Top Gear review

Finally, I got the E-pace review from my favorite car publication. Top Gear has confirmed that E-Pace is the most handsome and best-handling car in its class. "if you want the best looking, best handling small crossover in the world, and can make peace with the firm ride, your search probably stops here."

Their only complaint seems to be the price, but that's for a fully loaded E-Pace and I assume most people won't go for every option out there. 30,750 for the R-Dynamic trim seems fair for a sizable list of standard features. There's always year end sales and incentives as well, helping to bring down the price a bit.

While the E-Pace isn't cheap it does have a lot going for it which makes up for the price its at but if price observation stops at what the E-Pace goes for alone, that's the biggest mistake someone can make. Putting pricing in perspective by what other options you have and what they have to offer does go a long way. For a lot of people this will be the Macan alternative they always wanted.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Macan is in a bit different price segment. The E-Pace will go on sale in early 2018 starting at $39,595, while Macan comes with a factory invoice of about $48,000 for an S model and an MSRP of about $50,000. The Turbo trim level adds about $22,000 to the vehicle's MSRP.

For that price, people can get an E-Pace R-Dynamic with even more features, though I don't know how it'll compare to a base-model Macan.

At the same time you can get more bang for your buck if you don't mind buying a CPO Macan that still has a reasonable warranty term left. Often people buying these are short term buyers that sell back to the market before warranty is up. Never discount the benefits of buying used.

I think we should stop speculating around Macan, unless someone here wants to buy a used model, but still, in my opinion, it's better to get a new E-pace than used Porsche.

Would you mind expanding on why a new E-Pace over the used Porsche? From what I seen it has been a good alternative and this is after all the space that Jaguar wants to compete in. Once the E-Pace is out not everyone is going to be for it. Actually it might be a reason why some go to Porsche.

I'd go for a used Porsche if I knew the previous owner because some people just don't care about leased vehicles and put them through the ringer. May be better to get a new E-Pace knowing nobody has done anything to it.

CPO is usually a good way to go if you don't mind paying a bit more for a fast and the most worry-free used buying experience, aside from that its going to be a lot of hands-on tasks on your end as the buyer. CPO with a good warranty term has been a proven method some of my BMW buddies have gone with. Peace of mind is sometimes worth the extra cost.
