Today's Deal - Jaguar XE

Jaguar XE Sedans for sale near you

What Edmunds Says

Jaguar wants a piece of the lucrative market for premium entry-level sport sedans. A powerful, lightweight model like the 2016 Jaguar XE should shake up the class and offer an alternative to traditional German choices.

Pros

Lightweight, dedicated platform; all-new fuel-efficient turbocharged engine; unique Jag style.

Cons

Aluminum-intensive platform could push the starting price beyond competitors; not very easy to make a four-cylinder sound like a true Jaguar.

What's New for 2016

The 2016 Jaguar XE is an all-new model.

Introduction

Under new ownership, Jaguar has made a compelling comeback across the luxury spectrum. The automaker has reinforced its traditional positions, rolled out new classics like the XK and XF, and shown ambition in attacking new segments.

With the 2016 Jaguar XE, the brand turns its attention to the bread-and-butter class of entry-level luxury sedans led by the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Jaguar tried this once before with the X-Type, a decent car that was otherwise dismissed by Jaguar faithful and shoppers alike as a tarted-up Ford midsize sedan (it shared its platform with Ford's Mondeo, a European midsize sedan).

This time, however, the British automaker has momentum and manufacturing on its side. The XE will use a new lightweight platform comprising 75 percent aluminum, configured for both rear- and all-wheel drive. A new front wishbone suspension design, adaptive dampers and driver-adjustable handling modes should give the XE the road finesse it needs to succeed in this class. Sharp exterior style emphasizes a coupelike profile with a rear end inspired by the contemporary F-Type Coupe.

The "baby Jag," as it's apt to become known, will also be the first model to benefit from Jaguar's new in-house engine family. The XE will likely launch in the U.S. with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder making at least as much power as the 240-horsepower version in the current XF. The high-performance XE S will follow, with a 340-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V6 propelling the Jag from zero to 60 in 4.9 seconds. An eight-speed automatic transmission will likely be the only choice for American buyers.

The XE will also feature a slick, new low-speed stability control. Borrowed from Land Rover, the All Surface Progress Control system can guide the XE on slippery surfaces at speeds between 2 and 19 mph without the driver needing to touch the pedals.

The new XE's entertainment system will revolve around an 8-inch touchscreen display with the ability to access smartphone apps through the touchscreen. Navigation, Bluetooth audio streaming, USB connectivity and a WiFi hotspot feature will also be available. Optional safety systems will include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, semi-automated parking assist and rear cross-traffic alert.

The XE will step into a well-established and ruthless segment. The BMW 3 Series sets the benchmark for dynamic performance and build quality, while the Audi A4 offers technological sophistication and inimitable style. Mercedes-Benz redesigns the C-Class for 2015, which should also include a coupe. And although the Japanese brands lack the cachet of the European badges, the Infiniti Q50 (formerly the G37) and 2014 Lexus IS 250 are fine sport sedans with premium materials and appointments.

The Jaguar XE sedan will arrive at dealers sometime in 2016. Check back for more information on the Jaguar XE, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
