2019 Jaguar XE Ratings & Reliability
The XE is an athletic compact luxury sports sedan that's fun to drive, thanks to its quick, communicative steering and tight body control. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, 247-hp turbo engine is responsive but a bit raspy sounding, and gets 25 mpg when coupled with AWD; it's also available in rear-wheel drive. A diesel engine is available, but it's the 380-hp supercharged V6 that provides real punch. The eight-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. The ride is steady yet comfortable. Interior quality, however, is not befitting the class or price, with some cheap touches and sharp edges. The rear seat is extremely tight, and the infotainment system is rather distracting. A host of advanced active safety and driver-assistance features are available.

Jaguar XE 2018
The XE is an athletic compact luxury sports sedan. Base models get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo. A more potent 340-hp, 3.0-liter supercharged V6 is the uplevel offering, and a diesel engine is also available. All engine are coupled to a smooth eight-speed automatic. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Our brief experience indicates that the XE is agile and fun to drive, with a comfortable ride. But the interior ambience is not as opulent as one might expect from a Jaguar. The rear seat is extremely tight and the infotainment system is not up to snuff. A host of advanced active safety and driver assistance features are available.
