2014 Jaguar XF vs. 2013 Lexus GS 450h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jaguar XF offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 450h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Lexus GS 450h will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XF.

Convenience
With the Lexus GS 450h 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus GS 450h. 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 Lexus GS 450h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar XF is a little narrower than the Lexus GS 450h, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jaguar XF, which is slightly longer than the Lexus GS 450h.

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 Lexus GS 450h.

Handling
The Jaguar XF has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 450h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XF has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus GS 450h. 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 Lexus GS 450h. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Jaguar XF will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus GS 450h.

Warranty
The Jaguar XF comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 450h.
