Review

The Jaguar XE is wonderful to drive and well equipped, even if rivals have it licked for interior quality and practicality. Go for the D180 diesel if you're a company car driver or worried about fuel costs, while the P250 petrol is a better choice is you're buying privately and do below average miles. Either way, stick with entry-level S trim if you want the best value for money.

This version of the XE is based on range-topping HSE-spec, but brings sportier looks and lowered and stiffened suspension. However, while the former makes it very desirable and the latter improves the already impressive handling, there's a penalty to pay in terms of ride comfort.

We've yet to drive this range-topping petrol engine in the latest Jaguar XE.
