Introduction

What Car? says...

Jaguar may have been a day late to the SUV market, but it’s certainly not a dollar short. Like a Hollywood star showing up fashionably late to an afterparty, it swooped in with the sharp, svelte F-Pace in 2016 and duly stole the limelight. In fact, the F-Pace became the fastest-selling model in the British brand’s history. Like any successful newcomer, the British firm has been quick to capitalise on this success by launching its all-electric I-Pace to sit above it, while the Jaguar E-Pace we’re looking at here sits below.

Described as the 'cub’ of the range, it competes with the likes of the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Volvo XC40. However, the E-Pace is designed to look more purposeful than those models, with design cues borrowed from the F-Type sports car. From headlights that stretch back into the bonnet to side windows that taper to a point above the flared rear wheel arches, this is a distinctly sporty choice.

To make sure that there’s some muscle to backup the athletic intent, you can have up to 296bhp under the bonnet, from a range of 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines. A manual gearbox is available on the two least powerful diesel engines, with four-wheel drive standard on all but the entry-level diesel.

But is the E-Pace actually any good to drive? How does it fare for space and practicality? And does it make financial sense compared to less expensive family SUV rivals? Over the next few pages, we’ll tell you all you need to know, along with our top picks from the E-Pace trim and engine range.
