Used test: Jaguar F-Pace vs Porsche Macan
If you're looking for a large SUV with a sporty edge then Jaguar's F-Pace and Porsche's Macan both fit the bill. But which one makes more sense as a used buy?...
What will they cost?
New, the F-Pace would have cost you over £6000 more than the Macan, but it is a larger car and comes with a lot of standard kit that would have cost around the same amount to add to the Macan. That includes things like the 20in alloys, sat-nav, electric front passenger seat, a reversing camera and adaptive suspension. Both cars have climate control, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, parking sensors all round, lane-departure warning, cruise control and rain-sensing wipers as standard, however.
The Macan has retained its value much better than the F-Pace, though. A two-year-old F-Pace can be had for £37,900 now, quite a drop from its new price of £52,300, whereas the Macan can be had for around £38,200, where it originally cost £46,182.
While the cars are closely matched for fuel costs, insurance, servicing and road tax, a private cash buyer is likely to spend more on the Jaguar in overall running costs, with depreciation being the main contributor.
