New Jaguar E-PACE: Ready to roar in Brunei

THE latest addition to the Jaguar family, the new E-PACE is expected to land in Brunei in April.

Possessing the true DNA of a Jaguar and designed to be beautiful, fun and clever, the E-PACE looks set to excite everyone and create desirable havoc to ‘everyday-ers’ and ‘play-it-safers’.

Being smaller than the Jaguar F-PACE, it is understandably cheaper as well. Revealed world-wide at ExCeL in London in July 2017 with a dramatic, bona-fide 270 degree corkscrew-like ‘barrel roll’ 15.3 metres through the air and landing cleanly on all four wheels, the new Jaguar SUV set a Guinness World Record for the furthest barrel roll in a production vehicle.

None of these would be possible without the talented stunt driver Terry Grant and of course, the agile and precise New Jaguar E-PACE.

Aesthetically, the exterior design is inspired by the Jaguar F-TYPE sports car and characterised by the distinctive Jaguar grille, muscular proportions, short overhangs and powerful haunches that give the E-PACE a bold and purposeful stance, instantly communicating dynamic agility.

The Jaguar sports car DNA is also evident in the fast sweep of the roofline and the distinctive side window graphic.
