2018 Jaguar F-PACE vs. 2018 Volvo XC60




When you're shopping in the compact performance SUV segment, there are several qualities you're probably looking for. Plenty of cargo room, high tech features, and exciting performance are all important. There's also a good chance that the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE and the 2018 Volvo XC60 are both high on your list. To help you narrow down your selection, let's take a look at how these two models compare.

Thrilling Performance

As compact luxury SUVs, both the F-PACE and the XC60 come standard with four-cylinder engines. While that might meet some driver's needs, it's good to have a higher-performance engine available. The following upgraded engines can be added:

  • The 2018 Volvo XC60 can be equipped with a 2.0L supercharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.

  • The 3.0L supercharged V6 in the 2018 Jaguar F-PACE S puts out a massive 380 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.

As you can see, the F-PACE offers more acceleration and speed than the XC60. When you're cruising along Lake Michigan this summer, you'll appreciate that added power.

Turbodiesel Availablility


A diesel engine can offer excellent fuel economy and superb acceleration. When you're getting up to speed on Interstate-80 near Hoffman Estates, it'll come in handy. The F-PACE can be equipped with an Ingenium 2.0L four-cylinder turbodiesel engine, which puts out 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque. This allows this premium SUV to reach 26 mpg city/33 mpg highway/29 mpg combined in EPA estimates. Unfortunately, the Volvo XC60 cannot be had with a diesel engine.

Standard Features


Both models are available in many different trim levels, and they allow you to customize your vehicle to best meet your needs. However, in the base trim, the F-PACE includes more helpful features:

  • Reverse Tilt Passenger-Side Mirror with Curb View

  • Keyless Ignition

  • Overhead Console

  • 11-Speaker, 380 Watt Sound System with Subwoofer

Sadly, none of these are included with the base trim XC60. For more standard luxury, there's only one choice.
