Review

Sharp looks and plenty of standard equipment add to the Jaguar E-Pace’s appeal, but an unsettled ride, below-par efficiency 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

Adding to R-Dynamic trim, you get upgraded LED lights with auto main beam, privacy glass, a panoramic sunroof, power folding door mirrors and a black exterior pack with red brake calipers.

The entry-level petrol engine is 2.0-litres in capacity and has a turbo to give 197bhp and a 0-62mph time of 8.5sec. It’s rather thirsty with economy in the low 30s mpg and high CO2 emissions, though.
