Jaguar XE review - MPG, CO2 and running costs

Overall the XE is a very cost-effective executive saloon to buy and run

All Jaguar XE models are powered by 2.0-litre engines that have been developed with one eye on economy and efficiency. Naturally, the most efficient engine in the range is the D200 diesel, and Jaguar claims an impressive best of 57.7mpg for combined economy, with CO2 emissions of 128g/km. That’s a lot better than the previously available D180, whose figures sit at 46-50.7mpg for the rear-drive version and 41.6-46.4mpg for the four-wheel drive model. CO2 emissions were 146g/km and 161g/km, respectively.

The powerful P300 is the thirstiest XE with a combined fuel economy figure of 32.4mpg. CO2 emissions are quoted at 197g/km, but will vary depending on wheel size.

The XE compares favourably with most of its closest rivals, but the ever-dominant BMW 3 Series still offers a better balance between running costs and performance. 

Insurance groups

The Jaguar XE starts at insurance group 27 in D180 guise and climbs to group 34 for the top-spec P300. For comparison, the BMW 3 Series sits in groups 26 to 42, depending on which specification you choose.

Every XE comes with remote central locking, an alarm and an engine immobiliser, as you’d expect, but the cost of parts and labour for accident repairs means insurance costs are suitably premium.

Depreciation

Our experts predict that the latest Jaguar XE will hold on to around 40 to 43% of its value after three years and 36,000 miles. The industry-standard BMW 3 Series beats the XE here – the saloon is expected to retain between 43 and 50%.
