F-PACE vs Q5: Sensational Performance

You can really put some pep in your step with the F-PACE or Q5 at your command. Both vehicles come standard with turbo 4-cylinder engines that crank out nearly 250 horsepower. As a result, you can go from Point A to Point B in a livelier way and enjoy your journey to the fullest.  

That 4-cylinder is the only engine available on the Audi Q5, though for 2020, you can also have it paired with an electric motor in the plug-in hybrid version.

By contrast, the Jaguar SUV has nearly a half dozen options to choose from. It all culminates in the F-PACE SVR, a race-ready trim level powered by a supercharged V8. Its 550 horsepower can boost you to 60 MPH in as little as 4.1 seconds!

However, all-wheel drive comes standard in both vehicles. From the wet coastal roads to light off-road trails, the F-PACE and Q5 promise sure footing and more balanced drives.

Interior: People Movers & Cargo Carriers 

Versatile vehicles are in high demand these days. When it comes to cabin flexibility, the Jaguar F-PACE and Audi Q5 are reigning champs in the luxury crossover segment. Rear seats make space for kids and adults alike, with more than 37 inches of legroom.

Backseat riders deserve the same all-star treatment as those in the first row. That roomy space, along with available heated rear seats, help make it happen. The F-PACE even offers an optional electric recline feature that lets people in the back ease into a cozier position. 

Does your adventure require plenty of gear? The Jaguar F-PACE can swallow up 33.5 cubic feet of your cargo behind the rear seats. The Audi Q5 is a bit tighter, with just 25.1 cubic feet available.

An Integrated Web of Technology

Luxury vehicles often come loaded with technology. These SUVs are no exception. In fact, the 2020 F-PACE and Q5 make every effort imaginable to keep you connected. Head-up displays are available in both, so you can keep an eye on crucial driving information and the road ahead.

We all know the drive wouldn't be the same without jamming out to your favorite tunes. These SUVs offer premium audio systems to help you do it right. The 825-watt Meridian™ Surround Sound System in the F-PACE and the 755-watt sound system in the Q5 let you finish your trip on a high note--literally.

Furthermore, a 10-inch touchscreen comes standard on the F-PACE as part of the InControl® Touch Pro™ infotainment system. Its size--larger than the Q5's standard 7-inch screen--makes it perfect for seeing your maps in minute detail.  

Jaguar F-PACE vs Audi Q5: Choose Your SUV

Adventure is calling. Is the 2020 Jaguar F-PACE or 2020 Audi Q5 up to the challenge? New Orleans and Metairie drivers will find qualities to admire in both vehicles.  

However, it all depends on what you value most. If performance, technology, and interior space are non-negotiables, the F-PACE may be the perfect luxury SUV for you.
