2020 BMW 5-Series vs 2020 Jaguar XF


The 2020 BMW 5 boasts of all the best in class technology features and has a premium interior with a sleek finish.  This luxury sedan is quite spacious and offers a cushioned ride to all its passengers. Due to its range of features and good performance, it lands a top position in our luxury midsize car rankings.

The 2020 Jaguar XF exhibits a comfortable interior, though it lacks some finer luxury touches.  The ride and handling are quite sublime and it delivers an engaging performance, however, the engines could be more refined.  The 2020 XF does not have an overall score because of its missing predicted reliability and safety data.

Design & Style

The Jaguar offers occupancy for five in both wagon and sedan styles. You will find plenty head- and legroom in both the rows for the adults. The front seats are quite supportive but massaging seats are missing. It has a comfortable interior that includes some premium materials; however, it lags behind its competition in terms of luxury standards.

The BMW is a 5 Seater with terrific front seats. Both front and rear seats offer plenty of head- and legroom. 5 Series’ seats are comfortable and supportive and adults don’t feel cramped in the back row. BMW cabin is designed with premium materials to give it a fine luxury finish. The car’s lavish interior doesn’t leave much to complain.

Technology & Safety

The XF’s is equipped with InControl Touch infotainment system that comes with a 10-inch touch screen. It has all the standard connectivity tools like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and USB port. Its 17-speaker Meridian audio system is apt for music lovers. Its infotainment system is user-friendly and easy to use, but its response to commands is quite slow. It also offers a pile of resources for driver’s aid like rearview camera, parking sensors, and emergency braking.

The 5 Series is rich with modern technology features to facilitate a smooth and fun ride experience. It includes BMW’s iDrive infotainment system, a touchpad controller, a 12-speaker stereo, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, etc. Its intuitive interface makes it convenient to use.  It’s plenty of safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure, Blind Spot Monitoring, Active Protection System, etc aid the driver in driving safely.


The XF no doubt is a competent vehicle; however, the base engine doesn’t offer enough power for an energetic on-road performance. 247-horsepower in its turbocharged four-cylinder engine works great for daily driving, but if you need something more potent you must go for a higher trim level with 296-hp or 380 hp V6 engine.

The 5 Series offers a number of engine choices in different trims. But you may go with any variation and would still find plenty of power and potent acceleration. The M trims are especially powerful with horsepower ranging from 523 to 617. It will spring from 0 to 60 mph in merely 3.6 seconds.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 BMW 5 Series is a fine luxury car with a good balance of power and comfort. Its smooth performance, robust engine, refined interior and user-friendly tech earns it a top position in our luxury midsize ranking. It brings a lot of enticing traits on the table and offers plenty of bangs for your buck.
