Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Jaguar E-PACE than the Lexus NX 300h. The Lexus NX 300h offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar E-PACE, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Jaguar E-PACE requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus NX 300h, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Jaguar E-PACE or the Lexus NX 300h, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Jaguar E-PACE and the Lexus NX 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar E-PACE is a little wider than the Lexus NX 300h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Jaguar E-PACE, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus NX 300h.

Handling
The Jaguar E-PACE has a larger turning radius than the Lexus NX 300h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Jaguar E-PACE, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Lexus NX 300h. When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar E-PACE greatly out-muscles the Lexus NX 300h.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jaguar E-PACE does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Lexus NX 300h.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jaguar E-PACE and the Lexus NX 300h. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Jaguar E-PACE as you will in the Lexus NX 300h.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar E-PACE than that of the Lexus NX 300h.
