Jaguar XE vs. Jaguar XF: Which Sedan is Right for You?

Jaguar has been drawing attention lately for their impeccably crafted, performance-centric new lineup; sumptuously appointed and with a street presence that is quintessentially "Jaguar," the new models are sophisticated and demand attention on the road. The Jaguar XE and Jaguar XF are two beautiful Jaguar saloon models that have many similar features, but still offer drivers distinct advantages. The Jaguar XF is a performance sedan that puts a premium on quality and craftsmanship, and that is also offered in a new wagon model called the Sportbrake. The Jaguar XE is a more compact sedan with premium amenities, five trim levels, and an appealing entry-level price. Whichever you choose, you'll enjoy the driving cache that only comes with being behind the wheel of a Jaguar.

Jaguar XE

The more compact model of the two, the real-wheel drive Jaguar XE sports sedan is described by Jaguar as balancing  "sports car performance with efficiency." Weighing in at over 300 pounds less than the Jaguar XF, the XE's reduced weight and shorter wheelbase means it will offer a sportier driving experience with faster acceleration, braking, and turning speeds. The new model has a more powerful standard engine, a 247-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, which will easily take you from 0-60 mph in a mere 6.5 seconds. There are five trim levels, several other available powertrain options, and available all-wheel drive, so you can customize your new Jaguar XE to suit your personality and driving style. And with an appealing entry-level sticker price, more drivers than ever before will have access to this impeccably crafted vehicle.

Jaguar XF

The Jaguar XF is equally sophisticated and stunning on the road but offers drivers a different driving experience. The larger of the two models, you'll find more interior space as well as cargo space in the trunk of this model, offering more comfort and versatility for longer drives. The Jaguar XF offers drivers even more ways to customize their ride as it offers the new XF Sportbrake, an exclusive new design that merges the best of a performance sedan with the versatility of a wagon. This midsize performance sedan's available 380-horsepower supercharged V6 delivers what Kelley Blue Book describes as "rocket-like acceleration and an abundance of torque for passing and merging." Steering is sharp and controlled, while the adaptive suspension creates a smooth ride in any driving condition.

Sophisticated Features and Amenities

Both the Jaguar XF and Jaguar XE come beautifully appointed with exceptional craftsmanship and details throughout. The XF comes equipped with standard high-end features such as dual-zone climate control, a 380-watt 12-speaker Meridian sound system, and start-stop technology. The Jaguar InControl infotainment system is accessible through an 8-inch touchscreen, but can be upgraded to the InControl Touch Pro with a larger screen and more features. Advanced technology-enabled safety features are also available as well as a rearview camera, heated and cooled front seats, navigation, even a luxury package with suede headliner can be had as you move up the trim ladder.

The Jaguar XE model also comes beautifully equipped while still maintaining its status as the most affordable model in the new Jaguar lineup. Standard features include Luxtec faux leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, a moonroof, and Jaguar's InControl 8-inch touch-screen display. Higher trims will offer options like navigation, heated leather seats, and advanced safety systems including blind-spot monitoring and both front and rear parking aids. The upgraded InControl Touch Pro system is also available along with a power operated trunk, power rear sunshade, in-car Wi-Fi 4G hotspot, and much more.
