Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Jaguar F-TYPE, 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). Based on MSRP, the Jaguar F-TYPE is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. 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 S-Class.

Dimensions
The Jaguar F-TYPE is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. 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 S-Class.

Performance
The Jaguar F-TYPE has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
The Jaguar F-TYPE has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The Jaguar F-TYPE has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz S-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Jaguar F-TYPE as you will in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

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 S-Class.
