Used Jaguar E-Pace for Sale | Buy online with Finance
Which used Jaguar E-Pace should you buy?
The Jaguar E-Pace is a smaller, more affordable version of the hugely popular Jaguar F-Pace SUV. It’s good to drive, too; not quite up to the standards of the performance-focused Jaguar F-Type sports car, but up there with the best cars of this type.
Most versions offer the all-weather reassurance of four-wheel drive, but the two-wheel-drive model is cheaper to buy and delivers lower running costs thanks to its improved fuel economy.
All of the 2.0-litre petrol versions feature four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox as standard. The Jaguar E-Pace P200 offers the best fuel economy, but the mid-range Jaguar E-Pace P250 delivers livelier acceleration. Aside from the plug-in hybrid model, the Jaguar E-Pace P300 is the quickest car in the range.
The entry-level 2.0-litre diesel is the Jaguar E-Pace D165, which pairs a manual gearbox and two-wheel drive. It’s great if you’re after the lowest running costs, but the Jaguar E-Pace D165 with four-wheel drive and an automatic transmission is our pick of the range, as it offers strong fuel economy, along with extra traction on slippery surfaces and a more relaxed drive.
The Jaguar E-Pace D200 is ideal if you’re after more performance from a diesel engine.
As part of a 2020 update, a new Jaguar E-Pace P300e plug-in hybrid version was introduced. It pairs a 1.5-litre petrol engine with an electric motor to make it the most efficient and most powerful model in the range. Fully charged, the Jaguar E-Pace P300e can deliver up to 34 miles of electric range, but you’ll need to keep the battery regularly charged to make the most of the potential fuel savings.
What used Jaguar E-Pace trim levels are available?
Before you choose a trim level, you need to select one of three Jaguar E-Pace models: base, R-Dynamic and 300 Sport. To make it easier for you, think of the three options in the following way: everything you need, the same but with a sportier look, and genuinely sporty.
If you’ve decided the Jaguar E-Pace is the compact SUV for you, read on for our guide to the best models, along with details of the various trim packs.
The base model is available only with the entry-level D165 2.0-litre diesel engine, but comes with a generous array of standard equipment, which includes the following:
- 11.1-inch touchscreen media system (10 inches on pre-2020 cars)
- Digital radio
- Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
- Automatic LED headlights
- LED rear lights
- Automatic wipers
- Fabric seats with eight-way manual adjustment
- Auto-dimming rear-view mirror
- Dual-zone climate control
- Leather steering wheel
- Centre console armrest
- 17-inch alloy wheels
- Twin tailpipes
- Front and rear parking sensors
- 3D surround camera
- Lane keep assist
- Hill launch assist
Jaguar E-Pace S
Move up to the Jaguar E-Pace S trim, and you get a wider choice of engines and more equipment for your money. There’s a premium of around £2,000 when buying new, but the difference in price is lower on the used market.
- 18-inch alloy wheels
- Leather seats with 12-way electric adjustment
- LED headlights with signature daytime running lights
- Rear animated direction indicators
- Traffic sign recognition
Jaguar E-Pace SE
The mid-range Jaguar E-Pace SE trim is the sweet spot in the range. It costs around £2,000 more than the Jaguar E-Pace S trim, but the package is more comprehensive.
One thing to note is that the alloy wheels are different, depending on whether you opt for the base or R-Dynamic version. Opt for the S or SE trim, and while the sizes are the same, the finish is different, with the R-Dynamic versions having a sportier appearance.
- 19-inch alloy wheels
- Electric tailgate
- Memory function for the electric front seats
- Digital instrument panel
- Blind spot assist
- Rear traffic monitor
Jaguar E-Pace HSE
With the exception of the 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, the HSE trim is available across the Jaguar E-Pace range. With prices starting from around £45,000, it’s an expensive variant, but it comes with an impressive list of equipment.
- 20-inch alloy wheels
- Keyless entry
- 16-way adjustment for the front seats
- Windsor leather upholstery
- Adaptive cruise control
- Meridian audio system
Jaguar E-Pace Sport
Rather than being a standard trim level, the Jaguar E-Pace 300 Sport is more like a standalone model. It was expensive when new, and although it didn’t sell in big numbers, it is possible to make a big saving by buying used. The list of equipment is comparable with the R-Dynamic model in Jaguar E-Pace HSE trim.
- 300bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine
- 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels
Jaguar E-Pace Chequered Flag
Look out for the Jaguar E-Pace Chequered Flag model. Launched in 2019, this special edition was available in three colours: Photon Red, Corris Grey and Yulong White. It came with a host of special equipment.
- Unique badging
- 19-inch grey alloy wheels
- Chequered Flag treadplates
- Ebony grained leather with red stitching
- 10-way heated front seats
- Panoramic sunroof
- 12.3-inch digital instrument panel
- 10-inch touchscreen media system
- Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
Is a used Jaguar E-Pace a good buy?
Much like the Jaguar F-Pace, the Jaguar E-Pace is intended to be an upmarket car with high levels of comfort and plenty of technology inside, competing against the likes of the BMW X1 and stablemate the Range Rover Evoque in the small luxury SUV market.
One of the biggest strengths of the Jaguar E-Pace is its practicality. It might look small on the outside, but it offers enough interior space to rival the larger Audi Q5, rather than the smaller Audi Q3. It’s a genuine family car with good space in the back seats and a decent size boot.
Cabin space is excellent, even for adults travelling in the back, while the boot was designed to fit a set of golf clubs. It can also swallow a pushchair or up to six flight bags.
With strong engine options and genuine desirability, the Jaguar E-Pace makes an attractive used buy.
