The jaguar e type 1961 E-Pace is a sleek SUV that looks as good parked in front of your house as it does tearing up a mountain road. It’s a fun car to drive with responsive steering and a ride that’s composed but never harsh. And, with its standard all-wheel drive and Adaptive Dynamics dampers that can vary from firmer to softer, it’s more engaging than rivals like the BMW X2 and Volvo XC40.
But the Jag’s real strength is how well it connects you to the world. It’s loaded with the sort of driver-assistance features that luxury buyers demand, from a bird’s-eye parking-assist camera view to lane-keeping assist and even an emergency braking system that can actually stop the car from rolling backwards on the highway.

Likewise, it’s loaded with a suite of apps and services that can make your Jag smarter and more connected. It’s compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and its ten-inch touchscreen is loaded with the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system that can show you your music, available navigation and more. And a powerful 825-watt Meridian surround sound system will turn the cabin into your personal concert hall.
The only thing that might deter some shoppers is the E-Pace’s relatively low fuel economy. According to EPA estimates, the E-Pace returns 20 mpg in city driving and 26 on the highway, which is lower than many of its competitors.
