  • Jaguar XE: The base engine on the Jaguar XE is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that makes 240 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque. You can also step up to a turbo-diesel 2.0L four-cylinder to get better fuel economy along with 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque. The most powerful engine in the lineup is a supercharged 3.0L V6 that produces a robust 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.

Vehicle Design

Both of these vehicles come with standard seating for up to five passengers, but their accommodations are quite distinct. The 2017 Jaguar XE is a smaller compact luxury sedan, while the 2017 Jaguar XF is a larger midsize luxury sedan. The passenger volume of the Jaguar XE is noticeably larger than your average compact sedan, but the rear seat area is best suited for two adults or three children. The Jaguar XF, on the other hand, provides spacious amenities from front to back and can capably seat up to three adult passengers in back. In terms of storage space, the Jaguar XE comes with a trunk the measured 15.9 cubic feet, while the trunk of the Jaguar XF fits up to 19.1 cubic feet of cargo.


Another notable difference between these models is the asking price, an important thing to consider when weighing your options:

  • Jaguar XE: MSRP from $34,900
  • Jaguar XF: MSRP from $47,450

Which Luxury Sedan is Best Suited for Me?

There are a lot of things to consider when choosing between the Jaguar XE and Jaguar XF, including the amount of power you want, the amount of interior space you need, and how much you’re willing to spend on a luxury vehicle. The Jaguar XE offers many of the high-end amenities and performance capabilities of the Jaguar XF but in a smaller package. On the other hand, the Jaguar XF delivers more standard and max power than the Jaguar XE, and it has noticeably more room for passengers to stretch out and for storage in the trunk. If you have a bigger budget or are willing to finance more, the Jaguar XF might be the right model for you, but if you want to get an entry-level luxury car that’s fully decked out for less, the Jaguar XE will prove an excellent choice as well.
