Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW M5 than the Jaguar XJ. The BMW M5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XJ.

Convenience
The Jaguar XJ requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M5, 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). Whether you pick the BMW M5 or the Jaguar XJ, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 M5 and the Jaguar XJ have similar Destination Charges.
