Safety

Both the F-Pace and AMG GLE 63 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 63’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 63 doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the F-Pace and the AMG GLE 63 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 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 63’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 63’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 63.

Fuel Economy and Range

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace 20d gets better fuel mileage than the AMG GLE 63 S (26 city/33 hwy vs. 14 city/18 hwy).

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace SVR gets better fuel mileage than the X6 M (16 city/22 hwy vs. 14 city/19 hwy).

Regenerative brakes improve the F-Pace’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The AMG GLE 63 doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

Transmission

An eight-speed automatic is standard on the Jaguar F-Pace, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only a seven-speed automatic is available for the AMG GLE 63.

Brakes and Stopping

Motor Trend

Suspension and Handling

For better maneuverability, the F-Pace’s turning circle is .7 feet tighter than the AMG GLE 63’s (38 feet vs. 38.7 feet).

Chassis

The Jaguar F-Pace may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 1000 to 1350 pounds less than the Mercedes AMG GLE 63.

The F-Pace is 4.7 inches shorter than the AMG GLE 63 Coupe, making the F-Pace easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

As tested by Car and Driver, the interior of the F-Pace S is quieter than the AMG GLE 63 S Coupe:

Cargo Capacity

The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the AMG GLE 63 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 63 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 63 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 63 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 63 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 63 Coupe doesn’t offer a rear wiper.
