Mzansi welcomes the new Jaguar E-PACE

Words by Wendy Robinson

More assertive, connected, refined and efficient than ever, the impressive new Jaguar E-PACE featuring an enhanced interior, refreshed exterior, latest Pivi Pro infotainment and a choice of powerful and efficient engines is now available in South Africa.

Unpacking what E-Pace means to potential South African buyers

The new Jaguar E-PACE is the younger, smaller sibling of the F-PACE and now features exterior enhancements for a more dynamic appearance, while the new interior benefits from crafted, luxurious materials seamlessly integrated with the latest connected technologies.

The range comprises four engine options that include latest Ingenium petrols and diesels, along with a new three-cylinder petrol plug-in hybrid (PHEV). If you are all about looking out for a long-term investment in the environment and green living, PHEV provides an all-electric range of up to 55km making most commutes completely emissions free, and is capable of a 0-80 per cent charge in as little as 30 minutes.

New architecture delivers enhanced refinement and improved ride comfort while maximising the compact performance SUV’s agility. All models come with smooth shifting automatic transmissions and feature Jaguar’s intelligent all-wheel-drive system which automatically distributes the torque between the front and rear wheels to ensure traction is always maximised.

Latest Pivi Pro infotainment technology is accessed through a new curved glass 11.4-inch HD touchscreen. Key benefits include enhanced clarity – the screen is three times brighter and 48% larger than the previous screen – and the simplified menu structures allow drivers to access or view up to 90 per cent of common tasks from the homescreen in two taps or less.

The new 300 SPORT that we review here can accelerate to 100km/h in 6.9 seconds and features a collection of the latest design enhancements. This dynamic SUV allows for a purchaser to sift through a wardrobe of options. Available in all exterior colours, the 300 SPORT is accessorised with a 20-inch five-spoke Diamond-turned with Black accent wheels, Black Exterior Back and powered tailgate for ease of access. On the inside, there are illuminated Jaguar treadplates, Meridian Audio, Ebony Suede cloth headlining and R-Dynamic Taurus Sport seats available in Ebony, Cloud and Deep Garnet.
