2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2014 Jaguar XF Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jaguar XF will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz S-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jaguar XF, due to its larger tank size and better 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 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. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Jaguar XF have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is much wider than the Jaguar XF, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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.

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

Handling
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.

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

Utility
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.

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