Launch special: new Jaguar XE

The new Jaguar XE is a crucial car for the famous British brand: we mark its arrival with a bumper package of XE-related content

Jaguar is back in the compact executive car segment that it vacated in 2009 with the demise of the X-Type. The new baby Jaguar XE is all set to take the fight to the likes of BMW’s 3 Series, Audi’s A4 and the Mercedes C-Class in this lucrative market sector.

You can find out everything you need to know about the Jaguar XE right here on Auto Express and also discover full details on the star-studded launch event at Earls Court in London. 

Jaguar XE: price, specs and on sale date

We’ve also got the latest on the forthcoming Jaguar XE SVR, the performance saloon version of the new XE that is destined to challenging the likes of BMW’s M3 and the Audi RS6.

To find out what the XE is up against, take a look at our page on the best executive cars currently on sale and you can get the views of our editor-in-chief Steve Fowler on JLR’s strategy of launching the XE and the Land Rover Discovery Sport at the same time.   

If the new XE is a little beyond your price range at over £27,000, you might want to consider Jaguar’s last compact executive offering – the X-Type – and we’ve got a full X-Type used car buyer’s guide.  There’s also a chance to revel in the beauty of Jaguar’s most iconic car ever – the E-Type.
