Defining the future of luxury: brand new Jaguar E-PACE is unveiled at MYNM showrooms in Saudi Arabia

Mohammed Yousef Naghi Motors, the exclusive retailer for Jaguar Land Rover vehicles in Saudi Arabia, has announced the arrival of the new Jaguar E-PACE 21MY at its showrooms.

The new Jaguar E-PACE 21MY boasts an enhanced exterior, and featuring  a modern Pivi Pro infotainment system and all-new connected technologies, the vehicle is supported by Jaguar’s latest Electronic Vehicle architecture to ensure the very best and most up-to-date performance. The E-PACE’s exterior enhancements deliver a more dynamic appearance, while the new interior benefits from luxurious crafted materials.

“The new Jaguar E-PACE 21MY showcases Jaguar’s commitment to providing its customers with exceptional craftsmanship and cutting-edge luxury. The vehicle’s inventive interior, refreshed exterior and upgraded connectivity places greater focus on the enhancement of driver experience. The new E-PACE is a testament to the brand’s attention to detail and dedication to continuously providing improved luxury and comfort,” said Andre Bonthuys, Managing Director of Mohammed Yousuf Naghi Motors Jaguar Land Rover.

 

Enhanced exterior

The exterior design enhancements give Jaguar’s compact performance SUV a more assertive stance and luxurious appearance. At the front the changes include a revised lower aperture incorporating a distinctive blade element. A new grille mesh design with diamond detailing is influenced by the Jaguar heritage logo and features a contemporary Noble Chrome finish, while new side fender vents feature the iconic Leaper emblem.

New all-LED headlights feature ‘Double J’ Daytime Running Light (DRL) signatures, which are available with optional Pixel LED technology, delivering increased resolution and brightness. Adaptive Driving Beam capability evaluates the road ahead and automatically adapts the high beam pattern by selecting different LED segments to mask oncoming traffic or traffic signs, to optimise visibility and reduce glare without distracting other drivers.  

Beautifully crafted interior

The interior of the new E-PACE features heightened luxury, enhanced connectivity and greater refinement.

At the heart of the new interior is the integrated 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen at the centre of the dashboard, which controls the new Pivi Pro infotainment system. Chemically strengthened, the glass screen features two coatings; one which is anti-glare and a second which resists fingerprints.

Julian Thomson, Design Director, Jaguar said: “New E-PACE features key design elements from across the Jaguar family, enhancing the exterior and introducing beautiful new details to the interior. All this ensures the latest model has a more grown-up appeal while retaining its compact performance SUV sensibilities.”

The new Drive Selector – just one of the many beautiful details – is lower and wider and features an upper section finished with ‘cricket-ball’ stitching, the lower part being made of precision-engineered metal for enhanced tactility.

The new engine line-up comprises:

Petrol

200PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, nine-speed automatic, AWD

249PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, nine-speed automatic, AWD

The latest powertrain features a selection of advanced engine technologies to enhance refinement and efficiency, including high strength steel pistons for the first time. They reduce friction while a variable vane turbocharger and the new 2,500 bar piezo common rail injection system, which delivers even finer control of fuel delivered into the cylinders, also optimise efficiency.

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine is available in three power outputs. The 200PS version produces 320Nm of torque and will complete 0-60mph in up to 8.0 seconds (0-100km/h in 8.5 seconds), while the 249PS, 365Nm powertrain will complete the same 0-60mph benchmark in up to 7.0 seconds

(0-100km/h in 7.5 seconds).

 

Chassis and transmission

Significant updates to the body architecture of the new E-PACE deliver enhanced dynamics, comfort and convenience. The new Premium Transverse Architecture features new engine mounts, which contribute to an improvement in throttle response.  

The new architecture also provides improved front suspension attachment point stiffness, delivering a more comfortable ride while retaining trademark Jaguar agility. The structure reduces vibration and harshness across the whole cabin, making it a tranquil sanctuary for all occupants, while also reducing cabin noise for enhanced comfort and refinement.

All E-PACE models have Jaguar Drive Control featuring Comfort, Eco, Rain-Ice-Snow (on FWD models) and Dynamic modes, which can be chosen manually by the driver based on the road conditions. The settings, selected through a toggle switch next to the all-new Drive Selector, adapt the E-PACE’s steering, transmission, throttle and (when specified) Adaptive Damping calibrations.

 

Cutting-edge connected technologies

The new E-PACE features Jaguar’s advanced Electronic Vehicle Architecture, dubbed EVA 2.0, which supports a range of new technologies to ensure the vehicle is always connected and always up to date.

The latest Pivi Pro infotainment technology is accessed through a new curved glass

11.4-inch HD touchscreen. Key benefits include enhanced clarity – the screen is three times brighter and 48% larger than the previous screen – and the simplified menu structures allow drivers to access or view up to 90 per cent of common tasks from the homescreen in two taps or less.

 

Complementing the central 11.4-inch touchscreen is the latest 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display with enhanced graphics and a configurable layout which can show full screen navigation mapping with turn-by-turn instructions, digital dials, media, contact list or infotainment details. The interactive driver display works in conjunction with the latest generation full colour TFT Head-up Display which is brighter, with a larger information area and enhanced resolution.

 

 

The latest 3D Surround Camera technology delivers advanced 3D functionality using the latest camera technology to provide more detail and a choice of real-time viewing options when manoeuvring the vehicle.

 

Now available to order in Saudi Arabia, the new E-PACE builds on and enhances Jaguar’s reputation for engineering ingenuity across the region. It is available for viewing, test drives, and to order at MYNM Jaguar showrooms in Saudi Arabia.
