Review

Sharp looks and plenty of standard equipment add to the E-Pace’s appeal, but an unsettled ride, below par refinement and poor reliability detract from the overall package. Ultimately, the Volvo XC40 and Range Rover Evoque are more comfortable, plusher inside and more practical, while also depreciating more slowly.

get the best price

All the equipment of HSE, but with sportier alloy wheels, a sporty bodykit, contrast stitching on the seats, metal pedals and a sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles for automatic models.

Smoother than the diesels and quicker than all of them, bar the most powerful D240, however, if you rev it hard prepare for your credit card to take a hammering at the fuel pumps. It also lacks low down grunt compared to the diesels so if you tow a caravan or trailer bear that in mind.
