Upgrades include gloss-black exterior trim and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

A new R-Dynamic Black Edition trim has been added to the Jaguar E-Pace line-up, with changes to the small SUV’s exterior design and enhanced connectivity. 

The R-Dynamic Black Edition starts from £40,945 and is based on R-Dynamic S trim. It receives black Jaguar badging and a gloss-black finish to its side vents, mirror caps, front bumper and front grille.

The E-Pace also gains a new exterior paint colour, Ostuni White, along with satin-grey 19in alloy wheels, red brake calipers, privacy glass and a panoramic roof. 

“The new R-Dynamic Black Edition elevates the compact SUV’s dynamic design and visual appeal with a bespoke choice of exterior elements,” Jaguar said. 

Inside, an 11.4in infotainment touchscreen is standard (up from and Jaguar promises greater levels of refinement, comfort and technology. 

The British firm has also increased levels of connectivity, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available soon as standard or through an over-the-air software update for models equipped with the Pivi Pro infotainment system. 

The R-Dynamic Black Edition is available with a choice of 2.0-litre petrol-electric plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and mild-hybrid (MHEV) engines. The D165 and D200 diesels and P200 petrol offer nine-speed automatic transmissions and four-wheel drive. 

The E-Pace received a facelift last year, with a new platform bringing MHEV and PHEV compatibility. Jaguar claimed the new underpinnings improved the car's handling, ride and overall refinement.

Surely this is an all new car as is it has a new chassis? Either that or the most comprehensive but understated facelift in history?

Still, a good looking car, and nicer than the ubiquitous German product.

Can we just have an edition with even panel gaps? Next time you see one these, take a look at how poorly misaligned the leading edge of the bonnet is against the front bumper. Not too sure how they can leave the factory like that, let alone get into the hands of a customer.
