The newest model 2019 Jaguar E-Pace will be debut in the near future. It is barely a year since the Jaguar launched its first-ever SUV, the F-Pace model and the automaker already rolling its sleeves for a new SUV-crossover, E-Pace model.
After struggling for decades with few and outdated car models, the manufacturer made a huge progress by launching the F-Pace, which received its inspiration from an F-type sports car. This time Jaguar has deviated from following the path created by others and setting its own.
2019 Jaguar E-Pace Body Structure
The Jaguar E-Pace shares most of its cues with its cousin, the F-Pace SUV. It also shares some of the hardware pieces such as powertrains and body structure with Range Rover Discovery Sport and Evoque. However, the automaker has tried as much as possible to give it a unique character, making the car sportier.
The 2019 Jaguar E-Pace is basically a shrunken F-Pace. Definitely, there are a number of key difference like redesigned LED headlamps, a coupe-style roof, a new front fascia featuring massive outlets, tailgate spoiler beefier rear haunches, short overhangs and more rounded quarter window designs. The headlights stretch back into the bonnet while the side windows taper to a point above flared rear wheel arches.
The car ride on lighter aluminum alloy wheels. Jaguar will probably rethink of beefier wheel arches featured in the previous models. It could add redesigned front fender vents, black mirror caps and new side skirts.
2019 Jaguar E-Pace Interior
The E-Pace is a truly modern car with a very comfy interior, thanks to the PRNDL shifter and the flying buttress arcing down right from the dashboard to the center console. This gives the car cabin a dash like that of F-Type spice. The infotainment systems come classy with a standard 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster. A three-spoke steering wheel comes standard with a bunch of controls.
The material upholstering inside the 2019 Jaguar E-Pace SUV is more modern and upscale than those of the F-Pace model. Expect no wood trim available inside this car. TFT head up display should be standard on this model but that is subject to confirmation from the automaker. Other standard features include 12-volt charging ports Wi-Fi hotspot, numerous USB ports and also a premium sound system.
