The 2022 Jaguar E-Pace receives a handful of equipment revisions following last year's major refresh. Driver memory settings are now standard, as is a contrasting black roof on the 300 Sport model. The previously standard surround-view camera reverts to option status. The current E-Pace generation debuted in 2018.
Choosing Your Jaguar E-PACE
The E-Pace comes in three trim levels: P250, P250 SE, and 300 Sport. Pricing starts at $42,045 and goes to $51,045 for the 300 Sport.
The P250 trims come with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The 300 Sport gets a high-output version of the same engine, featuring mild hybrid assist.
All E-PACE models are equipped with all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The 300 Sport's AWD system can send up to 100 percent of rear torque to a single wheel for more aggressive handling.
|Engine Type||Horsepower||Torque||Fuel Economy (Combined)|
|2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder||246 hp||269 lb-ft||24 mpg|
|2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder||296 hp||295 lb-ft||23 mpg|
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The E-PACE is a compact, two-row crossover with room for five. Like many small luxury crossovers, the E-PACE emphasizes style over utility. There are 22.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat and 49.5 with it folded, about the same as a hatchback.
Every E-PACE comes with lane-keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, a driver alertness monitor, and front and rear parking sensors. Stepping up to the P250 SE brings traffic sign recognition and an adaptive speed limiter.
The 300 Sport adds a head-up display and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Both P250 SE and 300 Sport are eligible for adaptive cruise control ($1,350) and a surround-view camera ($700).
All E-PACE models start out with an 11.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 12-speaker Meridian sound system, two front and three rear USB ports, wireless device charging, a phone signal booster, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The P250 SE and 300 Sport also come with navigation.
Wi-fi capability with a one-year data plan is available on the P250 SE for $400 and standard on the 300 Sport. Both trims can get a 14-speaker Meridian surround-sound for $450.
The P250 offers a leather interior, heated 12-way power front seats, automatic wipers, rear fog lights, power-folding side mirrors, and proximity key access. The outside gets 18-inch wheels and LED headlights and taillights.
The SE picks up a power liftgate, signature headlights, an auto-dimming driver-side mirror, a 12.3-inch digital instrument display, and 19-inch wheels. The heated rear seats cost $500. Buyers can choose a contrasting black roof ($450) or a fixed glass roof ($1,250).
For $950, the Convenience Pack adds a hands-free power liftgate, extra power outlets, a cargo organizer, and Activity Key — a water- and shock-resistant wristband that functions as a key fob. The $600 Cold Climate Pack includes a heated steering wheel and a heated windshield with heated washers. The Dynamic Handling Pack ($1,450) provides an adaptive suspension system and red brake calipers. There's also a Premium Upgrade Interior Pack ($750) with ambient lighting, an air purifier, and illuminated metal door sill plates.
Along with the more powerful engine, the 300 Sport comes with 20-inch wheels, gloss black body trim, and sportier interior accents. The Dynamic Handling Pack and black roof are also standard. Premium 16-way Windsor leather seats can be added for $1,850. For another $800, buyers can add ventilated front seats and heated rear seats.
The base P250 does well on technology and comfort features but doesn't offer a power liftgate or sunroof. That alone makes the P250 SE the real entry point for most buyers, costlier though it is. While the standard engine performs nicely in a crossover this size, the more powerful and better-handling 300 Sport is worth the extra cash in our view.
