The 2021 Jaguar E-PACE is Jag's answer to the entry-level luxury buyer's need for a small SUV. Instead of opting up for the mid-size F-PACE, buyers who want something smaller and a bit less overwhelming can strap themselves into the E-PACE's cozy cabin and settle in. This year marks a mild style refresh for the E-PACE, so look for a few updates to the interior and exterior of the vehicle. This vehicle has only been on the market for three years, but it is already getting a new infotainment system (the old one was downright awful and needed to go) as part of these updates. What's the downlow on all these changes? What is there to like about the E-PACE? Buckle up; we're about to take a ride through Jaguar-ville as we look at what's new for the 2021 E-PACE, its styles and trims, how it drives, and what kind of fuel economy it really gets.
What's New For 2021?
We already mentioned it, but it is worth going into some detail. The 2021 Jaguar E-PACE receives new double-bladed daytime running lights up front, and the inside features a new 11.4-inch curved glass infotainment touchscreen with an updated Pivi Pro Connected infotainment system equipped - a far better, more user-friendly system than the outgoing model! The new Pivi Pro is optional on the base trim and is P250 SE trim and above. Its start-up time is significantly faster, it responds to inputs more rapidly (and accurately), and the new virtual display is much easier to work your way through. We honestly cannot get enough of it and think users will enjoy it too.
The 2021 Jaguar E-PACE is only available as a small luxury SUV.
Take your pick between one of the 2021 Jaguar E-PACE's five trim levels: the base, SE, S R-Dynamic, SE R-Dynamic and HSE R-Dynamic. There is a turbo-charged 2.0-L 4-cylinder that powers the base and SE models, known by Jag as the P250. It has a power output of 246 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. The R-Dynamic models have the P300: a tweaked version of the 2.0-L that gets 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. All trims come with all-wheel drive and a 9-speed automatic transmission.
As far as features go, the base starts you off with LED headlights on the front and, inside, a dual-zone automatic climate control system. You get leather upholstery, standard smartphone app integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the old 10-inch infotainment system that we recommend skipping entirely. The SE trim level takes you up to the new Pivi Pro and the 11.4-inch curved display. You also get an 11-speaker sound system, WifFi hot spot connectivity, adaptive cruise control, automated perpendicular and parallel parking, a surround-view camera, and rear cross traffic alert. The S R-Dynamic adds an aerodynamic kit and sport seats while the SE R-Dynamic gives you that plus the rest of the SE's upgrades. The HSE R-Dynamic has upgraded leather upholstery, 20-inch wheels, a digital instrument panel, remote keyless entry, and a blind spot monitoring system tacked on.
When it comes to driving performance, the 2021 Jaguar E-PACE puts in a speedy performance with the turbo 296 hp 4-cylinder engine equipped. The 9-speed automatic transmission is remarkably smooth in its shifts between gears, so what you get is a quiet powertrain that efficiently delivers power to all four wheels. The R-Design's accurate steering is especially noteworthy, but the other trim levels do just fine with precise steering and capable handling as well. This is a small SUV, so you won't feel a ton of bulk from it. Its nimble nature is still impressive for its segment though. We just recommend staying away from the 20 inch wheels if you want a softer, more comfortable ride quality. Otherwise, you will feel a lot of harsh bumps.
Fuel economy is about industry average for the E-PACE. It lags behind its top competitors by only a few mpg depending on which powertrain you're looking at. It is EPA rated for up to 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Real-world tests show that these lagging numbers are at least fairly accurate.
The 2021 Jaguar E-PACE is meant to be the entry-level version of its elder sibling, the F-PACE. This year, a few much-needed positive changes were made, and buyers will likely be drawn to the new Pivi Pro infotainment system. Power over efficiency is the end result of Jag's efforts here, but the E-PACE is definitely a great place for first-time luxury SUV buyers to get their feet wet.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Jaguar E Pace invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Jaguar E Pace MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
