Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Jaguar F-TYPE and the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 in the front seats.

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 SLC 300, 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 SLC 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 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar F-TYPE is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 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 may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar F-TYPE transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300.

Handling
The Jaguar F-TYPE has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300, 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 SLC 300. 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 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300. The Jaguar F-TYPE has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300, 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 SLC 300.
