Back in 2017 when Jaguar entered the crowded market place with their compact crossover the company thought that it could fill a niche as they did with their first SUV, the F-Pace. Because of their great success it demonstrates that one should not underestimate the allure of the marriage of exceptional British technology and fine British style. The accomplished design by former Design Director Ian Callum is greatly admired and the Jaguar E-Pace is still and stand-out among SUVs.
Is it that side profile of the roof? The way it floats off the back and down to the rear tail lamps, or is it the clarity of Jaguar’s contemporary design that translates seamlessly to a compact SUV? While the appeal may be hard to define, it is indeed real and the E-Pace is a stunner among many in Jaguar’s current line-up.
With the feeling of one of Jaguar’s sports cars, the inside of E-Pace offers a sense of command and control. The E-Pace dominates the road, unlike any other SUV we have seen in this segment. The inside appoints are an effervescent mix of premium leathers and technical surfaces complemented with sophisticated contrasting stitching and fantastic interior lighting. The E-PACE takes that unique Jaguar feeling to places it’s never been before.
The E-Pace is still a Jaguar with details created to reflect the individual character and personality with unwavering attention to detail.

Spending time with this baby cat was fabulous. All E-Pace models are now available with Smart Settings, the Jaguar brand’s self-learning driver recognition feature. This system is designed to learn drivers’ habits over time serving up key functionality at the right time. This includes automatically adjusting the seat, climate, and infotainment based on individual preferences – the car recognizing each driver by their key fob or smartphone Bluetooth signal as they approach. Connectivity is also enhanced with the standardization of Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ across the entire 2020 E-Pace model lineup. Jaguar E-Pace.
