2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2018 Jaguar XF

In the elite segment of midsize luxury sedans, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class returns as a perennial favorite among many drivers around Vallejo. Discerning drivers do their research, though, which is why it’s worth taking the time to compare the E-Class to the 2018 Jaguar XF. While the Jaguar sedan is attractive and stylish enough, it doesn’t match the standards set by the E-Class when it comes to standard and available technology. Do your research with this head-to-head comparison, and then find new luxury vehicle specials right now at Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield, located in Fairfield near Napa.

Standard & Available Features

Both of these vehicles are elite luxury sedans, so it will come as no surprise that both models come standard with soft-touch cabin materials, an integrated navigation system, a climate control system, and power front seats. However, the E-Class gets a 12.3-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, while the Jaguar XF only gets an 8-inch touchscreen, and doesn’t even offer Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ as an option.

Engine Specs

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and 2018 Jaguar XF are both offered with four capable engine options, but the E-Class easily outclasses the XF across the line:
