Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Jaguar F-TYPE, 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Jaguar F-TYPE, 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is about the same width as the Jaguar F-TYPE. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Jaguar F-TYPE, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Mercedes-Benz S-Class as you will in the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar F-TYPE.
