Jaguar continues to advance its SUV range, this time presenting a new compact model that will compete with the BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA. And we tell you all the details.
He joined Jaguar SUV the world hand F-Pace a year ago. Now, in less than twelve months, this model is not only the best-selling car brand, but even gives rise to join two new proposals to offer SUV: Electrical I-Pace, and E-Pace that today has officially unveiled a step lower in size.
The new Jaguar E-Pace It is well placed opening the new Jaguar SUV range and measured 4.4 meters, barely four centimeters more than the Range Rover Evoque current. The F-Pace moment remains as flagship with its 4.7 meters long, but not too long. In the notebook next job Jaguar J-Pace there is a large, in the vicinity of five meters, and 2019. Whereas before, and for after the summer of 2018, We have already mentioned I-Pace: a SUV coupé of 4.68 meters it will offer an electric only propulsion-about 350 km from autonomy- and will be manufactured by Magna Steyr in Austria.
But let's first new hand: the Jaguar E-Pace. The new compact SUV It will take the aluminum platform opened XE saloon and uses this material by 75 percent, allowing it to lower weight also assume exclusive. Also make use mechanically to Ingenium Diesel engines and gasoline group (the first Jaguar to only count them in its range) always 2.0 liter: For now not expected V6.
Jaguar E-Pace: engines
In Diesel, Jaguar E-Pace will have powers 150, 180 and 240 hp, while gasoline he bet on the 249 engines and 300 hp, always with 9-speed automatic transmission, While up to 180 hp diesel with manual transmission can be chosen and will be offered with front- or all-wheel drive with a starting price of 37,400 euros.

Two separate clutches on each rear axle could reduce or increase torque to each one to receive all available. This same function serves to maximize the dynamism -supported by a system selective braking curve- when it is about, or take maximum traction on slippery surfaces.
And inside, the new Jaguar E-Pace is so refined and exclusive as the most ambitious Jaguar. The internal lines are inspired sportiness explosive F-Type, while functionally promises numerous holes slide to add an upcoming capacity 30 liters, including two separate spaces for locating smartphone and tablet. his announces 577 liters luggage compartment capacity and incorporates motorized opening keyless foot movement.
