The Jaguar XE proves to customers that being the least expensive Sedan the brand offers does not mean quality needs to be compromised.
Jaguar as a brand has never been well known for offering low-priced vehicles. They provide some of the highest quality products in the market and their prices have always been consistent with their product. However, the low price of the new Jaguar XE is almost making the brand seem charitable. This car was made for drivers who want the luxury and style of the Jaguar experience, but are looking to pay a reasonable price. The Jaguar XE is anything but average. It ranks at the top of the list in the sport sedan category, offering the thrill of a sports car with the practicality of a sedan.
Choose Between XE Diesel or XE S
For the time being, the Jaguar XE will be available in two options, (with another arriving shortly after): the 180-hp diesel or the driver’s choice, supercharged, 340-hp V-6 XE S. Either route you choose, you will be thoroughly satisfied, however, it is more likely that the XE S will be the crowd favorite.
The XE S manages to keep its body to a light-weight 3,787 pounds by strategically placing steel parts for optimal weight distribution. The Eaton supercharged engine pushes 11.6 psi of air into the cylinders to squeeze 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque from only 3.0 liters of displacement. As a result, this machine provides instant thrust that progressively and seamlessly builds, without ever reducing the vehicle’s aptitude for aggressive acceleration while cruising. The XE S is not opposed to having the petal to the metal taking the car from zero-to-sixty in just 4.5 seconds.
In addition to the vehicle’s playful side, it offers great stability as a daily commuter on public roads. The Jaguar XE has the advantage of driving with the smooth sense of a Cadillac, but offers a much more stylish appearance. The XE has established the perfect medium between the soft body roll of the Cadillac and the stiffness of the average sports car. It is a delightfully controlled ride with quick responses and an impressive fuel efficiency at a combined 26 mpg.
The Jaguar XE may not be priced like every other Jaguar, but it’s clearly from the same family. To learn more about the XE and other Jaguar models, visit Jaguar Santa Barbara and speak with one of our brand-trained sales representative.
