Jaguar XE Quick Review

By Anna Kantilaftas, 10 Feb 2016 Car Reviews

The stylish and well-equipped Jaguar XE has arrived to a warm reception, finalising for the WhichCar Style Awards 2016.

Jaguar XE Quick Review

The Jaguar XE may not have the ‘Old Hollywood’ vibe like Jags of yore, yet it has entered the mid-size premium sedan market with a bang featuring as a finalist in Wheels Car Of The Year and the WhichCar Style Awards for 2016.


  • The XE is packed with standard gear. Even the base model 20t Prestige comes packed with equipment such as emergency braking, park assist and 360 degree camera.
  • It looks elegant. The XE is an attractive, strong looking sedan. The front grille and cat eye headlights give it a real sense of toughness.
  • It measures in at a decent price for a prestige brand, so people can now own the big cat nameplate affordably.
  • It drives well. It’s sportier than its competitors and drives like a prestige sedan should.


  • There are a bunch of excellent options to choose from to take the Jaguar XE up a notch. But they will cost you.
  • It’s also missing the classic Jag-like qualities people look for in the brand, like the woodgrain trim on the interiors.
  • It’s not as fuel efficient as its competitors.
  • The XE only features six airbags which is also less than other mid-six sedans.
