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
