Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura RLX offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jaguar XF. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XF, the Acura RLX may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Jaguar XF requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Acura RLX, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RLX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jaguar XF. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jaguar XF.

Dimensions
Since the Acura RLX is much slimmer than the Jaguar XF, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Acura RLX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jaguar XF.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Acura RLX and the Jaguar XF do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Acura RLX has a larger turning radius than the Jaguar XF, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura RLX is somewhat more powerful than the Jaguar XF.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the Jaguar XF. The Acura RLX 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 basic warranty of the Acura RLX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar XF.
