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 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-PACE, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Jaguar F-PACE requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Land Rover Defender, 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). 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 slimmer than the Land Rover Defender, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jaguar F-PACE, which is slightly longer than the Land Rover Defender.

Drivetrain
The Jaguar F-PACE has much lower torque than the Land Rover Defender, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Land Rover Defender is clearly the choice over the Jaguar F-PACE for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar F-PACE has a lot less horsepower than the Land Rover Defender.

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.

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.
