Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 than in the Jaguar I-PACE, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jaguar I-PACE offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jaguar I-PACE, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Jaguar I-PACE or the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 I-PACE is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar I-PACE is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Jaguar I-PACE, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jaguar I-PACE does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450.

Handling
The Jaguar I-PACE has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Jaguar I-PACE has a little more horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450.

Utility
The Jaguar I-PACE has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, making the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jaguar I-PACE has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450.
