Jaguar E PACE Gets Adaptive Suspension And Ingenium Petrol Engine

Jaguar has revealed new tech upgrades for its E-Pace small SUV, which will see the vehicle equipped with artificial intelligence that learns your preferences and adapts the auto accordingly.

As part of the booming luxury small SUV market, the E-Pace is expected to become Jaguar's best-selling model. But times have changed - rather quickly.

When fitted with the new 2.0-litre turbocharged Ingenium engine, the E-Pace will be priced from £33,260 and will hit 60mph in 7.7 seconds. There's a new engine - a 200bhp four-cylinder petrol, giving 0-60mph in 7.7 seconds, 34.4mpg and 186g/km of Carbon dioxide - and Jag's "Adaptive Dynamics" continuously variable dampers now appear on the options list. That's less economical than its more powerful siblings, but that's down to the changeover to WLTP testing figures, so you can be sure the more powerful options will see their economy figures revised shortly.

All E-Pace engines are now equipped with particulate filters to reduce harmful emissions.

Other engines already available in the E-Pace include 250PS and 300PS versions of the same 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine, as well as a 2.0-litre diesel with 150, 180 or 240PS. These have recently made their debut on the electric I-Pace SUV, and will learn the driver's habits to make their life easier.

Drunk? Uber can tell by way you hold phone
At least that's according to a patent application spotted by CNN with the title "predicting user state using machine learning". Uber's planned AI feature could, in theory, let drivers easily scout neighborhoods to find drunken passengers for this goal .

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. The Smart System over time can also tailor- make the settings depending on time, location, weather and behaviour patterns.

The Intelligent Phone Reminder function will also tell the driver if they forget their smartphone, while the Predictive Call List learns patterns of phone use to cue up popular contacts at the appropriate time. The setup scans vehicle movements every two milliseconds and adjusts the stiffness of the dampers for a more composed ride and more body control. The filters are integrated into the after-treatment system and trap ultrafine particulates as the exhaust gases pass through.

And if it's a bit cold outside, the E-Pace will crank up the heater. 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.

Another addition to the E-Pace range is adaptive suspension.
