilliant adaptive cruise control, unbelievable self parking, very good sound system, good interior fit and finish, and great storage capability considering vehicle size. Cons: Little expensive, feathery overly sensitive accelerator pedal (spurts), washed out touchscreen display, windshield blocks radio frequencies, and a few other minor issues listed under, “Details of Issues”. Overall: A vehicle well suited to city driving and equally at home in the country; but not my first choice for long distance trips (full-size SUV time). The vehicle is best suited to a family of four or less (children and smaller bodies in the rear). The 21 inch wheels provide a great ride in “Comfort” & “Dynamic” modes, better than the smaller offerings. Brakes are excellent and feel stable under hard braking. Has “ECO” mode to improve fuel consumption. 6 -different models and a plethora of options to suit most needs. Has all the latest safety features and collision avoidance. Top model could do with a more powerful motor. It is miles better than the competition. 5 out of 5 if it wasn’t for the touchscreen display washout and the feathery throttle pedal. Bottom Line: If you want the best looking, best handling compact SUV in the world, your search stops here. Details of Issues (nothing major) Expensive Has better performance technology than the competition which costs a little more; but even so, still seems a bit pricey. Windshield Blocks Radio Frequencies The windshield is metalized resulting in the blocking of radio frequencies. There is a small clear patch to place your Toll Tag. So the range of wireless devices will be reduced (up to 95%), including; door and gate openers, phones, RFID, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and medical alert. Feather Light and Overly Sensitive Throttle Pedal Almost no foot feel and too sensitive. A bumpy road, a sharp corner or just acceleration forces can cause unwanted acceleration spurts (jerking). Also, you have to hold your foot up all the time when just cruising. It feels unnatural and a little uncomfortable. Thank goodness for the excellent adaptive cruise control. Touchscreen Washout The touchscreen difficult to see in bright daylight and is barely visible in bright sunny conditions. The problem is that the display sits angled almost flat well ahead of the roofline and there is no sunshade, so the sun shines right on it. Accentuated by no high contrast color scheme option, just “Light” (light pastel) or “Dark”. It’s fine at night or on dreary days. Windshield Reduces Night Vision The windshield is metalized to block UV rays which it does well. It also cuts down visible light reducing normal vision just like sunglasses or regular window tint does. The problem is that it also reduces vision at night too when you need maximum clarity. Road Noise Road (tire) noise is noticeable and could benefit from improved floor and wheel arch insulation. Automatic Relocking & Arming Only the dealership can turn it on or off. I can see the reason for automatic locking and arming in high crime areas. In the country, the automatic system is annoying and inconvenient. There should be an easy way to turn the feature on and off. Door Locked Condition Indicator No visible external indicator that the doors are locked (except the folding door mirrors). In a noisy bright light situation, it’s difficult to see (light flash) or hear the doors lock. Automatic Power Fold Door Mirrors Useful option, but it can only be turned on and off by the dealership? Keyless Door Locking Keyless locking is overly complicated and imprecise (Unlocking is great). The manual goes into detail not to grab the door handle while touching the lock sensor. In reality, it is only necessary to be lightly touching the handle for the sensor not to work; or if your finger touches a little outside of the sensor area. One could turn on the auto locking full time, but that causes other irritating convenience issues. Restricted Driver’s Foot Well No good place to put your left foot if you have long legs. Wheel well intrudes into this space. I guess people with long legs shouldn’t drive compact SUVs on long trips. Reflections from Bright Shiny Bezels Reflection in driver’s side mirror from bright shiny driver’s side air vent bezel. Can be a distraction. Reflections from bright shiny bezels (air vents and display) on front windshield. Driver’s Maximum Seat Height The front dash and side windows sills are quite high. I found that with the seat all the way up, I still felt like I was sitting a bit too low (1 inch).
amazing experience

Love this Jaguar!
MinnesotaNiceMom, 7/9/2018
Very sharp looking - I get compliments all of the time on my car. (My Husband’s BMW X5 doesn’t ever get any!) I love the way it drives. Only complaint is the subwoofer shakes my car and makes the doors rattle. 😢 And the back seat is very small!

2018 Jaguar E-PACE video

[MUSIC PLAYING] MARK TAKAHASHI: It may sound counter-intuitive, but small SUVs are really big right now. Case in point, Jaguar E-Pace. As the name suggests, it's a smaller version of the F-Pace. But oddly enough, it's heavier. Go figure. Under the hood is a two liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 246 horsepower. That's a lot for a base model. Then you step up to the dynamic one, and you get 296 horsepower. That sounds like a lot fun. Problem is, it's kind of expensive-- around $40,000. We're talking way more than a BMW X1 or Audi Q3. On the inside it actually has echoes of one of my favorite Jag's, the F-type-- the little coupe or roadster. It even has that cool little "oh, shucks" handle for the front passenger. With that kind of performance, you got to believe they're going to be holding on for dear life. Look for the E-Pace to go on sale sometime in early 2018.

Senior Writer Mark Takahashi checks out the F-Pace's smaller but heavier brother. Under the hood is a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 246 horsepower, a lot for a base model. The Dynamic trim has 296 horsepower. However, this new crossover costs more than a BMW X1 or Audi Q3.

More about the 2018 Jaguar E-PACE

The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace is an all-new player in the luxury crossover SUV segment. And it's available in various combinations depending on your powertrain selection.

The 2018 E-Pace is offered in two main trims that are primarily distinguished by engine output: the base E-Pace P250 and the E-Pace R-Dynamic P300. The four subtrims available are Standard, S, SE and HSE, with a limited run of First Edition models this year. The base E-Pace P250 is powered by a 246-horsepower four-cylinder engine, while the E-Pace R-Dynamic uses a more powerful version with 296 hp. A nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard across the board, though R-Dynamic models get a more sophisticated AWD system.
The Standard subtrim, which is only available on the base E-Pace P250, comes better equipped than your average subcompact SUV, though to be fair it is also priced accordingly. Some highlights include 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, a drowsy driver warning system, selectable drive modes, heated mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, 60/40-split folding rear seats, Bluetooth, a 10-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, forward collision warning and mitigation, and lane keeping assist.

Stepping up to the S trim gets you 18-inch wheels, LED running lights, leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a suite of nice advanced parking aids. The SE trim takes it a step further to what we see as the E-Pace sweet spot. You get 19-inch wheels, automatic high beams, a power liftgate, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, an 11-speaker premium audio system, and dynamic driving assist aids such as blind-spot monitoring system and adaptive cruise control.

The top HSE trim is where things begin to get pricey: It's only offered with the high-output R-Dynamic models. It adds 20-inch wheels, a gesture-controlled power liftgate, keyless entry, 18-way power-adjustable seats with memory function, premium leather upholstery and a full-digital instrument panel. In addition to the power increase, E-Pace R-Dynamic P300 models exclusive exterior styling, black steering-wheel paddles, and sport seats with contrast stitching.

Luckily many of the features, such as keyless entry, can be added to certain lower trim models, so you don't have to start at the HSE level if keyless entry is a must-have. We also like a few other stand-alone options, including the adaptive suspension system (especially for cars with 19-inch or larger wheels) and heated and cooled 18-way-adjustable leather seats with heated rear seats.

The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace no doubt has a lot to offer, and we suspect it will become a segment favorite no matter what you're cross-shopping it against. And if you are considering the E-Pace, you can do your research and run your comparisons right here on Edmunds.
