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 XF than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Jaguar XF and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Jaguar XF you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Jaguar XF is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. 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 XF and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Jaguar XF is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jaguar XF, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Jaguar XF doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Handling
The Jaguar XF has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar XF and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Jaguar XF will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.
