It comes with a choice of supercharged V6 and V8 engines, with power ranging from a 335 bhp V6 in the entry-level to a monstrous 543 bhp V8 when fully kitted out.
Jaguar XE: Jaguar latest XE range received Auto Express’s Compact Executive Car of the Year in 2015.

The 161 bhp 2.0d Ingenium diesel engine comes just under the emissions threshold at 99g/km, making it the perfect choice for those looking for a company car. It’s also the Jaguar’s most economical car, with an official 74.6 mpg.
Jaguar XF: The Jaguar XF was named the best car of the past decade in 2011 thanks to its best in class ride quality and pitch-point handling. Despite its age, it’s still a great buy even today especially if you can find a good deal on the 161bhp 2.2-litre diesel here.
