The self-learning Smart Setting technology will apparent learn the driver's habits to learn about them and anticipate their needs. Jaguar's Adaptive Dynamics system, now available on every vehicle in its range bar the XJ, has Normal and Dynamic modes, with the former majoring on comfort and the latter focusing on agility.
No longer the buyers' engine of choice, diesel is now (to a point unfairly) demonised, so Jaguar is delivering a new, entry-level petrol option to the E-Pace range.
New updates for Tata Motors-owned Jaguar's E-Pace compact SUV launched previous year include "self-learning" Smart Settings technology, Adaptive Dynamics suspension and a new 200PS Ingenium petrol engine option. If trends and algorithms can be observed - the auto being started at a particular time each day, for example - it allows the vehicle to be tailored automatically to such conditions.
The Jaguar E-Pace is available to order now, priced from £28,500.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk buys 72,500 shares in electric car maker
The share purchases could be a signal to employees and Wall Street that he's still optimistic about the future of Tesla . He said most Tesla employees working at Home Depot will be offered a chance to move to Tesla retail locations.
Kim signs denuclearisation deal with Trump
President Trump described the nature of the summit as a "getting-to-know-you meeting plus" in remarks to reporters two weeks ago. The daylong summit will also include a working lunch and a larger meeting involving aides to both leaders, the White House said.
North Korea summit in Singapore
Past nuclear deals have crumbled over North Korea's reluctance to open its doors to outsiders. He thanked Singapore's organisation of the summit as if it was "their own family affair".
The adaptive suspension offered in the E-Pace uses continuously variable damper technology with a triple-tube design and externally mounted hydraulic valves.
Smart Settings is offered as part of the optional Connect Pro Pack which also adds a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, Pro Services and Navigation Pro - offering real-time traffic information, door to door routing from a smartphone, street view and parking availability. This, Jaguar said, provides greater scope to tune the balance between handling responses and body control. The setup scans vehicle movements every two milliseconds and adjusts the stiffness of the dampers for a more composed ride and more body control.
Jaguar says rough surfaces and off-road conditions are also sensed immediately, with the damping responding accordingly. Although the top speed has yet to be revealed, the 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine will propel the Jaguar to 60 miles per hour from a standing start in 7.7 seconds, and commentators expect the top speed to be somewhere around 132 miles per hour. All the new engines from the Coventry-based carmaker now comes equipped with particulate filters to achieve a higher standard of emission control.
Although adaptive suspension isn't new to Jaguar, it wasn't available with the E-Pace when it was launched past year. The highly efficient filters are neatly integrated to the after-treatment system and trap ultrafine particulates as the exhaust gases pass through. 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.
