We are already testing the new Jaguar compact SUV, the expected 2019 Jaguar E-Pace D180 AWD: A model that aspires to definitively propel the British brand.

The impact and the Fever SUV Creek so deep already in the whole market that, even brands like Jaguar, are today almost obliged to have in their ranks another model of these characteristics between its range. And the new E-Pace, in this sense, is not an SUV anymore. Very striking in its forms, and with proportions that make him be truly muscular, offers some external measures almost traced to the Range Rover Evoque: It has a length of 4.40 meters, a width of 1.98 m and a height of 1.65 m. Yes, the Jaguar is more fluid than lines.
The first version of the new Jaguar E-Pace We are already analyzing is the D180, which mounts a 2.0 turbodiesel engine of 180 hp, along with an automatic change of 9 speeds and total traction. The first thing that draws our attention is the hardness of its suspension in town, although the road is mitigated in some way if the floor is not very irregular.
Dynamically, the SUV is good, with a safe curve step and an optimal straight line poise. Another song is already the walk and the thrust that provides its mechanics: it seems that the 180 Horsepower are somewhat short, although the automatic change of 9 relationships always come to your aid. and is that the excessive weight of 1,886 kg verified on the scale of our technical center by the 2019 Jaguar E-Pace is a handicap for your Diesel engine, but, as we have commented, is not affected that yes the dynamism of very good frame.
2019 Jaguar E-Pace D180 AWD Fuel Consumption
Entering and valuing the real consumption of the new Jaguar E-Pace in our usual routes, we recognize that is not exaggerated: 6.1 L/100 km on the road and 8.4 L/100 km for the city. But, of course, compared to the ever-hyperefficient BMW X1 20d XDrive of 190 hp (5.5 and 7.2 l/100 km, respectively), they are clearly higher.
It’s funny that the Jaguar F-PACE, the older brother SUV that we tested in November 2016, with this same engine but with an automatic 8-speed change approved on its technical sheet CO2 emissions of 139 g/km, while the new E-PACE that today is announcing a CO2 Upper: 147 g/km. That F-PACE, of larger size but with a slightly higher weight (1,958 kg) marked us a real consumption of 6.8 and 8.7 l/100 km for the same routes.
In short, the Jaguar E-Pace is an SUV of the most interesting and that leads us to think that, by concept and size, will mean a good portion of sales for the brand.
