Comparing the Jaguar F-PACE and the Mercedes-Benz GLC300 4Matic

If you're shopping for a high-end, luxury SUV that not only looks great and provides comfortable accommodations but can actually go anywhere and do anything, your options become somewhat limited to a handful of makes and models.

In fact, the all-new Jaguar F-PACE and the Mercedes-Benz GLC300 4Matic may be your best choices. Both are terrific SUVs, but we believe the new F-PACE has distinct advantages that make it the clear choice. Let's take a look at how the Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz SUVs stand up.

  • Standard All-Wheel Drive. The new Jaguar F-PACE was built from the ground up with all-wheel drive as part of its DNA. The Mercedes-Benz GCL300 is extremely capable, but adding 4Matic all-wheel is a costly upgrade and a feature that one would expect to be standard. Brief aside: the British automaker builds its sedans and SUVs for mucking around - off-road capability is an area where it shines.
  • Power and Performance. The F-Pace comes standard with a rugged 2.0-liter turbodiesel that puts pout 180 horsepower and a very capable 318 pound-feet of torque. An available 3.0-liter supercharged V6 delivers 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz GLC300 uses a similar 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, but lacks a low-speed transfer case even on the 4Matic. The British - from Jaguar to Land Rover - know off-road prowess.

  • Standard Features and Interior Accommodations. It's a close call. Both vehicles are exceptionally well-equipped. But the F-PACE is brand-new, and Jaguar is determined to make a mark. In addition to standard all-wheel drive, an awe-inspiring sliding panoramic roof and a 5,290-pound towing capacity, the F-PACE features power front seats and a power rear liftgate, as well its acclaimed 11-speaker Meridian sound system and Jaguar EliteCare. Jaguar EliteCare includes a five-year/60,000-mile warranty, five years or 60,000-miles of free scheduled maintenance, and five years or 60,000-miles of 24/7 roadside assistance program. That kind of peace of mind is invaluable.
