Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Jaguar XE than in the Kia Stinger, due to the Jaguar XE's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Kia Stinger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XE.

Convenience
With the Jaguar XE you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Stinger, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Jaguar XE or the Kia Stinger, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Jaguar XE will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Stinger.

Dimensions
Since the Jaguar XE is much wider than the Kia Stinger, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Jaguar XE is slightly shorter than the Kia Stinger, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Jaguar XE has much less torque than the Kia Stinger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Jaguar XE has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Stinger, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XE is significantly less powerful than the Kia Stinger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar XE and the Kia Stinger. The Jaguar XE has significantly less cargo room than the Kia Stinger, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Jaguar XE comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Stinger.
