Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus RX 350 than in the Jaguar E-PACE, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lexus RX 350 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar E-PACE.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar E-PACE as you will with the Lexus RX 350, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jaguar E-PACE will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus RX 350. 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 RX 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Handling
The Jaguar E-PACE has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lexus RX 350, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lexus RX 350 is clearly the choice over the Jaguar E-PACE for pulling heavy loads. The Jaguar E-PACE has a little less horsepower than the Lexus RX 350.

Powertrain

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 RX 350. With the Jaguar E-PACE, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus RX 350.
