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