Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A8 than the Jaguar XF. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XF, the Audi A8 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 Audi A8, 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). The Audi A8 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 Audi A8 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jaguar XF.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A8 is much slimmer than the Jaguar XF, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi A8, 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 Audi A8 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Jaguar XF.

Handling
The Audi A8 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Jaguar XF, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A8 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.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the Jaguar XF. The Audi A8 has significantly less cargo room than the Jaguar XF, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A8 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar XF.
