Safety

The Allroad’s pre-crash front seatbelts will tighten automatically in the event the vehicle detects an impending crash, improving protection against injury significantly. The E-Pace doesn’t offer pre-crash pretensioners.

For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Audi Allroad are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Jaguar E-Pace doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

The Allroad has standard Secondary Collision Brake Assist, which automatically apply the brakes in the event of a crash to help prevent secondary collisions and prevent further injuries. The E-Pace doesn’t offer a post collision braking system: in the event of a collision that triggers the airbags, more collisions are possible without the protection of airbags that may have already deployed.

Both the Allroad and the E-Pace have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front and rear seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, all-wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

For its top level performance in all IIHS frontal, side, rear impact and roof-crush tests, and its standard front crash prevention system, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the Allroad the rating of “Top Pick” for 2017, a rating granted to only 139 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The E-Pace has not been tested, yet.

Warranty

The Allroad’s corrosion warranty is 6 years longer than the E-Pace’s (12 vs. 6 years).

There are over 81 percent more Audi dealers than there are Jaguar dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Allroad’s warranty.

Reliability

The Audi Allroad’s engine uses a cast iron block for durability, while the E-Pace’s engines use an aluminum block. Aluminum engine blocks are much more prone to warp and crack at high temperatures than cast iron.

A reliable vehicle saves its owner time, money and trouble. Nobody wants to be stranded or have to be without a vehicle while it’s being repaired. Consumer Reports rates the Allroad’s reliability 50 points higher than the E-Pace.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Audi vehicles are better in initial quality than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Audi 25th in initial quality. With 43 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 30th.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Audi vehicles are more reliable than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Audi 13th in reliability, above the industry average. With 18 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 20th.

Fuel Economy and Range

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Audi Allroad uses regular unleaded gasoline (premium recommended for maximum performance). The E-Pace requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

Transmission

The Allroad offers a standard sequential manual gearbox (SMG). With no clutch pedal to worry about and a fully automatic mode, an SMG is much more efficient than a conventional automatic but just as easy to drive. The E-Pace doesn’t offer an SMG or a conventional manual transmission.

The Allroad’s launch control uses engine electronics to hold engine RPM’s precisely in order to provide the most stable and rapid acceleration possible, using all of the available traction. The E-Pace doesn’t offer launch control.

Brakes and Stopping

For better stopping power the Allroad’s standard brake rotors are larger than those on the E-Pace:

The Allroad’s standard front and rear disc brakes are vented to help dissipate heat for shorter stops with less fading. The rear discs on the E-Pace are solid, not vented.

The Allroad stops much shorter than the E-Pace:

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Allroad has larger tires than the E-Pace (245/45R18 vs. 225/65R17).

The Allroad’s tires provide better handling because they have a lower 45 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the E-Pace’s standard 65 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Allroad has standard 18-inch wheels. Smaller 17-inch wheels are standard on the E-Pace.

Suspension and Handling

The Allroad has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The E-Pace’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Allroad’s wheelbase is 5.3 inches longer than on the E-Pace (110.9 inches vs. 105.6 inches).

The Allroad Prestige handles at .85 G’s, while the E-Pace SE pulls only .83 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The Allroad Premium Plus executes Motor Trend’s “Figure-Eight” maneuver 2.1 seconds quicker than the E-Pace SE (26.3 seconds @ .69 average G’s vs. 28.4 seconds @ .6 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the Allroad’s turning circle is 1 foot tighter than the E-Pace’s (38.1 feet vs. 39.1 feet).

Chassis

The Audi Allroad may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 200 to 350 pounds less than the Jaguar E-Pace.

The Allroad is 5.6 inches narrower than the E-Pace, making the Allroad easier to handle and maneuver in traffic.

Passenger Space

The Allroad has 1.2 inches more front legroom and .6 inches more rear legroom than the E-Pace.

Cargo Capacity

The Allroad has a larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the E-Pace with its rear seat folded (58.5 vs. 52.7 cubic feet).

Servicing Ease

The engine in the Allroad is mounted longitudinally (North-South), instead of sideways, as in the E-Pace. This makes it easier to service and maintain, because the accessory belts are in front.

J.D. Power and Associates surveys of service recipients show that Audi service is better than Jaguar. J.D. Power ranks Audi third in service department satisfaction. With a 30% lower rating, Jaguar is ranked 15th.

Ergonomics

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Allroad to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. Heated windshield washer nozzles cost extra on the E-Pace.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Allroad has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The E-Pace doesn’t offer headlight washers.

To help drivers avoid possible obstacles, the Allroad has standard cornering lights to illuminate around corners when the turn signals are activated. The E-Pace doesn’t offer cornering lights.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Allroad has standard extendable sun visors. The E-Pace doesn’t offer extendable visors.
