Practicality & boot space Rating

4.5 out of 5

The E-Pace is targeted at buyers looking for a combination of performance and luxury from their small SUV, but it also happens to be a very practical proposition. There’s plenty of space inside the car, and that goes for passengers, storage and luggage alike.

Jaguar E-Pace interior space and storage

The E-Pace is deceptively spacious, feeling more like an Audi Q5 on the inside than an Audi Q3. Four adults over six feet tall will be able to travel together perfectly comfortably, and those in the back won’t be short of headroom, even with the panoramic glass roof fitted. As a feature on other cars, the panoramic roof can often make the car feel slightly cramped in the back seats, so the fact it doesn’t in the E-Pace is testament to the space on offer.

Storage is also excellent, with plenty of cubbies dotted around the cabin and deep bins in the doors. The central storage cubby between the two front seats is enormous.

Boot space

The excellent passenger space doesn’t come at the expense of boot space, but as Jaguar has changed the way it measures boot space, precise numbers aren't yet available. The Audi Q3 offers 427 litres, while the five-door Range Rover Evoque manages 575 litres. Fold the standard 60:40 rear seats down and there's around 1,200 litres of cargo space.

An optional gesture-controlled powered tailgate (standard on the top-of-the-range model) allows you to open the boot by waving your foot under the rear bumper, which is useful if your hands are full.

Towing

Every E-Pace can tow a braked trailer weighing at least 1,600kg, including the PHEV. This should be enough to haul most caravans and even a small horsebox, with tow bars available as optional extras. If you need to tow more, the D200 can haul up to 2,000kg.. It’s quite a bit less than some rivals, though, with the Volvo XC60 able to haul up to 2,400kg.
