2021 Jaguar F-PACE vs. 2021 Audi Q5

If you’re looking for a luxurious SUV with ample space, plenty of high-end features, and power to spare, comparing the 2021 Jaguar F-PACE vs. Audi Q5 is a great place to start. However, only one will feel just right for your needs, and we think there are plenty of reasons to prefer the latest F-PACE. In fact, the new F-PACE wins out in all the areas that matter most to Los Angeles and Orange County drivers.

Jaguar F-PACE vs. Audi Q5: Engines

The starting engines for the Jaguar F-PACE and the Audi Q5 are more or less evenly matched. However, everything changes when you start to compare upper-level options in the lineup. The F-PACE offers three even-more-powerful engines for you to consider, while the Audi offers just one upgrade:

Jaguar F-PACE Engines

  • 247-hp 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder with 269 lb-ft of torque
  • 335-hp 3.0L Turbo Inline-6 with 354 lb-ft of torque
  • 395-hp 3.0L Turbo Inline-6 with 406 lb-ft of torque
  • 550-hp 5.0L Supercharged V8 with 502 lb-ft of torque

Audi Q5 Engine

  • 261-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder with 273 lb-ft of torque
  • 362-hp Plug-In Hybrid Powertrain with 369 lb-ft of torque

So, Q5 or F-PACE? Perhaps a better question is: why would you settle for less? With two engine options that offer more power than any Q5, the F-PACE is a top pick for performance enthusiasts. What else would you expect from a model that can take on the Porsche Macan?

Jaguar F-PACE vs. Audi Q5: Cargo Capacity

For some drivers, choosing between the Q5 or F-PACE will depend on how much room is available for cargo. If you foresee needing extra space for sports gear and other bulky items, you’ll appreciate the more generous dimensions inside the F-PACE:

Jaguar F-PACE

  • Max. Cargo Capacity: 69.1 cubic feet
  • Cargo Capacity Behind 2nd Row: 31.5 cubic feet

Audi Q5

  • Max. Cargo Capacity: 54.0 cubic feet
  • Cargo Capacity Behind 2nd Row: 25.8 cubic feet

Jaguar F-PACE vs. Audi Q5: Technology and Features

Although both models offer useful features like wireless device charging, automatic climate control, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™, only the F-PACE offers each of the following:
