First review of the new Jaguar XE 2.0 Diesel 163 hp 2016

After the unsuccessful first attempt X-Type on Ford Mondeo-based Jaguar ventures a restart in the middle class with the XE completely developed in-house. 

The notchback sedan squints after the German premium competitors - and specifically to the 3 Series BMW. As well as this, the Briton is on a agilitätsfördernden rear-wheel drive, which earned him a sporty driving behavior. Despite the tight suspension tuning while the suspension comfort is not neglected. 

The 163 hp from its diesel engine fuel-saving variant E-Performance provides good performance, unfortunately the rather rough engine running something tarnishes the driving experience.

Although the determined test consumption of 4.7 l / 100 km is quite clearly on the manufacturer's specification of 3.8 l / 100 km, the XE E-Performance is thus one of the most fuel-efficient models in the midsize class. The space in the front row is fine, in the rear, it goes contrary to little more cramped. 

Even the sometimes simple material quality in the interior can not convince completely and is the discerning of Britons do not fully respond.

  • lower depreciation

  • low operating costs


  • AdBlue tank filler neck in the trunk

  • sometimes simple interior materials

  • pronounced starting weakness

  • Pedals are too close together
