2015 Jaguar XJ vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Jaguar XJ, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XJ is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar XJ transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XJ has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 XJ and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Jaguar XJ has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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