2014 Jaguar XJ vs. 2013 Lexus IS-F Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Jaguar XJ you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus IS-F, due to its larger tank size and better 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 XJ will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus IS-F, 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 Lexus IS-F have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar XJ transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus IS-F.

Handling
The Jaguar XJ has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus IS-F, making it much 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 Lexus IS-F.

Utility
