Offering the perfect blend of refinement, performance and fuel-efficiency, the Jaguar XE is an award-winning executive saloon. The XE is the entry point to the Jaguar range, being the most compact and the most affordable model in the luxurious line-up. There are five trim levels on offer: SE, Prestige, R-Sport, Portfolio and S.
The sleek form of the XE is highly aerodynamic, complemented by specially designed aerodynamic alloy wheels which are fitted as standard. The XE is unmistakeably a Jaguar, with swept-back headlights, J-Blade LED daytime running lights and a sculpted bonnet. The R-Sport and S variants add an athletic body kit or you can choose the Portfolio trim with Xenon headlights.
The cabin is designed to offer premium comfort, with leather upholstery and heated, eight-way adjustable seats as standard on Prestige trims and above. The driver-oriented cockpit is streamlined, with a touchscreen which gives intuitive access to the XE’s many infotainment technologies. Passengers will enjoy stretching out on the spacious back seat and there is a practical 455-litre boot.
Buyers have a choice of a 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine with 161bhp or 178bhp, a 2.0-litre petrol unit with 197bhp or 237bhp or a flagship V6 engine with 335bhp. When equipped with this engine, the XE accelerates from 0-60mph in less than five seconds. If you opt for the lower-powered diesel variant CO2 emissions are just 99g/km – but it still achieves a 0-60mph time of around eight seconds.
Each variant in the XE line-up is fitted with Jaguar’s excellent InControl infotainment system which is operated through a 10.2-inch touchscreen. This system includes smartphone integration with many useful apps. Jaguar also offer technologies to enhance driving dynamics and safety, such as All Surface Progress Control as standard on automatic models. The XE is one of the safest cars in its class, with a five-star Euro NCAP rating.
