Both the F-Pace and Highlander Hybrid 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 Highlander Hybrid’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 Highlander Hybrid.
Both the F-Pace and the Highlander Hybrid 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, lane departure warning systems, 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 Highlander Hybrid’s 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty expires 2 years and 24,000 miles sooner.
The F-Pace’s corrosion warranty is 1 year longer than the Highlander Hybrid’s (6 vs. 5 years).
Jaguar pays for scheduled maintenance on the F-Pace for 3 years and 35000 miles longer than Toyota pays for maintenance for the Highlander Hybrid (5/60,000 vs. 2/25000).
The battery on the F-Pace is in the trunk, which protects it from hot underhood temperatures that can degrade battery life. By keeping the F-Pace’s battery 20 to 30 degrees cooler, its life is increased by years. The Highlander Hybrid’s battery is in the hot engine compartment.
The F-Pace 25t’s standard 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder produces 4 more horsepower (247 vs. 243) than the Highlander Hybrid’s 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder hybrid. The F-Pace 30t’s standard 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder produces 53 more horsepower (296 vs. 243) than the Highlander Hybrid’s 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder hybrid. The F-Pace S’ standard 3.0 supercharged V6 produces 137 more horsepower (380 vs. 243) than the Highlander Hybrid’s 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder hybrid. The F-Pace SVR’s standard 5.0 supercharged V8 produces 307 more horsepower (550 vs. 243) than the Highlander Hybrid’s 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder hybrid.
The F-Pace has 4.6 gallons more fuel capacity than the Highlander Hybrid (21.7 vs. 17.1 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.
For better stopping power the F-Pace SVR’s front brake rotors are larger than those on the Highlander Hybrid:
The F-Pace’s standard front and rear disc brakes are vented to help dissipate heat for shorter stops with less fading. The rear discs on the Highlander Hybrid are solid, not vented.
For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the Highlander Hybrid (255/60R18 vs. 235/65R18). The F-Pace SVR’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Highlander Hybrid (F:265/45R21 & R:295/40R21 vs. 235/65R18).
The F-Pace Base’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 60 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Highlander Hybrid LE/XLE’s standard 65 series tires. The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio’s optional tires have a lower 40 series profile than the Highlander Hybrid Limited/Platinum’s 55 series tires.
For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace SVR has standard 21-inch wheels. The Highlander Hybrid’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 Highlander Hybrid; it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.
The F-Pace offers an optional driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The Highlander Hybrid’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.
The F-Pace has vehicle speed sensitive variable-assist power steering, for low-effort parking, better control at highway speeds and during hard cornering, and a better feel of the road. The Highlander Hybrid doesn’t offer variable-assist power steering.
The Jaguar F-Pace may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 200 to 450 pounds less than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
The F-Pace is 8.6 inches shorter than the Highlander Hybrid, making the F-Pace easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.
The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume than the Highlander Hybrid with its rear seat up (33.5 vs. 16 cubic feet).
Pressing a switch automatically lowers the F-Pace’s (except Base/Premium) optional rear seats, to make changing between passengers and cargo easier. The Highlander Hybrid doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.
The F-Pace’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the Highlander Hybrid’s (5290 vs. 3500 pounds).
The F-Pace uses gas struts to support the hood for easier service access. The Highlander Hybrid uses a prop rod to support its heavy hood. It takes two hands to open the hood and set the prop rod, the prop rod gets in the way during maintenance and service, and the prop rod could be knocked out, causing the heavy hood to fall on the person maintaining or servicing the car.
The engine in the F-Pace is mounted longitudinally (North-South), instead of sideways, as in the Highlander Hybrid. This makes it easier to service and maintain, because the accessory belts are in front.
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 Highlander Hybrid doesn’t offer a remote starting system.
The F-Pace (except Base)’s standard easy entry system raises the steering wheel when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Highlander Hybrid doesn’t offer an easy entry 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 Highlander Hybrid doesn’t offer a heads-up display.
The F-Pace’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Highlander Hybrid’s standard manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.
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 Highlander Hybrid doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.
The F-Pace’s standard rear view mirror and optional side view mirrors have an automatic dimming feature. These mirrors can be set to automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Highlander Hybrid offers an automatic rear view mirror, but its side mirrors don’t dim.
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 Highlander Hybrid doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
