For those looking for a compact family SUV that balances practicality and driver entertainment, the Jaguar E-Pace is one to add to the list. This sporty and stylish alternative to some very talented rivals, such as the the Audi Q3, BMW X2, Mercedes-Benz GLA and Range Rover Evoque, is the smallest member of Jaguar’s ‘Pace’ family of SUVs, joining the larger F-Pace and I-Pace electric SUV.

As with other Jaguar products, the E-Pace continues to make use of aluminum construction to minimise weight and benefit on-road behaviour. Combine this with a range of strong engines and this smart family SUV could prove to be more appealing to those who aren’t looking for outright space and comfort.

The E-Pace was updated for 2021, with the main focus being on the interior. There’s a new climate control system and 11.4-inch touchscreen with Jaguar’s latest Pivi software. Both are slick, intuitive to use and bring the baby Jaguar in line with bigger and more expensive offerings from the firm. Higher-spec models come with plenty of leather lavished across the interior – including the dashboard and doors. 

This can be a little confusing at first. When choosing your E-Pace, you can either pick a regular E-Pace or a sportier looking E-Pace R-Dynamic. From here you then choose S, SE and HSE versions of these models. The more letters, the more comprehensively equipped your car will be.

There is also an E-Pace 300 Sport. This is a standalone trim level acting as the flagship model and only comes with a 300hp petrol engine.
