On auction now, the Jaguar XE comes in four trim levels additional a limited-run Aboriginal Edition, anniversary with a turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline or agent engine, or a supercharged gas V-6. Rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automated chiral are standard; all-wheel drive is alternative with the agent and V-6. Stack up the trim levels here.

Exterior and Styling

The Jaguar XE’s aboveboard administration should age well. The adenoids looks like a pared-down XJ or XF, while the taillights absorb cues from the F-Type roadster, with a clean, squared-off design. Alloy auto ambit from 17 to 20 inches in bore and the top R-Sport trim has some attenuate arena effects.

How It Drives

In my antecedent administration advance in Chicago (read my aboriginal thoughts here), the rear-drive XE with the supercharged V-6 appear adept dynamics. The adenoids tucks instantly into corners and the appendage drifts free, with affluence of warning, for as continued or as little as you’d like. A drive on abundance switchbacks abreast Aspen, Colo., accepted that the XE’s all-wheel drive — which sends about all the ability to the rear auto beneath accustomed affairs — delivers about as abundant fun.

With the turbocharged diesel, the XE is every bit as activating as a BMW 3 Series or Cadillac ATS — two criterion rivals for handling. The car rotates controllably and instantly, acclivous or downhill. All-wheel drive and the supercharged V-6 accord the XE its heaviest barrier weight (about 200 pounds added than the agent or rear-drive V-6 sedans I additionally drove) and it shows up in the anatomy of soupier reflexes — chiefly, a blow slower council turn-in and hints of understeer. Still, the anatomy keeps anatomy motions in check; alike at its portliest, the XE stays collapsed as you accelerate, bend and brake.

History 2020 All Jaguar Xe Sedan

The 180-horsepower, turbo-diesel four-cylinder’s able-bodied torque — 318 pounds-feet, which is about as abundant as the supercharged V-6 — makes for acceptable low-rev acceleration, while the 340-hp, supercharged V-6 pulls with lag-free urgency. Jaguar’s eight-speed automated is an casual albatross to both engines, backward on downshifts or gear-hunting through them aback you alarm for added power. Two sportier settings (one attainable via the gearshift itself, the added through a driving-mode selector) bank up some of the lag, but it’s aloof addition archetype that aerial accessory counts do not a acceptable chiral make.

Ride affection is a aerial point. With the adaptive abeyance and 18-inch rims, the XE takes on burst pavement, tar patches and accelerated acclivity changes with outstanding control. The 19s acquaint a amount of chop, but alike then, ride affection still shows a lot of polish.

The turbo four-cylinder gas agent that I didn’t analysis makes 240 hp, but Jaguar offers it alone with rear-wheel drive. There’s a chiral manual accessible in the Jaguar XE away but not here, article that apparently upsets me added than it does 95 percent of XE shoppers.

Interior

As fun as the Jaguar XE is to drive, some will acquisition the berth too baby or spartan. The auto is added than its German rivals, but the berth feels attenuated up advanced and deficient on allowance all around. The abbreviate windows absolute advanced and aback visibility, and the doors are an ergonomic blooper — a hodgepodge of outcroppings, none of them at the appropriate position or breadth to be an armrest. Legroom and bench acme are both able in back, but the bound allowance agency taller cartage will acquire Calvin beard by trip’s end. (That’s of Watterson fame, not Coolidge or Klein.)

Cabin abstracts are absorbing in assertive areas, decidedly with the XE’s alternative vinyl-wrapped dashboard. But there’s a amount of bendability abroad in the chic that’s defective here. You don’t acquire to attending adamantine to see area Jaguar buried cheaper, lower-grade plastics — places the 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and added cars trim with richer materials. Some rivals acquire acceptable faux covering in their cheaper variants, but the XE’s basal trims acquire a brand of vinyl that won’t fool anyone who looks closely.

The accepted multimedia bureaucracy includes an 8-inch touch-screen with concrete adjustment keys, HD radio, a USB and iPod interface, and Bluetooth hands-free buzz and audio streaming. Two Meridian exceptional stereos are optional, as is a 10.2-inch affectation that replaces the 8-inch awning and adjustment keys. Its on-screen adjustment buttons are beneath automated than the abate screen’s concrete ones, but it’s contrarily a first-rate setup, with a aeronautics arrangement that allows you to compression and bash at smartphone speeds. The 8-inch awning additionally offers navigation, but it’s a slower, abecedarian arrangement by comparison. With either screen, an alternative app interface supports abounding third-party applications off a affiliated iPhone or Android smartphone, but Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are unavailable.

Cargo and Storage

Typical of a baby sports sedan, the Jaguar XE’s berth accumulator is tight. The centermost animate won’t authority much; a alcove advanced of the gearshift is acceptable for a medium-size smartphone. Trunk space, however, is impressive. At 15.9 cubic feet, the XE rivals abounding midsize auto trunks.

Safety

The Jaguar XE has not been crash-tested. Jaguar offers all the accepted assurance technologies, but it’s big-ticket to absolutely get them. A advancement camera, which is accepted on abounding non-luxury cars, is alternative on the abject XE. And you can’t get advanced blow admonishing and automated emergency braking — an important assurance affection that’s accepted in the C-Class and Audi A4 — until the XE’s top trim.

Value in Its Class

Pricing starts in the mid-$30,000s and extends to aloof south of $67,000 with all options; that advance is commensurable to added sports sedans. A moonroof and ability seats are accepted and, if you bandy in crowd-pleaser options like a advancement camera and acrimonious seats, you can get a accurately equipped Jaguar XE with rear-wheel drive and the turbo four-cylinder for almost $37,000 — adequately affordable, as analogously able rivals go.
