No copy cat
For E-pace, Jaguar didn’t just clone the larger F-pace. Instead, it aimed for a sort of F-type-infused crossover, as seen in the familial front and rear light shapes, muscular haunches, coupe roofline and dashboard. Aluminium bonnet, front guards, roof and tailgate combine with one of Jaguar’s stiffest body structures (behind I-pace and F-type), built in Austria. E-pace’s highly modified (though still Ford ownership-era derived) D8 platform is from cousin the Rangie Evoque. Changes include a sophisticated four-link rear suspension, in the name of greater dynamic prowess.
