Their reviews are generally a good read and relatively unbiased. It will only be a matter of time until Auto Express had a chance to test drive the E-Pace for a review. New Jaguar E-Pace ride review
Currently it's just an overview and they seemed impressed, saying it has "potential to be one of the best-driving cars in its class."

They're generally very detailed with their reviews and something that wasn't mentioned by anyone else as far as I know if front visibility. Most talk about the rear windshield slope and visibility, but here they mentioned that even when you sit fairly low, the short and stubby nose will make sure you can accurately judge you bumper distance.

Decent feedback but none of what any journalist says will resonate with me, it will be with my own experience that will suggest whats good. At the end of the day there are so many options and it just comes down to personal preference.

Test drives are a definite must, especially with new cars. I"m so used to driving my current car, its dimensions are known to me by heart and I can easily maneuver it around tight spots without scratching anything. The learning curve with a new model will be easier with a shorter front.

You might find some use in renting cars with dimensions closer to the type of car you will want in the future, at least that way the learning curve won't be that bad with a car you end up having.

Surprised they didn't mention the front-wheel-drive platform it borrowed from the Land Rover Evoque, churning out an all-wheel drive E-Pace with Active Driveline in the R-Dynamic package.

Same here. It always nice to hear someone else's opinion, but the final decision is on me. So as for now, it's a bit expensive for me, especially when you see the competitors, for example, Hyundai Tuscon or Kia Sportage.

There's a $10,000 difference in price from the base e-pace to the Tuscon which greatly separates these models and that's just scraping the surface. In what ways are the Tuscon and Sportage competitors?
