Engine, Transmission, 0-60 mph, Top Speed & Performance
The new E-Pace comes with a 2.0 Litre turbocharged four cylinder engine with the base P250 variant 246 hp and the top spec P300 variant which makes a good 296 hp with a short hybrid system. Both are paired with a nine speed automatic transmission which makes some good exhaust sounds and can blast off from 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 135 mph.
And the performance that it delivers is kind of what you expect from a mid size crossover with a turbo four, smooth and tacky with good cornering grip and stability over any imperfect surface, thanks to its good dampers, torque vectoring differential and standard all wheel drive and results in a playful and precise hanging and accurate steering feedback with ample amount of power delivery to make its driving experience more joyful and as a Jaguar it really does that very well.
