But the British luxury manufacturer isn't sitting on its laurels with the E-Pace as it's already enhancing the popular luxury crossover by broadening its range of engines and adding adaptive suspension and AI tech to the menu. It's now even more appealing and affordable with a raft of new features available. We're also told the system learns your habits over time (we're not sure whether we like this or not...), and can then change settings based on time, location and even weather.

The E-Pace compact SUV is already proving to be a considerable success for Jaguar.

Jaguar has updated the all-new E-Pace with a "self-learning" Smart Settings technology and an Adaptive Dynamics suspension set-up.

Smart Settings recognises the car's driver based on a key fob and smartphone Bluetooth signal, and adjusts the seat, climate and infotainment system based on the driver's normal preferences.

It also comes with a 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot, Pro Services, and Navigation Pro - offering real-time traffic information, door-to-door routing from your smartphone, street view and parking availability.

Jaguar now offers the E-Pace with its UK-made 200PS I4 turbocharged Ingenium petrol engine which achieves the 0-60mph sprint in a claimed 7.7sec, fuel economy of 34.4 mpg (8.2 l/100km) and Carbon dioxide emissions of 186g/km. The new technology is scrounged from the all-electric I-Pace. The setup scans vehicle movements every two milliseconds and adjusts the stiffness of the dampers for a more composed ride and more body control. Normal mode focuses on comfort while Dynamic is calibrated to provide increased body control and road holding.

The new Ingenium four-cylinder turbo petrol produces 147kW of power, good for a claimed 7.7-second sprint to 60mph (97km/h) and 34.4mpg (8.2L/100km) on the combined cycle. In a petrol engine, under normal driving conditions, the trapped soot will be oxidised into Carbon dioxide and the filter regenerated whenever the driver lifts off the accelerator, Jaguar said.

The new technology joins the line up alongside Adaptive Dynamics, a system which alters the suspension settings to suit differing road surfaces and driving styles.
