Here’s an example of why you can’t always trust official boot capacity figures. You see, Jaguar claims 577 litres (with the rear seats up), suggesting the E-Pace is better at carrying luggage than an X1. In fact, the opposite is true.
The boot is far from pokey, though. You can still (quite easily) fit six carry-on suitcases inside – more than you would in an Audi Q3. The load area is a nice square shape, too, with a wider recess right at the back of the car – handy if you play golf. There’s no lip to speak of at the boot entrance, either.
Fold down the rear seats and they lie almost, but not quite, flat. The extended load area is big enough for most family chores, although, again, rivals including the X1 and Tiguan will carry more.
