Learn who Comes Out on Top in This Battle of the Luxury Sedans

In the premium sedan class, there are plenty of options available for the discerning Long Island driver. However, two models routinely sit at the head of the class, year after year. Those models? The Jaguar XE and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Each has more than its fair share of fans, so we thought it would be a good idea to conduct a head-to-head comparison of the two so our friends and neighbors can decide which best meets their needs.


We compared the Jaguar XE 25t model to the Mercedes-Benz C 300, each an entry-level model. Right off the bat, the Jaguar XE comes in with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price that's more than $4,000 lower than the C-Class option, savings that you can either apply towards adding features or jumping up in trim level.


Each sedan comes with a standard 2.0-liter inline-four engine, and performance metrics are remarkably similar for these engines -- even though the C-Class has slightly higher horsepower and torque, that difference is achieved at a higher rpm that puts the engine through more stress.

Both the Jaguar XE and the C 300 are estimated to deliver fuel efficiency of 34 mpg on the highway, but the Jaguar XE is estimated to earn 25 mpg in the city -- the C-Class is less city-efficient, with 23 mpg.


These wouldn't be luxury sedans if they didn't come with such standard features as variable speed intermittent wipers, rain-sensing wipers, heated exterior mirrors, remote engine start, power front seats, dual-zone climate control, wireless cell phone connectivity, and a trip computer. However, the entry-level Jaguar XE comes with standard features that the more-expensive base C-Class only offers as costly options. These include daytime running lights, brake assist, keyless start, cruise control, a power tilt/sliding sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote trunk release and an onboard hands-free communication system.


The Jaguar XE is backed by a 5-year/60,000-mile basic new car limited warranty, 5-year/unlimited-mileage corrosion protection, 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, and a 5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan. In contrast, the C-Class only offers four years and 50,000 miles of protection for each category, putting you at risk of having to pay for repairs and roadside assistance much sooner than you will with the Jaguar XE.

The Jaguar XE Sedan is Waiting For You

We invite you to visit our Huntington showroom and examine the Jaguar XE in person. We believe that once you see all that it has to offer, you'll agree that it's the much better value of these two luxury sedans.
