Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-TYPE, drivers may find the BMW Z4 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar F-TYPE as you will with the BMW Z4, 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). The Jaguar F-TYPE will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW Z4, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jaguar F-TYPE is much higher than that for the BMW Z4.

Dimensions
The Jaguar F-TYPE is a little wider than the BMW Z4, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jaguar F-TYPE, which is slightly longer than the BMW Z4.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar F-TYPE transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW Z4.

Handling
The Jaguar F-TYPE has a larger turning radius than the BMW Z4, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar F-TYPE has a much more powerful engine than the BMW Z4. 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 Jaguar F-TYPE and the BMW Z4. The Jaguar F-TYPE has significantly less cargo room than the BMW Z4, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar F-TYPE than that of the BMW Z4.
