What Are the Differences Between the Jaguar E-PACE and BMW X1?

Even in the luxury compact crossover segment, price and affordability are key aspects that are on display in this 2018 Jaguar E-PACE vs 2018 BMW X1 comparison. While an affordable price is a highlight, you get what you pay for and the Jaguar E-PACE with a starting price that stands at $38,600 promises more power, a dynamic performance, an athletic style and a wealth of standard next-level technology. BMW X1 models start at $33,900, yet fall short in terms of power and equipment.

Jaguar E-PACE models employ a standard 246-horsepower 2.0-liter Ingenium turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is married to a nine-speed automatic transmission. With this combination under the hood, the E-PACE compact crossover will sprint from zero to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds with standard all-wheel drive and promises a top speed of 143 mph. E-PACE R-Dynamic models employ a refined 2.0-liter Ingenium turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 296 horsepower and will sprint from zero to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds with a top speed of 152 mph.

BMW X1 models counter with a standard 228-horsepower 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine that gets paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and provides a lackluster top speed of 131 mph. BMW xDrive All-Wheel Drive is an added asset for the BMW X1 that falls short when stacked up against the Jaguar E-PACE intelligent all-wheel drive system. Without a second engine option, the BMW X1 cannot match the power and performance of the 2018 Jaguar E-PACE.

Inside the 2018 Jaguar E-PACE, you will discover a wealth of innovative and luxurious standard features that the BMW X1 cannot match. A 10-inch Jaguar InControl Touch Pro infotainment system is a highlight of the Jaguar E-PACE design that promises access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The BMW X1 features a humdrum BMW iDrive 6.0 infotainment display. If you are looking for a compact luxury crossover that checks all the boxes, the 2018 Jaguar E-PACE is a class act.
