2017 Porsche Macan vs. 2017 Jaguar F-PACE
The 2017 Porsche Macan and the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE are both luxury sport utility vehicles. While it’s probably true that you could be happy with either of these models, there are some key differences. They’re both high quality SUVs, but if you’re a discerning driver in the Destin or Biloxi area you’re going to want to look beyond the sheet metal and actually compare them side by side before you make any decisions.
Powertrains and Performance
The Jaguar F-PACE is equipped with a powerful 3.0L supercharged gas V6 engine good for 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. With this engine and standard all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmission, the Jaguar F-PACE sets a spirited pace—it will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 5.4 seconds. Despite that performance, it will still earn up to 18 mpg city/23 mpg highway based on EPA estimates.
The Macan gets a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. That is far less power than the base Jaguar. While the Macan gets all-wheel drive and a standard seven-speed automatic transmission, it doesn’t offer much better fuel economy than the Jaguar, with only 20 mpg city/25 mpg highway. Plus, it takes this crossover a lengthy 6.2 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph.
One big difference between these two sport utility vehicles is the cargo space they offer. You are shopping for a sport utility vehicle, so this should be a concern! The F-PACE has a generous 33.5 cubic feet of space behind the second row, while the Porsche Macan offers only 17.7 cubic feet of space. That’s a big difference in how much luggage you can bring with you.
While the Porsche offers 48-months/50,000-miles worth of basic coverage and powertrain coverage, the Jaguar gets 60-months/60,000-miles worth of basic and powertrain coverage. The same goes for roadside assistance. The Jaguar even gets 60-moths/60,0000-miles worth of included basic maintenance, which is something that Porsche doesn’t offer at all.
