2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 3 vs. 2014 Jaguar XF Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 than in the Jaguar XF, due to the BMW ActiveHybrid 3's smaller rear head- and legroom. The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XF.

Convenience
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Jaguar XF, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is clearly a better financial choice over the Jaguar XF. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 and the Jaguar XF have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is about the same width as the Jaguar XF. If you go with the BMW ActiveHybrid 3, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Jaguar XF.

Drivetrain
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 has much less torque than the Jaguar XF, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 has about the same turning radius as the Jaguar XF, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is significantly less powerful than the Jaguar XF. 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 BMW ActiveHybrid 3 and the Jaguar XF. The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 has significantly less cargo room than the Jaguar XF, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jaguar XF.
