Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Jaguar E-PACE than the Lexus NX 300h. The Lexus NX 300h offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar E-PACE, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Jaguar E-PACE requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus NX 300h, 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). Whether you pick the Jaguar E-PACE or the Lexus NX 300h, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Lexus NX 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar E-PACE is a little wider than the Lexus NX 300h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Jaguar E-PACE, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus NX 300h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jaguar E-PACE does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Lexus NX 300h.

Handling
The Jaguar E-PACE has a larger turning radius than the Lexus NX 300h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Jaguar E-PACE, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Lexus NX 300h. When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar E-PACE greatly out-muscles the Lexus NX 300h.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jaguar E-PACE and the Lexus NX 300h. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jaguar E-PACE as you will in the Lexus NX 300h.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar E-PACE than that of the Lexus NX 300h.
