Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 540 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Jaguar XF with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XF, the BMW 540 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 BMW 540, 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). Whether you pick the BMW 540 or the Jaguar XF, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 540 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jaguar XF.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 540 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 BMW 540 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jaguar XF.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 540 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Jaguar XF.

Handling
The BMW 540 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 BMW 540 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 BMW 540 and the Jaguar XF. The BMW 540 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Jaguar XF.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 540 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar XF.
