For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Mercedes AMG GLC have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision and force limiters to limit the pressure the belts will exert on the passengers. The Jaguar F-Pace doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

The AMG GLC’s pre-crash front seatbelts will tighten automatically in the event the vehicle detects an impending crash, improving protection against injury significantly. The F-Pace doesn’t offer pre-crash pretensioners.

For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Mercedes AMG GLC 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 F-Pace doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

Both the AMG GLC and the F-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, rearview cameras, driver alert monitors, available lane departure warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

A nine-speed automatic is standard on the Mercedes AMG GLC, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only an eight-speed automatic is available for the F-Pace.

The AMG GLC V8’s launch control uses engine electronics to hold engine RPM’s precisely in order to provide the most stable and rapid acceleration possible, using all of the available traction. The F-Pace doesn’t offer launch control.

For better traction and acceleration, the AMG GLC has larger standard rear tires than the F-Pace (285/40R20 vs. 255/60R18).

The AMG GLC 43’s standard 255/45R20 front and 285/40R20 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 45 series front and 40 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the F-Pace Base’s standard 60 series tires. The AMG GLC’s optional 295/35R21 rear tires have a lower 35 series profile than the F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio’s optional 40 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the AMG GLC has standard 20-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the F-Pace Base.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires available on the AMG GLC can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The F-Pace doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

Suspension and Handling

The front and rear suspension of the AMG GLC uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the F-Pace, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The AMG GLC has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The AMG GLC’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

The AMG GLC’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The F-Pace doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

The AMG GLC 43 handles at .94 G’s, while the F-Pace Portfolio pulls only .85 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The AMG GLC 43 executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.6 seconds quicker than the F-Pace R-Sport (25.2 seconds @ .75 average G’s vs. 26.8 seconds @ .67 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the AMG GLC 63 has a greater minimum ground clearance than the F-Pace SVR (6.1 vs. 5.9 inches), allowing the AMG GLC to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The AMG GLC 43’s minimum ground clearance is .4 inch higher than on the F-Pace (6.7 vs. 6.3 inches).

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the F-Pace (except Base), the AMG GLC offers an optional passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the AMG GLC to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. Heated windshield washer nozzles cost extra on the F-Pace.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the AMG GLC has standard extendable sun visors. The F-Pace doesn’t offer extendable visors.

To quickly and conveniently keep personal devices charged without cables tangling and wearing out, the Mercedes AMG GLC offers an optional wireless phone charging system (Qi) in the center console. The F-Pace doesn’t offer wireless personal charging.

The AMG GLC has a 115-volt a/c outlet on the center console, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.

The AMG GLC’s optional Active Parking Assist can parallel park by itself, starting and stopping automatically, with the driver only responsible for switching from reverse to drive. The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S’ automatic parking system requires operating the brakes and transmission to safely park.
