In the race for supremacy in the luxury midsize SUV segment, two vehicles stand out: the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE and the 2018 Lexus RX 350. Both of these SUVs are fun to drive, exceedingly comfortable, and reliable. To make the right choice, you need to look at their differences. Find out how the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE matches up with the 2018 Lexus RX 350.



The 2018 Jaguar F-PACE's standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces 247 horsepower, 48 horsepower less than the 2018 Lexus RX 350 and its 3.5-liter DOHC V6. However, it also has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 296 horsepower, greater than the Lexus RX 350 engine. In addition to the four-cylinder engine, the Jaguar F-PACE offers a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 that cranks out 380 horsepower, giving it a clear upper hand in the power department.

The Jaguar F-PACE has a 3.3-inch longer wheelbase and 1.5-inch wider average track than the Lexus RX 350, enabling it to provide a smoother and more stable ride. Its 5.6-inch shorter body makes it easier to maneuver in tight quarters, while its 350-pound lighter weight results in better acceleration, agility, and fuel efficiency. Additionally, the F-PACE delivers stronger stopping power, needing only 107 feet to come to a complete stop from 60 mph. The Lexus RX 350, however, has a stopping distance of 123 feet.

Fuel Economy

In EPA tests, the base model of the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE achieved a fuel-economy rating of 22/27 mpg (city/highway), while the all-wheel-drive 2018 Lexus RX 350 managed only 19/26 mpg. Regardless of which engine it uses, the F-PACE comes with a regenerative braking system, which increases its fuel efficiency by turning inertia back into energy rather than wasting it. Also, its engine will turn off automatically when it is stationary, reducing fuel consumption and pollution. The Lexus RX 350 does not have regenerative braking and automatic engine start and stop.

Luxury & Convenience

The 2018 Jaguar F-PACE is fitted with rain-sensitive wipers that automatically turn on and off and adjust their speed according to the amount of rain on the windshield. With this feature, you can focus on driving without having to constantly adjust the wipers. The Lexus RX 350 standard wipers have to be adjusted constantly. If you opt for the Jaguar F-PACE R-Sport or S, you can get the optional Park Assist technology, which enables the vehicle to maneuver itself into a parking spot. Automated parking is unavailable in the Lexus RX 350.  


When you purchase a 2018 Jaguar F-PACE, you will receive a five-year or 60,000-mile basic warranty. The 2018 Lexus RX 350, however, comes with a four-year or 50,000-mile warranty. Also, the F-PACE offers complimentary maintenance for five years and 60,000 miles. Maintenance on the Lexus RX 350 is free only on the first visit.

Both the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE and the 2018 Lexus RX 350 are excellent vehicles that offer good value for money. However, the F-PACE may have an advantage because of its better performance, fuel efficiency, and warranty.
