Safety

For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Audi Allroad have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision and force limiters to limit the pressure the belts will exert on the passengers. The Jaguar F-Pace doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

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 F-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 F-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 F-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.

Compared to metal, the Allroad’s plastic fuel tank can withstand harder, more intrusive impacts without leaking; this decreases the possibility of fire. The Jaguar F-Pace has a metal gas tank.

Both the Allroad and the F-Pace have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, 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 F-Pace has not been tested, yet.

Warranty

The Allroad’s corrosion warranty is 6 years longer than the F-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 F-Pace’s engines use an aluminum block. Aluminum engine blocks are much more prone to warp and crack at high temperatures than cast iron.

To reliably power the ignition and other systems and to recharge the battery, the Allroad has a standard 150-amp alternator. The F-Pace’s 130-amp alternator isn’t as powerful.

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 40 points higher than the F-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 F-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 F-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 F-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 F-Pace:

Motor Trend

Tires and Wheels

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 F-Pace Base’s standard 60 series tires.

Suspension and Handling

The Allroad Premium Plus executes Motor Trend’s “Figure-Eight” maneuver quicker than the F-Pace R-Sport (26.3 seconds @ .69 average G’s vs. 26.8 seconds @ .67 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the Allroad has a greater minimum ground clearance than the F-Pace SVR (6.5 vs. 5.9 inches), allowing the Allroad to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The Allroad’s minimum ground clearance is .2 inch higher than on the F-Pace (6.5 vs. 6.3 inches).

Chassis

The Allroad is 9 inches narrower than the F-Pace, making the Allroad easier to handle and maneuver in traffic.

The design of the Audi Allroad amounts to more than styling. The Allroad has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .32 Cd. That is significantly lower than the F-Pace (.36) and many sports cars. A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the Allroad get better fuel mileage.

Passenger Space

The Allroad has 1.3 inches more front headroom and 1 inch more front legroom than the F-Pace.

Cargo Capacity

A low lift-over cargo design makes loading and unloading the Allroad easier. The Allroad’s cargo lift-over height is 26.1 inches, while the F-Pace’s liftover is 30.5 inches.

Servicing Ease

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

The Allroad has a standard locking fuel door with a remote release located convenient to the driver. A locking fuel door helps prevent vandalism, such as sugar in the tank and fuel theft. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a locking fuel door.

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 F-Pace.

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 F-Pace doesn’t offer extendable visors.
