2018 Jaguar E-PACE pricing and specifications

2018 Jaguar E-PACE rolling shot

Jaguar’s cheapest car just happens to be an SUV, and this week Jaguar Australia has revealed details of its smallest machine before its arrival down under early next year.

The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace is slated to arrive in April, and will kick off from $47,750.

Based on the same platform as the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque, the E-Pace undercuts them both, priced to fit into the small SUV segment rather than the medium SUV segment where the Disco Sport and Evoque lie.


The E-Pace is cheaper than the similarly sized (and small-SUV-classified) BMW X1, but is more expensive than the Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA, which are both smaller. Confused yet?

That’s how Jaguar wants it – it needs to fill as many niches as possible. But it’s buyers who may be more confused than ever. According to Jaguar there will be almost 40 different models and trim levels, with five different engines to choose from.

E-Pace different view

Hopefully Jaguar can sort out the nine-speed auto that it will come with, as its current application in the Disco Sport and Evoque leaves a lot to be desired.

All wheel drive is standard across all models, and the range starts with the base model simply called E-PACE.

Rolling on 17-inch alloys, the E-Pace gets LED headlights and taillights, heated mirrors, cloth seats, the 10-inch InControl touchscreen infotainment, reversing camera, AEB, lane keeping assistant, driver fatigue alert, and parking sensors for both ends of the car.

Dual-zone climate control with rear air vents, torque vectoring, electric park brake, instruments with a 5.0-inch full colour display, auto lights and rain sensing wipers are also standard.

Then we step up to the E-Pace R-Dynamic which as you’d expect gets a more aggressive look with a body kit, R-Dynamic steering wheel, sports seats with contrast stitch, satin-chrome side vents and gloss black grille, plus metal pedals.

After the R-Dynamic is the E-Pace S, which gets the Jaguar J-Blade DRLs, 18-inch alloys, auto-dimming mirrors, puddle lights, electric front seats with leather, higher grade InControl touchscreen, parking sensors and rear cross traffic alert. The E-Pace S R-Dynamic receives grained leather sports seats with contrast stitching and different 18-inch wheels.

After the S sits the E-Pace SE which jumps a wheel size to 19-inch wheels, auto-highbeam, electric tailgate, 14-way electric front seats with memory settings, Jaguar’s Meridian sound system (380W thank you very much), adaptive cruise, AEB which works at higher speed and blind spot warning. There’s also an R-Dynamic options for the SE which gets different wheels and styling.

The top-of-the-tree HSE again goes up in wheel size, to 20-inch, a “kickable” tailgate which opens when you swipe your foot under the bumper, higher quality leather seats with 18-way adjustment and the full digital instrumentation. And yes, the R-Dynamic version gets different wheels and stitching.

Under the bonnet of the E-Pace is a choice of four-cylinder diesels – a 110kW/380Nm ‘D150’ 2.0-litre, and a 132kW/430Nm ‘D180’ 2.0-litre and a 177kW/500Nm ‘D240’ 2.0-litre – while the petrols are the 183kW/365Nm ‘P250’ 2.0-litre and the 221kW/441Nm ‘P300’ 2.0-litre.

Look for more details when the car launches in April 2018.
