The E-Pace is Jaguar’s first compact SUV, and it has made quite the impression. Designed for drivers who prefer the amenities of a luxury SUV in a package that is the right size. It also offers impressive performance with turbocharged powertrains and an advanced all-wheel drive system. The E-Pace also features unique styling that’s sporty and elegant.
There is much more to learn about the E-Pace. Here, we compare it to the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA.
The 2021 Jaguar E-Pace sets itself apart
Both vehicles have several close similarities, but there is one aspect that is obviously different: Style. Jaguar does not fail to set the E-Pace apart from its competitor with a refined design that is recognizably Jaguar. It is easy to forget the compact size of the E-Pace because it has so many unique design characteristics. The GLA would be difficult to identify without the logo.
Also, the E-Pace is acclaimed for its excellent handling and advanced torque vectoring. Dampers adjust the suspension to provide the optimum balance between comfort, refinement and agility. The E-Pace does this so well that it provides a much better driving experience than the GLA when both are compared.
The 2021 Jaguar E-Pace delivers solid standard power
The E-Pace features two exciting powertrains that deliver a performance range that satisfies many driving habits. The E-Pace SE includes the P250 engine, a turbocharged 2.0-litre that outputs 246 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. With the light weight of the vehicle, this performance results in a maximum speed of 229 km/h. The E-Pace 300 Sport features the P300 engine, offering 296 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA also includes a turbocharged 2.0-litre, but it develops less horsepower (221) and torque (258). This makes a difference, especially when the vehicle is packed for a weekend away. The E-Pace SE provides an extra boost. The GLA offers two AMG trims, with one that is similar in output to the E-Pace 300 and another that is the most expensive vehicle in this comparison.
