In this in-depth review, Carwow goes through everything that makes the E-Pace tick, in an attempt to find out just how good of a deal it represents on the new car market.
As always, they started with interior looks and overall build quality, and this is where the little Jaguar takes its first hit.
According to the reviewer, the interior design is alright, while material quality is good but not great, which is something customers need to know, especially since this segment is so competitive.
A major positive however is practicality, as the E-Pace offers plenty of storage spaces, and sufficient room in the back, even for taller adults. It’s these types of things that probably make up for the fact that theinfotainment system, for example, isn’t as smooth as what you get in its German rivals.
On the road, Jaguars tend to feel sporty and lightweight. The E-Pace, not so much – although the main reason for that is that it’s so closely related to the Range Rover Evoque, which makes it quite heavy. It may come as a surprise, but the E-Pace is actually heavier than the larger F-Pace – and it shows.
To make matters worse, the firm suspension, though its acts as a positive in the corners, doesn’t help give you a very comfortable ride, while its slow transmission and uninspiring steering feel certainly don’t make for strong selling points.
