Jaguar’s first effort at a compact executive car, the X-Type, shared components with a humble Ford Mondeo and looked rather old fashioned.

The Jaguar XE consigns that model to distant memory. There’s still a partial Ford link under the bonnet with the 25t’s four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, but that’s no bad thing because it’s a fine engine with plenty of character and good fuel economy.

Where the XE leads the way is in the driving experience. It’s brilliant steering and handling has put an end to the BMW 3 Series’ decades long reign as the car for executives who love to drive.
