Both the F-Pace and GLC 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 GLC’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 provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the F-Pace. But it costs extra on the GLC.

When descending a steep, off-road slope, the F-Pace’s standard All Surface Progress Control allows you to creep down safely. The GLC doesn’t offer All Surface Progress Control.

Both the F-Pace and the GLC have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, available blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

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 GLC’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 GLC’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 GLC.

The F-Pace 30t’s standard 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder produces 41 more horsepower (296 vs. 255) and 22 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 273) than the GLC’s 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder. The F-Pace S’ standard 3.0 supercharged V6 produces 125 more horsepower (380 vs. 255) and 59 lbs.-ft. more torque (332 vs. 273) than the GLC’s 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder. The F-Pace SVR’s standard 5.0 supercharged V8 produces 295 more horsepower (550 vs. 255) and 229 lbs.-ft. more torque (502 vs. 273) than the GLC’s 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder.

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

The F-Pace has 4.3 gallons more fuel capacity than the GLC (21.7 vs. 17.4 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the GLC (255/60R18 vs. 235/60R18). The F-Pace SVR’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the GLC (F:265/45R21 & R:295/40R21 vs. 255/45R20).

The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the GLC’s 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace SVR has standard 21-inch wheels. The GLC’s largest wheels are only 20-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 GLC, it requires you to depend on its run-flat tires, which limits mileage and speed before they are repaired. If a run-flat is damaged beyond repair by a road hazard your vehicle will have to be towed.

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the F-Pace is .8 inches wider in the front and 1.7 inches wider in the rear than the track on the GLC.

The F-Pace’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (51% to 49%) than the GLC’s (53% to 47%). This gives the F-Pace more stable handling and braking.

The F-Pace SVR handles at .89 G’s, while the GLC 300 4MATIC pulls only .80 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The F-Pace SVR executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 2.3 seconds quicker than the GLC 300 4MATIC (25 seconds @ .77 average G’s vs. 27.3 seconds @ .65 average G’s).

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

For greater off-road capability the F-Pace SVR has a greater minimum ground clearance than the GLC (5.9 vs. 5 inches), allowing the F-Pace to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The F-Pace’s minimum ground clearance is 1.3 inches higher than on the GLC (6.3 vs. 5 inches).

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