Five things to know about the gorgeous and sporty Jaguar XEThe Jag XE is a compelling alternative to the German sport sedan, but before you try to take this cat here are 5 things you should know.
We are loving the 2017 Jaguar XE right now. It's handsomely designed and a fantastic performer. But before you go putting your friend's German sports sedan on notice, here are five things you should know. One of four engines lives under the Jags hood. Either a gasoline or diesel turbo charged four cylinder or one of two stages of a super charged three liter V-6 peaking at 380 horse power I'm digging that V6. You can choose between rear or all wheel drive, but the only gear box available is an eight speed automatic with sport and normal programs. Sadly it's saddled with a hollow cheap feeling paddle shifter, that's not very luxurious. [BLANK_AUDIO] Front and center is the Incontrol Touch Pro Tech with its massive ten inch touch screen. However, this web connected navigation is missing features we like to see in this class and sort of plagued with bugs. [MUSIC] A modern selection of driver aid features available, including lane keeping assist, semi automatic parking assist, and adaptive cruise that works in stop and go traffic. The XE starts at $35,725 bucks but loaded up with options and packages it easily crosses the $60,000 mark. So there are five things you should know about the 2017 Jaguar XE but there is so much more to love and to nitpick so be sure to check out our full written and video reviews over on the roadshow.com.
