Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Jaguar F-TYPE you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Ford Mustang, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Ford Mustang 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 Ford Mustang and the Jaguar F-TYPE have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Mustang is a little wider than the Jaguar F-TYPE, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Ford Mustang, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Handling
The Ford Mustang has a larger turning radius than the Jaguar F-TYPE, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Mustang is somewhat more powerful than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Mustang transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Utility
The Ford Mustang offers greater seating capacity than the Jaguar F-TYPE, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Ford Mustang has less cargo capacity than the Jaguar F-TYPE, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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