Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 than in the Jaguar E-PACE, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar E-PACE, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar E-PACE as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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). The Jaguar E-PACE is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Jaguar E-PACE and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jaguar E-PACE is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. If you go with the Jaguar E-PACE, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Handling
The Jaguar E-PACE has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 is clearly the choice over the Jaguar E-PACE for pulling heavy loads. The Jaguar E-PACE has a little less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Jaguar E-PACE and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jaguar E-PACE and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. The Jaguar E-PACE has less cargo space than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar E-PACE than that of the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.
