2022 Jaguar F-PACE vs. Audi Q5
When it comes to midsize luxury crossovers, the Jaguar F-PACE continues to set the benchmark for the segment. The competition simply cannot compete with the pulse-pounding performance, seductive styling, advanced technology, and innovative safety features found on every F-PACE in the lineup. To highlight the strengths of the F-PACE, Jaguar Easton has created this comparison in which it goes head-to-head with the Audi Q5. Which model will emerge with the victory? Let’s take a closer look.

Beginning this comparison by looking at pricing, you’ll notice that the Audi Q5 45 Prestige has a slight price advantage over the Jaguar F-PACE S P340 AWD. However, closer examination reveals that this initial price difference is quite misleading if you were thinking that the Q5 is the better value.
In terms of performance, the larger 3.0-liter inline-six of the Jaguar provides for thrills than you’ll find at Audi. For those who crave maximum exhilaration, the F-PACE offers a sizable 74 horsepower and 81 lb-ft more torque than the Q5. You’ll also receive a limited-slip differential and adaptive suspension for superior handling. Better still, the F-PACE comes equipped with a far superior 8-speed automatic transmission which improves both efficiency and response. A larger fuel tank means that you’ll have to make fewer stops on the way to your destination.
Using your compatible smart device, you’ll have the option to remotely start your F-PACE with the touch of a button. This great feature is not available on the Q5. Enjoy a concert-like listening experience from the standard 11-speaker Meridian audio system that’s tuned specifically for the F-PACE. Audi drivers will have to shell out additional cash in order to upgrade from the standard audio system inside the Q5. A larger cargo capacity means that you’ll have more room for that extra suitcase or two when packing for your next weekend getaway.
Finally, Audi simply cannot match the confidence and peace of mind that comes from owning a Jaguar. Jaguar includes a longer basic and powertrain warranty along with longer roadside assistance coverage.
Winner – Jaguar F-PACE
Now that you’ve seen the results of this head-to-head matchup, the clear favorite is the Jaguar F-PACE.
