Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus RC 300 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Convenience
The Jaguar F-TYPE will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus RC 300, 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). The Jaguar F-TYPE will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus RC 300, 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 Lexus RC 300.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar F-TYPE is much wider than the Lexus RC 300, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jaguar F-TYPE, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lexus RC 300.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar F-TYPE does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus RC 300.

Handling
The Jaguar F-TYPE has a larger turning radius than the Lexus RC 300, 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 Lexus RC 300. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Jaguar F-TYPE has less seating than the Lexus RC 300, making the Lexus RC 300 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Jaguar F-TYPE will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus RC 300.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar F-TYPE than that of the Lexus RC 300.
