ALL-NEW E-PACE Review
THE ART OF PERFORMANCE
“We are darers, performers and creators. Enemies to everydayers and play-it-safers.
We are the heirs to greatness on road and track.
We never settle for less than extraordinary; pride-welling, pulse-quickening moments when time stops and the world stares. Every Jaguar is a work of technical artistry; agile and sculptural, inspired and theatrical; a true performer that makes the road its stage.
Born of our flair, ingenuity and instinct for seduction, our creations embody our passion for performance and express our reason for being.
To excite in every sense.
So let our drivers sit spellbound in their front-row seats; as our engines roar out their symphonic score.
And let’s show the world that true performance isn’t just measured in figures, but in the way it makes you feel.
These are the moments worth living for, because it’s not the number of breaths you take that matters, it’s the moments that take your breath away.”
The E-PACE not only looks beautiful but is practical and connected too
The Jaguar E-PACE is a seriously smart compact SUV. Designed and engineered to be beautiful, fun and clever, it will introduce new fans to the brand. Instantly recognisable as a Jaguar, its undeniable sporting silhouette shrouds an interior that’s been detailed to the tiniest degree, meaning the E-PACE not only looks beautiful but is practical and connected too.
Everything Jaguar has created with its award-winning range of saloons and sports cars and, of course, its World Car of the Year F-PACE SUV, has benefitted the E-PACE. It’s a compact performance SUV featuring an all-wheel-drive system that is packed with technology designed to ensure the joy of driving a Jaguar whatever the conditions.
Inside, the E-PACE ensures you remain connected wherever life takes you. Using the very latest hardware and software developed in Jaguar’s digital laboratories, it connects to your life and your devices, allowing seamless access to networks and data.
In short it’s a perfectly 21st century car: connected, modern and practical, and utterly engaging to drive. It’s beautiful to look at, fun to get to know and possessing a soul and integrity that can only come from Jaguar.
SPORTS CAR-INSPIRED DESIGN
"Every Jaguar is a work of technical artistry; agile and sculptural, inspired and theatrical; a true performer that makes the road its stage."
Just exactly what gives an object a certain edge can be hard to define. A stance? A swagger? A certain playfulness? Maybe something familiar, something in its silhouette, something hard to discern but which nonetheless stirs memories of a glorious bloodline?
The answer is most likely all of the above, only bound together by a certain confidence. The E-PACE is the fourth, all-new Jaguar in as many years and the most potent expression yet of rediscovered Jaguar relevance in the 21st century.
“Oh, it’s got an attitude to it all right!” says Design Director Ian Callum of the new E-PACE, the most playful car in Jaguar’s 81-year history, in many ways its most bold yet. “That’s exactly how I wanted it; a balance of masculinity and femininity; not too genteel and certainly sensuous; muscular and curvaceous at the same time. That perfect Jaguar balance.” E-PACE brings an uncommon sense of expressiveness to the compact SUV market. Put simply, it is a much more evolved design; simultaneously more clever and more beautiful than is typical in the segment.
“It’s important especially in a smaller car that aspires to a sense of heritage, and a heritage of performance, that it should have that certain attitude,” says Callum. “In some ways the E-PACE is more like an F-TYPE than an F-PACE. Look at the haunches, front and rear, and the way the lines they make intersect, for example. Look at the profile of the roof in silhouette and the way it floats off the back. Look at the headlamps!”
It is testament to the clarity of Jaguar’s contemporary design language that it so easily and effectively translates to a compact SUV.
