Introduction

What Car? says...

Where does the Jaguar E-Pace fit into the famous British brand's line-up? Well, fairly obviously from these photographs, it's an SUV.

Jaguar has three of those in its model range these days, though (there’s also the electric I-Pace and the larger, more conventional F-Pace), so it's best to think of the relatively compact E-Pace as the 'cub' of the range.

It's hardly tiny, though. In fact, it's roughly the same size as the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Volvo XC40. Or, indeed, the Range Rover Evoque, with which the E-Pace shares many of its oily bits.

The latest updates to its dramatic styling (well, dramatic for a family SUV, anyway) are more than just skin deep.

There’s now a plug-in hybrid version – the P300e, which we have also reviewed separately – alongside the usual petrol or diesel power options. You can also choose between a manual or an automatic gearbox, and two or four-wheel drive.

Is the Jaguar E-Pace a good buy, though? Or would you be better off considering one of the many other equally posh family SUVs that are available for similar money (or less)? Over the next few pages, we'll tell you everything you need to know.

And if you decide that you want to buy one, or indeed any other new car that takes your fancy and suits your needs, we can probably secure you a big discount on the brochure price without you needing to do any awkward haggling.

Just take a look at our New Car Buying service to check out some of the latest deals.
