Not 1 Jaguar SUV Is Recommended by Consumer Reports

Jaguar is one of the world’s most prestigious luxury brands, and for good reasons. Its vehicles are fun, fast, and fancy. But they aren’t highly reliable. That’s the main reason why Consumer Reports doesn’t recommend a single 2022 Jaguar SUV. Here’s a rundown of Jaguar’s current luxury SUV lineup.

2022 Jaguar E-Pace subcompact crossover SUV

Consumer Reports is quick to praise the 2022 Jaguar E-Pace’s body, engine, and exceptional handling. But reviewers say that isn’t enough to justify the price range of $41,800 to $51,000. 

The ride is far from limber and tends to jerk. Navigating curvy roads would doubtless be a joy, but most people drive on long, boring highways and city streets.

In addition, this Jaguar SUV’s predicted reliability and predicted owner satisfaction scores are below average. For those reasons, Consumer Reports declined to give the E-Pace a recommendation.

2022 Jaguar F-Pace compact crossover SUV

The 2022 Jaguar F-Pace is yet another example of the British automaker failing to live up to the high standards it has set with its sedans. Consumer Reports found the acceleration top-notch, but that’s where the postivies ended.

CR testers point out a long list of this Jaguar SUV’s flaws. They include an infotainment system that can’t quite live up to the luxury name, a lackluster interior, and cringe-worthy exhaust notes.

Like the E-Pace, the F-Pace also suffers from an overly stiff ride. The 20 mpg fuel rating also isn’t impressive for a subcompact crossover, especially in light of current gas prices.

Though the acceleration, braking, transmission, and front seat comfort earned top scores, the rest of the F-Pace leaves much to be desired.

2022 Jaguar I-Pace midsize crossover SUV

Tragically, the 2022 Jaguar I-Pace failed to earn a coveted CR Recommended checkmark. Still, this electric SUV received a Green Choice distinction for its zero greenhouse gas emissions.

Unlike the other Jaguar SUVs on this list, the I-Pace earns its luxury status. The I-Pace provides the dynamics that driving enthusiasts expect from a Jaguar and pleases green warriors who want to go electric.

So, what went wrong?

Well, any EV with a range of 234 miles isn’t great. Even the much cheaper Chevy Bolt has better electric range. In addition, the I-Pace takes a long time to charge, a dealbreaker for drivers on the fence about trading their gas guzzlers for EVs. 

Other cons include a relatively small cargo area and poor rear visibility. 

Consumer Reports hasn’t tested the 2022 Jaguar F-Type sports car and Jaguar XF luxury sedan

So far, Consumer Reports hasn’t tested the 2022 Jaguar F-Type and XF. It’s unclear if the review site will do so. 

Both of these vehicles boast the style and panache that have made the Jaguar brand iconic, and it would be a shame not to know how they measure up to their SUV siblings.

Still, Jaguar is new to the SUV segment, so the above three models’ poor rankings could be the result of growing pains, which wouldn’t apply to the XF and F-Type. We’ll have to wait and see if Consumer Reports tests the two cars.
