2017 Jaguar F-TYPE vs. 2016 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar F-TYPE as you will with the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). The Jaguar F-TYPE is somewhat more expensive than 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 wider than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Jaguar F-TYPE is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Jaguar F-TYPE doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Handling
The Jaguar F-TYPE has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar F-TYPE is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

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.
