2015 Jaguar XJ vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class than the Jaguar XJ, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz CLS-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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jaguar XJ will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar XJ is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jaguar XJ, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.

Drivetrain
The Jaguar XJ has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Jaguar XJ has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Jaguar XJ has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Jaguar XJ offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Jaguar XJ as you will in the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.

Warranty
The Jaguar XJ comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.
