Motoring journalist, John Swift, took to the road in the Jaguar E-Pace the newest addition to the iconic Jag range.
Given the unstoppable success of the brand’s F-Pace model, and our seemingly insatiable demand for SUVs, it was only a matter of time before Jaguar offered a compact version – and here it is in the form of the Jaguar E-Pace.
It is built on much the same chassis and underpinnings as its sister car, the Range Rover Evoque, albeit with some suspension differences; but that structure is designed for front wheel drive cars and traditionally Jaguars are pushed from the rear wheels, rather than being pulled by those up front, and in large part that’s what makes them such good cars to drive.
Does it matter? Will the buyers care? John Swift gives his views.
