2018 JAGUAR F-PACE VS. 2018 PORSCHE MACAN

 

The Jaguar F-PACE and the Porsche Macan are two vehicles that stand out in the compact luxury SUV segment. Both SUVs offer impressive performance and ride comfort, but the Jaguar has a leg up in a number of departments. Check out this comparison between the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE and the 2018 Porsche Macan to determine which of the two is more suitable for you.

Performance

 

With its standard eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE can accelerate smoothly and maintain low engine speed while cruising on the highway. The 2018 Porsche Macan, on the other hand, uses a seven-speed automatic transmission. For a smoother and more planted ride, the Jaguar has a 113.1-inch wheelbase, which is 2.6 inches longer than that of its rival. Also, its S model negotiates corners competently with a cornering force of 0.88 G's. In comparison, the Porsche Macan S pulls only 0.82 G's.

If you plan to drive away from the pavement frequently or occasionally, you will appreciate the Jaguar F-PACE's minimum ground clearance of 8.4 inches, which is 0.3 inch higher than the Porsche Macan's. With a higher ground clearance, the SUV can clear off-road obstacles more easily while minimizing damage.

Luxury & Convenience

The Jaguar F-PACE provides a more comfortable ride than the Porsche Macan with its generous passenger space. It offers 0.8 inch more shoulder room for front passengers and 1.6 inches more legroom and 0.9 inch more shoulder room for rear passengers. For enhanced comfort during long journeys, the Jaguar comes with optional reclining rear seats, while the Porsche does not. If you need to carry a lot of stuff regularly, the Jaguar F-PACE is a better option. It gives you 33.5 cubic inches of cargo space with its rear seats up, which is 15.8 cubic inches more than its rival.

The Jaguar F-PACE also has a number of convenience features that are absent in the Porsche Macan. These include a standard remote start system that allows you to start the SUV and warm or cool the cabin from inside your home. It also has a heads-up display that shows key driving information in your line of sight.

Fuel Economy

If you are concerned about fuel economy, you should opt for the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE. It achieves an EPA-estimated 22/27 mpg (city/highway), while the Porsche Macan only manages 20/26 mpg. For more fuel savings, get the Jaguar F-PACE 20d, which delivers 26/33 mpg.

Warranty

If you decide to buy the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE, you will get a full five-year or 60,000-mile warranty that covers the entire SUV. The Porsche Macan comes with only a four-year or 50,000-mile warranty. Also, Jaguar offers complimentary scheduled maintenance for the same number of years and distance, while Porsche only pays for maintenance for one year or 10,000 miles.

Both the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE and the 2018 Porsche Macan are investments, but the Jaguar can help you save substantially over the long run with its lower cost of ownership. If you are interested in the Jaguar F-PACE, stop by Hennessy Jaguar of Gwinnett for a test drive.
