Safety Comparison

The F-Type’s optional blind spot warning system uses digital cameras monitored by computer to alert the driver to moving objects in the vehicle’s blind spots where the side view mirrors don’t reveal them. The Huracán doesn’t offer a system to reveal objects in the driver’s blind spots.

To help make backing safer, the F-Type’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Huracán doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

The F-Type has standard InControl, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Huracán doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.

Both the F-Type and the Huracán have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights and available rearview cameras.

Warranty Comparison

Jaguar pays for scheduled maintenance on the F-Type for 5 years and 60,000 miles. Jaguar will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance. Lamborghini doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the Huracán.

There are over 5 times as many Jaguar dealers as there are Lamborghini dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the F-Type’s warranty.

Reliability Comparison

The Huracán’s redline is at 8500 RPM, which causes more engine wear, and a greater chance of a catastrophic engine failure. The F-Type has a 6600 to 6800 RPM redline.

In an emergency stopping situation, many drivers don’t press the brakes with enough force to stop the vehicle in the shortest distance. The F-Type has a standard brake assist system to detect emergency braking situations (by how hard and how quickly the brake pedal is pressed) and then automatically apply maximum braking immediately in order to help prevent a collision. The Huracán doesn’t offer a brake assist feature.

Motor Trend

Tires and Wheels Comparison

For better traction, the F-Type’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Huracán (275/40R19 vs. 245/30R20).

Suspension and Handling Comparison

The F-Type’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Huracán doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

The F-Type’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (52.6% to 47.4%) than the Huracán’s (43% to 57%). This gives the F-Type more stable handling and braking.

For better maneuverability, the F-Type’s turning circle is 2.7 feet tighter than the Huracán’s (35 feet vs. 37.7 feet).

Chassis Comparison

As tested by Car and Driver, the interior of the F-Type R Coupe is quieter than the Huracán LP 610-4 Coupe 4x4:

Cargo Capacity Comparison

The F-Type Coupe has a much larger trunk than the Huracán Coupe (11 vs. 4 cubic feet).

To make loading and unloading groceries and cargo easier, especially for short adults or children, the F-Type Coupe offers an optional power trunk, which opens and closes automatically by pressing a button. The Huracán doesn’t offer a power trunk.

Ergonomics Comparison

The F-Type Auto has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Huracán doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

When three different drivers share the F-Type, the optional memory system makes it convenient for all three. Each setting activates different, customized memories for the driver and front passenger’s seat positions, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle. The Huracán doesn’t offer a memory system.

The F-Type’s optional easy entry system raises the steering wheel when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Huracán doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

The F-Type’s front power windows open or close with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The Huracán’s power windows’ switches have to be held the entire time to close them fully.

The F-Type’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Huracán’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the F-Type detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Huracán doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

To help drivers avoid possible obstacles, the F-Type offers optional cornering lights to illuminate around corners when the turn signals are activated. The Huracán doesn’t offer cornering lights. The F-Type also offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle.

The F-Type’s standard rear view mirror and optional side view mirrors have an automatic dimming feature. These mirrors can be set to automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Huracán doesn’t offer the luxury of automatic dimming mirrors.

On extremely cold Winter days, the F-Type’s optional heated steering wheel provides comfort, allowing the driver to steer safely and comfortably before the car heater warms up. The Huracán doesn’t offer a heated steering wheel.

To help keep the driver’s hands on the wheel, the F-Type has standard steering wheel controls for the radio. The Huracán doesn’t offer steering wheel audio controls.
