Jaguar’s smallest SUV blends sports car design and SUV practicality

First introduced for the 2018 model year, the 2020 Jaguar E-Pace continues to buck norms by proving a practical five-passenger SUV with standard all-wheel drive doesn’t have to fade into the background or be boring to drive. Using the seductive shape of the Jaguar F-Type sports car as its design template, the handsome E-Pace offers a choice of two turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines with outputs of either 246 horsepower or 296 horsepower. Both deliver brisk acceleration that gives the E-Pace a playful driving demeanor, and each is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

There are five trims available and Jaguar should be commended for loading the base model with many desirable features, including a 10-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, two USB ports, power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate control, and leather seating surfaces. Drawbacks include limited rear headroom due to the tapering roofline and a ride that gets much firmer when you add larger optional alloy wheels.

5 reasons to buy the 2020 Jaguar E-Pace

What We Like

Sports car design: Give Jaguar credit for somehow translating the slinky shape of the F-Type sport coupe and convertible onto the bulkier form of a small luxury SUV. Styling is subjective, of course, but we think the E-Pace stands out among a wide range of rivals thanks to its attractive exterior.

Turbocharged engines: You can’t go wrong with either of the two available turbocharged four-cylinder engines. Yes, the punchier 296-hp version in higher trims has more urge when you hit the gas pedal. But the base powertrain is plenty strong for any city or highway driving tasks.

Rich in features: The base model doesn’t skimp when it comes to features and, for the 2020 model year, smartphone connectivity is standard. There is an abundance of ways to make the E-Pace even more luxurious, with options such as upgraded leather trim, adaptive cruise control, and a 15-speaker Meridian audio system.

What Needs Improvement

Rear headroom: There is a price to be paid for the E-Pace’s debonair design, and that happens to be overall headroom in the second row. Taller adults might find the rear confines uncomfortable for anything other than a quick crosstown journey.
