Jaguar's F-Pace has been a quick hit with consumers in the short time the crossover has been on the market. For an encore, the automaker has added a second, smaller crossover, the E-Pace, to its lineup. Set to arrive in January 2018, the crossover will be available with either a 246- or 296-hp Ingenium 2.0-liter gas engine and standard all-wheel-drive. Here's what people are saying about the latest Jaguar.
Jaguar expects 80 percent of E-Pace customers to be new to the Jaguar brand and is counting on sales of the compact crossover to match the success of its first crossover and now top-selling model, the F-Pace.
Jaguar Land Rover, Britain's biggest automaker, will build its new E-Pace compact crossover in Austria and China, the first of its vehicles only to be manufactured outside of its home market, the U.K.
Jaguar plans to build just 300 units of the 592-hp XE SV Project 8, the brand's most powerful road car to date. The model has been developed as a halo car for the entry-level XE range and as an advert for JLR's Special Vehicle Operations unit.
The E-Pace compact crossover will become Jaguar's second utility vehicle next year, after the F-Pace. A third crossover, the battery-powered I-Pace, will join Jaguar's lineup after the E-Pace, but also next year.
