SUV Comparison: Here's How the Jaguar F-PACE and Audi Q5 Stack Up

Specs and features are objective, but your SUV search isn't – not fully, anyway. When looking for the right new luxury SUV near Seaside or Monterey, CA, you have to ask yourself what matters most. Is it the vehicle with the most power or technological advancements? Is it the vehicle with the most space? Or is it the vehicle that provides the most gratification every time you step inside, start the engine, and go?

The new Jaguar F-PACE provides the versatility, luxury and features you're looking for out of your next SUV, with an extra edge. But to back up our assertions, we're going to compare the F-PACE with one of its main competitors, the 2018 Audi Q5. So without delay, here are how these two SUVs stack up across the categories.

  • Safety: Looking for an SUV that's safe? While the Audi Q5 is well-equipped with Audi Pre Sense, the Jaguar F-PACE provides plenty of available active safety features, including everything from rain-sensing wipers to a 360-degree camera.
  • Drivetrain: The Jaguar F-PACE and Audi Q5 both offer AWD to help you drive more confidently here in Santa Cruz, CA.
