Jaguar’s E-Pace and F-Pace are the firm’s two core SUV models. Occupying different areas of the market, they’re a duo which have been packed full of Jaguar’s latest technology as well as its most efficient engines. However, there’s still that sporty flavour that you might expect from a Jaguar.
But how do they differ and which one should you be looking at? Here, we explain some of the key differences.
Size is one of the key ways of differentiating the E-Pace and F-Pace. The former is the ‘baby’ of the range, while the latter is a full-size SUV designed for drivers who need the best possible levels of space.
For reference, the E-Pace measures 4,395mm in length and 2,088mm in width the mirrors out, while the F-Pace is 4,747mm long and 2,175 wide.
As you might expect with cars of differing sizes, you’re getting vastly different boots, too. You’re getting 755 litres of boot space with the rear seats in place in the F-Pace, rising to 1,804 litres if you fold down the second row of seats.
But the E-Pace still does well with its 601-litre boot, which increases to 1,386 litres when those rear seats are folded flat.
As we’ve touched upon, Jaguar has kitted both of these cars out with a variety of clean-running engines. All versions on the E-Pace get mild-hybrid technology for more efficient performance, with both petrol and diesel 2.0-litre engines available. There’s also a range-topping plug-in hybrid which can return up to 39 miles of electric-only range.
Again, there’s a similar level of variety with the F-Pace, albeit with the addition of a silky-smooth 3.0-litre turbocharged diesel in the D300 model. As with the E-Pace, you’ve also got the option of a plug-in hybrid modelwhich can bring up to 40 miles of electric range.
As you’d expect from Jaguar, there are a number of specification options available for both cars here. You’ve got sporty R-Dynamic trim levels available on both, while the F-Pace also benefits from dynamic 400 Sport spec too.
However, one thing you can’t get with the smaller E-Pace is an SVR version. On the F-Pace, this brings a fearsome supercharged V8 into the equation, as well as a host of mechanical upgrades designed to make the SUV even more capable.
Jaguar has recently introduced its brand-new technology setup in both the E-Pace and F-Pace, meaning that you’re getting a high-quality experience whichever model you opt for.
The F-Pace uses JLR’s Pivi Pro system which is both easy to use and also has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto included as standard. Plus, you can use Amazon Alexa to control various elements of the car with your voice.
The E-Pace gets the Pivi Pro system too and it’s a big improvement over previous-generation models.
