2017 Luxury Models You Need to See Now
15. 2017 Jaguar XE
Why we like it: The all-new Jaguar XE marks the British marque’s big return to the compact luxury segment.
Built and designed to compete with the BMW 3 Series, it offers three engine choices - diesel, 2.0-liter turbo-four, or a 340-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 - and a decent amount of advanced technology. The sophisticated suspension ensures the car remains agile with sharp handling and fine-tuned steering around turns.
As sporty as it is, it’s still a comfortable and controlled ride and comes with a best-in-class warranty.
Where it falls short: The backseat feels a bit cramped and the interior materials could use an upgrade if Jaguar wants to keep up with the competition.
MPG: 21 city/30 highway
