The Jaguar XE Is Named Best Compact Executive In Auto Express Used Car Awards
Despite it being a highly competitive category, Jaguar’s popular luxury saloon car, the XE, has driven away with the ‘Best Compact Executive’ award at this year’s Auto Express Used Car Awards.
Auto Express declared that ‘the Jag offers a mix of precision and ride comfort that few rivals can match, so with prices lower than a new supermini for a well equipped Prestige model, what’s not to like?’
Having been an incredibly popular choice as a large family car for the past five years, the Jaguar XE provides drivers with state-of-the-art technology, great performance and stylish comfort. No wonder it’s a winner, even when considering an older model.
We’ve come up with some ideas as to why the Jaguar XE has been crowned a used car winner - here they are:
Throughout, the design has been completely refined – it’s timeless.
The Jaguar XE has a style and presence which differentiates it from any other car in its class. Combining comfort and luxury, the XE’s design has been optimised from the inside-out.
Commanding the road, the XE boasts a sporty signature Jaguar radiator grille at the core of a sleek and smooth silhouette.
Inspired by F-TYPE, the slim taillights complement the vehicle’s sporty saloon style.
Offering an even more distinctive look, in more recent models premium LED headlights with signature DRL improve visibility when driving at night. Comparable to daylight, these assist with reducing driving fatigue too.
The driver can adjust the drive to suit them.
Each journey is about the driver being fully in control – at any point, you can easily select one of the different drive modes using the Jaguar SportShift Selector.
Renowned for providing dynamic handling, the Jaguar XE’s performance has been enhanced year on year. With upgrades to the suspension and revised JaguarDrive Control in recent models, owners should be prepared for a thrilling ride.
Ensuring both a confident and engaging drive, the XE’s Dynamic Stability Control intervenes when required to reduce engine torque and apply braking, counteracting understeer and oversteer.
The Jaguar XE takes care when braking too, seamlessly balancing the distribution of torque between wheels. The system provides greater confidence by supporting the vehicle's agility and stability when cornering.
The XE is a sports saloon that comes packed with technology.
With a sleek design, the XE’s 10-inch infotainment system delivers all the information and entertainment a driver could possible need.
In more recent models, the state-of-the-art Touch Pro duo offers customisable homescreens, fast response times and voice control.
An intuitive navigation system optimises drive time, providing a live ETA and assessing the best route to take.
The Jaguar XE also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Connectivity, whilst the XE’s host of connectivity features mean it’s easy for the driver to keep in touch with anything or anyone they need.
It’s incredibly safe too.
The Jaguar XE received the maximum Star rating in the Euro NCAP’s tests, offering outstanding crash protection and scoring very highly in all categories.
The Euro NCAP is an independent organisation to judge a car’s safety, producing yearly reports on all the latest models.
Having reviewed the Jaguar XE, Euro NCAP declared the large family saloon to have a 5-star safety rating with just its standard features intact.
As well as the usual safety mod-cons of a new car, including ISOFIX fittings for really little ones, the Jaguar XE comes with a range of Assistance Systems as standard. That means it will automatically keep a look out for and avoid if possible, potential dangers on the road.
