Parkers overall rating: 4.2 out of 5 4.2
  • Lots of rear passenger and luggage space
  • No transmission tunnel taking up room
  • Additional space under the ‘bonnet’

How much space is there?

The lack of a conventional engine and gearbox has allowed Jaguar designers to create an extremely futuristic shape, with a very short nose and the cabin pushed forward like a mid-engined supercar.

Combined with a distance between the front and rear wheels that’s some 130mm greater than the Jaguar F-Pace, the I-Pace has an extremely spacious cabin, despite its relatively compact proportions. This is why a six-feet tall passenger sitting behind a similar-sized adult will find a couple of inches of knee- and head-room. The spacious rear accommodation is also helped by the almost entirely flat floor, where normally a bulky transmission tunnel would compromise space.

There’s a conventional centre console between the front seats, but it houses the ventilation system and it’s incorporated in such a way that it makes it easy to access the touchscreen infotainment system and various controls arranged neatly on it.

Delve beneath the superficial appeal of the touchscreens for more advanced technology such as sat-nav settings optimised to electric car-friendly routes including recharging points, and access to Jaguar’s remote app via Amazon’s Alexa in addition to the more usual smartphone access.

Boot space and storage

Jaguar quotes a 656-litre boot capacity with the rear seats up, 1,435 litres when they’re folded. There’s also a 10.5-litre storage cubby between the front seats, and a tiny front boot.

For some reference, the smaller and less SUV-shaped Polestar 2 makes do with a 405-litre boot. While the Audi E-Tron has a 605-litre boot and the Mercedes EQC’s measures in at 500 litres.

In other words, the I-Pace’s boot is ahead of its rivals in terms of size. It’s wide and flat too – although base models don’t come with an automated tailgate.

Is it easy to park?

Even though it’s an SUV, the I-Pace has a lower, sportier look than the Jaguar E-Pace and Jaguar F-Pace and sits between those two models size-wise – at 4,682mm it’s 50mm shorter than an F-Pace, if 271mm longer than an E-Pace. 

The view out of the back is pinched thanks to its sloping design. At least parking cameras come with all models.

The Park Assist Pack is worth speccing if you regularly park in tight areas. We found the 360 degree camera to be excellent – both clear and wide enough to see what’s happening around you. Front facing cameras will activate and show up on the Jaguar’s infotainment screen when you come close to objects while parking too.

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.
