2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 4MATIC® vs 2018 Jaguar XF
Midsize sedans dominate the automotive market. You might think that narrowing your search to only luxury cars you’d be left with a more narrow supply, but there are still a lot of big names you’ll feel obligated to take into consideration. A side by side comparison is usually the best way to look at things without making it appear one-sided, so we’re going to give you that luxury as we compare the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 4MATIC® vs 2018 Jaguar XF.
No one wants to be stuck in cold weather. If you decide to make the 2018 E 300 4MATIC® your own, you’ll have state-of-the-art performance on your side. That’s because this sedan comes with Mercedes-Benz’s own 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system that works by intelligently shifting the vehicle’s torque into the wheels that can use it best when the roads get slippery or rough. This signature AWD system is made to give you better traction and control even on the worst days.

Let’s take another look at performance, shall we? Luxury cars, especially sporty luxury cars like these two, are purchased with the expectation that they drive adrenaline and excitement within the driver. A difference of 61 horsepower goes a long way, but there’s so much more to it than that. By upping the ante and making the E 300 4MATIC® a 9-speed automatic, transitioning between gears will be virtually seamless. Most luxury brands stop at around seven or eight gears, but you probably already knew Mercedes-Benz isn’t like those other brands. The turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 DOHC engine will take you to places you didn’t even think possible.
That’s enough out of us. Talk is just talk; to truly see the E 300 4MATIC® in all its glory, stop by Mercedes-Benz of Indianapolis to give it a test drive. Just be sure to bring a comb for afterwards.
