This seems like a reoccurring problem for Jaguar. First came the F-Pace and owners noticed that the exterior panels has gaps that are wider than usual and now reading a review from AutoExpress, the journalist noticed a few few gaps in the interior trim as well. Jaguar's trying to overcome their reputation for poor reliability, but these gaps aren't really instilling me with confidence right now.

I don't think they'll be changing that anytime soon if it's a problem on both the E-Pace and F-Pace, though the vehicle's performance does make up for it as does the interior.

A picture of someone's F-Pace gaps and I think there's more near the doors too. Can't recall every one of them.

Just be happy that for now this is all we have in terms of issues because things like this are easier to fix, often adjusting them takes some time at the dealer but should not cost you anything.
I would only be concerned if no amount of shifting the panels around helps, at that point then we have a bigger issue on our hands.

I will give Jaguar the benefit of the doubt because they have to take into account expansion of aluminum, steel and composites compared to more uniform material models.

Wow, I've found a lot more articles and forums about these gaps issue. It seems like a crucial issue for Jaguars these days. Here are some more photos.
Looking into this more I found out that they also dropped the ball on the F-Type which was one of the first new models they came out with. Lucky for them the F-Type has enough going for it that most people will overlook like that issue. It can be the same situation for the E-Pace if they get it right. Already the F-Pace was a good example of that.

That's the shocking news for me. I can't get how come a company like Jaguar has this stupid issue with panels for such long time. I hope we won't see it in E-pace!

Often its because they can and like any product maker with a lot of appeal elsewhere people will buy for many reasons and ignore where a brand might have fallen short.

Why do you think people still buy iPhones when they can get more from other phone makers?
