Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 300h than the Jaguar XF, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XF, drivers may find the Lexus ES 300h a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar XF as you will with the Lexus ES 300h, 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 XF will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus ES 300h, 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 XF is much higher than that for the Lexus ES 300h.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XF is much wider than the Lexus ES 300h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Jaguar XF takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus ES 300h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar XF does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 300h.

Handling
The Jaguar XF has a smaller turning radius than the Lexus ES 300h, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XF has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 300h. 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 XF and the Lexus ES 300h. The Jaguar XF has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus ES 300h.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Jaguar XF than that of the Lexus ES 300h.
