Jaguar XE Review

May 21, 2015

With the 2015 Jaguar XE expected to arrive on our roads any day now, all eyes are on the British brand. A rival for cars like the Audi A4, this sexy saloon combines a sporty ride with pure executive class. In today’s Jaguar XE review, we’ll take a look at what the car brings to its class – and if you’re looking for Jaguar finance, our range of affordable options could help you get behind the wheel of an XE of your own.


With slim headlights outfront and a wraparound dashboard design inside, it’s clear from just one glance that the XE is a Jag. Climb inside the saloon and space is generous up front and in the rear, making it practical for passengers of all sizes. While you’re unlikely to be buying a Jaguar XE because of its practicality, the car comes kitted out with generously sized door bins and cupholders, providing plenty of in-car storage. Boasting 455 litres, there’s also adequate space in the boot and all three rear seats fold down individually to provide storage space for longer items.

Performance & Handling

Buyers concerned with low running costs are likely to opt for the entry-level Jaguar XE, which emits just 99g/km of CO2 – making it exempt from road tax. This efficient 2.0 litre diesel engine returns 75mpg and boasts an impressive 0-62mph time of 8.4secs. If you’d prefer a petrol engine, there are three automatics available with the XE. The 2.0 litre petrol comes with two powertrains; the 197bhp has a 0-62mph time of 7.7secs while the 238bhp makes it to 62mph in 6.8secs. Topping the range is the super-quick V6 petrol engine, which tops out at 155mph and manages 0-62mph in a smashing 5.1secs.


The Jaguar XE is available in five trim levels, with the entry-level SE model coming equipped with rear parking sensors, cruise control and Sat Nav. Moving through the specs, the Prestige model adds leather seating and the luxurious Portfolio trim comes kitted with various upholstery options and electrically adjustable seats. The R-Sport model is the sportiest trim of the lot, with sports suspension, a bodykit and sports seats.
