2019 Jaguar E-Pace Exterior is Stunning and Great Looking

Jaguar like to refer E-Pace crossover SUV as the one that blends sports car design with an SUV practicality. We couldn’t agree more. In order to underpin that sentence, Jaguar made even more aggressive styling with short overhangs, both front, and rear. The nose carries new Jaguar’s famous grille that is complemented by sleek headlights. Wheels are oversized but they blend perfectly with the overall styling and the tail is highlighted by prominent exhaust outlets with chrome materials.

Generally, 2019 Jaguar E-Pace looks stunning. It comes with 11 paints options Borasco Gray Metallic, Caesium Blue Metallic, Corris Gray Metallic, Farallon Black Premium Metallic, Fuji White, Indus Silver Metallic, Santorini Black Metallic, Silicon Silver Premium Metallic, Yulong White Metallic. The First Edition trim will be available in Caldera Red, Santorini Black Metallic and Yulong White Metallic.

Off-roading is great and thanks to an architecture that E-Pace shares with Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery. The off-roading DNA is the same, however, Jaguar saved alloy materials for some other exterior parts. So, instead opting for intensive aluminum construction, British carmaker decides to go with a strong steel chassis. Furthermore, the new E-Pace is not lighter at all but is still quick and powerful thanks to engine performances.

The interior of 2019 Jaguar E-Pace is equally stunning as the exterior. This model is able to accumulate five adults passengers. The sport-car theme is simply taken from outside to the inside. The cockpit is an amazing combination of technology and tradition. Round dials for audio volume or cabin temperature are very familiar and similar to other Jaguars models. High-resolution set of displays are dominating the instrument cluster and center stack.

We must add that controls in this SUV are very intuitive and without putting any real effort. Jaguar’s InControl Touch Pro infotainment system is still the same but slightly upgraded with zoom options that are similar to the one on a smartphone. The front seats are comfortable and supportive and there is plenty of leg, shoulder, and headroom. However, behind the situation is not that great as rear seats are tight for two adults. The model will have few trims options like Base, S, SE, R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic SE, R-Dynamic HSE and the First Edition.

There are exactly six color options that will be offered in the interior Ebony/Ebony that is available in trims( Base, S, SE, R-Dynamic S, SE, HSE, and First Edition), Eclipse/Ebony( R-Dynamic S, SE, HSE), Light Oyster/Ebony( S, SE, R-Dynamic S, SE, HSE) , Light Oyster/Lunar(S, SE), Mars Red/Ebony( R-Dynamic S, SE and HSE) and Sienna Tan/Ebony( S, SE).
