2016 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
With the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Jaguar F-TYPE, due to its tank size and 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). The Jaguar F-TYPE will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which has a much lower MSRP. 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
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar F-TYPE does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

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
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar F-TYPE has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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.
