Safety

For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Toyota Rav4 Hybrid are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Jaguar I-Pace doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

Over 200 people are killed each year when backed over by motor vehicles. The Rav4 Hybrid (except LE) offers optional Rear Cross-Traffic Braking that uses rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The I-Pace doesn’t offer backup collision prevention brakes.

Both the Rav4 Hybrid and the I-Pace have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, 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, available blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

For its top level performance in all IIHS frontal, side, rear impact and roof-crush tests, and its standard front crash prevention system, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the Rav4 Hybrid the rating of “Top Pick” for 2017, a rating granted to only 167 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The I-Pace has not been tested, yet.

Warranty

There are over 7 times as many Toyota dealers as there are Jaguar dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Rav4 Hybrid’s warranty.

Reliability

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Toyota vehicles are better in initial quality than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Toyota 17th in initial quality. With 52 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 30th.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2019 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Toyota vehicles are more reliable than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Toyota second in reliability, above the industry average. With 60 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 25th.

Fuel Economy and Range

The Rav4 Hybrid’s maximum EPA estimated driving range on a full tank of fuel is 594.5 miles, after which it can be refueled at any gas station in minutes. The I-Pace’s range is only 234 miles, after which the minimum recharge time is 1 hour and 25 minutes for only a 80% charge at a specially configured quick charge station not available in most areas. A full recharge at a conventional charging station can take up to 12 hours and 54 minutes.

Suspension and Handling

For better maneuverability, the Rav4 Hybrid’s turning circle is 3.2 feet tighter than the I-Pace’s (36.1 feet vs. 39.3 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Rav4 Hybrid has a greater minimum ground clearance than the I-Pace (8.1 vs. 7.8 inches), allowing the Rav4 Hybrid to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Chassis

The Toyota Rav4 Hybrid may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 1050 to 1150 pounds less than the Jaguar I-Pace.

The Rav4 Hybrid is 3.4 inches shorter than the I-Pace, making the Rav4 Hybrid easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Passenger Space

The Rav4 Hybrid has .1 inches more front legroom, .2 inches more front shoulder room, 1.4 inches more rear headroom, 2.8 inches more rear legroom and 1.8 inches more rear shoulder room than the I-Pace.

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the Rav4 Hybrid’s rear seats recline. The I-Pace’s rear seats don’t recline.

Cargo Capacity

The Rav4 Hybrid has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the I-Pace with its rear seat up (37.6 vs. 25.3 cubic feet). The Rav4 Hybrid has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the I-Pace with its rear seat folded (69.8 vs. 51 cubic feet).

Towing

The Rav4 Hybrid has a 1750 lbs. towing capacity. The I-Pace has no towing capacity.

Ergonomics

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Rav4 Hybrid has a standard rear wiper. The I-Pace doesn’t offer a rear wiper.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors standard on the Rav4 Hybrid detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The I-Pace doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Rav4 Hybrid Limited offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The I-Pace doesn’t offer cornering lights.

Recommendations

The Toyota Rav4 outsold the Jaguar I-Pace by almost 1087 to one during 2018.
