In 2017 Jaguar introduced the E-Pace crossover as a smaller sibling to the F-Pace and shared its underpinnings with the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque.

While at first sight, it didn't look like a good idea for Jaguar to offer an SUV or a crossover in its lineup, sales proved that misconception wrong. Sure, the brand's hard-core fans didn't want to look at it, but new customers stormed Jaguar's showrooms. Finally, the British brand had a car to compete against its main German rivals, the Q3 from Audi, the X1 from BMW, and the GLA from Mercedes-Benz.

Even though it was based on the same platform as other Land Rover products, the car's exterior, brilliantly designed by Ian Callum, didn't show that. Moreover, the E-Pace's lines resembled those from the F-Type coupe with the swept-back, organic-shaped headlights that flanked the main broad grille. Lower, on the bumper, Jaguar added a pair of side scoops and a second grille in the apron. From its profile, the E-Pace revealed a coupe-like shaped greenhouse with a raked-forward tailgate at the back adorned by a roof spoiler. Furthermore, the taillights resembled those from the F-Type.

Inside, the car's luxurious cabin boasted a pair of bolstered front seats at the front and a bench seat out back. In addition, the center stack housed the infotainment touchscreen, while the driver fronted a binnacle with large dials for the speedometer and tachometer in individual clusters that flanked an LCD between them. On the center stack, the automaker placed the touchscreen for the infotainment system, which unfortunately didn't feature Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

Under the hood, Jaguar installed a range of inline-four engines, either gasoline or diesel depending on the market. All of them were turbocharged, and most versions were fitted with an all-wheel drive system.
