2014 Jaguar XK vs. 2014 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 XK, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Jaguar XK may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class 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 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 XK and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XK is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Jaguar XK takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XK 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 XK and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Jaguar XK 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 XK comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
