Safety

The F-Pace has a standard Whiplash Reduction System, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Whiplash Reduction System moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The SQ5 doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

The F-Pace’s driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The SQ5 doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the F-Pace and the SQ5 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 blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

Warranty

The F-Pace comes with a full 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty, which covers the entire truck and includes 24-hour roadside assistance. The SQ5’s 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty expires 1 year and 10,000 miles sooner.

Jaguar pays for scheduled maintenance on the F-Pace for 5 years and 60,000 miles. Jaguar will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance. Audi only pays for the first scheduled maintenance visit on the SQ5.

Motor Trend

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the SQ5 (265/40R22 vs. 255/45R20).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio offers optional 22-inch wheels. The SQ5’s largest wheels are only 21-inches.

Suspension and Handling

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the F-Pace’s wheelbase is 1.9 inches longer than on the SQ5 (113.1 inches vs. 111.2 inches).

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the F-Pace is .9 inches wider in the front and 1.7 inches wider in the rear than the track on the SQ5.

Chassis

The Jaguar F-Pace may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs up to about 450 pounds less than the Audi SQ5.

Cargo Capacity

The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the SQ5 with its rear seat up (33.5 vs. 25.1 cubic feet). The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the SQ5 with its rear seat folded (63.5 vs. 53.1 cubic feet).

Towing

The F-Pace’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the SQ5’s (5290 vs. 4400 pounds).

Ergonomics

The F-Pace has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The SQ5 doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The F-Pace (except Base)’s standard easy entry system raises the steering wheel when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The SQ5 doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the F-Pace has a standard rear fixed intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the SQ5 only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the F-Pace (except Base/Premium) offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The SQ5 doesn’t offer cornering lights.

The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S’ optional Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The SQ5 doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
