For years, Jaguar focused on sporty coupes and sedans, and in recent years it has begun to widen its range to SUVs, too. Because of this expanded net, the 2019 Jaguar XE is almost in danger of slipping through the cracks. It's not a popular sedan, and yet it delivers on many of the promises that British vehicles have supplied for years.
The engine lineup helps this year's XE stand out from the competition. While other manufacturers try to reduce configuration choices, Jaguar continues to offer the four-cylinder gas engine, a four-cylinder diesel, a powerful V6, and an insane V8 engine. Regardless of your choice, the engine combined with the sporty suspension results in a Jaguar that you'll love to drive anywhere.
Some drivers will dislike parts of the XE, like the decrease in rear legroom. The seats themselves are smaller than competing cars, and the cabin materials aren't quite as impressive as luxury brands command. Smartphone integration also requires a bit of heavy lifting; you need to download more than one app to get full functionality.
Regardless, this year's XE has unique styling and fun driving dynamics. As long as you have no need to drive other people around, it could be the perfect sports sedan for you.
What's New for 2019?
The 2019 Jaguar XE is part of the first generation, introduced two years ago. This year, there are more standard features, and the navigation system gets voice command access. Also, Jaguar adds three new trims: the 300 Sport, the Landmark, and the SV Project 8.
A luxury sports sedan, the 2019 Jaguar XE offers a wide range of configuration options that most buyers will love.
For the best balance between price and features, the Prestige trim powered by a 30t engine should do the trick. This trim gives you 296 horses that translate to powerful acceleration along with all the luxuries you'd expect from the segment.
There are nine trim choices available for the 2019 Jaguar XE:
- 300 Sport
- SV Project 8
Across the board, you get five engine choices, and they're all married to an eight-speed automatic. You do get a choice between all- or rear-wheel drive, though.
At the base, you get a 2.0L four-cylinder gasoline or a diesel engine. Standard features include dual-zone auto climate control, a six-speaker sound system, and 17-inch wheels along with simulated leather upholstery.
Premium trims get the base four-cylinder gas engine or a more powerful version. The features build on the base XE by adding a better sound system along with driver-seat memory functions and 40/20/40-split rear seats.
The Prestige trim comes with either 18- or 19-inch wheels depending on whether you get the gas or diesel engine. Also, you get ambient interior lighting, keyless entry, leather upholstery, and control of smartphone apps via the touchscreen display.
With the R-Sport, you get either 19- or 20-inch wheels along with improved leather upholstery, adaptive xenon headlights, and satellite radio. This is also the trim where you get more driver safety aids, like auto emergency braking, lane departure intervention, and parking sensors in the front and rear.
At the S trim, you get most of the features from the R-Sport, but you only have the supercharged V6 engine available with all-wheel drive. Together, the powertrain delivers 380 horses and 332 pound-feet of torque. You'll also get enhanced leather upholstery.
Moving further up to the 300 Sport and Landmark models get you similar features to the R-Sport. In both cases, you get unique interior and exterior trims.
The Portfolio is a limited-time trim that builds on the S level. However, it only comes with a white body and a tan cabin.
Finally, you can get the SV Project 8, which is also a limited run. It has profound modifications to the suspension and chassis, and it packs a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine. This beast generates 592 horses and 516 pound-feet of torque. You also get race seats and many unique trim stylings.
Fundamentally, the 2019 Jaguar XE has a great chassis and set of features. The all-wheel drive gives you traction without impacting the steering.
Acceleration works well and doesn't raise any unnecessary drama. Other than rare circumstances, the XE responds well to throttle, adding to driver confidence. From zero, the XE can reach 60 miles per hour in 7.5 seconds, although this is slightly below class par.
You'll have good control over the brakes around town. The pedals are firm, though the tops are a bit soft. Harder stops don't rattle the XE, which remains composed. However, it takes a long 134 feet to come to a panic stop from 60 miles per hour.
The steering and handling both work with one another, allowing the Jaguar and driver to both feel alive on the road. The tire grip isn't fantastic, but the body still feels agile and nimble.
At the end of the day, the 2019 Jaguar XE is a fun vehicle to drive. The shifts of the eight-speed automatic transmission feel smooth if a little bit delayed. Still, the XE behaves well when it matters.

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Jaguar XE invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Jaguar XE MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
