  • Though I'm a BMW fan in general I'm always happy to see other automakers bring their A-game to compete. Competition drives all automakers to be better. Curious to see which type of driver this new Jag appeals to most, though. The one who values style, luxury comfort, or handling?

    Will reservere final judgement until I see it up close and personal. But, as I feared, the XE appears to be a bit "mini-XF" in exterior style. Not a bad thing, just disappointing. Perhaps pix don't yet do it justice. Nice to see buttons in the interior, though!

    '13 Jaguar XF, possibly my favorite of all the cars I've owned. But, my '09 Jag XK was a beauty, as was my '05 Acura TL, '88 Acura Integra, '84 Mitsubishi Mirage Turbo & '78 VW Scirocco (my first!). And, of course, the '92 Nissan Sentra SE-R and '95 Saab 900s I bought for the ex... Ok, I like a lot of the cars in my life.

  • Disappointed in the early shots of its interior. Seems exceptionally bland, particularly given the new Mercedes C class, and what will surely be a fantastic new A4 interior once the redesign is out (especially in light of the need to keep Audi interiors #1 in the face of the new Benz).

  • A little XFish, but I like the grill. I think the interior is fine and it certainly looks well laid out. We'll see how it looks in real life though.....and how much of the German crowd will accept something different.

  • Love the exterior styling in general, but I hate, sorry, HATE, that hideous, oversized sunroof. I'm also not a fan of the "warp Field Adjuster" gear selector. My local Jag dealer says they do go wrong and seem vulnerable to drink spillage. If Jag lets us have the V6 motor without the shouty seats I could take the blandness of the rest of the interior.

  • Sounds like Jaguar has done its homework. This should be a game changer in this class. Glad they stayed with the rotary gear changer. It's a smart device, easy to use and doesn't intrude on interior space.
