Overview

Jaguar's response to Europe's best compact luxury sedans, the XE offers high refinement and engaging performance at a price that's sure to attract new customers to the brand. So as not to get lost in this competitive field, the XE boasts plenty of Jaguar-esque touches, including weight-saving aluminum construction and an available supercharged V6 engine.

What's New for 2017

The XE is an all-new model.

Jaguar XE

Choosing Your Jaguar XE

Although the rear-drive XE is the smallest Jaguar sedan in years, its proportions are comparable to the well-established players in this class. There's decent room for four passengers, or five in a pinch. The body and chassis make liberal use of aluminum to keep weight in check and enhance performance and efficiency.

  • The engine roster starts with a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder that's good for 240 horsepower, strong output for a base engine in this class.
  • The optional supercharged 3-liter V6 offers 340 horsepower, enough to take the XE from zero to 60 mph in a scant 4.9 seconds.
  • For the efficiency-minded, there's a 2-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine on tap that makes 180-horsepower.

All engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is available with the V6 and turbodiesel. Standard across the board is Jaguar's All Surface Progress Control system, which modulates engine power and braking for maximum traction during slippery takeoffs.

The XE lineup is divided into three models that correspond to engine choice: 25t (base four-cylinder), 35t (supercharged V6), and 20d (turbodiesel). The 35t carries a firmer suspension and standard 18-inch wheels to go with its extra power.

Once you decide on the engine, you have a choice of trim levels:

Jaguar XE

XE (base)

Includes a leatherette interior with power front seats, a six-speaker sound system with HD radio, a sunroof, and 17-inch alloy wheels. (Note that the 35t starts at the next trim level.)

Jaguar XE

Premium

Adds conveniences like driver memory, a rearview camera, auto-dimming and power-folding side mirrors, and a split-folding rear seat. An 11-speakers Meridian sound system replaces the standard unit.

Jaguar XE

Prestige

Carries an upgraded interior with leather upholstery, expanded seat controls, heated front seats, ambient lighting, and a power-adjustable heated steering wheel. Keyless access and a navigation system are also standard. The 25t and 20d models receive 18-inch wheels; the 35t gets 19s.

Jaguar XE

R-Sport (35t and 20d only)

Gets a full complement of performance upgrades, including a sport-tuned suspense, 20-inch wheels, larger front air intakes, and a rear spoiler. Special R-Sport branding and trim are deployed throughout. You also get additional safety technology like lane keeping assist, collision mitigation with automatic braking, and front and rear parking sensors.

Many of the comfort and convenience features found on the Prestige are available on the lesser trim in small option packages. The Prestige and R-Sport are eligible for a fully adaptive suspension system.

CarsDirect Tip

We won't be surprised if the Prestige turns out to be the most popular trim level with buyers. It gives you a complete luxury car at a fair price and can be equipped upward if you choose.

With an aluminum body, a choice rear-wheel- or all-wheel-drive, and three engine options, Jaguar's latest compact sports sedan is equally at home on freeways and back roads and holds its own against the likes of the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes C-Class, and Cadillac ATS.

Pricing and Equipment

Available in four trims – base, Premium, Prestige, and R-Sport – the 2017 Jaguar XE prices start at $35,895 (including a $995 destination charge) for a base rear-driver with the 2.0-liter, turbocharged engine (the so-called 25t) and can rise to $67,000 for an optioned-out, all-wheel-drive R-Sport trim with a supercharged, 3.0-liter V6 (the 35t). We expect most buyers will pick a RWD 25t in mid-level Premium trim with a starting price of $38,495 and standard features like:

  • Heated outside mirrors
  • Remote engine start
  • Bluetooth audio and phone capability
  • Eight-inch color touchscreen infotainment display
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob
  • Proximity key with push-button start

A rearview camera is optional on base models, but standard on all other trims. Blind spot monitoring and auto-leveling headlights are optional on Premium and Prestige trims and standard on the R-Sport, while automatic high beams are optional on Prestige models and standard on the R-Sport. Lane departure warning is standard and only offered on the R-Sport, while radar cruise control, a surround-view camera, and all-speed automatic emergency braking, are optional on the R-Sport only.

XE buyers in the US can choose from three engines. The standard for rear-wheel-drive base, Premium, and Prestige models is a turbocharged, 240-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder, while R-sport buyers get a 340-hp, supercharged 3.0-liter V6 - which is also an option on Premium and Prestige models. The third offering, a 180-hp, 2.0-liter turbodiesel is offered across the lineup. The gas-powered turbo only works with rear-wheel-drive, while Jag offers the turbodiesel and V6 alongside an optional all-wheel drive. An eight-speed automatic transmission is the only way to fly.

Performance Pros

Jaguar XE
  • Ride and handling rival the best in this class, thanks to a double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension, lighter-weight aluminum body, and excellent electric power steering.
  • The suspension is nicely damped, and the XE tracks smoothly over nearly every type of road surface.
  • The easy way you can push the limits of the XE on back roads puts it at the front of the class in its segment and price range.

Performance Cons

  • The 2.0-liter turbodiesel exhibits some noticeable lag on acceleration.
  • At idle, because of the engine's low setting, a low-pitched drumming sound filters into the cabin.
  • Although the brakes work well, they're only adequate. With future higher-performance models, upgrades are a must.

Interior Pros

  • The XE's cabin veers toward the functional, avoiding the bling found in the XJ.
  • Jaguar's eight-inch touchscreen InControl infotainment system is standard, while opting for the Pro version ups the screen to 10.2 inches and adds navigation, a mobile hotspot, and a smartphone app with remote functionality.
  • The trunk features a wide opening, and the backseats split and fold forward for added cargo-hauling versatility.

Interior Cons

Jaguar XE
  • Even considering it's a compact, interior room is hardly spacious.
  • The InControl system can be fussy and, even with the Pro upgrade, the audio system is disappointing.
  • Like many vehicles in the class, back seat headroom and knee room is tight.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

The XE's ride and handling rivals that of the best in the compact luxury sports sedan segment.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

Although average for the class, the XE's second-row legroom lags behind competitors from Audi and BMW.

The Bottom Line

With top-of-the-class ride and handling and a restrained but luxurious interior, the Jaguar XE should finally put to rest memories of the oft-maligned X-Type.
