Reliability & safety Rating

4.5 out of 5

Results from our 2020 Driver Power satisfaction survey show reliability is a concern for Jaguar owners, but that they’re generally happy customers. Euro NCAP gave the E-Pace the full five stars after assessing the car's safety in late 2017.

Jaguar E-Pace reliability

The E-Pace is a relatively new car, so we don’t have any information on its reliability yet, but we do know that the 2.0-litre diesel and petrol engines have already been tried and tested elsewhere. In our 2020 Driver Power brand satisfaction survey, Jaguar came in 12th place out of 30 manufacturers, which is a good result considering 25.6% of owners reported at least one fault within the first year of owning their cars. Jaguar owners generally love their cars’ performance, in-car technology and ease of driving, and the E-Pace adds to those qualities by being very practical, too.


The E-Pace was awarded five stars by Euro NCAP in late 2017. The car didn't get the highest score in its class in any one category, but its average score across all four was impressive. It got an 86% score in the adult occupant protection category, 87% in the child occupant protection category, 77% for pedestrian protection and 72% for safety assistance.

Standard safety kit includes emergency braking, a driver tiredness monitor, lane-keeping assistance and front and rear parking sensors. There's a Drive Pack also available, which is standard on some of the higher-spec models and consists of blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control with queue assistance and high-speed emergency braking.
