What You Will Like

The Jaguar XE is the least expensive car in the Jaguar lineup, potentially opening up a whole new segment of buyers for the company. With a base price of under $35,000 the Jaguar XE competes with the BMW 3-Series, the Acura TLX and the Audi A4 all of which are priced in the same general ballpark. The Jaguar has clean, but aggressive styling and the kind of old-world charm that its competition can only dream of.

What's New For 2018

After being added as an all new vehicle to the Jaguar Lineup in 2017 the new Jaguar XE gets a handful of updates for 2018. They include more powerful 247-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder, an improved infotainment system and increases in active safety technology. The optional Surround Camera System now includes Forward Traffic Detection, which alerts drivers when a vehicle is crossing their path.


  • Basic Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The Jaguar XE is a compact sports sedan challenging the BMW 3 Series. It was all new for 2017, and for 2018 brings a new engine into the lineup, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making a strong 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

Jaguar’s chief engineer, Nick Rogers, says the new engine is cleaner and more efficient, using “state-of-the-art exhaust technology and pioneering valve train design.” Called the 30t, it uses twin-scroll turbos with ceramic ball bearings to reduce friction, and a high-flow compressor wheel for performance. Paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, it can zoom from zero to sixty in a brief 5.2 seconds, and is rated at 28 combined miles per gallon.

The hottest engine in the XE line, a supercharged V6 in the S model, gets a boost in horsepower to 380. Other improvements to the 2018 XE include an available Gesture Controlled Trunk Lid, and the latest driver assistance systems, such as the optional Forward Vehicle Guidance and Forward Traffic Detection3.

The XE’s rigid aluminum chassis comes from the superb Jaguar F-Type sports car, while other architecture is taken from the new Jaguar F-Pace crossover. The aluminum body contributes to light weight and agility. Its excellent handling brings a sports-car-like connection with the driver. This Jaguar is quick on its feet, as either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

The new turbo four is called the 30t, and joins the existing engines: the 20d, a 2.0-liter turbodiesel making 180 horsepower with 318 pound-feet of torque; the 25t, a more modest 2.0-liter turbocharged four making 247 horsepower; and the S, a fast supercharged 3.0-liter V6 making 380 horsepower with 332 pound-feet. The other engines use an 8-speed automatic as well.

The styling is clean and conservative, with sporty proportions. The lack of body frills helps aerodynamic efficiency that helps bring a quiet cabin.

The new turbo-four engine is EPA-rated at 25 mpg city, 34 highway, and 28 combined. The diesel, all about torque and fuel mileage, raises it to 30/40/34 mpg. The supercharged V6 brings 20/29/23 mpg to go with its silky speed.

Because the XE competes against luxury sedans, there are many available infotainment and safety features: blind-spot monitors, parking assist, head-up display, adaptive cruise, and forward collision warnings with automatic emergency braking.


The 2018 Jaguar XE comes in no less than 34 models on the Jaguar price sheet. Base, Premium, Prestige, R-Sport, Portfolio and the new S model, with a mix of the engines.

The Jaguar XE 25t ($38,225) comes standard with all-wheel drive and the 2.0-liter turbo four engine. The XE 30t with the more powerful engine starts with Premium trim ($44,625). The rear-wheel-drive S model sports 380 horsepower ($52,275). The XE 30t Portfolio Limited ($60,000) is the most luxurious version.


The sculpting is subdued and subtle. The XE doesn’t turn heads but its looks are seductive. Jaguar designer Ian Callum says he pared it “down to the bare essentials,” and had in mind “less is more.”

The sheetmetal is tight. The proportions are sporty, with a short nose, wide stance, and fenders full of wheel and tire. Jaguar’s new signature grille distinguishes the front end, and the wide horizontal LED taillights emphasize the car’s width and muscular haunches.


The time of Jaguars being known for having cabins of walnut, maple, and rich-smelling leather is past. The cabin of the XE tries to keep up with its elegant ancestors by having infotainment and driver assistance. There is irony there. We’re not sure the ancestors would be impressed.

The cabin is well-constructed and under-styled. The dashboard has one broad line, a simplicity that stands against some rivals’ busy ups and downs. Available gauges offer an electronic interpretation of the classic analog tachometer and speedometer, with a modern info display between them. The grippy leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel holds a number of controls.

The touchscreen at the center of the instrument panel opens infotainment and connectivity. In any car, being precise with the touching can be tricky when the car is in motion, and the XE is no different. The climate controls, located just below the screen, are easy to operate, as are the switches for the heated seats. But the door and window buttons are upside down and anti-intuitive; the window control is high, and door lock low, should be the other way around.

The responsive standard touchscreen is 8.0 inches (measured diagonally), with Bluetooth audio and USB port. The InControl Pro is 10.2 inches, with a 12.3-inch virtual gauge cluster, as well as full-screen navigation, SD card slot, WiFi hotspot, and remote vehicle control features via a mobile app. We suffered interrupted Bluetooth streaming, stiff radio toggles on the steering wheel, thin sound from the Meridian audio system, and no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

The perforated leather is so nice it makes us not miss the rich leather of yesteryear. The navigation system with InControl Pro is slow and a bit labyrinthine, as if the system is in control, not you. The circular gear selector, pioneered by Jaguar, has a chrome top that gets painfully hot in direct sunlight.

The front seats are worthy of a sports sedan, bolstered and padded well while being long-haul comfortable. The base trim is a nice synthetic leather, with heating and cooling optional.

In the rear, entry and exit is unsmooth because of awkwardly shaped door sills, and comical because of small footroom in the door opening that’s narrow on bottom. Headroom is tight and legroom lacking, and the center rear seat is only fit for small children or adults you don’t like, same as rivals.

The trunk is a reasonable 15.9 cubic feet, shaped well for utility.

Driving Impressions

We got some of our seat time at the XE launch in Aspen, Colorado, elevation 8000-10,000 feet, where thin air robs power. But the 20d turbodiesel never hesitated; it was smooth, quiet and well-matched with the 8-speed transmission. We didn’t get to drive an XE with the new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, but it too will likely handle the mountains, because that’s what turbos do.

The XE feels graceful and fluid, with handling that rivals the best among luxury compact sports sedans, including the Cadillac ATS-V and some BMWs. The XE’s electric power steering is perfectly weighted, and the ride is perfectly damped. The chassis feels planted and consistent at speed, with abundant adhesion and hardly a hint of body roll. The standard suspension isn’t harsh, with tires that smooth the edges of the road. The connection between car and river is powerful and gratifying.

If that’s not enough, the XE S model uses adaptive dampers that make this baby dance.

The S model’s supercharged 3.0-liter V6 also gulped the thin air, turning it into blown power from the supercharger. It can sprint from zero to sixty in about 4.5 seconds, quick for the class. It would be even quicker if automatic transmission could keep up, but it’s not as quick as it should be to handle 380 horsepower.

Kickdowns come a bit slowly, on their own in Auto mode. Downshifts as well as upshifts happen more quickly in Manual mode, using the steering-wheel paddles.


If the goal of the XE was to present a British challenger to the Germans and Americans, namely the BMW 3 Series and Cadillac ATS, the mission is accomplished. The XE has enough visceral feel to be worthy of Jaguar legacy. The body and cabin present style without flash. Its rigid aluminum chassis emphatically delivers agility, while improving the ride and acceleration. The quick new 296-horsepower four-cylinder turbo engine gets 28 miles per gallon. If you need a more elegant engine, there’s the S model with its supercharged V6 and 380 horsepower.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
