Jaguar E-Pace - prices, specs and CO2

It flies off dealer lots in an average of just 19 days, a faster pace than any model in the U.S. F-PACE sales outsold all Jaguars combined in June, dwarfing its traditional F-Type sports auto and XF sedan.

The most obvious callback to the F-Type is the headlamp design, which is very different from the wide-eyed lights on the F-Pace.

The one area where the F-Pace falls down is the interior, which is solid but looks a bit cheap and nasty. E-Pace rides on a modified version of the platform that underpins the Range Rover Evoque. All models come paired with a nine-speed ZF automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

That same engine output also features in the "First Edition".

At the opposite end end of scale, there will be a high-performance 240PS diesel with 500Nm of torque and a 0-62mph time of seven seconds.

For the frugally minding, the 110kW diesel uses 5.6-litres per 100km but the higher-powered petrol model is an 8.0L/100km proposition.

IT'S A manoeuvre known to be one of the hardest to pull off in a vehicle but Jaguar chose the heart-stopping barrel roll stunt to launch its new E-Pace SUV.

Today, Jaguar launched its new E-Pace crossover in more ways than one. In addition to the more powerful 296-horsepower 2.0-liter engine, the E-Pace R-Dynamic models offer a more sophisticated active driveline that can send nearly all the engine torque to either front or rear axles in extreme conditions. Elsewhere inside, the E-Pace gets a competitive 24.2 cu-ft (685 liters) of cargo room behind the rear seats, and 52.5 cu-ft (1,487 liters) with them folded.

Then, of course, I can not change my swings and everything, but I try to play with less spin, to come in a little bit more. Crazy Kazakhs, unpredictable Germans, flamboyant Italians, eccentric Frenchmen - they are all the same to Andy Murray .

There's also ample storage in the door bins, glovebox and centre console.

Interestingly, Jaguar calls the E-Pace a "compact performance SUV" in the latest release.

There is a choice of trim options - S, SE and HSE - for the E-Pace, with and and R-Dynamic Pack for added sporty looks and stuff like Sports Seats with Sportsmesh and leather, new bumpers, gloss black rear valance and satin chrome detailing. The dashboard gets a 10-inch touchscreen and Jaguar's Touch Pro infotainment system, while the E-PACE can optionally be outfitted with a 12.3-inch digital display for the driver's instrumentation, along with a color head-up display.

Buyers will also be able to opt for a wearable Active Key, a waterproof and shockproof wristband that allows owners to lock the main key inside the vehicle when doing activities such as running or swimming.

Britain's biggest carmaker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) said on Thursday (13 July) it is to build its new E-PACE compact sport utility vehicle in Austria and China, the first of its cars only to be manufactured outside of its home market.

The E-pace is offered with Jaguar's InControl connectivity features, with optional 4G wifi connecting up to eight devices, and five USB charging ports.

Price: $48,000-85,000 (estimated) plus on-road costs.

The aforementioned 2.0-litre diesel motor also comes in 180hp and 240hp guises, while the 2.0-litre petrol head develops either 249hp or 300hp.
