Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Jaguar XE saloon?

The Audi A4 is impressively refined, has plenty of pulling power, whichever engine option you find, has a supremely classy interior and excellent fuel economy. It’s a superb motorway cruiser and offers the quality of far pricier cars, and there’s also a host of on-board tech to enjoy.

The BMW 3 Series has been the class-leader for so many years they’ve even named the group category after it. It’s not surprising. It’s great to drive, in almost any version, with a range of strong and economical engines and it also has a wonderful infotainment system. Balanced against that, the lower powered diesels can be a little gruff, just like the XEs, and the interior, while well screwed together, doesn’t look or feel especially classy.

Overview

There are more spacious and better-finished executive saloons, but a used XE is still a compelling choice

  • Agile handling
  • Well equipped
  • Efficient engines
  • Limited rear space
  • Some interior materials feel low rent
  • Can be expensive to run
