2020 Jaguar USA XE

Edmunds is raving about the vehicle’s “updated exterior styling and lighting,” “improved interior materials,” and upgrades like the standard 10-inch InControl® Touch Pro™ infotainment display with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Additional strengths that this compact sports sedan offers include:

  • “Sharp handling and steering performance.”
  • A “Surprising comfortable ride quality.”
  • With 14.5 cubic feet of cargo space or 12.1 cubic feet with the spare tire, “Trunk capacity is larger than average.”

Car and Driver

The experts at Car and Driver are excited about the interior, which features lots of “soft-touch materials while integrating added functionality.” Standard features include grained leather seats, and a soft grain leather steering wheel, as well as the available wood veneer trim finishers. It’s not difficult to see why Car and Driver can’t stop raving about the new XE. They also mention the performance and driving experience:

  • “It steers with laser precision, and the body stays wonderfully flat in corners.”
  • The 247 hp and 296 hp engine, as well as the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, are “nicely matched to this Jaguar [model]’s size and weight.”


MotorTrend has excellent things to say about the redesigned Jaguar XE, which offers “nicer materials in a car that retains its feline agility.” The vehicle also “continues to display the catlike agility that comes from a lightweight aluminum body and 50/50 weight distribution.” Below is a look at the auto industry’s favorite interior features:

  • The available InControl® Touch Pro™ Duo infotainment system and two touchscreen displays
  • Slimmer LED headlights, a wider but slimmer grille at the end of the long hood, and new bumpers
