2017 Porsche Macan
In more ways than one, the all-new 2017 Jaguar F-PACE has proven itself quite a contender in the compact luxury SUV segment. Between its practical price, stellar performance, and spacious dimensions for passengers and cargo alike, this Jaguar model is a tough one to beat. The 2017 Porsche Macan does try, but upon close inspection it becomes clear that the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE is set to lead the way. Find out why before seeing if it will meet your driving needs and desires in Naples or Marco Island at Jaguar Fort Myers.
Despite the luxury label, the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE remains relatively affordable, especially compared to competition of the 2017 Porsche Macan. The all-new Jaguar F-PACE boasts an MSRP from $40,990, while the 2017 Porsche Macan comes in with an MSRP from $47,500. That’s more than a $6,000 difference.
The 2017 Jaguar F-PACE promises incredibly impressive cargo space, with a best-in-class standard cargo volume of 33.5 cubic feet, a figure that balloons to a maximum capacity of 63.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. The 2017 Porsche Macan, on the other hand, claims to be an SUV geared toward both passengers and cargo, yet it only has a mere 17.7 cubic feet dedicated for cargo. Even when you fold the rear seats down, you’ll have only 53.0 cubic feet to work with.
Performance and Fuel Efficiency
There are stark differences between the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE and the 2017 Porsche Macan when it comes to powertrain offerings.
- Jaguar F-PACE: Every Jaguar F-PACE model come with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. A supercharged 3.0L V6 engine generates 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, but opt for the S or First Edition trims to get 380 hp. This powertrain gets up to an EPA-estimated 20 mpg combined. There’s also a turbo-diesel 2.0L inline-four that makes 180 hp and a whopping 318 lb-ft of torque. There aren’t yet EPA estimates on this engine, but Jaguar estimates fuel efficiency in the upper 20 mpg combined range.
- 2017 Porsche Macan: All versions of the Macan have all-wheel drive and a seven-speed automated manual transmission as standard. The base model runs on a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder that makes 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque and achieves 22 mpg combined, according to Porsche estimates only. Its turbocharged 3.0L V6 option produces 340 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque, figures that closely resemble those of the Jaguar F-PACE’s V6 machine. However, this engine’s EPA-estimated fuel economy stands at just 19 mpg combined. The Porsche model also has an additional turbocharged 3.6L V6 engine on offer.
