Can The Jaguar E-Pace Scare The Premium Compact SUV Establishment?

Despite the 'E' prefix added to its name, the Jaguar E-Pace is not electric, but smaller than the F-Pace, the brand's first-ever SUV, hence the 'E' prefix.

Jaguar's rival to the ikes of the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA, the compact SUV shares its underpinnings with the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport, and can be had with all-wheel drive.

Its exterior design is eye-catching, and it could very well be the best-looking vehicle in class, according to Autocar's Matt Prior, who also appreciated the 'Jag-feel' inside, rear legroom, and lots of storage spaces, things that the automaker tends to bring forward when discussing the E-Pace.

However, the interior build quality is not on par with its rivals, and there is some road and wind noise coming into the cockpit at certain times. Also, don�t expect it to drive like a Jaguar saloon, because you'll be disappointed. However, if you could go around its flaws, you'll find a good ride quality and a handling that's not too bad.
