Johannesburg - Jaguar has announced local pricing for its new E-Pace SUV ahead of its launch in March.
Starting at R598 500, it undercuts the cheapest F-Pace by R160 000, although bear in mind that while the latter and other Jaguars are built around an advanced aluminium-intensive architecture, the E-Pace is steel bodied and based on the Range Rover Evoque in order to save on cost.
While some overseas variants are front-wheel-driven, all South African models feature all-wheel-drive and there’s a full spread of four-cylinder Ingenium turbocharged engines to choose from, with the 2-litre diesel version offered in 110kW/380Nm, 132kW/430Nm and 177kW/500Nm guises and the 2-litre petrol available with either 184kW/365Nm or 221kW/400Nm.
All five engine variants are paired with an nine-speed automatic gearbox.
The E-Pace is shipped with Jaguar’s 25cm touchscreen infotainment system and buyers can opt for a range of ‘InControl’ apps, up to four 12-volt charging points and a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot.
Key standard features include dual-zone climate control, push-button start, front and rear parking aid (with rear camera), voice control and auto headlights and wipers.
There is a wide selection of trim grades and option packs (see the brochure for more detail), including the R Dynamic styling package which Jaguar lists as a separate model.
