2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2016 Jaguar XF Review

Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class than the Jaguar XF. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Jaguar XF in the front seats.

With the Jaguar XF you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 S-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. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jaguar XF.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a little wider than the Jaguar XF, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jaguar XF.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Jaguar XF.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a larger turning radius than the Jaguar XF, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Jaguar XF. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Jaguar XF.

The basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar XF.
