2016 Jaguar F-TYPE vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Jaguar F-TYPE, 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 Jaguar F-TYPE is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jaguar F-TYPE will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar F-TYPE is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Jaguar F-TYPE is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Jaguar F-TYPE has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Jaguar F-TYPE has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Jaguar F-TYPE has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar F-TYPE and the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. The Jaguar F-TYPE has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar F-TYPE than that of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
