How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

You feel cocooned in the Jaguar XE because you're sitting low in relation to the window line, but outright space in the front is almost on a par with the BMW 3 Series. That means tall adults should be able to get comfortable and there’s enough space between the driver and a front passenger that they’re not getting in each other’s way.

The two cupholders between the front seats will handle all but the largest takeaway mugs. There’s an open storage area next to the gear selector, which is the ideal size and shape for a phone, and there’s a cubby big enough to stow bulkier items under the front armrest. The door pockets are a bit narrow, but you’ll still fit a 500ml bottle in each.

Two seatback map pockets are standard, as are two cupholders in the central armrest. The door pockets are fairly small, though.

Seat folding and flexibility

The Jaguar XE and most rivals, including the A4, 3 Series and C-Class, offer a 40/20/40, split-folding rear bench. That's more useful than a 60/40 spit and means you can carry passengers and a long load more easily. You fold the rear seats down using handles in the boot compartment.

The front passenger seat comes with 12-way full electric adjustment as standard, which includes lumbar adjustment.
