2020 Jaguar XE Overview

The Jaguar XE, first introduced in 2017, is an entry-level luxury performance car. For 2020, the XE gets a refresh that focuses on updating the cabin’s look, feel, and features. The XE competes against small luxury cars like the Tesla Model 3, the Audi A4 and A5, the BMW 3 Series and 4 Series, and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and C-Class.

The XE gets new front and rear bumpers and a fresh grille design. Jaguar offers the XE with the choice of two turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines. The entry-level P250 engine yields 247 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. It comes matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and is available with rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). Every XE now gets the Jaguar SportShift gear selector, which enables manual shift changes. Expect fuel-economy returns of 25 mpg city, 34 highway, and 28 combined with RWD. With AWD, you’ll lose just one mpg in city driving. The P300 engine delivers 296 hp and 295 lb-ft and is available only with AWD. Fuel economy checks in at 22 mpg city, 30 highway, and 25 combined.

The XE’s new cabin, with accommodations for five across two rows, features standard leather upholstery with embossed headrests to complement the updated design and new seats. Other standard features include power-adjustable seating, push-button start, cruise control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a moonroof, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Options include wireless-device charging, an artificial intelligence system that learns drivers’ preferred settings, heated seats, and ventilated seats.

The XE comes standard with a 10-inch touchscreen and 6-speaker audio system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are new for this year, also come standard. Optional features include a dual-screen infotainment system with a 12.3-inch driver display, navigation, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Standard safety features in the Jaguar XE include a reversing camera, lane-keep assist, and front and rear parking sensors. Options include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, driver-drowsiness monitoring, and a head-up display (HUD). The Jaguar XE has not been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

New standard features and updated styling are a welcome addition to the 2020 Jaguar XE and should help it stand out amidst tough competition.
