For Marco Island drivers searching for a smaller luxury sedan with athletic performance specs, there’s an all-new option this year—the 2017 Jaguar XE. This model rings in a new generation for the Jaguar compact luxury sedan segment with confident V6 power, an available turbo-diesel inline-four, and plenty of room for passengers and storage in a luxurious cabin. The 2017 BMW 3 Series remains a popular option, too, but the introduction of the new Jaguar model represents a real challenge. See how the 2017 Jaguar XE compares to the 2017 BMW 3 Series, then come test drive the Jaguar XE at Jaguar Fort Myers.

Performance Specs

Whether you purchase the 2017 Jaguar XE or the 2017 BMW 3 Series, you’ll get a compact luxury sport sedan with the option of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. However, the 2017 XE will get you more standard and available power under the hood:

  • Jaguar XE: Both Jaguar XE models come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The standard powertrain is a supercharged 3.0L V6 that puts out a robust 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Those looking to get superior fuel economy can go with a turbo-diesel 2.0L inline-four that dishes out 180 hp and 318 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with the supercharged V6, this car sprints from 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds.
  • BMW 3 Series: The base engine on the BMW 3 Series is a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four that only makes 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. There are two mid-level powertrains as well, but the most powerful in the lineup is the turbocharged 3.0L six-cylinder engine, which falls short of the Jaguar XE at 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. The fastest this model hits 60 mph from a standstill is around 5.4 seconds.

Cargo Space

Both of these vehicles fit into the compact luxury sedan segment, offering standard seating for five in a small enough package to be able to maneuver with ease. However, the 2017 XE gives driver and passengers significantly more room for storage, with a trunk measuring close to a spacious midsize sedan’s at 15.9 cubic feet. The trunk of the 2017 3 Series, on the other hand, measures just 13.0 cubic feet.
