Safety

Both the F-Pace and the X5 have standard driver and passenger frontal 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, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, 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 X5’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 X5 (5/60,000 vs. 3/36,000).

Engine

The F-Pace SVR’s 5.0 supercharged V8 produces 94 more horsepower (550 vs. 456) and 23 lbs.-ft. more torque (502 vs. 479) than the X5 xDrive50i’s optional 4.4 turbo V8.

Fuel Economy and Range

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace 20d gets better fuel mileage than the X5 xDrive40i (26 city/33 hwy vs. 20 city/26 hwy).

Tires and Wheels

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 X5, 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 better maneuverability, the F-Pace’s turning circle is 3.4 feet tighter than the X5’s (38 feet vs. 41.4 feet).

Chassis

The Jaguar F-Pace may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 800 to 950 pounds less than the BMW X5.

The F-Pace is 8 inches shorter than the X5, making the F-Pace easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The design of the Jaguar F-Pace amounts to more than styling. The F-Pace has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .36 Cd. That is lower than the X5 (.36 to .38). A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the F-Pace get better fuel mileage.

Cargo Capacity

The F-Pace’s liftgate lifts up in one piece, completely out of the way of loading and unloading, while sheltering the cargo loading area. The X5’s tailgate’s top part raises up, but the bottom part lowers, getting in the way of loading and making an uneven surface for sliding cargo.

Payload

The F-Pace has a much higher standard payload capacity than the X5 (1510 vs. 849 lbs.).

The F-Pace has a much higher maximum payload capacity than the X5 (1510 vs. 871 lbs.).

Ergonomics

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 X5 doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.
