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.

Trim: R-Dynamic HSE

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.

Engine: 2.0 [300]

The P300 delivers hot hatch levels of acceleration. However, it doesn't sound particularly sonorous when being wrung out and poor fuel economy (expect to see around 25mpg if you flex your right foot) makes it expensive to run.
