January 2018

The new Jaguar E-PACE has been awarded BBC TopGear Magazine’s 2017 ‘Crossover of the Year’ in one of motoring’s toughest categories.
The Crossover sector is the fastest growing and toughest sales market in motoring with every manufacturer vying for customers.

TopGear’s expert judges crowned the E-PACE top of the pile and highlighted its outstanding design saying: “The design sells the E-PACE at 50 paces” and “Even if the E-PACE didn’t out-drive or out-ambience its rivals, it would out-want everything”.

Ian Callum, Jaguar director of design, said: “We are absolutely thrilled with TopGear’s recognition of the new E-PACE so soon after its launch. The E-PACE brings an unmistakable extra character to the Compact Crossover sector – it’s a Jaguar with sports car looks, designed for the whole family. It has an incredible package of practicality geared for everyday life, but it’s also lots of fun to drive.”

The exterior design of the E-PACE was inspired by the F-TYPE sports car, characterised by the distinctive Jaguar grille, muscular proportions, short overhands and powerful haunches.

It also comes with the latest in car connectivity, including a 10-inch touch screen as standard. At under 4.4 metres the E-PACE has exceptional interior space and can seat five in comfort.

The E-PACE joins the World Car of the Year F-PACE in Jaguar’s growing line-up of SUVs that will be joined in 2018 by the all-electric I-PACE.

Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director said: “We are honoured by TopGear Magazine’s recognition of the new Jaguar E-PACE and believe it will be a hit with UK buyers too. Its combination of sports car looks with a practical, spacious and connected package as well as strong residual values make it the perfect vehicle for the next generation of Jaguar owners.”

The Jaguar E-PACE is available with a range of powerful and efficient Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The 300PS Ingenium petrol turbo engine powers the sporting SUV from 0-60mph in just 5.9 seconds before reaching an electronically-limited top speed of 151mph. For customers who want
the ultimate efficiency, the front-wheel drive 150PS Ingenium diesel delivers CO2 emissions of 124g/km.

The Jaguar E-PACE, priced from £28,500, is available to order now at Jaguar UK retailers.
