2021 Jaguar E-Pace facelift spied

The updated Jaguar E-Pace has been spied fanging around the Nürburgring Nordschleife, and visually it won't be a huge change from today's car.

Even though this Jaguar E-Pace prototype is blanketed with camouflage wrap, it’s clear this facelift will be a minor nip and tuck rather than a radical reconstruction.

We can see it will have redesigned faux air intakes at the front. Also likely are a subtly revamped bumper design and possibly a new grille.

Although this car doesn’t sport new headlight and tail-light graphics, Jaguar may add these before launch.

The interior hasn’t been spied yet, but if the recent facelifts for the XE, XF and F-Pace are anything to go by, the E-Pace should be available with a digital instrumentation screen and the company’s latest 11.4-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen infotainment system.

As before, under the skin E-Pace continues to use a front- and all-wheel drive platform shared with the previous generation Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport.

In addition to a revised 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, the E-Pace may also receive a 227kW 1.5-litre plug-in hybrid setup like the Evoque at some point down the track.

Launched in 2017, the E-Pace has sold reasonably. In 2019, 1029 were sold in Australia, and the E-Pace accounted for 6.3 per cent of the small SUV market over $40,000.

It trails the segment leading Volvo XC40 (2858), BMW X1 (2847) and Mercedes-Benz GLA (2562) by some distance, as well as the Lexus UX (1931) and BMW X2 (1303).

We expect the revised E-Pace will have its global launch either late this year or early in 2021.
