The E-PACE is the base model. However, it still offers a variety of features sure to delight the most discriminating driver. Practical, stylish, agile, and Jaguar-classy, the E-PACE offers fabric eight-way adjustable front seats and heated door mirrors. It also offers exterior LED lighting, a 10-inch touchscreen for audiovisual infotainment, and state-of-the-art technology. The tech includes a rear camera, lane keep assist, cruise control with speed limiter, front, and rear park assist, and a driver condition monitor.

The three trim levels are similar, yet each has its own special features.

It delivers 296 horsepower, averages a combined 24 mpg, and puts out lower emissions.
