Jaguar unveils E-Pace sports SUV

Jaguar E-Pace has been unveiled globally, it is the smallest SUV that Jaguar has produced. Jaguar's "cub" - as they like to call it - is coming in as a major rival for the likes of Audi Q3, Mercedes GLA, and the BMW X1.

"Styling is a mix of the two Fs - the aforementioned SUV and the sleeker F-Type - with sweeping roofline, distinctive Jag grille, muscular panels, short overhangs and powerful haunches", says Independent.

The E-Pace uses the architecture of the Discovery Sport from sister brand Land Rover, and unlike other Jaguar models will not be built in the United Kingdom, but by Magna Steyr in Austria.

The new SUV will be the first Jaguar to be produced outside the United Kingdom after the company said its West Midlands plants were close to capacity.

The top model of the Jaguar E Pace is powered by a 2-litre four-cylinder Ingenium engine while power will range between 148 bhp, 177 bhp and 237 bhp on the diesel, and 247 bhp and 297 bhp of power for the petrol variants respectively.

Jaguar has just revealed the E Pace and it looks attractive at the very first sight.

But that headline starting price will only buy you the entry-level E-PAce D150 manual with front-wheel drive.

According to the Tata-owned marquee, you would love the E-Pace, when it gets launched later this year.

Now for the company's new E-Pace compact crossover there are naturally things to jump over and set another Guinness world record in order for us to notice it (because let's face it, it looks a lot more ordinary than the F-Pace...) and bask in its barrel-rolling aptitude. They'll be greeted by a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices, a new generation head-up display, and the 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system.

A third SUV model is to follow - Jaguar will complete its line-up with an electric model, the I-Pace, which is expected to go into production early in 2018.
