XXXXXXX LEFT N A V I G A T O R 02 NEWS ROLL OUT THE BARREL A 15.3 metre barrel roll sounds worthy of a new Guinness World Record? And so it was. This breathtaking leap into the air performed by the professional stunt driver Terry Grant represented the culmination of the launch of Land Rovers sister brand Jaguar's new E-PACE compact performance SUV in London this summer. At a packed presentation, Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum summed up the qualities of Jaguar’s latest addition to the PACE stable, “Established Jaguar design principles ensure the E-PACE is the sports car of its class. Our new compact performance SUV combines the interior space, connectivity and security that families expect with the kind of proportions, purity of design and performance not usually associated with such a practical vehicle.” Featuring lightweight suspension architecture, all-wheel drive, Active Driveline and torque vectoring technologies, the multitalented SUV takes its inspiration from the Jaguar sports car range. While Jaguar’s sporting tradition is a lofty enough benchmark, simply ticking those boxes was never going to be enough for Jaguar’s Chief Engineer of Vehicle Integrity Mike Cross, “E-PACE delivers exceptional drive dynamics, yet is refined and comfortable, and this was achieved with the compact Integral Link rear suspension and the semi-solid mounted front subframe. Here is an all-wheel drive compact performance SUV that has the precision and body control that is as rewarding for the driver as it is comfortable for the passengers.” Configurable Dynamics give the driver more control than ever before with individual settings for the throttle, automatic transmission, steering and, where fitted, the Adaptive Dynamics suspension system. Married to the new range of Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, Jaguar’s new E-PACE is a true driver’s car. Mobility is more than just getting from A to B. Today's mantra is digital connectivity, and the E-PACE is one of the most connected and intelligent vehicles in its class, perfectly equipped to deal with any situation you, the environment and your family can throw at it. (For the barrel roll we'd still recommend hiring Terry Grant.) Benefiting from the athletic DNA of Jaguar's sports car range, the new E-PACE resets the benchmarks in agility, performance and connectivity in the compact SUV class FIND OUT MORE To discover more about the new E-PACE, visit OFFICIAL FUEL CONSUMPTION FIGURES FOR THE E-PACE: in mpg (l/100km): urban 50.4 (5.6) - 29.1 (9.7); extra urban 67.3 (4.2) - 40.4 (7.0); combined 60.1 (4.7) - 35.3 (8.0); CO 2 emissions g/km: 124 - 181.
