Jaguar's brand new SUV would come up with an E-Pace

Last week we brought you early USA pricing and specification details for the 2018 Jaguar E-PACE range.

Now for the company's new E-Pace compact crossover there are naturally things to jump over and set another Guinness world record in order for us to notice it (because let's face it, it looks a lot more ordinary than the F-Pace...) and bask in its barrel-rolling aptitude.

It's just 48 hours since the new Jaguar E-Pace was revealed, but Jaguar are wasting no time reaching out to buyers, with the E-Pace configurator already live on Jaguar's website. The stunt was part of the James Bond classic "The Man with the Golden Gun" and was here, was performed by a professional stunt driver Terry Grant.

The record, for "the Furthest Barrel Roll in a Production Vehicle", was set during the car's global premiere at London's ExCel exhibition centre chosen for its roominess, where the auto needed a 160 meter run-up to make the 15 meter barrel-roll gap.

Well, the nail-biting Barrel Role fete by Jaguar E-Pace has been awarded one of the greatest accolades "The Guinness Book Record" but the launch of Jaguar E-Pace has proved the car's mettle in the segment.

Ian Callum, director of Design at Jaguar, called the E-Pace "the sports vehicle of its class". If you're thinking of cross-shopping this against the likes of an Audi Q3, BMW X1 or Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, you'll want to scope out this clip. For the non-First Edition models, you'll pay £50,710 for the P300 R-Dynamic HSE. The company hopes to sell selling more SUVs than sportscars and sedans combined.

The infotainment system in Jaguar E-Pace is central 10.2-inch touchscreen. The 297 bhp petrol variant is capable of hitting 0-100 kmph in 5.9 seconds.

When the 2018 Jaguar E-PACE lands locally in the second quarter of next year the range is expected to top out at about $84,000.
