What the Critics Say

“Despite tough competition, the XE has one major aspect in its favor, albeit a subjective one. People will come up to you in the parking lot and ask what it is. The XE finds admirers wherever it goes. Take away the badges, and it still looks like a Jaguar. There’s something sinewy and agile about it, even when it’s not moving. Those short front overhangs not only help the stance and steering feel, they also convey the enthusiast side of the XE’s rich character.” – Autotrader

“Modern, sophisticated and well-assembled, the interior of the new 2018 Jaguar XE mimics the design also used in the brand’s F-Pace SUV and XF sedan. Front passengers are treated to comfortable seats, and Jaguar uses a good mix of a touch-based screen and traditional buttons for audio and climate controls. It’s a very clean design, simple and intuitive to use.” – Kelley Blue Book

What’s New for 2018

Several revisions and updates have been added to the Jaguar XE lineup for 2018. An all-new inline-four engine is now offered in base XE models while a new range-topping XE S variant makes its debut sporting 380 horsepower. A newly available hands-free power trunk lid opens in response to an under-bumper swipe of your foot. Additional active safety technologies and convenience features are now offered on certain XE models.
