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

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.
