Read more about the 2017 Porsche Macan GTS vs Jaguar F-Pace S at AutoGuide.com.When Porsche released the Cayenne back in 2002, it did so with a purpose, hoping to boost its stock with a model for the masses.
And it worked, with the brand’s first four-door propping it up in a way the 911 never could while creating a case for more non-sports cars from Stuttgart. The Macan compact crossover arrived more than a dozen years later to equal success, quickly becoming the brand’s best-selling model.
Hoping to replicate Porsche’s path to prosperity, the Jaguar F-Pace is charting a new course for a brand long synonymous with luxurious sedans and sporty coupes and convertibles. Careful not to step on the toes of sister brand Land Rover and its smattering of sport utilities, the F-Pace, like the Macan, is cut from the same cloth as its sports car siblings in spite of its people-moving proportions. It’s also got some serious ground to make up.
