Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-TYPE, the BMW Z4 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW Z4 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 Z4 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 Z4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Dimensions
The BMW Z4 is a little narrower than the Jaguar F-TYPE, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The BMW Z4 is slightly shorter than the Jaguar F-TYPE, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The BMW Z4 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 Z4 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.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the BMW Z4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW Z4 and the Jaguar F-TYPE. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW Z4 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW Z4 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar F-TYPE.
