Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Cadenza than the Jaguar XE, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XE.

Convenience
The Jaguar XE will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Cadenza, 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). The Jaguar XE is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Cadenza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jaguar XE and the Kia Cadenza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XE is much wider than the Kia Cadenza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jaguar XE, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Cadenza.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar XE transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Kia Cadenza.

Handling
The Jaguar XE has about the same turning radius as the Kia Cadenza, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Jaguar XE has less horsepower than the Kia Cadenza, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar XE and the Kia Cadenza. The Jaguar XE has less cargo capacity than the Kia Cadenza, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Jaguar XE comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Cadenza.
