Both the F-Pace and Macan 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 Macan’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 Macan doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

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 Macan doesn’t offer a cross-path warning 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 Macan doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the F-Pace and the Macan 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, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, available blind spot warning systems and around view monitors.


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 Macan’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 4 years and 50,000 miles longer than Porsche pays for maintenance for the Macan (5/60,000 vs. 1/10,000).

The F-Pace’s 2.0 turbo diesel produces 44 lbs.-ft. more torque (317 vs. 273) than the Macan’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

Fuel Economy and Range

The F-Pace’s standard fuel tank has 1.9 gallons more fuel capacity than the Macan (21.7 vs. 19.8 gallons).


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 Macan.

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the Macan (255/60R18 vs. 235/60R18).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio offers optional 22-inch wheels. The Macan’s largest wheels are only 21-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 Macan, it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

Suspension and Handling

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the F-Pace’s wheelbase is 2.6 inches longer than on the Macan (113.1 inches vs. 110.5 inches).

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


The Jaguar F-Pace may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs up to about 250 pounds less than the Porsche Macan.

Passenger Space

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the F-Pace’s available rear seats recline. The Macan’s rear seats don’t recline.

Cargo Capacity

The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the Macan with its rear seat up (33.5 vs. 17.6 cubic feet). The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the Macan with its rear seat folded (63.5 vs. 52.9 cubic feet).

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 Macan doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its liftgate, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

Payload and Towing

The F-Pace’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the Macan’s (5290 vs. 4409 pounds).

The F-Pace has a higher standard payload capacity than the Macan (1510 vs. 1435 lbs.).


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 Macan doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

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 Macan doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

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

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the F-Pace detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Macan doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

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 Macan doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
