The 2020 Jaguar XE sedan drops diesel and V6 engines from its lineup and is offered only in two trim levels, each of which is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. All models feature an eight-speed automatic transmission, with the base model sending power to the rear wheels. All-wheel-drive is an option on the base model and the only means of propulsion on the top trim. Furthermore, the top trim gets unique body panels, upgraded brakes, a special steering wheel, sport seats, and a boost in power from 247 hp to 296. However, most other standard features remain the same. Some changes are made to the offerings though, as the sportier R-Dynamic trim also gets access to 20-inch wheels. Standard features across the range include a panoramic sunroof, front and rear parking sensors, leather upholstery, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control, and lane-keep assist.
A number of additional packages and standalone options are available for the 2020 Jaguar XE. One of the easiest boxes to tick is for SiriusXM satellite radio, which costs $300. That said, this should probably have been thrown in for free, considering how much you pay. The Technology Pack costs $1,950 and adds a secondary 5.5-inch touchscreen below the main infotainment screen. This controls climate settings and a few other basic car functions. The package also adds wireless charging, a 12.3-inch configurable driver info display, and a head-up display. The Drive Pack costs $1,700 and adds adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and high-speed emergency braking. However, you have to add approach lights to the mirrors, thus bringing the real cost of this package to $2,060.
