Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Every Jaguar E-Pace we’ve tried so far has been fitted with a panoramic roof – a feature that almost always affects head room. Even so, you’d have to be very tall to notice your hair brushing the ceiling. The interior is fairly wide so you won’t feel as though you're shoulder-to-shoulder with your front passenger.

The door pockets are rather slender, but there’s a small tray in front of the gear lever to stow your phone, plus a couple of cupholders in front of the central armrest. If you look under that armrest, you’ll find a giant cubbyhole.

 

Boot space

Ignore the official boot capacity Jaguar publishes – the British brand measures it in a different way to most other manufacturers. In simple terms, you can squeeze slightly more clobber into an E-Pace than a Range Rover Evoque, but the Volkswagen Tiguan, BMW X1, and Volvo XC40 can all carry significantly more than both cars.

We managed to fit six carry-on cases below the parcel shelf, compared with five in the Evoque, eight in the XC40 and nine in the X1. Thankfully, the E-Pace's boot is a useful square shape, with a wide recess right at the back of the car – handy if you play golf. There's no lip to speak of at the boot entrance and all versions have some underfloor storage, which on the P300e is a good place to store the charging cable.
