New Jaguar XE: The World's Media Give Their Verdict

The verdict is in after the second generation Jaguar XE is tested in France by global media.

Since the launch of the efficient and refined New Jaguar XE early this year (2019), the world has been eager to experience Jaguar’s most advanced sports saloon for themselves. With its wider, lower and more muscular stance, the XE demonstrates a new striking design both internally and externally.

Packed with a whole host of comfort and entertainment enhancing features, the New Jaguar XE is certain to provide an enjoyable ride. Partnered with its highly responsive 8-speed automatic transmission and Jaguar SportShift selector, as well as a choice of high performance 2.0 litre Ingenium petrol and diesel engines in rear or all-wheel drive – the New Jaguar XE offers an enhanced driving experience.

Discover the verdict from various media outlets below:

“Excellent new cabin and effectively redesigned exterior, the XE really is now good enough to compete head on with the very best from its German competitors in this class. Especially now that the Jag saloon costs less but offers so much more than before.”

 “Comfy and quiet yet brilliant to drive. The handling-nerd’s car in this class.”

“By retaining what made the XE so good before while addressing much of what was less desirable, Jaguar has certainly created a more complete, more appealing and simply more likeable junior executive car. Given the high perch that it already occupied, that's a fine achievement.”

“Providing a good sense of control around bends without being too sharp, it's the perfect set-up for a small Jaguar. Handling poise has always been the XE's strong suit and the 2020 model year does nothing to dilute that keen athleticism.”
