2017 Audi A8 vs. 2017 Jaguar XJ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A8 than the Jaguar XJ. The Audi A8 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XJ.

Convenience
With the Audi A8 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jaguar XJ, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A8 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jaguar XJ. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Audi A8 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jaguar XJ.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A8 is much wider than the Jaguar XJ, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Audi A8 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jaguar XJ.

Drivetrain
The Audi A8 has much less torque than the Jaguar XJ, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi A8 has a larger turning radius than the Jaguar XJ, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A8 is significantly less powerful than the Jaguar XJ. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the Jaguar XJ. The Audi A8 has less cargo capacity than the Jaguar XJ, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A8 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar XJ.
