Ten years ago, Jaguar vehicles were the automotive equivalent of benchwarmers. You'd consider one only after nixing all your alternatives. Build quality was terrible, designs were neither original nor traditional, and resale values were abysmal. Today, though, the automaker has transformed itself from 2008's level. Following Tata Motors’ takeover that year, Jaguar introduced its best sedan of the new millennium: the XF. Soon after came the F-Type sports car, XE compact sedan, and F-Pace SUV, all helping erase the sins of yore. While it's not yet a volume player to the extent of luxury brands like BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar is poised for serious sales thievery.
The all-new E-Pace compact SUV might push Jaguar over the edge. Entering a teeming segment, the E-Pace may quickly become the brand’s best-selling model. That is, of course, unless it's lousy. Check out 10 things to know about the 2018 Jaguar E-PACE and decide for yourself whether Jaguar is ready to topple the premium car market.
