Refreshed Jaguar E-Pace Revealed

Jaguar gives compact E-Pace a facelift

  • Refreshed inside and out

  • Gets Pivi Pro infotainment system


Just a few years old, it’s already time for a refresh for the Jaguar E-Pace. The baby crossover gets significant interior enhancements, new electrified driveline options, Jaguar’s latest infotainment, and some exterior upgrades to keep the cat looking fresh.

Starting with the exterior, there is a new front bumper Jaguar calls “aerodynamically optimised”, along with wider lower openings and new LED headlights as well as a new grille design. The rear bumper has a new mesh insert, and the LED tails are inspired by those of the electric I-Pace.

While globally there are eight powertrain options including three diesels (one of which has front-drive and a manual!!) and five gas models including a 1.5L three-cylinder PHEV model with more than 300 hp and a 55 km electric range, just two are currently listed for Canada. The first a 2.0L four-cylinder making 246 hp, the second a more powerful version of the same with 296 hp. Both have AWD and a nine-speed auto.

The interior has been updated with an 11.4-inch curved-glass touchscreen controlling the new Pivi Pro infotainment. New detailing and materials inside are meant go give it more grown-up look, taking elements from other Jaguar models. Those include the new “cricket-stitch” gear selector, metallic speaker accents, and the Est 1935 tag on the seats. Jaguar also says the structure has been revised to improve refinement and comfort.

Pivi Pro is brighter and clearer than previous Jag screens, and it has its own power source to help it boot nearly instantly and before ignition start. Twin LTE modems improve connectivity and allow OTA updates. It also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The driver gets a 12.4-inch display with new graphics and configuration options, as well as an available rearview mirror camera display.

The new models are available to order now, with pricing info to follow.
