2015 Jaguar XK vs. 2014 BMW 550 Gran Turismo Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 550 Gran Turismo than the Jaguar XK, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XK, drivers may find the BMW 550 Gran Turismo a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the BMW 550 Gran Turismo you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Jaguar XK, due to its tank size and 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 XK will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, 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 XK and the BMW 550 Gran Turismo have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar XK is about the same width as the BMW 550 Gran Turismo. The Jaguar XK is slightly shorter than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Jaguar XK doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Handling
The Jaguar XK has a significantly smaller turning radius than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XK is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Utility
The Jaguar XK has less seating than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, making the BMW 550 Gran Turismo the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jaguar XK has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Jaguar XK comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.
