2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class VS 2018 Jaguar XE
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2018 Jaguar XE: Performance
The 2018 Jaguar XE’s handling is on point and favors athleticism, though it’s still composed for comfortable daily driving. The standard engine in a 2018 XE is a turbocharged four-cylinder with a 247-horsepower rating. Its snappy acceleration and refined eight-speed automatic transmission (the sole gearbox for the XE) make this sports sedan enjoyable to drive. The XE comes standard with rear-wheel drive and includes a torque vectoring system that enhances stability when cornering.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2018 Jaguar XE: Feature Comparison
The 2018 Jaguar XE has accommodating front seats and a quiet cabin. However, a number of drawbacks – including limited back-seat legroom, lackluster materials and build quality, a narrow trunk, and tech that some find awkward to use. The XE’s base infotainment system is composed of the InControl Touch interface, an 8-inch touch-screen display, HD Radio, a USB port, *Bluetooth®, and a six-speaker audio system. Other standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, push-button start, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Jaguar’s infotainment interface gets inconsistent feedback from critics. Some like the large, sleek display screen and say the system is responsive, while others wish for more redundant buttons and report that the interface is slow, especially with regard to the available navigation system.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2018 Jaguar XE: Overall Comparison
The 2018 Jaguar XE has great overall performance. However, with a below-average predicted reliability rating and mixed reviews for its back seat, trunk, and infotainment technology, it sits near the bottom of the luxury small car rankings. As a relatively new addition to the class, the XE is a good option for those who want something a little less commonplace parked in their driveway. However, if you want to stand out with sharp exterior styling or an overly posh interior, you’re out of luck; the XE doesn’t quite hang with some of its German counterparts.
