Both the F-Pace and Highlander 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’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.

Both the F-Pace and the Highlander 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’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’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 (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’s battery is in the hot engine compartment.

The F-Pace 25t’s standard 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder produces 6 lbs.-ft. more torque (269 vs. 263) than the Highlander’s 3.5 DOHC V6. The F-Pace 30t’s standard 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder produces 1 more horsepower (296 vs. 295) and 32 lbs.-ft. more torque (295 vs. 263) than the Highlander’s 3.5 DOHC V6. The F-Pace S’ standard 3.0 supercharged V6 produces 85 more horsepower (380 vs. 295) and 69 lbs.-ft. more torque (332 vs. 263) than the Highlander’s 3.5 DOHC V6. The F-Pace SVR’s standard 5.0 supercharged V8 produces 255 more horsepower (550 vs. 295) and 239 lbs.-ft. more torque (502 vs. 263) than the Highlander’s 3.5 DOHC V6.

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace 25t gets better city fuel mileage than the Highlander AWD (22 city/27 hwy vs. 20 city/27 hwy).

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

The F-Pace has 3.8 gallons more fuel capacity than the Highlander (21.7 vs. 17.9 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the Highlander (255/60R18 vs. 235/65R18). The F-Pace SVR’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Highlander (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 L/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 Limited/Platinum’s 55 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace SVR has standard 21-inch wheels. The Highlander’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; it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

Suspension and Handling

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’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 doesn’t offer variable-assist power steering.

The F-Pace SVR handles at .89 G’s, while the Highlander XLE AWD pulls only .82 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The F-Pace SVR executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 2.4 seconds quicker than the Highlander XLE AWD (25 seconds @ .77 average G’s vs. 27.4 seconds @ .63 average G’s).

The Jaguar F-Pace may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 50 to 300 pounds less than the Toyota Highlander.

The F-Pace is 8.6 inches shorter than the Highlander, making the F-Pace easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Cargo Capacity

The F-Pace has a much larger cargo volume than the Highlander 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 doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

The F-Pace’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the Highlander’s (5290 vs. 5000 pounds).

The F-Pace has a higher standard payload capacity than the Highlander (1510 vs. 1330 lbs.).

The F-Pace uses gas struts to support the hood for easier service access. The Highlander 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. This makes it easier to service and maintain, because there are no rear spark plugs and 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 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 doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

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’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 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 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 doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
