In the evening, July 13, 2017, at a special event in London presented a new compact crossover Jaguar E-Pace, which should bring the brand, even more, new customers and help the company increase sales.
Externally, the new Jaguar E-pace 2018 uses a variety of branded items, including the typical models of the brand of the radiator grille, narrow horizontal rear lights, large air intakes on the sides of the front bumper, lining the front wings in the form of ventilation slots, and head optics here is reminiscent of a sports car F-Type.
The machine noticeably shorter older the F-Pace, but it is quite high so that in profile resembles an SUV fatted Bun. While the company itself is likened to the Jaguar cub, as evidenced by the tiny figure on the edge of the windscreen, which shows the silhouette of an adult feline and sneaking his offspring.
Interior of the new Jaguar E-Pace 2017-2017, though similar to other models of the brand, but the front panel is still the original here. To the right of the center console located plate separating the driver’s area from the passenger. In addition, instead of CPR puck is set to non-latching the joystick.
From the familiar elements were a steering wheel and a 10.0-inch Touch Pro multimedia system display. The instrument panel for a fee can be fully electronic (its role, in this case, plays a screen diagonal of 12.3 “) high-quality materials are used in the finishing of the interior and the Jaguar-Pace.
In addition, inside the car was quite practical – throughout the salon scattered four 12-volt power outlet and five USB ports, a glove compartment can hold ten liters of luggage, and box between the front seats quietly put a few liters of water bottles. Here are just a place in the car still is not enough – the driver growth of more than 180 cm will close, and the rear sofa does not spoil the spaciousness.
New Jaguar E-Pace is built on the same platform as that used in the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport. The front suspension is McPherson struts with aluminum and swivel and the back – Integral Link. As an option available for the model adaptive dampers with two modes (Normal and Dynamic).
The base body SUV made of steel, the front fenders, hood, roof and trunk lid – aluminum. That’s only the minimum mass of the most simple version anyway was a tall – 1700 kg, which is 50 kilos heavier than the larger BMW X3 in the new G01 body.
Overall length Jaguar E-Pace is 4395 mm wheelbase value – 2681, width, and height of the ground clearance (clearance) are not specified. Cargo capacity is 577 liters, and with the folded rear backside of the couch (fold 60:40) compartment increases to 1 234 liters. But this is based on the underground (93 liters), which is on the machines for the market occupied dokatka.
Unlike counterparts, where the power unit is located longitudinally, and the default thrust is transmitted to the rear wheel axle, the new Jaguar E-Pace transversely mounted engine, and the actuator is based in front. In the initial modifications of the rear axle is connected via a multi-plate clutch, and high-end versions are equipped with individual sleeves on each of the rear wheels, allowing you to control the thrust vector.
The range of engines for Jaguar E-Pace consists of two-liter turbocharged units Ingenium family. Gasoline power available in embodiments 249 and 300 “horse”, diesel discount 150, 180 and 240 hp On the market decided to supply only version paired with a 9-band ZF automatic and all-wheel drive, although the basic version can be equipped and mechanics.
On acceleration from zero to hundred diesel crossover is required 9,3 (D180) and 7,4 (D240) seconds, while the petrol version of the P250 and P300 are doing it for the 7.0 and 6.4 seconds. respectively. Competitors in the face of BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA will be a little faster, but in the case of Jaguar affects its heavier weight.

Price starting the diesel version varies from 2.455 million to 3.316 million rubles, while a more powerful 180-hp version of the asking from 2.554 million to 3.83 million rubles., And the same is crossover and gasoline power 249 forces.
Coincides price and on top modification (D240 and P300), which are only offered by R-Design and pull the amount from 3365000 to 3850000 on p. Again, this is significantly more expensive than my classmates, there is no doubt that the buyers I-Pace will certainly find.
