The latest Jaguar XE did not feature in our 2023 Driver Power survey, but the British manufacturer itself achieved an encouraging 10th-place finish out of 32 manufacturers, beating Mercedes, BMW and Audi. Owners reported that their cars were amazing to drive but heavy on fuel, while overall reliability was not as good as some rivals.

On the safety front there’s no need to worry, with the car achieving an excellent five-star result in its Euro NCAP crash test in 2015. Its 92% score for adult occupant protection was particularly impressive. Standard safety kit includes six airbags, traction control, stability control, Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Keep Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition and Pedestrian Contact Sensing.

Warranty

The Jaguar XE comes with a three-year, unlimited mileage warranty, meaning business buyers looking to do big mileages can have peace of mind. It’s fairly standard aside from the mileage de-restriction, covering any mechanical or electrical parts that fail outside of what could be considered normal wear and tear.

Servicing

Jaguar offers fixed price service plans with flexible payment options. Plans are also transferable between cars, so your plan can be carried across to any subsequent Jaguar model. All parts used in Jaguar’s servicing are covered by a 24-month warranty.
