The new Jaguar E-Pace, compact SUV is finally here
Over the last five years Jaguar has slowly reinvented its image and reinvigorated the range, and is slowly but surely returning to the glory days. The next step for the iconic British marque is the all new Jaguar E-Pace compact SUV – and it's certainly a step in the right direction.
This exciting, innovative car reshapes the often bland and standardised SUV formula to create one of the year's most thrilling drives.
Power and poise
It seems wrong to name a car after an apex predator like the Jaguar if it's not dangerously fast. Luckily, the Jaguar E-Pace hides a 2.0 litre turbo-charged 4 cylinder engine under its hood that delivers a roaring 300 hp, allowing the car to pounce from 0-100 kph in just 6.5 seconds. This is not another boring SUV.
The car handles corners with ease and sticks to the road thanks to its advanced all-wheel-drive system and multi-link suspension. What's more, the optional Adaptive Dynamics system monitors the driver's body position and wheel movements to give the smoothest ride possible.
Class and luxury
The Jaguar E-Pace boasts every bit of the refined luxury that the British marque is known for. Impossibly soft leather seats wrap around the driver, and a three spoke leather steering wheel allows you to adjust with ease using key controls. However, this model looks further into the future than Jaguar ever has before to make the car more comfortable and luxurious than ever.
Some of the car's more innovative features include:
- Lane keep assist.
- Rear camera and front parking aids.
- Dynamic stability control.
- Emergency break assist.
- Pedestrian airbags.
- Bluetooth connectivity.
- 5 USB ports.
- Interactive driver display and heads up display.
- Voice recognition system.
- Remote locking and climate control and vehicle status check.
All of these features and more make this one of the safest and easiest driving Jaguars ever made. If you want to get behind the wheel of Jaguar's newest creation, drop into your nearest Macarthur Automotive branch for a test drive today.
