2020 Jaguar XE Interior and Cargo

Jaguar XE Interior & Cargo Rating

2020 XE Interior

2020's Jaguar XE has an interior that is vastly improved from that of older models. Gone are the masses of hard plastics and in their place are much-improved soft-touch materials. The interior is still not class-leading, nor is it even close, but far better than it used to be. A dual-screen infotainment system is also now available, and heated front seats are also on the options list. However, rear space is at a premium, and the front seats are the only ones taller individuals should attempt to use. To help make up for its shortcomings, a head-up display and a 12.3-inch digital driver display are available.

Seating and Interior Space

The Jaguar XE is a five-seater, as most cars in this segment are, but the rear of the cabin is very cramped for taller individuals. If your body type is of notable girth, you won't want more than one companion joining you back there either. In the front, the power-adjustable 12-way seats are a little better, and legroom and headroom are far more accommodating. Getting in and out of the car is also not too bad, and large windows aid decent visibility all round. While the German and Italian rivals in the segment offer a near-perfect driving position, this Brit is not far off, although some may wish for a slightly better thought-out cabin design, as door handles and window switches are awkwardly placed.

Interior Colors and Materials

All new Jaguar XE models now come with leather upholstery as standard, with the top-trim getting perforated leather and contrasting stitching as a bonus. Ebony, Ecru, and Light Oyster are the leather colors you can have at no cost on the base S model, with Windsor leather available at $2,150. The R-Dynamic model drops the Ecru color in favor of a stunning Mars Red, and Siena Tan is also available. Again, Windsor leather can be specced in all available colors for the same price. Headlining can be had in either Light Oyster or, for $275, Ebony Morzine. The dash and door trims come in Gloss Black as standard, or you can have Meshed Aluminum or Monogram Aluminum for $200. Also available are various wood veneers for $400 or gloss carbon fiber for $1,300.

2020 XE Trunk and Cargo Space

With an average-sized trunk measuring 14.5 cubic feet in volume, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the Jaguar XE is a relatively practical vehicle. Yet, despite some competitors having smaller trunks, the XE's cargo area is one of the worst in its segment, with a small, awkward opening and an odd shape that is not conducive to fitting luggage or other larger items. Trying to fit two large suitcases in the trunk of the Jag is something to avoid if you have any valuables or fragile items in the bags.

In the cabin, the door pockets are shallow but long, and the center console, in which the cupholders reside, is at least fairly large. Under the center armrest is another useful bin, while the average glovebox can hold the owner's manual and a couple of other small items.

2020 XE Infotainment and Features


Every XE comes with LED headlights and heated mirrors, as well as 12-way power-adjustable front seats that are trimmed in leather. Auto high beams and rain-sensing wipers are also included, as is lane-keep assist, a digital rearview mirror, ambient lighting, and parking sensors. You also get dual-zone climate control, hill start assist, cruise control, a drowsy driver monitor, and a panoramic sunroof. Heated and ventilated 16-way power front seats are available, as are options like a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel, a 12.3-inch interactive driver display, and wireless charging. A 360-degree parking camera and a parking assistant can also be had, as well as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, keyless entry, a power trunk lid, and adaptive dampers. Heated rear seats are also available.


The XE's standard infotainment system is comprised of a 10.2-inch touchscreen, with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and HD Radio. This is connected to a six-speaker sound system as standard. Optionally available is a secondary 5.5-inch screen that takes care of features like the climate control system, freeing up more room for things like your navigation maps. SiriusXM can be added for $300. Also available are a choice of two Meridian audio upgrades, the first of which adds 10 speakers and the second of which features 16 speakers. Each Meridian system also comes with a subwoofer. Sadly, despite the attractive graphics, Jaguar's infotainment systems continue to be buggy and laggy, and this detracts from the experience of enjoying the car.
