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.

get the best price

Trim: S

Even this entry-level spec comes with 18in alloy wheels, electrically adjustable leather seats, dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control and a 10.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring. Meanwhile, the list of standard safety kit includes automatic emergency city braking, lane-departure warning and a driver drowsiness monitor. It's enough to make it our pick of the range.

Engine: 2.0

This 247bhp turbocharged petrol engine is plenty punchy enough – even if you do need to rev it quite hard to get the best from it. Worth considering if you're buying privately and don't do too many miles.
