Top 3 Features Of The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace

The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace is smaller than the F-Pace and more keenly priced, but it did not compromise on comfort, luxury, practicality, and usability. Its design, one of the most expensive in its class, will distinguish it from the F-Pace.

D8 Architecture in Use

This compact SUV used the same D8 architecture we saw on the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The only difference is that Jaguar decided to fit the 2018 E-Pace with more on-road dynamics described only as the “Jaguar version” of the Discovery Sport.

The E-Pace, unlike the Land Rover series like the Discovery Sport and the Range Rover Evoque, won’t be produced in the Halewood facility. Instead, this will be built under license by Magna Steyr in Austria.

Land Rover’s Powertrain Borrowed

Land Rover’s turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel Ingenium engines are going to be fitted in the E-Pace. That includes the range-topping 296bhp 2.0-liter petrol version that can power the E-Pace from 0 to 60mph in just 5.9 seconds. It will have a top speed of 151mph.

All of these will be paired with all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The entry-level 148bhp 2.0-liter diesel model with six-speed manual gearbox will be available with a front-wheel drive system.

Sporty Interior on Point

The interior of the E-Pace will be sporty in nature. This means that the front cabin is driver focused, with a stick shifter instead of the rotary controller. Jaguar said that the interior features of the auto are all inspired by the F-Type.

Sporty interior with a spacious cabin to boot? Can you beat that? The E-Pace boasts of a raised driving position up front and a roomy kneeroom at the back that is similar to the Audi Q5 rather than the Q3. There is plenty of storage space out back too and once the rear seats have been folded, the total capacity will run to 1,234 liters.

Infotainment and connectivity features in the E-Pace will attract the younger clients. Here, you’ll find a 10-inch touchscreen, an optional widescreen TFT display, 4F WiFi hotspot for eight devices, five USB charging ports, and a wearable key option.

The E-Pace will be on sale in the UK starting in late 2017 for the price of £28,500 for the entry-level car.

4 Things We Noticed About The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace Crossover

2018-jaguar-e-pace-4

Spy shots of the 2018 Jaguar E-Pace Crossover showed a number of details about this latest crossover from the British automaker. The E-Pace is a little bit smaller than the F-Pace, and will be similar in size to the XE four-door.

According to analysts and reports, these all-wheel drive crossovers are the reason why Jaguar’s US sales have been toppling that of luxury giants such as Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz. Thanks to the presence of all-wheel drives throughout the range, more people are going to Jaguar for their all-season vehicles.

1. Platform

The platform to be used in the E-Pace is some kind of variation of the one underneath Land Rover’s Land Rover Discovery Sport. The platform is front-drive based, though this might not be a problem at all for consumers who simply want a crossover that looks stylish and has an elevated seating position at the same time.

The spy shots showed that the E-Pace will probably have slender headlights, squarish grille opening, aggressive air intakes, and a raked rear window. Since we’re seeing an aggressive roofline, we don’t expect this crossover to have a third-row seating.

2. Powertrain

The E-Pace is armed with a turbocharged inline-four engine with a ZF-sourced nine-speed automatic transmission. There’s no word yet on what drive system, aside from all-wheel drive, will be available.

3. Competition

As expected, the E-Pace Crossover will be competing with the Audi Q3, the BMW X1, the Infiniti QX30, and the Lexus NX.

4. Arrival And Pricing

Early this 2017, we can expect the E-Pace Crossover to be revealed by Jaguar. But it wouldn’t be available until the end of this year when it will be delivered to showrooms and auto dealers nationwide.

There are no details about the pricing but based on the competition like the Audi and the BMW, we can expect the E-Pace Crossover to be in the mid-$30,000 range.
