Tested: 2018 Jaguar E-Pace P300 AWD R-Dynamic HSE

The wrong speedo

Have you ever brought a knife to a gunfight? A speedo to a beach party? If you can imagine the buttocks-clenching feeling of such faux-pas, you have a good idea what state I was in while testing the newest compact SUV from Jaguar.

Sprint Review: Jaguar XE 20d R-Sport

A new car, lots of information in short paragraphs.

What you need to know: The Jaguar XE is the latest attempt from this British manufacturer to stir up that German pot of 3-Series, A4 and C-Class. With newer technology and Jaguar’s stunning design cues, the XE should stand a better chance than its X-Type predecessor. If it weren’t for that annoying exchange rate…
