Lane Keep Assist will steer the car back into its lane automatically

Safety and After Sales Service – The XE gets 6-airbags, ABS with EBD and traction control. The facelifted model also features Lane Keep Assist and Driver Fatigue Monitor. The XE has scored a full 5-star rating at Euro NCAP making it a very safe car. JLR’s dealer network is not as strong as the German brands but is improving.

The facelifted Jaguar XE is a worthy rival to the BMW 3-Series

Verdict – The XE remains one of the best driver’s cars in the segment and is certainly a looker! The facelift has made the package more appealing. The XE has built on its strengths like sharp design and sorted dynamics and has worked on areas like ride comfort and a more premium cabin. The result is an incredibly strong package which is all ready to take on the established rivals. Some shortfalls like a slightly cramped backseat still remain but at Rs. 53.9 lakhs, on-road Mumbai, there is no denying that the XE is a better value and a car that needs to be seriously considered, if you want a compact luxury saloon.
