"Honey, I shrunk the F-Pace!" exclaimed a Jaguar Used Engine er, before being asked not to refer to a coworker as "honey." The all-new 2018 Jaguar E-Pace is Jaguar's attempt to take the successful F-Pace SUV and shrink it down to compete with smaller offerings from its German rivals like the BMW X3, Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.
The E-Pace shares its larger sibling's looks, including the aggressive grille, sloping roofline, and short front and rear overhangs. The E-Pace will be available with a body-colored roof, a black contrast roof or a fixed-glass panoramic roof. Wheel choices are standard 18-inch wheels or optional 21-inch alloy wheels. A variety of colors are available, including a First Edition-only Caldera Red. Opting for the sportier R-Dynamic trim gives you a more aggressive-looking SUV with a unique front bumper, trim-specific foglights and a satin-chrome grille. It will also give you an extra 50 horsepower from the turbocharged 2.0-liter Used Engine (up to 296 hp from other trim levels' 246 hp).
Inside, occupants will experience a cabin Jaguar claims to be inspired by the F-Type sports car. Satin-chrome and metal-finish materials join leather seats and surfaces to create an upscale interior, while R-Dynamic models add brighter colors, contrast stitching and sport seats for a sportier feel.
The standout feature in the interior is Jaguar's new InControl Touch Pro multimedia system. A 10-inch touchscreen with pinch-and-zoom functionality centralizes many controls for the E-Pace, including audio and navigation, but climate controls are still operated via traditional knobs and dials. The driver gets a configurable 12.3-inch TFT screen for gauges, as well as a color head-up display.
