The Jaguar E-PACE should not be confused with the larger Jaguar F-PACE, with which it shares a passing family resemblance. Nor should you confuse it with the Jaguar I-PACE, which hasn’t arrived yet, or the , which is still the stuff of rumor (albeit pretty well substantiated).
So why choose this new SUV and not some other Jaguar model?
Size: The Jaguar E-PACE is smaller than the , but never feels cramped. It seats five in comfort and leaves 24.2 cubic feet of cargo space besides. Carrying more gear than passengers? You can max out cargo capacity at 52.7 cubic feet.
Power: Thanks to its smaller size and lighter weight, the 246 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque contribute to a nimble and athletic feel. The nine-speed transmission and standard all-wheel drive do their part to contribute to a fun drive, too.
Choice: There are seven trim levels, from the Base trim to a frightfully good E-PACE First Edition model. Each succeeding trim builds on the ones below it, but even the Base trim is quite well equipped.
Tech: One reason to opt for the upper trims is the availability of some great technology — a mix of standard and optional features that includes all-surface progress control, JaguarDrive control, configurable dynamics, improved Jaguar Touch Pro infotainment, and a choice of premium Meridian sound systems.
Convinced yet, or still on the fence? Either way, you owe it to yourself to visit your Jaguar dealership near Andover, MA for a test drive and an educated decision. Visit Jaguar Peabody at 247 Newbury St and put that tax refund to good use.
