Factors to Consider when Choosing between a Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz and a Pre-Owned Jaguar

Last updated 4 years ago

Many people are surprised to learn that pre-owned luxury vehicles are actually a fantastic value. Discovering this value often prompts people to research the many options for used luxury performance vehicles, such as Land Rover, BMW, and others. Here’s a quick breakdown of what you should look for if you are trying to decide whether a Mercedes-Benz or a Jaguar would suit you better:


Any luxury brand will offer a comfortable ride and plenty of features, but there are always subtle differences. Take, for example, comparable models from 2007: the Mercedes-Benz CLS550 and the Jaguar XJ8. Both offer spacious cabins appointed with leather and high-tech accessories. The Jaguar, however, features beautiful wood trim and a more accommodating back row, outclassing the Mercedes in this category.


Mercedes-Benz has long been known for performance, and even has an entire subdivision devoted to fine-tuning engines to create true supercars. So while the Jaguar XJ8 is no slouch, it’s not very surprising that the Mercedes is the winner in this category. A 5.5L V-8, new in the 2007 model, propels the CLS550 to a 0-60 time that is nearly a full second faster than the XJ8 and its 4.2L engine.


This is one area that really comes down to personal taste. Jaguars have a look that all but screams British racing prowess, while the three-pointed star of Mercedes-Benz and the strong stance of every Mercedes vehicle are recognized the world over for reliability and class. Each also came in different factory colors, so that may be a factor to consider as well.
