Parkers overall rating: 3.6 out of 5 3.6
  • Good passenger space with lots of headroom
  • Middle rear seat is a bit cramped for adults
  • Boot space is competitive but not class leading

On the whole passenger space is quite good in the Jaguar E-Pace although it goes without saying the larger F-Pace is more luxurious in the rear in terms of space and comfort.

Two adults will fit comfortably enough – extra knee room is liberated by cleverly shaped front seats – but the middle pew is best reserved for shorter people, and the car's sloping roofline can make taller rear passengers feel a little hemmed in.

Will it fit in my garage?

SUVs come in all shapes and sizes these days and the Jaguar E-Pace is one of a growing list to offer off-road styling and height without the associated oversized exterior dimensions.

Rival cars such as the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Range Rover Evoque are actually a little longer thanks to the E-Pace’s sporty short overhangs, but the squat profile means the Jaguar is wider too.

Parking is therefore a bit of a mixed bag – you’ll need a decent amount of space left and right but at least the front bumper won’t be hanging over the white line.

Will my luggage fit?

On the whole the Jaguar E-Pace’s seats-up boot is competitive with its rivals, the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Range Rover Evoque. A gesture-operated tailgate can be specified, which, is opened and closed using a kicking motion under the car.

It’s a useful shape too – wide and free of intrusion thanks to compact rear suspension components, but the loadspace is marginally smaller than rivals with the standard 60:40 seats down. If outright capacity is a priority, you might be better served elsewhere.

For extra utility there’s a 1,800kg braked towing capacity on all-wheel drive cars providing you specify one of the optional tow bars - there are electronically deployable or detachable versions.

Safety

  • Five-star Euro NCAP rating for the E-Pace
  • Based on five-star Evoque and Discovery Sport
  • Lots of safety kit included, plus optional extras

The Jaguar E-Pace was tested by Euro NCAP at the end of 2017 and awarded five stars for its crash-test performance.

It’s based on the same underpinnings as the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque, both of which are five star cars, and the manufacturer says it’s been engineered to exceed worldwide safety standards.

It’s also a family-orientated SUV so as you’d expect, it comes with loads of standard safety gadgets, such as:

There’s also a special airbag that deploys at speeds between 16-31mph to cover the base of the windscreen in the event of the car hitting a pedestrian.

As we’ve detailed in the equipment section, this tech offering improves as you climb the E-Pace ladder, plus there are things like super-bright matrix LED headlights available as an option.

Euro NCAP Rating – 5 stars

The Jaguar E-Pace SUV was tested by Euro NCAP in 2017 and was awarded a 5 star overall rating. This overall rating is calculated from the following individual ratings:

5 star rating
Test 2017
Individual safety ratings
Adult Occupant: 86%
Child Occupant: 87%
Pedestrian: 77%
Safety Assist: 72%

Euro NCAP provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe. The safety ratings are determined from a series of vehicle tests, designed and carried out by Euro NCAP. These tests represent, in a simplified way, important real life accident scenarios that could result in injured or killed car occupants or other road users.
