Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jaguar XE offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Jaguar XE and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar XE 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). Whether you pick the Jaguar XE or the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Jaguar XE will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XE is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Jaguar XE takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jaguar XE and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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

Performance
The Jaguar XE has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Jaguar XE has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar XE than that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
