Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jaguar XF offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz E-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 XF and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jaguar XF as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-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 XF or the Mercedes-Benz E-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 Destination Charge for the Jaguar XF is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XF is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
The Jaguar XF has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
The Jaguar XF has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Jaguar XF has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz E-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jaguar XF has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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