Comparison Review

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

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar F-TYPE is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Jaguar F-TYPE is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar F-TYPE transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The Jaguar F-TYPE has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar F-TYPE has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz C-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jaguar F-TYPE has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
