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.

Only available with the P300 Sport engine option, you get flashy 20in wheels, premium LED headlights, a powered tailgate, keyless entry, 12 way heated electric seats, a Meridian sound system, head up display and blind spot monitoring. A pricey option, though.

The most potent of the 2.0-litre petrol engines has 296bhp and a 0-60mph time of 6.6sec. Performance is punchy, but, as with the other engines, the laggy automatic gearbox is frustrating under hard acceleration. On paper, it’s no less efficient than the P200 or P250 but it is a lot pricier.
