Jaguar E-Pace Leasing
The E-Pace is Jaguar’s first compact SUV. Set for release in early 2018, the car combines Jaguar’s signature good looks, agile handling, and dynamic driving experience. Ahead of the launch of the latest Jaguar onto British roads, we have brought together the information you’ll need to decide whether you will be driving the E-Pace in 2018.
Smaller than its sister F-Pace, the E-Pace comes with added features including a head-up display and uses Jaguar’s 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The design of the more compact E-Pace features a rounded rectangular grille much like that used on the F-Pace, but with sportier headlights similar to those on the F-Type. The sportier look extends to the rear, where the larger sized alloy options really fill out the wheel arches.
The interior is similar to that of the F-Pace, and despite its smaller proportions there is still an impressive amount of space inside. The SUV body leaves more legroom in the rear than many cars in the class above can offer, and the 577 litre boot can be expanded to hold an impressive 1,234 litres with the rear seats folded.
Engine, Emissions and Economy
Engine options will initially include Jaguar’s four-cylinder turbo 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. Base-level diesel models will be available with 150 hp and front-wheel drive, with mid-range models offering 180 hp and top-level twin-turbo models delivering 240 hp and making 0-62mph in 7.4 seconds. Petrol engines will come as a 2.0-litre turbo with 250 or 300 hp in 9-speed automatic transmission, making 0-62mph in as little as 6.4 seconds.
The E-Pace is set to offer CO2 emissions as low as 124 g/km on manual models and 147 g/km on automatic versions. Combined fuel economy on manual models reaches up to 60.1 mpg, with the automatic achieving up to 50.4 mpg.
The Jaguar E-Pace will deliver the kind of excellent drive performance that Jaguar is known for, with aluminium suspension components reducing weight and four-wheel drive available on models above the front-wheel drive base level.
Admirers of the Jaguar E-Pace will find themselves spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the perfect model. The car comes in three overall styles and a selection of further variants. The E-Pace is available as the standard E-Pace, the E-Pace S, the E-Pace SE, and the E-Pace HSE. The E-Pace R-Dynamic comes in standard, S, SE, and HSE models, and the E-Pace First Edition is available as a limited standalone model.
Standard E-Pace models and R-Dynamic models offer many of the same features, with R-Dynamic models delivering sportier styling both inside and out. Most noticeable is the extra gloss black and chrome detailing on the R-Dynamic models.

Fantastic service from Brett who swooped in and saved the day when another company let me down. He was very open and honest with advice for what I wanted. Can not fault the service and the work he put it in to get the exact car I wanted.Also had a fantastic experience with Chloe was was also very helpful and great with communicating throughout the whole process. I never once felt I didn’t know what was going on or where we were in the process.I have leased a few cars but never had the personal experience a received with vantage, will be highly recommending to friends and family and will definitely be using again in the future.
Delivery took too long and comms went quiet, but okay.
Daniel helped straighten out some of the delivery chaos.
5 star service.
