2018 Porsche 911 vs. 2018 Jaguar XF

Jaguar XF may be a favorite among car buyers for its smooth acceleration, however the 2018 Porsche 911 speaks volumes with its high-performance powertrain and modern interior. If you are confused which one to go for, this comparison may help you out.

Design & Style

Both Porsche and Jaguar have done a good job in designing the exterior. Talking about the interior, the Jaguar XF is one masterpiece. The base model feels lavish with crazy indulgences, adding double-tone color combinations. Seats are quite comfortable and supportive, but taller passengers may have a hard time at the back, especially on long drives.

Compared to Jaguar XF, the 2018 Porsche 911 model is a step ahead with a stylish interior full of top-quality materials and soft-touch surfaces. You get a complete leather upholstery with comfortable front and rear seats offering ample legroom and headroom.

Technology & Safety

You would be disappointed with the technology features offered by the Jaguar XF. The InControl Touch system has complicated menus, glitchy functions and lag in response time. The plus point here is the buttons adorning the steering wheel and the 8-inch touch screen featuring excellent graphics and large menu buttons.

The 2018 Porsche 911 comes equipped with PCM (Porsche Communication Management) infotainment system, which includes smartphone integration through Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, Wi-Fi hotspot, two USB ports and Bluetooth. Front and rear parking sensors, along with a rearview camera are some of the standard active safety features.


With Jaguar XF, you have a choice of 4 engines; all of them supercharged or turbocharged, making sure it generates enough power to push the vehicle. The smaller engines have higher fuel efficiency, while the 380 HP V6 can literally burn a hole in your pocket.

On the other hand, the Porsche 911 gives you a number of options with a six-cylinder turbocharged engine. The base model can ramp a power in the range of 370-450 HP, and the vehicle has sufficient output for driving in any condition. If you are considering higher trims, you have 911 GT3 and 911 Turbo versions.

The Bottom Line

The comparison gives us a good idea as to how tough the competition is between the models in question. Both the 2018 Porsche 911 and the 2018 Jaguar XF have a lot of features to boast of, in terms of performance, design and technology. But at the end of the day, you need to choose one of them, and 911 is an unmatched choice with its superior amenities, smooth acceleration and driver assistance.
