The lineup of Jaguar models is replenished with the new subcompact crossover E-Pace 2019-2020. The presentation of the SUV was held on July 13 in London, and the novelty, barely showing public, managed to enter its name in the Guinness Book of Records. The car under the control of the repeated champion Terry Grant carried out a so-called “long barrel”, having made a 15.3-meter jump with a 270-degree turn. In such an impressive appearance, you can find a certain symbolism, hinting that E-Pace is ready to surprise his potential owners with hidden opportunities.
The start of sales of the new Jaguar model will take place immediately after the premiere, and, as is gratifying, the crossover was immediately estimated in the ruble equivalent. In the Russian market for the Jaguar E-Pace 2019-2020 will ask a minimum of 2 455 000 rubles, this is the cost of the basic version of the D150 (150 hp) in the Standard set. The most expensive will be a modification of the P300 with a 300-horsepower gasoline turbo engine in the performance of R-Dynamic – for it will have to give 3,850,000 rubles. Orders for the SUV are already being accepted, but the first copies will reach Russian buyers not before the spring of 2019. The assembly of cars for Europe is arranged at Magna Steyr plant in Austrian Graz. The needs of the big Chinese market will be covered by the enterprise in Changsha, from the conveyor line of which the cars will start to descend in 2019.
The appearance of a new player under the Jaguar brand in the number of small premium SUVs does not bode well for the leaders of the class in the face of Audi Q3 , BMW X1 , Mercedes GLA , Infiniti QX30 and Lexus NX . This is indicated by the sales figures of the older “brother” of the novelty – F-Pace , for incomplete 2019 sold in the countries of the Old World in the amount of 20 140 pieces. In 2019, “F-Pace” is on an even more impressive schedule – for the first five months in the hands of European motorists transferred to 14 529 copies of the model. Such outstanding figures should alert the competition even if the small “i-pace” is at least as good as its partner in the Jaguar line. This applies to the external design, and the layout of the cabin, and the technologies used. The fact that the novelty is really good, we will try to convince you with the help of photos, bundles and prices, technical characteristics of the model.
The new mini-crossover from Jaguar is built on one platform with the latest Range Rover Evoque . At the same time, the E-Pace was slightly larger than its relative: the length of the body was 4395 mm (in the Evoka – 4370 mm), the width – 1984 mm, height (taking into account the antenna on the roof) – 1649 mm. The wheelbase of the Jaguar is 2681 mm (+ 21 mm to the Evoque), the front and rear wheels are 1625 and 1624 mm, respectively. The overhangs of the car body are as short as possible: front – 882 mm, rear – 832 mm.
In terms of exterior design, the new Jaguar E-Pace is ready to give odds to almost any compact premium SUV, so bright, charismatic and at the same time sporty the British novelty looks externally. To some extent, the model owes its appearance to the F-Pace crossover and F-Type roadster. With the first “E-Pace” related design of the stern, the second borrowed many elements of the bow.

Stylish front optics is uniquely designed based on the F-Type headlamps – the same shape, the same configuration of the basic lighting equipment, the same spectacular running lights on the outer edge. Of course, only LED technology is used in devices, for example, adaptive optical blocks Adaptive Matrix LED are offered, providing excellent illumination at any time of the day. Other elements of the front of the E-Pace are typically “Jaguar” – a proprietary radiator grille with a characteristic pattern of cells, large cutouts of air intakes, a hood with an interesting rib relief, wings with small cuts.

The profile of the crossover is pleased with its dynamic outlines with a heavily piled-up windshield, a falling roof, ending with a tangible spoiler, upward sideways line, short overhangs. Muscular tight sides and pumped-up wings with large arches of wheel arches make the Jaguar E-Pace athletic and assertive, which emphasizes his belonging to the family of sports models.
