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 I-PACE, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jaguar I-PACE offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Defender, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Land Rover Defender, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jaguar I-PACE, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 I-PACE is somewhat more expensive 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 I-PACE carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Land Rover Defender.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar I-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 I-PACE, which is slightly longer than the Land Rover Defender.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jaguar I-PACE transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Land Rover Defender.

Handling
The Jaguar I-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 horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jaguar I-PACE and the Land Rover Defender.

Utility
The Jaguar I-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 I-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 I-PACE than that of the Land Rover Defender.
