2016 Jaguar XJ vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class than the Jaguar XJ, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz S-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 S-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). Based on MSRP, the Jaguar XJ is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz S-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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Dimensions
The Jaguar XJ is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. When looking at overall length, the Jaguar XJ takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

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

Handling
The Jaguar XJ has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

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 S-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 S-Class.
