How much does the Jaguar XE cost to run?

The 2.0L diesel is the most economical Jaguar XE to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Jaguar XE 2.0L diesel is free to tax, as it sits in tax band A.

It does just over 75 MPG on average, which means it will cost £8.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Volvo V60 2.4L diesel and the more thirsty Audi A4 2.0L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 22, which is lower than the Audi A4 2.0L diesel, but higher than the BMW 1 Series 2.0L diesel. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Audi A4 has the lowest insurance group.)

Jaguar XE: How big is the boot?

The Jaguar XE has a below average boot space (455 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and 2 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 3 large bags or 3 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Volvo V60 estate is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 564 litres.

Is the Jaguar XE easy to park?

This is one of the widest cars in the class, which makes it feel like a bit of a squeeze in the multi-stories. If that stresses you a bit, try the much narrower BMW 1 Series.

If you don’t park in the street that much, then the XE is fine. It will go in to an average street slot, giving you a gap of 128mm to swing in and out. But if you street park a lot you may want to look at the BMW 1 Series.

Which Jaguar XE has the best performance?

The fastest Jaguar XE from 0-60, is the 5L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 700 lbs/ft torque and 600 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 3.3 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Mercedes Benz C Class 4.0L petrol, which is slower by 0.6 seconds.
