Car Test Jaguar E-Pace


We recently had the enormous pleasure of spending a week with the Jaguar E-PACE, Jaguar's first compact SUV. The E-Pace has wonderfully good looks and agility and we loved the driver-focused cockpit sitting at the heart of a family-focused interior. Its aesthetic is unmistakeably sporty, with a bold honeycomb mesh grille framed by LED headlights with signature 'J' blades.


We particularly enjoyed the Matrix LED headlights and front and rear Animated Directional Indicators. The dynamic roofline blends with a spoiler that sits over a steeply raked rear window to give E-PACE a distinctive profile and the lines of a coupé.


There are some ingenious design flourishes, such as the puddle lights in the door mirrors, which illuminate the ground with an eye-catching Jaguar and cub design. On the model we tested were imposing and attractive 21"3 alloy wheels, which further underscore E-PACE's sporting character. At the rear, full LED taillights provide a distinctive, night-time signature. Muscular haunches give this car an assertive stance and the wide tailgate has been designed to allow easy access to the large and versatile loadspace.


Climbing into the cockpit it feels as if every component has been meticulously designed to deliver a refined, tactile experience. The cockpit wraps around you and the SportShift Selector sits at your fingertips. The 3-spoke leather steering wheel incorporates key controls for ease of use. To enhance the


sporty feel, the R-Dynamic steering wheel features Satin Black gearshift paddles.


In fact, the interior is distinctly Jaguar, with excellent levels of stowage, plus an advanced suite of infotainment and driver technologies. There's also a subtle Jaguar print in the cubby box and on the centre console. Complementing this, HSE models also feature beautifully detailed animal print seat labels.


And as well as the comfort, technology and sporting pedigree, the E-PACE is an amazingly roomy vehicle, with a loadspace is up to 1.3 metres wide, while the powered gesture tailgate lets you open the boot hands-free, making it easy to enjoy your favourite activities.


Out on the road Jaguar's performance technology delivers a controlled, exhilarating drive. To give you more confidence and improved performance across a wide range of conditions, the All Wheel Drive system transfers torque between the front and rear wheels as driving conditions dictate.


For increased agility, Active Driveline allows up to 100 percent of rear axle torque to be distributed to the outside rear wheel when cornering.


Book a test drive and discover for yourself Jaguar’s sumptuous SUV. The E-PACE is available from £29,080, visit jaguar.co.uk or call 0345 303 2303.
