Jaguar's future is looking awfully prosperous. Since it joined forces with fellow British brand Land Rover in 2008, it has rapidly, dramatically and successfully altered its image.

Fifteen years ago, it was getting by primarily with the XJ, S-Type and X-Type, small-selling saloons with styling straight out of the 1950s. But today, Jaguar has a range of competitive, modern models, best-selling among them being the F-Pace large SUV, followed by this smaller Jaguar E-Pace and, next year, the electric I-Pace.

Priced from £28,500, the E-Pace is the ‘cub’ of Jaguar’s range. It will take on the likes of the Audi Q3 with dynamic looks, a luxurious interior and an eye on practicality.

So, does this not-so-big cat appeal to Jaguar fans and small SUV-seeking young families alike? We invited our readers to see it at Jaguar’s design centre in Coventry to find out.
