Driving Performance

From what we can see listed below, the E-Pace is ready to take on just about anything in its segment when it comes to performance. If the XE and F-Pace are any indication of what we'll get with respect to it's unique configuration, then the E-Pace will be a real treat. Yes it can make nearly 300HP and complete the 0-60 in 5.9 seconds but there's a lot left that reviews should be covering very soon.


JAGUAR RIDE AND HANDLING
The E-PACE chassis has been developed to deliver agile and refined on-road dynamics. Aluminum chassis components are used to improve suspension performance by increasing rigidity. To increase ride comfort, the E-PACE has a fully independent suspension system with a multi-link rear suspension design.

ALL SURFACE PROGRESS CONTROL
All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) helps give added confidence in slippery conditions. It's a low-speed cruise control that helps the E-PACE cope with low-traction situations, whatever the weather - allowing you to concentrate on steering.

From the rear it looks like your typical modern Jaguar but come to the front and design takes on a unique twist. Not only do a new E-Pace specific headlight design but LED lighting all throughout the exterior. Large 21 inch wheels and a Panoramic roof makes the E-Pace feel bigger.


In profile, the sweeping roofline of the E-PACE blends with a spoiler that sits over a steeply raked rear window. Optional 21" alloy wheels further underscore the sporting character of the E-PACE. From behind, full LED taillights provide a truly distinctive night-time signature.

PANORAMIC ROOF
Choose our optional fixed panoramic glass roof to flood your E‑PACE interior with light and enhance the airy, spacious feeling. Bringing the outside in, it gives everyone superb views of the sky.

LED HEADLIGHTS
For striking on-road presence, the E-PACE features all-round exterior LED lighting. LED lights are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle and are more fuel-efficient as they use less energy.

21" WHEELS
A range of wheel options are available to enhance the sporting character of the E-PACE. Choose from a wide selection of contemporary and dynamic designs in a range of sizes up to 21"

Interior

Hop inside the driver focused interior and immediately you'll feel like its much sportier than Jaguar is making it out to be. Just like the F-Type, your front passenger also gets a grab handle. Sporty features aside, the E-Pace is very welcoming with its Panoramic roof and Ambient Interior Lighting, adequate storage space and a collection of interior material and color configurators to make it your own.


In the E‑PACE, every component has been meticulously designed to deliver a refined, tactile experience. The cockpit wraps around the driver, and the SportShift gear selector sits at your fingertips. The stylish infinity rear view mirror has a frameless design.

FIT YOUR LIFE INSIDE
The deep center console with removable cup holders is suitable for smaller tablets or four 75 cl bottles stored flat. The spacious glovebox is great for all those essentials you want to keep close at hand - like the center console's removable cup holders. Both deep front door bins have been sculpted to carry a range of items including phones, cans and a 1.5-liter bottle of water.

Like the XE, F-Type and F-Pace, connectivity features are very much the same. At the center of it all is the 10-inch Touch Pro screen, an optional (and recommended) 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display, Heads-Up display and a rich sounding Meridian Sound System.


InControl features intuitive and advanced integrated technologies to ensure everyone can make the most of their journey. The 10" Touch Pro screen at the heart of the center console supports swipe and pinch gestures and delivers rich audiovisual entertainment.

TOUCH PRO
To enrich the in-car experience, Touch Pro offers up to 4 customizable home screens and fast response times as well as voice control. The interactive side panel lets you select from a choice of panels - so your main screen area can be used for navigation, while the side panel provides phone controls. Simply swipe up and down to switch between multiple panels.

HEAD-UP DISPLAY
The optional Head-Up Display (HUD) presents key vehicle data on the windshield. It features crystal clear full-color graphics in high resolution, enabling you to see all driver inputs and information with ease.

If there's one word to describe the E-Pace aside from its sporty characteristics, Practical would be it. After all, it's what most people are looking for in this segment. Features like Activity Key, Powered Gesture Tailgate, the 52.7 cubic ft of cargo space, and a host of safe driving technology.

PRACTICALITY
Wherever you need to go, whatever you need to take, the E‑PACE is designed to carry you and your passengers effortlessly, comfortably ‑ and most importantly ‑ safely.

ACTIVITY KEY
With the optional Activity Key, you can enjoy your favorite activities and keep your car key securely in the car. For extra convenience, you can strap the Activity Key to your wrist. The wristband is robust and fully waterproof, allowing you to take part in a range of activities. Simply touch your Activity Key on the tailgate to lock or unlock the car and deactivate or reactivate the conventional key fob.

TAKE YOUR WORLD WITH YOU
Large items can easily be accommodated by a maximum loadspace width of up to 4.2 feet - making it easy for the E‑PACE to take a pushchair lying flat. With a cargo capacity of up to 52.7 cubic ft, the E-PACE can easily fit two medium sized suitcases and three 'cabin carry-on' sized suitcases.
EMERGENCY BRAKING
Should a potential collision be detected, the E-PACE gives an audible forward collision warning. Visual warnings follow. If the driver takes no action, the system applies the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact. This system also includes pedestrian sensing.

LANE KEEP ASSIST
Senses when your vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of your lane and gently steers you back.

DRIVER CONDITION MONITOR
Detects if you're starting to feel drowsy and gives you an early warning when you need to take a break.

CRUISE CONTROL AND SPEED LIMITER
Cruise Control allows you to maintain the current speed of the vehicle without the need for continued use of the accelerator pedal - helping to reduce fatigue. The Speed Limiter allows you to pre-set a maximum specified speed that the vehicle will not exceed.

FRONT AND REAR PARKING AIDS
Makes maneuvering easier and safer - sensors in the front and rear bumpers are triggered when you select Reverse. As you park, the touchscreen display and audio feedback indicate how close you are to obstacles.

360° SURROUND CAMERA
Provides a 360° exterior view via the touchscreen, helping with various maneuvers from parking by a curb to getting in and out of tight spaces and junctions.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL WITH QUEUE ASSIST
Keeps your vehicle a safe distance from the one in front. Should the car in front stop completely, your vehicle will come to a halt. Once the traffic moves, simply touch the accelerator and Adaptive Cruise Control will resume following the car in front.

HIGH-SPEED EMERGENCY BRAKING
Detects when a potential frontal collision with another vehicle may occur and displays a forward alert to warn the driver to brake. If the driver doesn't react, the car will deploy the brakes in order to reduce the severity of the possible impact. High-speed Emergency Braking is ready and active up to 99 MPH.

BLIND SPOT ASSIST
If your vehicle detects another car in your blind spot when you begin to change lanes, this system provides precisely calculated steering torque - guiding your car safely away from the approaching vehicle.

Seriously ?! Did you ever see them out in the wild testing or taking photos or whatever the case is?
Almost every week they use this road to make all kinds of recordings. Sometimes I pass this road but I see the cars covered.

For those who want to search... Serra da Arrábida - Setúbal - Portugal

Now that's cool. Have you ever taken spy photos and sent them in to publications and what not? I would definitely try to become an amateur spy photographer in that scenario haha

Easy to see why, Portual has some of the most ideal roads for a vehicle like this. Almost any european vehicle will be shown off in areas like that, can't get anything nearly as nice in the Americas. For that reason I will be looking forward to your feedback of how the E-Pace drives!

What I'm really grateful for in the new E-Pace is the stick shifter for the automatic gearbox rather than a rotary controller. I've never liked the rotary knobs, perhaps the old school driver in me, but the stick is more engaging.

don't know what cars you have driven but with the more of them you drive the more you start to not care for stuff like that, instead its more of how the transmission shifts. that to me is far more important.

when we lack a 3rd pedal, its just game over from that point on.

I've driven a Ford Fusion Sport model for a few days and absolutely hated the rotary dial. The transmission and engine felt fine, but I just couldn't get used to that dial and constantly double checking it.

That probably correlates well with the fact they aren't on the street in great numbers compared to its rivals which in any big enough city or suburb you will find plenty of.

Kind of disappointing because Ford wins in many other areas of performance, the Focus hatch being one of them.

Sadly, the performance and everything else just wasn't enough to make up for that dial and the horrible fuel economy. Their loss IMO, if someone doesn't like a feature they'll move on to other brands like Jaguar and the E-Pace.
