If you’re looking for a world-class executive sedan with spacious accommodations and plenty of luxury to go around, there are only a few real contenders on the market today. Two of the most noteworthy and talked-about models are the 2017 Jaguar XJ and the 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. While both of these premium sedans serve up impressive performance numbers and head-turning style both inside and out, there are some substantive differences worth considering—particularly when it comes to the features you get for the money. See why the new Jaguar XJ provides the greatest value for your dollar when you’re shopping for a new luxury vehicle.

Standard Features

There’s no arguing that the cabins of both the Jaguar XJ and Mercedes-Benz S-Class are quite opulently equipped, delivering standard features like a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, satellite radio, and HD Radio, power adjustable front seats, and a power adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. However, the Jaguar XJ base trim seriously outclasses its competitor by including numerous standard features you’ll only find as upgrades on the base Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Only the Jaguar XJ comes automatically equipped with:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Cooled front seats
  • Heated rear seats
  • Portable Wi-Fi hotspot

On top of that, the Jaguar XJ provides drivers with an immersive standard 14-speaker Meridian sound system, while the Mercedes-Benz S-Class only gets a standard 13-speaker sound system.

Somehow, while the Jaguar XJ offers quite a few standard amenities you won’t find in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, it also comes with a starting price that’s more than $20,000 less than that of the S-Class:

  • Jaguar XJ – MSRP from $74,400
  • Mercedes-Benz S-Class – MSRP from $96,600

Let’s say you want to go all in, though—money isn’t an issue, and you want the most advanced model available in the lineup. Again, the Jaguar is the smarter option, with the top-of-the-line Jaguar XLR LWB coming in at $121,000, a starting MSRP you’ll find to be well under the price of several of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class models. Money may not be a factor, but why would you want to pay more only to get less?
