Safety

Both the F-Pace and X2 have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The F-Pace has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The X2’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

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 X2 doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the F-Pace. But it costs extra on the X2.

The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S offers an optional Surround Camera System to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The X2 only offers a rear monitor and front and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the sides.

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 X2 doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the F-Pace and the X2 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, available blind spot warning systems 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 X2’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 2 years and 24,000 miles longer than BMW pays for maintenance for the X2 (5/60,000 vs. 3/36,000).

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the X2 (255/60R18 vs. 225/50R18). The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the X2 (265/40R22 vs. 225/50R18).

The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the X2’s optional 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio offers optional 22-inch wheels. The X2’s largest wheels are only 20-inches.

The F-Pace offers an optional full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the X2, it requires you to depend on a temporary spare or run-flat tires, either of which has mileage and speed limitations.

Suspension and Handling

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the F-Pace’s wheelbase is 8 inches longer than on the X2 (113.1 inches vs. 105.1 inches).

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the F-Pace is 3 inches wider in the front and 3.6 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the X2.

The F-Pace executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.1 seconds quicker than the X2 xDrive28i (25.9 seconds @ .69 average G’s vs. 27 seconds @ .66 average G’s).

Chassis

As tested by Car and Driver while cruising at 70 MPH, the interior of the F-Pace S is quieter than the X2 xDrive28i (69 vs. 72 dB).

Passenger Space

The F-Pace has 2.1 inches more front shoulder room, .4 inches more rear headroom, .5 inches more rear legroom and 1.9 inches more rear shoulder room than the X2.

Cargo Capacity

The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the X2 with its rear seat up (33.5 vs. 21.6 cubic feet). The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the X2 with its rear seat folded (63.5 vs. 50.1 cubic feet).

The F-Pace’s cargo area is larger than the X2’s in every dimension:

Payload and Towing

The F-Pace has a 5290 lbs. towing capacity. The X2 has no towing capacity.

The F-Pace has a much higher standard payload capacity than the X2 (1510 vs. 899 lbs.).

Servicing Ease

The engine in the F-Pace is mounted longitudinally (North-South), instead of sideways, as in the X2. This makes it easier to service and maintain, because the accessory belts are in front.

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 X2 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 X2 doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the F-Pace to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The X2 doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

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 X2 only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

The X2’s cornering lamps activate a lamp on the front corner when the turn signal is activated. The F-Pace (except Base/Premium)’s optional adaptive cornering lights turn the actual headlight unit up to several degrees, depending on steering wheel angle and vehicle speed. This lights a significant distance into corners at any speed.

Both the F-Pace and the X2 offer optional heated front seats. The F-Pace also offers optional heated rear seats to keep those passengers extremely comfortable in the winter. Heated rear seats aren’t available in the X2.

Optional air-conditioned seats in the F-Pace (except Base/Premium) keep the driver and front passenger comfortable and take the sting out of hot seats in summer. The X2 doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats.
