Jaguar E-Pace revealed

Jaguar claims that the E-Pace will become its biggest-selling model when it goes on sale next year.

The Jaguar E-Pace will be available starting later this year.

The wait to have the best Jaguar SUV has been long, really long that buyers nearly lost their hope but the automobile brand had surprised them with multiple launches.

Jaguar E-Pace

The E-Pace design team, led by Jaguar design director Ian Callum, already had an SUV in the family on which to take cues. E-Pace rides on a modified version of the platform that underpins the Range Rover Evoque. This is because the United Kingdom plant is running at capacity and won't be able to churn out the expected six-figure annual production run of the E-Pace. Launching in the fall of 2017, the E-Pace is equipped with a turbocharged 4.0-liter 4-cylinder engine cranking 247 horsepower, with the option of a more powerful engine producing 296 horsepower and hitting 60 from standing at 5.9 seconds, according to the British automaker. The front-wheel-drive version is just being reserved for the entry-level model powered by 150hp 2.0-litre diesel and six-speed manual gearbox for the sake of lowered Carbon dioxide emissions.

The D150 offers Carbon dioxide emissions of 124g/km (and 60.1mpg on the NEDC combined cycle), with the all-wheel drive version of this variant, as well as the D180 AWD at 132g/km for six-speed manuals.

The FWD models will be offered in 150hp, 2.0-litre diesel model that comes with a six-speed manual. In steady-state driving, only the front wheels are driven, but if it gets slippery, Jaguar claims this system sends enough power to the rear to be able to keep the auto in a controlled drift. To that end, the camber has also been changed on the front axle and there is a semi-solid mounting for the front sub-frame for a more connected steering feel. The all-wheel drive system is called Active Driveline and is said to be imbued with a "rear drive character". The E-pace was launched off a metal ramp one side, with a softer dirt bank on the other side cushioning the car's landing. It has a boot capacity of 577 litres.

The design of the front corners and the long horizontal front headlights disguise the long front overhang.

Inspiration from the F-Type continues inside.

The 8.42-litre centre console compartment can house four large water bottles, as well as configurable cupholders and trays; the lockable glovebox is 10-litres, while the front door bins are 10.56-litres with 8.26-litres in the rear.

Jaguar says flourishes such as the muscular haunches are inspired directly by the F-Type, while other external characteristics include chrome side fender vents, 3D effect on the grille mesh, tailpipes integrated into the rear valance, tail lights created to look like a chicane and the option of 21-inch wheels - a first for the segment.
