Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus LS 500 than the Jaguar XF. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus LS 500 and the Jaguar XF in the front seats.

Convenience
The Jaguar XF requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Lexus LS 500, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Lexus LS 500 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Jaguar XF, 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 Lexus LS 500 and the Jaguar XF have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus LS 500 is much slimmer than the Jaguar XF, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus LS 500, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jaguar XF.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Lexus LS 500 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Jaguar XF.

Handling
The Lexus LS 500 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Jaguar XF, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus LS 500 has a much more powerful engine than the Jaguar XF. 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 Lexus LS 500 and the Jaguar XF. The Lexus LS 500 has less cargo capacity than the Jaguar XF, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Lexus LS 500 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar XF.
