hola my first new topic here on MCF 

 

currently considering these 2 (or rather 3) cars but really having difficulty deciding between another.

 

i have test drove only the Lexus GS450H among this, unless including the '08 XF 3.0 v6 petrol.

 

First of all just listing some of my opinions on the cars,

 

LEXUS GS450h (2010)

 

Likes

-SUPERB SUPERB Torque and power (254Kw) , Non-stop acceleration until there is not enough numbers on the speedometer

-AWESOME handling even at high speeds (+sports suspension works)

-The seats are far more comfortable and better feeling than on the Jag XF (maybe cause asian body?)

-Easier to use infotaintment system than on the XF

-crystal clear Mark levinson sound system

 

dislikes

-brand (aka face value) still bit of a setback on this. Some people say lexus for uncle lexus is expensive toyota .....

- interior not as posh as on Jag XF. bit boring la basically

-boot space (yes, hybrid batteries... but not that important)

 

Jaguar XF 2.2D /2.0T (2012 facelift)

 

Likes

- aircon vents and gear knob elevation ( every jag owner knows (: )

-POSH super luxurious interior, slightly less dated compared to Lexus

-ITS A JAG

- Diesel efficiency of 1000km full tank (2.2D)

 

dislikes

- the infotainment system seems a lot more complicated and difficult to use than on the Lexus

- engine specs nowhere near the lexus for both the 2.0 or 2.2 ( lexus really no fight in this segment )

- seats (as mentioned above)

- diesel clatter and pumping together with lorries and vans (for 2.2D)

- 100hp less but drinks more than lexus (2.0T)

 

anyone owns one of these cars can give an opinion? 

 

cheers bros, safe driving :)

Hi i dont own either but my dad used to drive the old lexus GS450H that you mentioned before trading in for the new GS450H in 2012.

 

Basically horsepower plus acceleration wise the Lexus is a clear winner.

 

Comfort wise lexus has the edge too.

 

He had to change the batteries once though expensive if getting from borneo

think he was quoted almost 10k . Luckily he extended the warranty to 5 years and the battery gave way just before the warranty was over.

 

Other than the battery, no issues to report reliability wise.

Should be fuss free motoring other than normal wear and tear servicing

 

Cant comment on the jaguar other than i think jaguar has more snob and badge appeal than Lexus even though the specs cant match the lexus.

Lexus and Jaguar are at the opposite ends of the reliability scale. Enough said....

You have stated more pros than cons for Lexus than for the Jaguar.

Maybe you already have the answer.

 

But take note the Lexus is using a hybrid drivetrain and make sure you have a secured a warranty for the battery in case the battery fails, given the car is already 8 years old.

Seems like you want good FC and some power and some luxury.

 

Try to find a BMW or Audi 3.0 Turbodiesel then?
