The new Jaguar F-Pace is the brand’s long-awaited foray into the competitive SUV class. While cars including the XE and XF saloons have shown just how capable modern Jaguars are, it’s the F-Pace that could well become the British marque’s top seller.
If you like it but aren’t sure whether the Jaguar will fit into your life, we’ve come up with a guide to the car’s sizes and dimensions. We’ll also compare it to its closest rivals to see how it fares.

Jaguar F-Pace exterior dimensions
The F-Pace’s footprint straddles both larger luxury SUVs, and their medium sized counterparts. It’s about 100mm longer than both the Audi Q5 and BMW X3, and 50mm longer than the Porsche Macan – arguably its main rival. However, it’s still a good 150mm shorter than cars such as the BMW X5 and Range Rover Sport – though those cars offer a seven seat option unlike the five-seat Jaguar.
Interestingly, the F-Pace is about as wide as the larger, more expensive SUVs in the market. While it makes the Jaguar slightly trickier than thinner rivals on narrow roads, it does mean you get plenty of elbow room in the cabin. Combined with a relatively low ride height for an SUV, this should help the Jaguar feel more like a sports car on the road and make it more resistant to body roll.

Jaguar F-Pace interior dimensions
The stylised exterior has slightly reduced the F-Pace’s interior space compared to its more boxy rivals. Headroom and legroom in both front and rear is a little less than most competitors, but not to the extent that you’d really notice. There’s still more room than either Jaguar’s XE or XF saloons making it a better choice for family buyers.
Jaguar F-Pace boot space
While passenger space lags behind rivals, the Jaguar has significantly greater luggage capacity, both with the rear seats up and down. Its 650-litre bay is larger than even the BMW X5, and the 1,740-litre space with the seats folded is around 60 litres bigger than the humongous Range Rover Sport.

Jaguar F-Pace fuel tank and turning circle
A turning circle of 11.87 metres is smaller than all but the Audi Q5 and Mercedes GLC in this segment of the market, and the Jaguar is longer and wider than either of those cars. While it’s a stretch to call this car easy to drive in town, the extra agility goes some way to making it a more liveable companion.
In terms of fuel capacity, the Jaguar lags a little behind most rivals. Its 60-litre tank is the same as diesel versions of the Porsche Macan, but all Q5 variants get a massive 75 litres of tank capacity. Thankfully, good fuel economy means the F-Pace still gets an impressive range of 765 miles when fitted with two-wheel drive and a manual gearbox.

Jaguar F-Pace weight and towing limits
With lots of lightweight aluminium used in its construction, the Jaguar F-Pace is one of the lightest SUVs around. The basic models are a good 150kg lighter than comparable rivals, and even the heaviest four-wheel-drive versions with a V6 diesel engine are lighter than equally powerful rivals.
Annoyingly, this does mean towing limits are a little lower than rivals, with even the 3.0-litre diesel version only being able to haul 2,400kg – 100kg less than the Mercedes GLC with a 2.1-litre diesel engine.
