2020 Audi Q3 vs 2020 Jaguar E-PACE: Exterior Design & Features

Though these two luxury crossovers are shaped similarly, the Q-design Singleframe® grille on the Audi Q3 immediately makes it stand apart from the crowd. But the Audi Q3 has more than good looks going for it; it's also equipped with a number of design features that make it better than the Jag. The power tailgate that comes standard in the 2020 Audi Q3 makes loading and unloading your cargo easier. To get the same feature in the 2020 Jaguar E-PACE, you'll have to shell out extra money. Roof rails and a panoramic sunroof are also standard features on the Audi Q3, but not on the Jaguar E-PACE. Once again, equipping the Jag with these features will end up costing you more.

On the inside, you may notice a number of similarities. Both vehicles are equipped with leather-upholstered seats, for example, and they both feature advanced touchscreens. But when you take a look at the instrument cluster, the contrast is striking. The 2020 Jaguar E-PACE is equipped with an instrument cluster that features a 5-inch display.

2020 Audi Q3 vs 2020 Jaguar E-PACE: Performance

The engines in these two SUVs are very similar in power output. The Jaguar E-PACE does have a bit more horsepower and torque, but it's also a heavier vehicle, so you'll likely notice little difference when it comes to performance. Both vehicles also come standard with all-wheel drive. The biggest difference actually comes in ride quality. The experts at Car and Driver wrote that the 2020 Audi Q3 "moves with the same grace as its larger siblings when pitched down a twisty section of road" and that its "suspension damped out all but the harshest road imperfections." By comparison, they wrote that the wheels of the 2020 Jaguar E-PACE "thudded over choppy roads" and that its "brake pedal had inconsistent feedback."

The 2020 Jaguar E-PACE hasn't been crash tested by either the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The 2020 Audi Q3 has earned a perfect five out of five stars in its overall rating from the NHTSA. Even more impressive is the 2019 Top Safety Pick+ award it earned from the NHTSA! Both vehicles do offer a number of driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control.
