2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 4MATIC vs 2018 Jaguar XE

Two brands that have been around forever continue to dominate the luxury car segment, and with 2018 there is a challenge to see who can produce the best midsize luxury sedan. There seems to be a definitive difference between the two, but don’t just take our word for it. Read on to see how these two compare as we weigh the pros and cons of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C 300 4MATIC vs 2018 Jaguar XE.

The biggest difference between these two lies in the horsepower. While the XE gets better fuel efficiency, that comes at the expense of power delivery. With 241 horsepower in the C 300 4MATIC compared to just 180 horsepower in the XE, you’re sure to notice a world of difference when it comes to power on the road. Interestingly enough, the XE gets better torque than the C 300 4MATIC, but the huge difference between the horsepower and torque in the XE makes us scratch our heads.

DISTRONIC PLUS

The thing about luxury cars that supposedly makes them better than the rest lies in the extras they give drivers. While the C 300 4MATIC offers many of these, one feature it has that the XE doesn’t is intelligent cruise control. The DISTRONIC PLUS Intelligent Cruise Control feature allows drivers of the 2018 C-Class to set a speed without having to manually adjust it for inconsistent traffic. We all know how frustrating it can be when you’re driving along the interstate and the driver in front of you keeps changing speeds and as a result you have to reset the cruise control. With DISTRONIC PLUS, let the C 300 4MATIC adjust your speed while you focus on other aspects of the road.
