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

This range-topping trim gets you massive 20in alloy wheels, keyless entry and 12.3in digital instrument dials over and above everything you get with SE trim. It's too pricey to recommend, though.

The range-topping D240 2.0-litre diesel packs 237bhp. With that figure, you might expect performance to be suitably rapid but, while it’s far from tardy, acceleration never feels particularly urgent.
