Used test: Audi Q5 vs Jaguar F-Pace verdict

It's tough to defeat a used, two-year-old Audi Q5, but this suave Jaguar F-Pace aims to do exactly that. Let battle commence...

Jaguar F-Pace vs Audi Q5 2021 rears

Our verdict

The revisions this updated Jaguar F-Pace has received shouldn't be glossed over, especially the huge improvements in interior finish and infotainment. The D200 version in particular is a solid buy and we can see why you’d go for the F-Pace, despite the strength of the competition.

On the other hand, the Audi Q5 remains more refined and comfortable, with even better quality throughout its interior. Plus, if you seek out an example sporting those optional-from-new sliding rear seats, it’s more practical. As such, it takes the win here.
