The Jaguar E-Pace SUV has been heavily revised inside and out for the 2021 model year.

At the front there’s a revised lower aperture and the grille mesh has with changes to the diamond-shaped detailing. New side fender vents feature the iconic Jaguar Leaper emblem. At the rear, the lower bumper features a new mesh insert which sits between the integrated tailpipes. The LED rear lights feature Jaguar?s graphics.

All models are available with the Black Exterior Pack with bespoke elements finished in Narvik Black.

The cabin has embossed Jaguar Leapers on the headrests. ?Est.1935 Jaguar Coventry? upholstery tags reference the history and heritage of the marque. Additional details include Jaguar animal print pattern in the central cubby area and in front of the drive selector.

The interior has enhanced connectivity and greater refinement. It has an integrated 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen that’s three times brighter and 48 per cent larger and a simplified menu gives access or view up to 90 per cent of common tasks from the home screen in two taps or less.

The new drive selector is lower and wider and features an upper section finished with ‘cricket-ball’ stitching. Whereas the lower part is made of precision-engineered metal for enhanced tactility.

A new steering wheel features hidden-until-lit switches and metal gearshift paddles.

Jaguar E-Pace’s AWD system has second generation ?Standard Driveline? technology which automatically distributes the torque between the front and rear wheels to ensure traction is always maximised. During steady state cruising, the setup disengages the AWD system, sending power only to the front axle to lower fuel consumption.

Julian Thomson, Design Director, Jaguar said: “New E-Pace features key design elements from across the Jaguar family, enhancing the exterior and introducing beautiful new details to the interior. All this ensures the latest model has a more grown-up appeal while retaining its compact performance SUV sensibilities.”
