Safety

Both the F-Pace and AMG GLE 43 Coupe 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 AMG GLE 43 Coupe’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.

To help make backing safer, the F-Pace (except Base)’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the F-Pace and the AMG GLE 43 Coupe 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, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, available blind spot warning systems and around view monitors.

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 AMG GLE 43 Coupe’s 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty expires 1 year and 10,000 miles sooner.

The F-Pace’s corrosion warranty is 1 year longer than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe’s (6 vs. 5 years).

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. Mercedes doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the AMG GLE 43 Coupe.

Engine

The F-Pace SVR’s standard 5.0 supercharged V8 produces 165 more horsepower (550 vs. 385) and 118 lbs.-ft. more torque (502 vs. 384) than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe’s 3.0 turbo V6.

Fuel Economy and Range

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace 20d gets better fuel mileage than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe (26 city/33 hwy vs. 17 city/22 hwy).

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace S gets better fuel mileage than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe (18 city/23 hwy vs. 17 city/22 hwy).

Regenerative brakes improve the F-Pace’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

Brakes and Stopping

For better stopping power the F-Pace SVR’s front brake rotors are larger than those on the AMG GLE 43 Coupe:

 

F-Pace SVR

AMG GLE 43

Front Rotors

15.6 inches

14.8 inches

Rear Rotors

15.6 inches

13.6 inches

Suspension and Handling

For better maneuverability, the F-Pace’s turning circle is .7 feet tighter than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe’s (38 feet vs. 38.7 feet).

Chassis

The Jaguar F-Pace may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 550 to 1100 pounds less than the Mercedes AMG GLE 43 Coupe.

The F-Pace is 6.3 inches shorter than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe, making the F-Pace easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Cargo Capacity

The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe with its rear seat up (33.5 vs. 23 cubic feet). The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe with its rear seat folded (63.5 vs. 60.7 cubic feet).

Pressing a switch automatically lowers the F-Pace’s optional rear seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the F-Pace’s available liftgate can be opened and closed just by kicking your foot under the back bumper, leaving your hands completely free. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its liftgate, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

Ergonomics

The F-Pace (except Base/Premium) offers an available heads-up display that projects speed and other key instrumentation readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the F-Pace has a standard rear wiper. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer a rear wiper.
