"It has every reason to succeed" -- this is what Finbar McFall, global product marketing director, has to say about the new Jaguar E-Pace small SUV. He said this during an interview when asked if the small SUV could outsell the current favourite, which is the mid-sized F-Pace SUV.
Jaguar developed the E-Pace to go up against the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. It is not just a smaller version of the F-Pace as it is completely unique in its own way. In terms of size, it is very similar to that of the Audi Q3.
The E-Pace, also known as "the cub", was built with some inspiration from the Range Rover Evoque. After 3 years of development, combined with Jaguar XF's suspension hardware, the company came out with a sporty SUV. Chief engineer Graham Wilkins made sure that the E-Pace drives just like a Jaguar.
Jaguar has given the E-Pace a starting price of $38,600 in the United States. This means that it will definitely be a great alternative to the Audi Q3 and BMW X1.
