2014 Jaguar XK vs. 2014 Lexus IS 350C Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus IS 350C 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 Lexus IS 350C a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Lexus IS 350C 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 Lexus IS 350C, 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 Lexus IS 350C have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XK is much wider than the Lexus IS 350C, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jaguar XK, which is slightly longer than the Lexus IS 350C.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar XK does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus IS 350C.

Handling
The Jaguar XK has a larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 350C, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XK has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus IS 350C. 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 XK and the Lexus IS 350C. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Jaguar XK as you will in the Lexus IS 350C.

Warranty
The Jaguar XK comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus IS 350C.
