2018 Jaguar E-Pace


Here is the first look at the production model of the all new E-Pace compact SUV from Jaguar.

It looks fine. Not really great. Not much like a jaguar either, but that's been the trend for years now.
Jags not looking like Jags anymore.

This is supposed to battle with the BMW X 3 or X1 I guess?
Mercedes GLA or GLC?

It looks pretty small. but what isn't small is the price! It will start at almost $39 000 in the US!
Only about $4000 less than the larger F-Pace.

But about $4000 more than a BMW X1. So I guess this is competing with the X3 and GLC?
Again, It looks really small.

Plus, by the time it comes out, the all new Volvo XC40 will be out too.
You can be sure it won't cost anything like $39 000 (Since the all new XC60 starts at $ 42 500)

We'll see....

O... M... G... That side profile is essentially identical (without some small details) to the Hyundai Kona.

The pricing is indeed ambitious, if not even mad. This is related to the Range Rover Evoque, so it should compete with the BMW X1. But 4.000 more? Really?

It actually isn't...AT ALL. There is not one similarity besides the fact that they have two wheels and two doors on each side. You might want to get your eyes checked.

That side profile reminds me of a first gen Nissan Rogue, not the best look IMO!
