2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2015 Jaguar XF Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz S-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 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.

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
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.

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

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.
