The Jaguar E-Pace Just Isn't Special Enough For Its Price

The Jaguar E-Pace Just Isn't Special Enough For Its Price

In the show this week, we discuss Romain Grosjean's horrific accident during the Bahrain GP, as well as Peugeot's new sole distributors in Malaysia - Berjaya Auto Alliance. In our car launches, we touch on the arrival of the BMW M3 and M4, a bespoke Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, and a very exciting Toyota GR Yaris.


Our car review looks at the 2020 Jaguar E-Pace. At first glance, it's a fantastic looking crossover that's certainly beautiful to look at, very well built and athletic to drive. The E-Pace, however, is almost RM150,000 more expensive than its competitors and even in spite of its beauty, it just doesn't stand out enough to warrant such a hefty premium.
