Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-TYPE, drivers may find the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar F-TYPE is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Jaguar F-TYPE doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Handling
The Jaguar F-TYPE has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Jaguar F-TYPE and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Utility
The Jaguar F-TYPE has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, making the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar F-TYPE than that of the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.
