Jaguar E-PACE is a brand-new model launched last year. It was localized as soon as it was launched overseas. Chery Jaguar E-PACE still maintains its original flavor and has no obvious difference from the overseas version. This E-PACE, which is positioned as a luxury compact SUV, is undoubtedly the most down-to-earth model in the Jaguar series. Under the sporty and individual appearance, can this “little cheetah” have a more prominent performance?
The stylish coupe-style exterior design is doomed to the personality of E-PACE, and its “eye-catching” ability is quite powerful. The family-style wide mouth net does not make the front of the car look bulky, and the rounded corners and smooth lines make the whole body more agile.
The matrix LED headlights do not adopt Jaguar’s traditional slender shape, but this slightly cuteness makes the “little cheetah” sparkle. The Tomahawk 20 rims have one purpose and are always ready to go.
The fast and tightened rear design is simple and direct, which is the easiest way for young users to accept today. The LED taillights are integrated into the straight shape, and the unique recognition also emphasizes the personality.
The trunk volume of 484L is no problem for regular use, but due to the shape of the lower enclosure, the opening of the tailgate is slightly higher, and it may take more effort for small girls to carry heavier luggage.
The cockpit design centered on the driver is Jaguar’s tradition, and it is obvious that E-PACE also retains it. Every setting is prepared for the most convenient use of the driver. The application of a large number of soft materials and leather is also in line with its own positioning. There is no need to worry about the details of workmanship, and British gentlemen pay attention to this.
In addition to the outstanding feel of the leather steering wheel, there are also extremely rich multi-function keys. The texture and strength of the keys are properly handled, and large-scale operations will not cause accidental touches.
The 12.3-inch full LCD instrument panel is brightly colored and delicately displayed, and the color performance of the instrument panel will change accordingly depending on the driving theme environment. The 10-inch central control screen integrates the InControl intelligent driving system, which supports voice recognition, mobile phone interconnection, smart interconnection, panoramic image, navigation, etc., and has everything that should be provided, and the touch sensitivity and software response speed are also extremely high.
Let’s talk about the seats first. The leather texture is still very good. The perforated treatment and the diamond-shaped lattice are very good in terms of vision and comfort. The front seats are 18-way electric adjustable, support heating and have 3 sets of memory functions. Like the front lip of the seat, the length and height can be adjusted individually.
Riding space is not the advantage of E-PACE. Of course, my height (190cm) is really hard for this “little leopard”. Although the large piece of glass above the head cannot be opened, it is bright and bright, which can somewhat supplement the sense of space.
The power system of the Jaguar E-PACE P250 HSE model is a 2.0T turbocharged engine with a maximum power of 249 horsepower and a maximum torque of 365 Nm. The gearbox adopts a 9-speed automatic manual gearbox.
The running ability of the “little cheetah” is really not covered. The engine can release the maximum torque at 1300rpm, and the powerful low-torque performance makes this “little cheetah” always have the urge to try. The nature is revealed. The 9-speed gearbox is also very powerful, with coherent and quick response, which can cooperate with the operator to make correct judgments.
The driving mode selection is on the left side of the gear lever, and you can lock ECO, comfort, sports track or snow by turning it up and down. In fact, this “little cheetah” is really a bit tempered. Once the sporty energy comes up, the sensitivity of steering, accelerator, gearbox, and brakes all change at the same time, and the natural athletic ability cannot be stopped. Only in the ECO mode, this “little cheetah” shows a docile and lovely side.
The chassis tuning of Jaguar E-PACE must be based on sports, but it will not be as hard as imagined. The most prominent performance is sufficient elasticity and excellent overall stability. Even if the body turns around quickly, it will not appear Excessive deviation.
Brief summary: Jaguar E-PACE is a model with sporty skills and personality. The target customers are mainly fashionable young people. Excellent handling performance makes Jaguar E-PACE full of charm. Although the seating space in the rear row is slightly insufficient, it does not affect the outstanding performance of the overall British style. At this stage, with the increase of discounts for car purchases, the unique advantages of Jaguar E-PACE in the field of luxury compact SUVs are becoming more and more obvious.
