Join What Car? for an exclusive preview of the new Jaguar E-Pace small SUV on Thursday 24 August 2017 in Coventry.

You'll be able to examine the car and have a chat about it with its lead designer, Ian Callum.

Following the success of the Jaguar F-Pace large SUV, the British brand's first such model, will be the arrival of the smaller E-Pace later this year.

Priced from £28,500, it faces tough competition against cars such as the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. The E-Pace shares much of its mechanicals with the four-star Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Inside, the E-Pace has a driver-focused but practical layout, with a 12.3in infotainment screen in the centre of the dashboard. There's plenty of leg room and comfortable seats in the back, and a competitively sized boot.

Engines in the E-Pace are 2.0-litre petrols and diesels with between 148bhp and 296bhp, with front or four-wheel drive, depending on power output. A nine-speed automatic gearbox is standard, apart from two of the mid-range diesels, which get a six-speed manual, with auto as an option.

The E-Pace is well equipped, with kit including a rear-view camera and automatic emergency braking as standard.

If you want to see whether the E-Pace can compete with its rivals and whether it can be family-friendly while keeping to Jaguar's traditions of sportiness and elegance, why not come along and tell us what you think? At the event, you'll get a close-up look of the E-Pace and a Q&A opportunity with the Jaguar team, before being interviewed for our magazine and website.
