2020 BMW X3 vs. 2020 Jaguar F-Pace


Are you looking to buy the brand-new Jaguar F-Pace or the 2020 BMW X3? Both the vehicles have a great set of attributes to offer, but most car buyers choose BMW over Jaguar. Let us do a comparative analysis to understand better.

Design & Style

The 2020 Jaguar F-Pace is a 5-seater car with ample space in the front row. There is lack of support in the back seats. The thick roof pillars can interfere with the overall visibility. Furthermore, it can be difficult to climb in or out of the vehicle. The Jaguar’s cabin looks good, but some surfaces are covered in low-grade materials that fail to meet standards of other luxury cars.

The 2020 BMW X3 can seat up to 5-seater with ample headroom and legroom in both the rows. Synthetic leather upholstery and eight-way power adjustable seats comes standard. The X3 is well known for its futuristic cabin design and most surface are trimmed with attractive upholstery, soft-touch surfaces and metallic accents.

Technology & Safety

Standard tech features include an infotainment system with an Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, HD radio, 11-speaker Meridian audio system, Bluetooth 10-inch screen. Optional features include Jaguar’s InControl App Suite, Wi-Go hot spot, satellite radio and 17-speaker Meridian audio system. Although the infotainment has a sleek design but does not perform as expected. Standard safety features include rain-sensing wipers, lane keep assist, driver drowsiness monitoring, emergency braking, parking sensors and rearview camera.

Standard tech features include the iDrive infotainment system with HD Radio, 12-speaker system, USB port, Bluetooth, apple CarPlay, navigation and 8.8-inch screen.

Standard safety features include traffic sign recognition, pedestrian detection, emergency braking, forward collision warning, driver drowsiness monitoring, parking sensors and a rearview camera.


The 2020 Jaguar F-Pace comes with 4 engine options, with the base configuration being a 247-HP turbo-four cylinder providing ample punch for daily commute. It can be sluggish to accelerate at highway speeds.

For the BMW X3, there are different engines available for different trims. The base model has a 248-HP turbo-four, while you also have performance-oriented models that range up to 500 HP.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 available muscular engines and engaging driving dynamics make BMW X3 a fun-to-drive SUV. It has plenty of cabin space and ample technology features on offer. This is where F-Pace has a drawback. Materials are of low quality, and the infotainment has a lot of bug. Any smart car buyer would pick X3 over F-Pace.
