When looking for a luxury vehicle to suit your lifestyle, there's a lot to consider. You want a car that will be a dream to take on vacation and also make your daily driving a pleasure. That's why it's important to consider and compare the range of features that will make driving short and long distances more enjoyable.

Two of the most popular luxury models for 2018, the Jaguar F-Type R and the Mercedes AMG GT S, seem to fit the bill of a luxurious car perfect for one or two people, but how do they compare?

Luxury & Convenience

Luxury is no longer just about the looks and the sound system. While both the 2018 Jaguar F-Type R and the Mercedes AMG GT S have top-of-the-line attention assist devices, letting drivers know when they're starting to get tired, the Jaguar adds in additional features. It comes equipped with both a rear traffic monitor and lane assist, which help ensure you have a safe and smooth drive the whole way.

Of course, one of the great features of the Jaguar is the roomy trunk. With just over 14 cubic feet of storage space, there is plenty of room for suitcases during your travels. Compare that to the 10.1 cubic feet of storage in the 2018 Mercedes AMG GT S, and it's clear which might be better for your vacation.



Both the 2018 Jaguar F-Type R and the 2018 Mercedes AMG GT S have similar fuel economy, getting 23 and 22 mpg on the highway respectively, but the Jaguar puts out quite a bit more horsepower. At 550 hp, the 2018 Jaguar F-Type R has incredible acceleration and power output (compared to the 515 hp of the 2018 Mercedes AMG GT S). This allows it to host an incredible sound system, immersing you in your favorite songs.

Safety & Security

Many of the luxury features built into the 2018 Jaguar F-Type R double as safety features. Both cars do come equipped with smart airbags, reducing the risk of a driver or passenger being injured in the event of a crash. If you upgrade to the convertible, 2018 Jaguar F-Type R also has enhanced protection in the event your car rolls - something that makes convertibles safer than ever.


The 2018 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe's price tag fits its luxury stance. The base MSRP is $100,750, which is a steal when you compare it to the similar 2018 Mercedes AMG GT S, which has a base MSRP of $132,400. You don't have to give up on finding a good deal just because you're looking for the best luxury car around.

While both the 2018 Jaguar F-Type R and the 2018 Mercedes AMG GT S are luxury cars, the features built into the Jaguar make it a better choice for both longer vacations and for day-to-day commutes.
