Putting the 2019 Porsche Macan up next to the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace was a competition bound to happen sooner or later. Both of these luxury SUVs have fought ferociously for a market share. Nowadays, most luxury automakers have dipped their toes into the crossover SUV market, building one model or another. You can expect luxury performance from both the 2019 Porsche Macan and the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace. However, which one distinguishes itself as the superior breed is up to question. Let’s look at some of the facts.

The Engine

Looking under the hood of the 2019 Porsche Macan will leave you exhilarated and wanting to take it for a spin. At the base trim of the 2019 Porsche Macan, you receive a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four, and the motor generates up to 300 horsepower. That’s an impressive leap since last year’s 252 horsepower. Should you sign off on the Macan S, you upgrade the engine to a 3.0-liter V6 engine. This hands you a beast when you get behind the wheel, and the engine produces 350 horsepower. In addition, this luxury crossover has some kick as you race from zero to 60 in 5.1 seconds.

How does the Jaguar F-Pace compare? Looking at the Jaguar F-Pace, you receive a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. If you want to know the unadulterated power, the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine won’t disappoint as you get behind the wheel and floor the gas pedal. However, the 2019 Porsche Macan fights with heart and soul as it prepares its best weapons against the Jaguar F-Pace, and you have a fairly equal match in the engine department.


You will feel proud to show friends and family the interior of the 2019 Porsche Macan, considering how much of the interior uses premium-grade materials, and you feel like you have stepped into the famous Porsche 911—it echoes a few resemblances. Since its predecessor, we have noted some marked improvements in the technology, comfort, and integration of the 2019 Porsche Macan. You have an optional choice to sign up for the GT sports steering wheel, which is an obvious salute to the most iconic sports car from Stuttgart.

Jaguar has always had a reputation for its customization options, and you can start with the customization of the performance seats of the driver’s seat. For example, you can choose perforated grained leather. You will see British craftsmanship at its finest in this car. The premium materials were handpicked, and the car looks sophisticated enough. Still, you feel like you have received a better value with the interior of the Porsche Macan.


With the 2019 Porsche Macan, updates to the LED headlights have made this crossover SUV look more impressive and light up the highway better at night. The German automaker has made a long list of improvements to the latest model. For example, you have an LED taillight strip that extends the full length of this car. This improves safety, but it also mirrors the design elements found in the Porsche Panorama and the Porsche Cayenne.

On the other hand, you have the Jaguar F-Pace, which British automakers made with an assertive style that they claim improves aerodynamics. With the F-Pace, the muscular elements were emphasized, but it’s not necessarily something we haven’t seen before.

If you’d like to learn more, you can test drive the 2019 Porsche Macan. In truth, we see this one as a little better value for what you pay. While both are luxury crossovers and you can expect both to perform to that standard, the Macan has something special about it this year, and Porsche lovers should race to our dealership to check it out.
