Jaguar E-Pace buying guide

Jaguar’s selection of trims and engines for the E-Pace is sizeable and can be a little confusing. Keep reading for an explanation of each option so you choose the E-Pace that’s right for you.

What Jaguar E-Pace trim levels are there?

The E-Pace lineup kicks off with S trim. As standard, this gets alloy wheels, LED headlights, leather seats with electric adjustment in the front, and an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

SE is next up and adds larger alloy wheels, upgraded LED headlights with auto high beams, a powered bootlid, and an upgraded Meridian sound system.

HSE is a premium trim level for Jaguar and gains posh features including even larger alloy wheels, keyless entry and fancier leather seats with more scope for adjustments.

R-Dynamic is Jaguar’s sporty trim and can be mixed with any of the preceding three trims, giving you R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic SE and R-Dynamic HSE. Adding R-Dynamic brings a sportier body kit and larger alloy wheels, along with contrast stitching on the leather seats.

Chequered Flag Edition comes similarly equipped to R-Dynamic SE trim and gains some unique badging inside and out with chequered flag motifs.

Jaguar E-Pace interior and technology

Jaguar is a premium carmaker so you’d expect the cabin to go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. For the most part it succeeds in this endeavour, with plush materials and a neat minimalist design. We’d suggest trying to find a model with a contrast colour in the cabin, however, because all-black ones can feel a little dark.

Jaguar’s infotainment system is pretty good if not quite the best in class. Menu layouts are logical and it’s pretty quick to respond to inputs. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard across the range, which means you always have access to navigation and music apps via your smartphone.

Passenger space in the E-Pace is strong, with plenty of room for four adults to get comfortable. Pushing this to five won’t result in too many complaints, save for limited legroom for the centre-rear passenger. Boot space is similar to rivals in this class but the access permitted by the boot opening isn’t as wide as we’d like to see, making it tougher to load awkwardly shaped objects.

Jaguar E-Pace engine range explained

(Most popular!) Jaguar E-Pace D150 diesel

The entry-level diesel engine for the E-Pace. The 2.0-litre engine here makes 150hp and returns 42mpg on average, completing the 0-62mph run in a shade over 10 seconds.

Jaguar E-Pace D180 diesel

The D180 engine gains 30hp over the entry-level unit for 180hp in total. Fuel economy falls by a fairly minor 2mpg with the 0-62mph time dropping below nine seconds on two-wheel-drive models.

Jaguar E-Pace D240 diesel

The most powerful diesel engine available for the E-Pace is the D240 which, as the name suggests, makes 240hp. The 0-62mph dash falls to 7.4 seconds, with average economy dropping to 37mpg.

Jaguar E-Pace P200 petrol

If you don’t cover high mileages, you might want to try out the E-Pace’s turbo petrol engines. The range starts with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder unit that makes 200hp, delivering a 0-62mph time of just over eight seconds.

Jaguar E-Pace P250 petrol

The P250 adds a little extra power over the P200 petrol engine. With 250hp on tap, the 0-62mph sprint falls to a hair over seven seconds.

Jaguar E-Pace P300 petrol

Range-topping P300 E-Pace models are the most powerful versions you can currently buy. Power rises to an even 300hp, pushing the 0-62mph time down to 6.5 seconds, which means the P300 is nearly as fast as some full-blown hot hatches.

Your Jaguar E-Pace questions answered

You’ll only find one type of Jaguar E-Pace and it’s a five-door hatchback SUV. If you’re after something a little larger, Jaguar builds the slightly chunkier F-Pace SUV, or you could consider either the Range Rover Evoque or Land Rover Discovery Sport from Jaguar’s sister company.

The E-Pace measures in at a hair less than 4.4 metres long. That is within the average range for its class, but does mean it’s a few millimetres shorter than the BMW X1, Mercedes GLA, Audi Q3 and Volvo XC40.

Despite trading some length to its rivals, the Jaguar still serves up a decent amount of cabin space. There’s enough room for four adults to sit comfortably and five can squeeze in with only legroom for the centre-rear passenger being compromised by the gearbox hump in the floor. The boot is a reasonably generous size, but the opening isn’t as wide as some of its rivals, which can make loading bulky items a little trickier.

Jaguar offers both diesel and petrol engines in the E-Pace with the former proving especially popular with UK buyers. Diesel engines get the prefix ‘D’, with petrol options named ‘P’. All E-Pace engines are 2.0-litre four-cylinders regardless of fuel type or power.

No, the E-Pace isn't an electric car. You'd be forgiven for thinking it is, however, since so many other cars use 'E' in their names to highlight their battery-powered credentials. Jaguar's electric SUV is called the I-Pace.

You can spec the E-Pace with the P300e engine, which is a plug-in hybrid. Between the 1.5-litre petrol engine and the electric motor, this version makes 309hp for strong acceleration or, if you drive efficiently, the ability to return nearly 200mpg in ideal conditions. Use battery power alone and you get 38 miles of emissions-free range.

If you're after a posh SUV that's still small enough that city driving doesn't feel like a chore, the E-Pace is a great choice. The competition – the BMW X1, Mercedes GLA and Audi Q3 – are already a talented bunch, however, so what might make you choose the Jaguar over those cars?

For one, the E-Pace feels a little taller from behind the wheel, giving you a more commanding view of the road ahead. Plus, you can tell the car was engineered in the UK from how well tuned the steering and body control are over scruffy roads. We're also fans of the neat and understated cabin, which features a slick infotainment system and lots of on-board tech.

Reliability surveys don't tend to rate the E-Pace very highly. That said, few rivals in the premium space score well in these surveys – the culprit often being the extensive on-board technology fitted, which means more things that could potentially fail.

You get an industry-standard three-year factory warranty, which you can supplement with an extended warranty once it runs out. This will protect you from unexpected bills in the event of a mechanical or electrical failure.

Yes. In fact, most E-Pace models are equipped with four-wheel drive. Only the entry-level P160 petrol and D165 diesel engines were offered with front-wheel drive.

Four-wheel drive isn't necessary for most driving needs, and you'll generally see more benefit in cold weather from fitting winter tyres to your two-wheel-drive car than from picking a four-wheel-drive version without them.

Despite its compact size, the E-Pace is a decent choice for pulling loads. It's rated to pull a braked trailer weighing 1,800kg, which should cover most medium-sized caravans or a smaller horse box.

Make sure to check the gross weight of your vehicle when loaded – it's recommended that you don't tow a trailer weighing more than 85% of this figure.
