The Jaguar XE is a 4-door compact executive car that started its production in 2015. Jaguar’s smallest saloon is packed with fuel-efficient engines as well as comfort and refinement. With its sharp appearance and even sharper handling, the XE has won three consecutive New Car Awards (2015-17) and has been crowned Best Compact Executive Car in three consecutive years.
Jaguar Land Rover’s new turbocharged Ingenium turbocharged four-cylinder engine appeared first in the Jaguar XE. An all-new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 247 horsepower as standard. The engine is quite powerful, which helps to speed up the Jaguar XE from 0 to 60mph in just 5.4 seconds. The top speed of XE is around 120mph, which isn’t too bad as it is a saloon, not a sports car.
In terms of reliability scores, the XE performed well in its starting years. However, electrical faults and build problems have plagued the early reliability of this product. PDF regeneration issues and running issues plague the Ingenium engine as well. According to our 2019 Driver Power survey, the Jaguar XE ranked 71 out of 100 cars, with a relatively poor reliability rating, and failed to cut our 2020 survey.
Despite being a failure in overall reliability score and sales, the XE, however, offers good safety protection to its owners. The Jaguar XE score the full five-star rating by Euro NCAP, with an impressive 92% adult occupant protection and 81% for pedestrian protection. Automatic emergency braking is also a plus point to add to its safety features.
Jaguars consistently rank among the best-handling cars in their sector and this year’s Jaguar is an excellent car that’s hard to beat. Jaguar XE will have a resale value of $17,735 after 5 years of depreciation and a 61% depreciation after 5 years.
