Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar F-PACE as you will with the Land Rover Defender, 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 F-PACE will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Land Rover Defender. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jaguar F-PACE carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Land Rover Defender.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar F-PACE is much wider than the Land Rover Defender, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jaguar F-PACE, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Land Rover Defender.

Handling
The Jaguar F-PACE has a smaller turning radius than the Land Rover Defender, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jaguar F-PACE and the Land Rover Defender.

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

Utility
The Jaguar F-PACE has less seating than the Land Rover Defender, making the Land Rover Defender the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jaguar F-PACE has less cargo space than the Land Rover Defender, 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 F-PACE than that of the Land Rover Defender.
