Today we will bring you the fight between two coupes. On the ring we can see the 2013 Jaguar XK-Series and the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class. Did we expect something like this to happen? No, Jaguar is a great car that can hardly find the competitors in the model range, while Mercedes is the true connotation of style from the German automaker, so this could be really interesting, as both marquees has the aggressive nature behind the big names. Let’s make a bet? How much are you ready to put?

We start with price. For the Jaguar you will have to pay around $84,500, while for Mercedes-Benz, even though a little less, still quite a heavy sum of money that is equal to $73,800. Let’s now dig into the inside of both those models and see for what exactly they are asking this crazy amount of money. Jaguar has at its base model the 5.0L V8 capable of 385-horsepower. And the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class got the 4.7L V8, but with more ponies, particularly with 402-horsepower. So what can we see? Do you already have a hit who is the winner? No? What if we tell you that the number of valves is the same, and the fuel economy features are also the same. We only can add that Jaguar got itself rear-wheel drive, but the Mercedes-Benz has 4×4 wheel drive.
