Safety

The X4’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.

Over 200 people are killed each year when backed over by motor vehicles. The X4 offers optional Active Park Distance Control which use rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The F-Pace doesn’t offer backup collision prevention brakes.

Both the X4 and the F-Pace have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front 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, driver alert monitors, available lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

Warranty

The X4’s corrosion warranty is 6 years longer than the F-Pace’s (12 vs. 6 years).

There are over 2 times as many BMW dealers as there are Jaguar dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the X4’s warranty.

Tires and Wheels

The X4’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 50 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the F-Pace Base’s standard 60 series tires. The X4 M40i’s optional 275/35R21 rear tires have a lower 35 series profile than the F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio’s optional 40 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the X4 has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the F-Pace Base.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the X4 can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The F-Pace doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

Suspension and Handling

The X4 M40i handles at .89 G’s, while the F-Pace S pulls only .85 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The X4 M40i executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.2 seconds quicker than the F-Pace R-Sport (25.6 seconds @ .73 average G’s vs. 26.8 seconds @ .67 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the X4 has a 2.1 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the F-Pace SVR (8 vs. 5.9 inches), allowing the X4 to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The X4’s minimum ground clearance is 1.7 inches higher than on the F-Pace (8 vs. 6.3 inches).

Chassis

The X4 is 5.6 inches narrower on average than the F-Pace, making the X4 easier to handle and maneuver in traffic.

The design of the BMW X4 amounts to more than styling. The X4 has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .3 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 X4 get better fuel mileage.

Passenger Space

The X4 has 1.2 inches more front headroom, .4 inches more front legroom and .2 inches more rear shoulder room than the F-Pace.

Servicing Ease

J.D. Power and Associates surveys of service recipients show that BMW service is better than Jaguar. J.D. Power ranks BMW 8th in service department satisfaction (above the industry average). With a 16% lower rating, Jaguar is ranked 15th.
