Overview

After seeing how successful crossovers and SUVs can be, Jaguar decided to expand its SUV family with the addition of the new 2018 E-Pace. Jaguar's first SUV, the F-Pace, has done exceptionally well, and the automaker is looking to cash in on the idea with a smaller offering that follows a similar recipe. Jaguar has gone to great lengths to highlight just how sporty the new E-Pace is. The compact SUV holds an official Guinness World Records title for completing the Furthest Barrel Roll in a Production vehicle, covering 50 feet, while completing a 270-degree barrel roll. Clearly, Jaguar isn't messing around with the new E-Pace.

What's New for 2018

The 2018 E-Pace is an all-new vehicle that will compete with the likes of the BMW X1, Lexus NX, Mercedes-Benz GLA, and Mini Cooper Countryman.

Jaguar E-PACE

Choosing Your Jaguar E-PACE

All variants of the new E-Pace will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine. The engine makes two tunes of power. In the regular E-Pace and E-Pace First Edition families, the 2.0-liter motor generates 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. In the sportier R-Dynamic trims, the engine has been tuned to put out 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The engine, regardless of power output, is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Power is put down through an all-wheel-drive system as standard.

Just like a true sports car, the E-Pace has a few features that make the driving experience for the small SUV even more memorable. An optional Configurable Dynamics package ($360) allows drivers to personalize the vehicle to their ideal setup. Things like throttle sensitivity, shift points for the transmission, steering wheel weight, and even the suspension's damper stiffness can be fine-tuned. The available Adaptive Dynamics system ($1,020) helps bring luxury and sportiness to the E-Pace thanks to electronically-controlled dampers that changes damping force based on road conditions and feedback from the driver.

All E-Pace models come with JaguarDrive Control that gives drivers four driving modes to choose from: Normal, Dynamic, Eco, and Rain, Ice, and Snow. Normal is the default mode, Dynamic is for spirited drives, Eco reigns everything in for better fuel economy, while Rain, Ice, and Snow is to improve stability in inclement weather.

The new E-Pace is broken down into three different families: E-Pace, E-Pace R-Dynamic, and E-Pace First Edition. All together, the compact SUV is available in seven different trims.

Jaguar E-PACE

Base

The entry-level E-Pace starts at $39,595 (all prices include the $995 destination fee) and is powered by the 246-hp 2.0-liter engine. Exterior features include: LED headlights, heated mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, 17-inch wheels, and a tailgate spoiler. On the inside, the compact SUV features a leather steering wheel, two-zone climate control, an outside temperature gauge, illuminated metal treadplates, eight-way manual front seats, a six-speaker audio system, and a 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system with Bluetooth and voice control.

The E-Pace is also fitted with a host of modern driver assistance systems right out of the gate, including automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera, cruise control and speed limiter, lane keeping assist, front and rear parking aid, and a Driver Condition Monitor.

Available packages on the E-Pace include SiriusXM Satellite Radio and HD Radio ($510) that adds what its name implies.

Jaguar E-PACE

S

Stepping up to the S trim costs $42,495. The E-Pace S gets 18-inch wheels, LED headlights with signature DRL, auto-dimming exterior mirrors that are heated, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, grained leather seats, navigation, InControl Apps, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot.

The E-Pace S gets all of the same driver assistance systems as the base model, but adds the Park Pack, which includes a 360-degree parking aid, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive speed limiter, and traffic sign recognition.

Optional packages on the E-Pace S include the Drive Pack ($970) that brings high-speed automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with queue assist, and blind-spot monitoring. The Cold Climate Pack ($795) adds a heated, leather steering wheel, heated washer jets, and a heated windshield.

Jaguar E-PACE

SE

The next trim up is the SE that has a starting price tag of $45,295. The trim adds 19-inch wheels, automatic high beams, and a power tailgate. The interior features 14-way grained leather front seats with a memory setting and an 11-speaker Meridian audio system. In addition to the S trim's driver assistance systems, the E-Pace SE adds the Drive Pack as standard. The Cold Climate Pack is the only available package for the E-Pace SE.

Jaguar E-PACE

R-Dynamic S

The E-Pace R-Dynamic S is the most affordable way to get into the more powerful 296-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. The trim starts at $48,245. The model comes with R-Dynamic body-colored bumpers, auto-dimming and power folding heated door mirrors with approach lights, fog lights, 18-inch wheels, and LED headlights with signature DRL on the outside.

The interior of the R-Dyanmic S features: 10-way power front seats, grained leather seats with contrast stitching, two-zone climate control, black gearshift paddles, bright metal pedals, an auto-dimming interior rearview mirror, Touch pro, 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, navigation, InControl Apps, and a six-speaker audio system.

The high-performance trim has the same driver assistance features as the E-Pace S model: the Drive Pack and the Cold Climate Pack.

Jaguar E-PACE

R-Dynamic SE

Starting at $51,045, the R-Dynamic SE is the middle child of the R-Dynamic family. The trim has many of the same features as the regular SE model, but adds 19-inch wheels, automatic high beams, a powered tailgate, and the Meridian sound system. The Cold Climate Pack is the only available package for the R-Dynamic SE trim.

Jaguar E-PACE

R-Dynamic HSE

The R-Dynamic HSE is the range-topping trim in the R-Dynamic lineup and is priced at $54,095. The model adds 20-inch wheels, a keyless entry system, a powered gesture tailgate, 18-way perforated Windsor leather seats with a memory function, and a 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display. The R-Dynamic HSE also only offers the Cold Climate Pack.

Jaguar E-PACE

First Edition

The most expensive E-Pace on sale is the First Edition trim that costs $54,545. The vehicle is powered by the 246-hp 2.0-liter turbo motor. The trim has many of the same feature as the R-Dynamic HSE trim, but adds an activity key, a head-up display, a fixed panoramic roof, first edition carpet mats, and Configurable Dynamics, as standard. There are no available packages for the First Edition trim.

CarsDirect Tip

As a sporty compact SUV, getting the more powerful 296-hp engine seems like the right choice, making the R-Dynamic S trim the model we recommend exploring. The Drive Pack is worth the additional cost, as is the Configurable Dynamics system. Consumers in urban areas will find the 360-degree camera, which is available for an additional $360, to be extremely helpful, while a powered tailgate ($360), a tailgate with gesture control ($460), and keyless entry ($565) can all be added separately.

The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace is the brand's newest and arguably the most important part of its expansion into the SUV segments. This compact model seats five, starts at a reasonably price, and matches the handsome styling of other Jaguar products. It delivers a planted and confident drive, although the lagging drivetrain tempers our praise.

Best Value

The Jaguar E-Pace's trim walk is complicated – a base model, S, and SE typify the mainstream P250, while the more powerful R-Dynamic featuring S, SE, and HSE variants. And for its first model year, there's even an E-Pace First Edition. The middling E-Pace SE P250 is the smartest buy, though, ringing up at a reasonable $45,295, a hearty $5,700 over the E-Pace's starting price but bringing plenty of gear along for the ride.

It features LED headlights with automatic high beams, plush leather upholstery, a 380-watt, 11-speaker audio system, a powered tailgate, and a few important active safety systems, like lane-keep assist and automatic emergency braking.

Unless your color choice is Fuji White, you’ll pay the $590 extra for one of seven metallic paint choices or $1,200 for a pair of high-end metallic colors. We chose the middle ground as it offers a wide selection of patinas. It's easy to elevate the E-Pace's price with upgraded leather upholstery, bigger wheels, and a classy black styling pack – avoid them if you can. Instead, we'd grab the heated, 14-way front seats, the head-up display and digital instrument cluster, the Cold Climate Package, and the 360-degree camera rig to get an E-Pace that is just a hair over $49,000 but that will satisfy the needs of 99.99 percent of owners.

  • Model: 2018 Jaguar E-Pace SE P250
  • Engine: 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder
  • Output: 246 hp / 269 lb-ft
  • Transmission: Nine-speed automatic
  • Drivetrain: All-wheel drive
  • MPG: 21 City / 27 Hwy
  • Options: Metallic paint ($590), 14-way heated front seats with memory ($510), head-up display ($970), digital instrument cluster ($565), Cold Climate Package ($795, heated steering wheel, heated windshield, heated wiper jets, soft-grain leather steering wheel), 360-degree camera ($360)
  • Base Price: $45,295 (including $995 destination charge)
  • Best Value Price: $49,085

Performance

Jaguar E-PACE

Jaguar and Land Rover are joined at the hip, so it’s no surprise that the 2018 E-Pace has a similar platform to the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport. The Jaguar offers a pair of all-wheel drive systems, with the top one ported directly from the Evoque, making for a strong selling point for this model. Otherwise, the standard arrangement is pleasant, although not as inspiring.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers 246 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. A version of this engine has extra boost, raising performance to 296 horsepower on select trims. The engine is loud, even obnoxious from the outside, but at least the cabin is sufficiently quieted. The nine-speed automatic transmission seems indecisive at times, especially at the low end. As for the top-spec model, getting to 60 miles per hour in less than six seconds is within your reach.

Style

The lines of the F-Pace carryover to the E-Pace and that’s a good thing. Other than that, it borrows some shapes from other manufacturers. Its grille matches the size of this SUV, but the thin headlights seem misplaced at the lower fascia. Handsome overhangs add muscle, although the faux ducts just seem wrong on this model.

Inside, the environment is small, as expected, with its chief strengths found in the comfortable and supportive design of the front seats as well as the generous amount of cargo space. The sight lines are quite good thanks to the high-set seats and short hood. The back seat is much more tolerable than you might expect, with three able to sit in relative comfort, at least for short trips.

Folding down the rear seat supplies 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space, more than double the standard 24.2 cubic feet. In comparison, the competing INFINITI QX30 offers just 34.0 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.

The Best and Worst Things

The Jaguar is fun to drive, especially in its top trim guise with extra power and the upgraded all-wheel drive system supporting it.

The low starting price quickly vanishes as you add options. Fully loaded and its top price pushes near $60,000.

Right For? Wrong For?

Jaguar E-PACE

Customers wanting to give the Jaguar brand a try will gravitate to the E-Pace. The XE sedan is less costly, but the SUV supplies the storage space.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for ample room for five, your search should begin with the F-Pace.

The Bottom Line

Jaguar delivers a sub-$40,000 crossover, but that’s only a starting point for this model. Any trim above it offers a more luxurious and better appointed cabin. Competition in this segment is fierce with every luxury manufacturer participating. The E-Pace targets the same customers as the Range Rover Evoque, but the styling differences offer a clear distinction between the two.
