2014 Jaguar XF vs. 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 3 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Jaguar XF offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3. The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XF.

Convenience
With the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Jaguar XF, 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 XF will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3, 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 XF and the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar XF is about the same width as the BMW ActiveHybrid 3. If you go with the Jaguar XF, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar XF does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.

Handling
The Jaguar XF has about the same turning radius as the BMW ActiveHybrid 3, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XF has a much more powerful engine than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3. 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 XF and the BMW ActiveHybrid 3. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Jaguar XF will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.

Warranty
The Jaguar XF comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.
