2016 Jaguar XJ vs. 2017 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
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 E-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). 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
The Jaguar XJ is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar XJ does a much better job of transmitting 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 a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar XJ than that of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
