2017 Jaguar XF vs. 2017 Audi S5
2017 Jaguar XF
2017 Audi S5
Next to the 2017 Jaguar XF, Huntington and New York City drivers will find that the 2017 Audi S5 looks underpowered and unimaginative. Audi has spent plenty of time and energy trying to push the S5 into the same realm as the Jaguar XF — but, as of yet, they’ve still come nowhere close to matching the iconic styling and performance that comes standard with the Jaguar.
The 2017 Jaguar XF allows Huntington and New York City drivers to select from two relentlessly powerful engines, with your choice of either diesel or gas. Options include:
- 3.0L Supercharged V6: It says a lot when your standard engine is able to produce up to 380 hp alongside 332 lb-ft of torque.
- 2.0L Four-Cylinder Turbodiesel: Delivers up to 180 hp and an astounding 318 lb-ft of torque, plus the legendary efficiency and durability of the diesel engine.
The 2017 Audi S5 falls staggeringly behind in this regard. Its standard engine is noticeably less powerful than the Jaguar XF’s supercharged V6, with horsepower peaking at 333. The S5 also completely lacks the option for diesel power, so you’ll find yourself a little hemmed in when it comes to engine options.
From the second you slip inside the cabin of the 2017 Jaguar XF, it’s clear you’re getting behind the wheel of something special. The dash-mounted started button will start slowly pulsing red until you press it — and when you do, the engine will roar into life and the motorized rotary gear selector will surge up from the central console.
The 2017 Audi S5 is a more humdrum affair, and it also offers drivers and passengers alike appreciably less space than they’d be able to look forward to in the Jaguar XF. Cargo room is particularly lacking in the Audi, with just 12.2 cubic feet in the trunk vs. a generous 19.1 in the trunk of the Jaguar XF.
The Jaguar XF’s bold, sleek exterior feels alive and vital even when the vehicle is at a standstill, and its technologies are just as impressive. The first things you’ll notice are the 10.2-inch InControl Touch Pro touchscreen infotainment system and the 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, but the Jaguar XF offers many other amenities that cannot be equipped wih the 2017 Audi S5, including:
- Wi-Fi Hotspot: Connect up to eight separate devices and then access the internet from the Jaguar XF’s inbuilt hotspot.
- Advanced Head-Up Display System: Vehicle speed, navigation, cruise control notifications, and Traffic Sign Recognition data are all beamed right onto your windshield.
