There are many reasons to consider a luxury crossover vehicle, from their incredible versatility to all those deluxe interior features. In this Jaguar F-PACE vs. Lexus RX comparison, we at Jaguar Hilton Head want to help you explore some options in the segment.

Your Hardeeville, Bluffton, or Hilton Head Island drive is sure to be enhanced by one of these crossovers, but which one? Read on to decide for yourself-and drop us a line if you'd like to learn more!

F-PACE vs RX: Classy Interior Features

Sitting in the cabins of the 2019 F-PACE and RX is certain to be a deluxe experience. You'll be greeted with either standard leatherette or available real leather seats when you slide inside. You can have front seats heated or cooled to keep you comfortable, no matter the temperature outside.

However, only the F-PACE has optional performance seats. They're upholstered in perforated Windsor (Nappa) leather, a full-grain leather that's incredibly soft to the touch and easy to clean. Well-bolstered sides help keep you in your seat as you dart your way around corners.

Crossover to a Powerful Performance

These are luxury vehicles, so you can expect potent engines. The Jaguar F-PACE and Lexus RX offer a range of engine options, but when it comes to output, the Jaguar crossover is on stronger ground. In its top trim level, you'll find a supercharged V8 with 550 horsepower on tap.

The Lexus RX, meanwhile, tops out with a V6 that delivers 308 horsepower. That'll get you moving quickly, going from 0 to 60 MPH in just 7.9 seconds. As impressive as that is, it can't match the speed of the Jaguar F-PACE, which can make that same leap in as little as 4.1 seconds.

The RX offers all-wheel drive (AWD) as an upgrade from standard front-wheel drive (FWD) for more grip on the road. Still, the F-PACE goes a step further with standard AWD. Its system is predictive, intelligently delivering power to all four wheels even before the vehicle loses traction for a safer ride.

Technology Features for Convenience

You're in for a real treat when it comes to infotainment in the 2019 F-PACE and RX. Whether it's the Jaguar InControl® Touch Pro™ or Lexus Enform™ system, you can rely on smartphone integration for easy access to your favorite music, maps, and messaging apps.

When you want to hear your music loud and clear, you'll like the available premium sound systems. In the F-PACE, it's Meridian™ (17 speakers), and in the RX, it's Mark Levinson® (15 speakers), but you get more than 800 watts of power and concert-quality sound either way, just for you.

Both rides offer a panoramic sunroof that can bring some welcome sunlight into the cabin. You can slide it open to get the full effect or tilt it open to let out the hot air when your ride's been sitting in the sun all day. However, this feature only comes standard on the F-PACE: You'll need to upgrade if you want it in the RX.
