2015 Jaguar XJ vs. 2015 BMW 550 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 550 than the Jaguar XJ, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 550 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XJ.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar XJ as you will with the BMW 550, 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 XJ will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 550, 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 XJ and the BMW 550 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar XJ is a little wider than the BMW 550, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Jaguar XJ, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 550.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Jaguar XJ doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 550.

Handling
The Jaguar XJ has a larger turning radius than the BMW 550, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XJ is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 550.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar XJ and the BMW 550. The Jaguar XJ has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW 550.

Warranty
The Jaguar XJ comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 550.
