Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Land Rover Discovery Sport than in the Jaguar E-PACE, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jaguar E-PACE and the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Convenience
The Jaguar E-PACE requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Land Rover Discovery Sport, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Jaguar E-PACE is somewhat more expensive than the Land Rover Discovery Sport. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Jaguar E-PACE and the Land Rover Discovery Sport have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar E-PACE is about the same width as the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The Jaguar E-PACE is slightly shorter than the Land Rover Discovery Sport, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Jaguar E-PACE has a larger turning radius than the Land Rover Discovery Sport, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Land Rover Discovery Sport is clearly the choice over the Jaguar E-PACE for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jaguar E-PACE and the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Jaguar E-PACE and the Land Rover Discovery Sport are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
The Jaguar E-PACE has less seating than the Land Rover Discovery Sport, making the Land Rover Discovery Sport the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jaguar E-PACE has less cargo space than the Land Rover Discovery Sport, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar E-PACE than that of the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
