2014 Jaguar XK vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XK, drivers may find the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz SL-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). Based on MSRP, the Jaguar XK is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz SL-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 XK and the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XK is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

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

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

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

Utility
The Jaguar XK offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Jaguar XK has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
