FAQs

Frequently asked questions about the Jaguar XE

  • What is the Jaguar XE?
  • The XE is Jaguar’s compact executive four-door saloon and the cheapest route into Jag ownership. Think of it as a shrunken XF Saloon - both conceptually and in its understated styling. Disappointingly, only one bodystyle is available; unlike German rivals, there is no option of an estate, convertible or coupe XE. It’s saloon or nothing.

    Rivals to consider if you’re thinking of buying the XE include the more popular Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Saloons. This German trio provides a degree more choice in engines, trims and bodystyles on offer, or you could take a look at the Volvo S60 for a more Swedish take on the upmarket small four-door. The XE may appeal to those wanting a change from the Teutonic hegemony in this compact executive marketplace. They’ll find a slick, if rather unremarkable-looking, four-door that’s tight on space, but big on driving thrills.
  • Which versions of the Jaguar XE are available?
  • Launched in 2015, and succeeding the unloved X-Type in Jaguar’s compact saloon range, the XE looked immediately more contemporary, if a little unimaginative. With a single bodystyle to choose from, your choices are limited to picking the petrol or diesel engine (there are no hybrids or plug-ins, yet) and then matching it up with the trim level of your choosing. Most buyers still pick the 2.0-litre diesel engine, which can be ordered in 163hp, 180hp or 240hp outputs; the two more powerful outputs offer all-wheel drive (AWD) if you want the extra traction and security.

    The default powertrain is rear-wheel drive, bestowing the XE with engaging handling. Following the 2019 facelift, the engine range was pared-down - and renamed - to just the D180 (diesel, 180hp). If you don't cover the higher annual mileage needed to justify a diesel, then one of the 2.0-litre petrols instead may suit you better. Initially available in 200hp, 250hp or racy 300hp specs, following the 2019 refresh the lower-powered one was dropped, while the others became known as P250 and P300.

    Only the most powerful petrol engine comes with AWD. There's also the rapid V8-engined XE SV Project 8 that we've detailed below. Once you’ve chosen your engine, it’s on to the trim levels. Originally the choice was from SE, Prestige, Portfolio, R-Sport and Landmark specificationss, each rung of the ladder providing more technology and equipment inside. The most powerful petrol model also comes in a 300 Sport trim. Like the engine naming conventions, these were tweaked in 2019 to become S, SE and HSE, with sportier R-Dynamic versions - marked-out visually with larger grille openings - of each also available.
  • What is the Jaguar XE SV Project 8?
  • The Project 8 is an extremely limited edition hotrod, manufactured by the company’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) skunkworks. Only 300 are being made, so you’ll be lucky to find one unregistered. It’s destined to remain a quirky, extreme footnote in the history of the Jaguar XE range. It's also worth noting that all of them are left-hand drive.
  • What's under the skin?
  • The regular XE saloon carries a rather more conservative design. Its four-door shape is immediately identifiable as a Jaguar, but its low-slung poise means it’s not the roomiest compact executive saloon around. It can feel quite cramped compared with the roomiest rivals, especially in the back seats. A series of 2019 model year revisions has pepped-up the Jaguar XE’s styling inside and out, but it’s in the cabin where you’ll notice the biggest changes.

    The latest 10.0-inch TouchPro media system is now standard across the whole range, certainly improving the quality of infotainment that buyers in this market now expect. You’ll be swiping and scrolling through the logical menus in no time. However, it has to be noted that the XE interior still remains a step below the best cabins of rivals in the quality stakes. Prod a few surfaces, shake a few door pockets: it just doesn’t feel quite as premium as the best Germans.
  • Is it good to drive?
  • This is where the Jag XE fights back. If quality and accommodation aren’t this saloon’s strong suits, wait until you drive it. Jaguar’s ride and handling engineers really know their onions, and the XE steers, stops and goes with a pleasing delicacy that you’ll quickly gel with.

    It’s light on its feet, lacking the stolid Germans’ heft - meaning it’s fun to drive, and remarkably relaxing too. The Jaguar diesel engine is improving, but its refinement still lags behind Audi’s or BMW’s best, but the Ingenium petrol engines are thankfully sweeter and quieter. But rest assured, there are no bad engine choices here. Pick a diesel if low CO2 is your priority for tax reasons; the petrols arguably drive better.
  • How much does the Jaguar XE cost?
  • Prices for the Jaguar XE range kick off at a little under £33,000, putting it on a par with the mostly Germanic competition. Naturally, most owners will be either leasing their XE as a company car or financing it privately; if the latter, there are frequently cheap finance deals, including zero-percent rates, to soften your monthly outgoings.

    The outlook for discounts and savings looks positive, as the small Jaguar enters its twilight years. So be sure to shop around if you are looking to buy an XE. We predict you’ll find some cracking deals, as Jaguar can struggle to shift the volumes it requires to keep the UK factories turning over.
