The Jaguar E-Pace has been extensively updated with a refreshed exterior, enhanced interior, the latest Pivi Pro infotainment, a new vehicle architecture and a choice of efficient engines.
JAGUAR E-Pace: ENHANCED EXTERIOR
At the front, the new car has a lower aperture with a distinctive blade element. The new grille now sports a new mesh design with diamond detailing, and the fender vents now feature the Leaper emblem.
New LED headlights now feature “Double J” daytime running light signatures, and are available with optional Pixel LED technology.
At the rear, 4-cylinder models get a mesh insert in the lower bumper, while all other engine derivatives gain new slim horizontal blade finishers.
In the cabin, the Jaguar E-Pace gets a new 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen. It sits in the centre of the dashboard and houses the new Pivi Pro infotainment system.
Drivers can look forward to a redesigned Drive Selector and steering wheel, while passengers will appreciate the new metallic speaker accents and vent finishes.
Jaguar’s ClearSight Interior Rear View Mirror technology also makes its appearance in the E-Pace for the first time with this update.
The Jaguar E-Pace also gets the new 1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol unit from the Ingenium family. Because it’s 33kg lighter than the 4-cylinder, the new engine promises strong performance and refinement.
The motor utilises an exhaust manifold that is integrated into the cylinder head, minimising the distance from the exhaust ports to the turbocharger’s turbine wheel for improved response.
A new plug-in hybrid option is also being offered for the Jaguar E-Pace. Badged as the P300e, its drivetrain pairs a 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine with a 108bhp electric motor driving the rear axle. Its total output is 305bhp.
A 15kWh lithium-ion battery located beneath the boot will provide up to 55km of electric-only range. The compact SUV does zero to 100km/h in 6.5 seconds.
The 2-litre 4-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine is available in three power outputs: 197bhp, 246bhp and 296bhp.
The Jaguar E-Pace has also received updates to its Premium Transverse body Architecture. The front suspension attachment point is now stiffer, for a more comfortable ride. Meanwhile, the new engine mounts supposedly improve throttle response.
