With the launch of the new compact crossover Jaguar E-Pace in the camp of competitors began a real panic. The question is logical, why? The fact is that the new Jaguar I-Pace not only looks like a bright star on the background of prim and boring classmates from the class of compact SUV premium class, but can also boast of advanced technical stuffing, modern, comfortable and cozy interior with a mass of fashionable chips. So for car enthusiasts looking for Audi Q3 , BMW X1 , Mercedes GLA , Lexus NX or Infiniti QX30 , in our opinion, it’s worth to wait with the purchase and carefully look at the new Jaguar E-Pace.
I would like to note that the compact urban crossover Jaguar E-Pace owes its appearance to the light mid-size crossover Jaguar F-Pace , which became a real hit of the British brand. Is it a joke, in the past, in 2016, every third sold in the world Jaguar was exactly the crossover Jaguar F-Pace. As a result of the past reptile Jaguar sold more than 149,000 cars, 46 thousand of which model F-Pace, behind which lined up the real queue. This stunning success of the first-born of the British company’s crossover range does not even allow the release of the new Jaguar E-Pace in Britain, and Magna Steyr in Graz and Chery Jaguar Land Rover in Changsha will be producing new items to meet demand in the Chinese market.
The creators of the new urban crossover Jaguar I-Pace immediately named the model baby F-Pace, while not forgetting to visually fix this fact. Silhouettes of the adult jaguar and the trail following it in the footprint of the cub settled down in the lower right corner of the windshield. The same image is projected onto the road surface next to the crossover, it is only necessary to open the doors.
The compact city SUV Jaguar E-Pace has got so stylish and bright body, that in a novelty it is possible to fall in love only for appearance. Yes, what is there to be modest, the exterior design of the new Jaguar body is even more expressive and impressive than the Evoque from the Range Rover. At the same time, the designers, who created a stylish image of the “ip-pace”, tried to make maximum use of design chips from the Jaguar F-type roadster, the Jaguar F-Pace crossover and even the Aston Martin Vantage sports car.
As a result, we have the body of a compact crossover with lush shapes that allow the Jaguar E-Pace to look larger than its real size. In the presence of matrix LED headlamps (look like huge diamonds), branded falshradiatornaya lattice Jaguar and a huge air intakes on the body of a massive front bumper, a swift and dynamic profile of the body with a strong inclination of the windshield, dome roof and high sill of the side glass, huge wheel arches , Capable of taking even 21-inch wheels, solid feed with a compact luggage compartment door, decorated with narrow overall lights with LED stuffing and a neat ba With a powerful nozzle exhaust system.
- The external dimensions of the body of the Jaguar E-Pace 2019-2020 are 4395 mm in length, with 2681 mm of wheelbase and compact front and rear overhangs, respectively 882 mm and 832 mm.
- For the crossover, a variety of light-alloy 17-21 inch wheels and 11 color variants for body painting are available: Caldera Red, Fuji White, Borasco Gray, Firenze Red, Cesium Blue, Yulong White, Indus Silver, Santorini Black, Corris Gray, Farallon Pearl Black And Silicon Silver.
The five-seater salon of the new compact crossover premium-class Jaguar E-Pace flaunts the original interior design, quality materials and the finest amount of modern equipment. The assemblers responsible for the development of the salon of the novelty endowed the model with the original architecture of the front panel and the center console oriented to the driver, the first-row seats with an anatomical profile of the backrest with solid lateral support, a comfortable rear row and an impressive luggage compartment that allows transporting from 577 liters at a standard position of separate 60 / 40 back row back to 1234 liters of maximum volume, provided it is added. It’s annoying only, but crossovers for the Russian market can not boast such a large trunk because it is necessary to immediately subtract 93 liters of the underground volume in which the dock will be located.
In the equipment list, of course, as an option, a huge selection of advanced chips and equipment: a system of circular view, a projection display Head-Up Display Jaguar, a digital full-color instrument panel with 12.3-inch screen, a multimedia system with a 10-inch touch screen Touch Pro (navigation, Wi-Fi 4G), premium Meridian audio system with 15 825 watt speakers, tailgate with non-contact opening function, adaptive headlights, automatic parking, 10 airbags Walkers), adaptive cruise control, a mass of electronic assistants and assistants.

Specifications Jaguar E-Pace 2019-2020 year. When the new Jaguar E-Pace was created, the engineers took the Range Rover Evoque platform as the basis, but upgraded and improved the trolley. Thus, Jaguar E-Pace received a front suspension with levers of aluminum and McPherson struts, and the rear suspension is a multi-link Integral Link, mounted on a stretcher of steel. As an option, adaptive shock absorbers are proposed, which change the degree of damping depending on driving conditions and the quality of the road surface. The power frame of the body of a compact crossover Jaguar is made of several grades of high-strength steel, as well as parts from magnesium and aluminum alloys. The manufacturer declared the excellent rigidity of the body on torsion – 28 700 Nm / deg. Side doors and rear fenders are stamped out of thin, yet durable steel, and aluminum hood and roof, front wings and tailgate.
Under the hood of the new urban parker Jaguar E-Pace will be prescribed exclusively four-cylinder 2.0-liter petrol and diesel engines of the family Ingenium with a capacity of 150 to 300 horses. Motors with a power of up to 200 forces can be equipped with 6 MKPP and 9 automatic transmission, front-wheel drive or full-drive transmission. In Russia, the new “E-Pace” will come exclusively with the 9-speed automatic ZF and all-wheel drive.

Interestingly, the all-wheel drive versions of the new crossover with the D150, D180 and P250 motors are fitted with a conventional Haldex multi-plate clutch, which connects the rear wheels if necessary – when the front wheels slip. But the crossover with 240-horsepower diesel and 300-horsepower gasoline engines is equipped with an advanced Active Driveline system (electronically controlled clutch bags separately for each rear wheel and an additional clutch that can disengage axles in parallel with the cardan). In practice, such a system allows you to more confidently move not only off-road, but also when driving in aggressive mode on ordinary roads, correctly and quickly connecting the rear wheels.
