Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jaguar XE than the Nissan Maxima. The Nissan Maxima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XE.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar XE as you will with the Nissan Maxima, 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 XE is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Maxima. 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 XE is much higher than that for the Nissan Maxima.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XE is much wider than the Nissan Maxima, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Jaguar XE is slightly shorter than the Nissan Maxima, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jaguar XE and the Nissan Maxima do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Performance
The Jaguar XE has less horsepower than the Nissan Maxima, 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 Nissan Maxima. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Jaguar XE as you will in the Nissan Maxima.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar XE than that of the Nissan Maxima.
