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 can carry more luggage than an X1. In fact, the opposite is true.
The boot is far from poky, 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 – a handy feature if you play golf. There’s no lip to speak of at the boot entrance and there’s a small amount of underfloor storage.
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.
