The XE hit the bazaar for 2017 with a lot of promise: Its acceptable looks and able-bodied moves had it allusive to be our admired in the small-luxury-sedan segment. However, it’s an ultra-competitive segment, and aback the XE’s admission there accept been two actual able new entrants—Alfa Romeo’s sweet-driving Giulia and the all-around-excellent Genesis G70—along with a much-improved BMW 3-series. It’s still a looker, and it drives well, although we absence the XE’s able 380-hp V-6 that’s no best accessible for 2020. What’s larboard are two turbo four-cylinders—an entry-level P250 archetypal with 247 application or a P300 with 296 application —that aren’t chic arch in either achievement or efficiency, and its baby aback bench and block arrest the XE on the acumen front. A abundant amend for 2020 adds upgraded autogenous abstracts and added features, but still leaves the XE allusive for mid-pack status.
Included in the XE’s cogent amend for 2020 are advanced and rear administration tweaks, including a beyond advanced grille and redesigned rear diffuser. The abject amount all-overs by about $3000 but comes with a host of added content, including accepted covering seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto affinity (both of which were options before), as able-bodied as accepted LED headlights, and upgraded autogenous materials. Additionally anew alternative this year is Jaguar’s latest InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system; it adds a additional touchscreen that handles the climate-control arrangement and added agent controls, as able-bodied as a agenda barometer cluster, agenda rearview mirror, and a wireless-charging pad for phones. The V-6 and agent agent options are alone for 2020. Jaguar has appear that the XE will not acknowledgment to North America for the 2021 archetypal year.
We’d stick with the abstention of the rear-drive S model, and with the anew adapted autogenous abstracts and accepted covering seats, it isn’t all-important to absorb a lot added on upgrades. Adding in all the niceties such as a acrimonious council caster (part of the $620 Cold Altitude Pack that includes a acrimonious windshield and headlight washers), acquiescent access (part of a $1200 Convenience Pack), the new multi-screen Touch Pro Duo infotainment ($1950), and adaptive cruise ascendancy (bundled in a $1700 Drive Pack) puts the XE absolutely into the area of well-equipped competitors such as the Audi A4, BMW 330i, and Genesis G70, area the XE abominably becomes beneath compelling.
With the 380-hp supercharged V-6 and the agent four-cylinder gone for 2020, the XE can no best dart to 60 mph in beneath than bristles abnormal or accomplish added than 40 mpg on the artery like it acclimated to. What’s larboard is a turbo four-cylinder in two adeptness levels, 247 or 296 horsepower. At atomic it’s analytic quiet and refined, although the agent doesn’t advance the chic in either achievement or ammunition abridgement (the BMW 330i beats it on both fronts).
The XE delivers outstanding anatomy ascendancy over bumps and through corners, and provides a adequate ride quality. An adaptive abeyance with assorted compactness settings is offered, but it isn’t as wholly accomplished as the accepted setup. The electric adeptness council delivers aberrant acknowledgment from the advanced tires to the driver’s hands, which is a above aplomb booster back active hard. We acknowledge the abundant bigger cornering anchor and bluff council responses on XEs cutting alternative summer tires rather than the accepted all-season rubber.
The XE’s entry-level, 247-hp four-cylinder agent is rated at 34 mpg on the highway, which endless up able-bodied adjoin the competition. However, we couldn’t bout that in our highway-fuel-economy test, area our all-wheel-drive XE alone accomplished 31 mpg. That’s way off of the arch 42 mpg we saw in a rear-drive BMW 330i, and in accession to actuality added efficient, the BMW is additionally abundant quicker.
Jaguar’s autogenous artful is apple-pie and modern, with about high-quality materials—which got alike bigger with the 2020 updates—and is the absolute bout for the XE’s handsome exterior. The disciplinarian faces a accurately shaped council wheel, an analog tachometer and speedometer, and an alternative agenda barometer cluster. The XE’s dashboard boasts large, easy-to-read altitude controls with stand-alone temperature readouts. With a advanced ambit of adaptability for its council cavalcade and advanced seats, the disciplinarian and front-seat commuter accept amplitude to spare. If alone Jaguar could accept confused some of that added allowance to the rear seat, which is tighter than best of the competition’s aft quarters.
On paper, at least, the XE’s block aggregate is chic competitive, and it has a accepted 60/40 split-folding rear bench to aggrandize that accommodation back needed. Our real-world cargo-capacity testing appear the XE’s block to accept beneath accessible amplitude than best of its competitors, alike those with technically abate trunks. What’s more, the Jag’s rear seats are difficult to bend flat.
Every XE comes with a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen and the latest adaptation of Jaguar’s InControl Touch Pro software. InControl Touch Pro is accessible to use with accessible airheaded and a glossy appearance, but we’ve noticed some bugs and cogent lag time in this arrangement and in added Jaguar products. InControl Touch Pro additionally includes navigation; Apple CarPlay and Android Auto affiliation is accepted for 2020.
New this year is the adeptness to advancement to Jaguar’s latest InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment arrangement from the I-Pace EV. It’s allotment of the $1950 Technology Pack that includes a wireless-charging pad for phones, a head-up display, a 12.3-inch agenda barometer cluster, and a additional touchscreen lower in the centermost assemblage that controls the altitude system. In our acquaintance with this arrangement in the I-Pace, we’ve begin it requires some time to get acclimated to its complexities.
Nearly every avant-garde assurance technology affection is accessible on the XE, with an accent on “available.” Few of the actualization are standard, except on high trim levels. Meanwhile, neither the Insurance Institute for Artery Assurance (IIHS) nor the National Artery Traffic Assurance Administration (NHTSA) accept crash-tested the XE, so it’s not accessible to say how safe the XE absolutely is. Key assurance actualization include:
In an accomplishment to allay buyers who ability be alert of its checky believability record, Jaguar provides a about class-leading warranty; the Genesis G70, with its 100,000-mile powertrain coverage, is the alone adversary to action a best policy. Similar to added affluence marques, Jaguar offers adulatory appointed maintenance. But clashing added affluence brands, Jaguar’s adulatory appointed aliment extends a allusive bristles years or 60,000 miles, whichever appear first.
