With close to 8" of ground clearance and very short overhangs, the I-PACE is obviously going to be capable of travel over far more challenging surfaces than an X, or your forester

ISTR seeing approach/departure angles for my Forester somewhere (maybe in the owner's manual) but don't have that handy, and can't find it online for it or the Jag, although I did find some info comparing the 2016 Forester and Outback at https://www.reddit.com/r/subaru/comment ... tter_than/
, not that that's relevant to my 2003 or the I-Pace.
As you can see, the Forester beats the Jag in every off-road relevant dimensional category except height (with approach/departure angles unknown), but while I chose it over the Outback partly for its shorter length and better turning circle (for making those multi-point U-turns when the 1-lane road ends and you don't want to back 1/2 mile) as well as it being IIRR 200 lb. lighter, that still doesn't make it a Jeep, Land Rover, Land Cruiser. G-class or (getting really obscure here, but I've seen a few) Pinzgauer. The lack of a low range and locking hubs/differentials as well as much too limited ground clearance precludes that.
