2014 Jaguar F-TYPE vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 SLK-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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar F-TYPE is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jaguar F-TYPE, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar F-TYPE transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar F-TYPE is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 SLK-Class. The Jaguar F-TYPE has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Jaguar F-TYPE comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.
