Love driving this car!
Purchased a used 2015 Jaguar XE 20t Prestige with 130000 kms privately in excellent condition and full Jag history since new. Have had it now for 6 months and absolutely love it. Even though it's the 'base model', it has just about everything most people would want, even self parking. Coming from used Audis, BMWs and Lexus, I would rate the Jag up there with the best. Great driving position, handling is fantastic, comfortable and 7.5L/100km, which is better than most other cars I have had in this category. I also like it because it stands out o...Read moren the road, but in a subtle way. Leg room is tight in the back, but it's not a car intended for families or frequent adults in the rear anyway (buy a Jag XF if you need more rear leg room). In my 6 months of ownership, I have had zero problems and the service history would say the same for its first 5 years of life too (apart from a Start/Stop issue, which appears reasonably common in early models according to forums). I would definitely recommend the XE to anyone who enjoys their driving and likes to drive something that you don't see many of on our roads. UPDATE: Had this car now for almost 12 months - not a single issue. It's a keeper. I would buy another one without hesitation, just in the slightly facelifted model (MY20). With Jaguar going all-electric from 2025, the XE will sadly be axed from its lineup close to that time.

My dream car
Purchased from JLR in Ballarat. I really wanted 25t, but opted instead for diesel due to longer service intervals and the fact that I will be doing a lot of kilometers for work.
The diesel, apart from turbo lag, does not disappoint. The fuel economy is amazing and on par with the claims. In 'Dynamic' mode, the car becomes more fun to drive.
I do not think there is more comfortable sedan out in the market at the moment; it soaks every bump on the road with ease.
The cabin is well put together, in my opinion. I read some people's comments w...

I got the dud car that has had issues since I bought it
You would think that Jaguar would produce a good car. No. Even they produce a number of duds in each production lot and unfortunately for me, I got the dud.
* The reversing camera does not work properly - instead of showing me everything in the camera, the camera turns off and the proximity sensors turn on and continue on, while I am driving straight until I get to a certain speed and they turn off. While I am parking the reversing cameras turn off completely. Sometimes I can't get them to turn on at all.

In my opinion the best value luxury car on the Australian Market
We looked at and compared all the EOFY deals and reviews going for luxury cars in our price range and narrowed our choice to either the Mercedes C Class or the Jaguar XE and in my opinion there was in the end no comparison between the base models of both vehicles, the XE basic features placed on the Mercedes would have cost an additional $10,000 which would more than make up for the future value of the cars. It also appears that Jaguar must have some degree of faith in their cars considering the distance between the free scheduled servicing.

Only problem is people keep staring then coming up to ask about the car...
I bought the MY2016 (first edition) with a swath of options.
This is my first Jaguar - I tried to not buy it, but could not help myself after driving one.
Powerful, extremely sharp handling, very comfortable and all the electronic safety measures (some of which were optional extras, admittedly) have meant I have rarely had a heart in the mouth moment. This car would be near impossible to crash... I am alerted to pending issues long before I'd usually notice them (and would otherwise then have to brake hard)... for example, the forward alert w...
Purchased at Jaguar Dealers for $71,435.

Best car I've owned
Bought my XE when it was brand new to the market in December 2015 and absolutely love it. All the mod cons that a driver could need, plus a few luxury features such as heated windscreen, heated seats, sports mode and that awesome panoramic sunroof just lift it from the ordinary into the superb. Jag's engine performance is quiet but gutsy and the car itself is very roomy for a compact sedan.

I love my new car
I love everything about my new Jaguar sedan. It has great styling and looks the real deal. The leather interior looks great, the seats are fully adjustable and very comfortable. The radio, sat Nav and other computerised features are easy to use and comprehensive. The car drives extremely well, with plenty of power and good fuel economy from the diesel motor. I can't fault a thing. I found purchasing the car from Concord Jaguar to be pleasant and professional and the follow up service has been great. Ive had many cars over the years but this is the first car I feel is really me.

Questions & Answers
I am looking at a Jag XE 20d Prestige, 2016 with 18000km. Appreciate if you can share your experience in particular the running cost and parts (being affordable and available in Australia). How does it compared to BMW 3 series?
Our car is 2018 so I'm not really up on any difference between the 2016. I think some of the earlier models had a Ford diesel which in my opinion after having five Mondeos with that motor would be no ...Read moredrawback at all. As the car was bought with a five year warranty and services running costs have not really been an issue we just fuel it up and it does not miss a beat. Jaguar in my opinion are a better opion than both BMW and AUDI.. nothing like seeing the leaper on the back of a car.
Hi, Leila. I have that exact same model, albeit it is a 2017-complied. Running costs are great as it requires service every 34,000kms or 2 yrs. You are looking about $900 for that. Since it is a diese...Read morel it drinks a lot of AdBlue, so make sure it will fit your circumstances. Diesels love regular highway drives and speed over 100km/h. If you don't drive long distances, it may not be the car for you. Mine has been great since I drive a lot for work. No issues at 70,000kms. Check if it has folding rear seats - this is actually an option with Jaguar.
Thank you so much for your kind replies, Regarding adblue can we refile ourselves?
hows this car after 3 years. I am looking at a used 2017 XE. Recommended?
I have only had it for about 2 and it has been good for me. 70,000kms so far. One issue with software (Android updated their version, so the streaming was breaking up) - easily rectified d...
It has just had it's first service at two years and the car is great, albeit we have done very few Kim's. My wife has an epace with the same diesel engine and does not perform any near as w...
