Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 230 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 230 as you will with the Jaguar F-TYPE, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 230 is clearly a better financial choice over the Jaguar F-TYPE. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 230 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 230 is much slimmer than the Jaguar F-TYPE, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 230 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Drivetrain
The BMW 230 has much less torque than the Jaguar F-TYPE, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 230 has a smaller turning radius than the Jaguar F-TYPE, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 230 is significantly less powerful than the Jaguar F-TYPE. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 230 offers greater seating capacity than the Jaguar F-TYPE, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 230 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 230 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar F-TYPE.
