2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class vs. 2015 Jaguar XF Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jaguar XF than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and the Jaguar XF in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class as you will with the Jaguar XF, 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). The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Jaguar XF, 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 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and the Jaguar XF have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Jaguar XF.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Jaguar XF.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has less seating than the Jaguar XF, making the Jaguar XF the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has less cargo capacity than the Jaguar XF, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jaguar XF.
