Jaguar’s first compact SUV is here to take on the Audi Q5

It is called the E-Pace and it is meant for small families

Jaguar makes some of the most powerful and sexiest sedans in the world, but the company wants to be serious about its SUVs for a change. After the launch of its first-ever SUV, the F-Pace, last year, the carmaker has now announced its first compact SUV, the E-Pace.

The E-Pace is a result of years of research that Jaguar put in to make sure the first one is the best one. Its design is evidently borrowed from the older brother, F-Pace, and the windows remind you of the Jaguar F-Type coupe as well. Aimed at the young professionals, the E-Pace has been designed to look fun yet powerful.

The E-Pace range will be available in five variants – three diesel variants (150PS, 180PS and 240PS) and two petrol variants (250PS and 300PS). All the variants will be coupled with either a 9-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual, and the top-end models will also have four-wheel drive powertrain. The E-Pace boasts a top speed of 243kmph with it going from 0-100kmph in 6.4 seconds.

The car is expected to come to India by the end of 2018 and it will compete in the sub-Rs 50 lakh segment with the likes of Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Volvo XC60.
