depending on price the XE could also bring the Infinti Q50 and Lexus IS into the mix...

Can't forget the Japanese! Both the Q50 and IS look great to me but there just something about British vehicles that i love.

The C-Class, mm, well, it looks good, like a mini S-Class, but the Mercs all tend to look old, BMW, well you know what they say about BMW's and their drivers, so no comparison, A4, Audi drivers are getting an awful rep in the UK for bad behaviour, in the same vein that BMW drivers did a few years ago.

I am sure that bad Jag drivers would just be called hooligans, and spivs, better than "dickhead" which is currently the BMW drivers name of choice. LOL

Apologies for any offence caused by using a common term aimed at all BMW drivers.

feck the audi and its FWD only guise. Quattro is a good system no doubt, but I've never been particularly interested in it. Its interesting because I've always felt the 3er with Xdrive felt worse, same with Mercs and 4 matic.

But at least the Bim and Merc will let their asses hang out, while the Audi under steers FOR THE WIN!

FWD is a major no-no, not having it at all.
I don't care how refined they make it. Plus im not much of an audi guy, they just make them too simple.

actually we should also consider the Cadillac ATS. I know cadillac does not have much cachet across Europe, I am hearing they will be making a huge effort in the coming year to gain acceptability in Europe.

I suppose its nearly the opposite in North America. I imaing emost American buyers would favor the ATS over the XE...

The ATS is a good one to consider to rival this. Seems like the segment has a lot cars this time around, just curious to see how the XE stands among all of them

Europe does not seem to like many US brands, Chevy is going, Chrysler is cutting the range, and selling far less than last year, and that was less than previous years, Dodge has gone, No Buick or Scion, Cadillac keeps popping up and then leaving again, so expect to see few sold, as buyers have long memories, and I for one would not be tempted if they are just going to pull out after a year or two, like Chevy has done, you don't build a customer base by, and sorry for this, crapping on them from a height.

Well chevy soiled themselves when they tried to sell Korean clunkers with a bowtie on the front. Chrysler is reducing their scale because of FCA, many chrysler products will still be sold across Europe albeit with a FIAT or Alfa badge, Feck even the Ghibli has Chrysler 300 bones under it. Jeep is making a strong push into Europe with Cherokee and Renegade, while dodge is going to be killed everywhere IMO. Buicks in NA are simply OPELS/Vauxhalls there, as for Scion I wouldnt really classify them as an American brand, FRS is just GT86 there anyways.

But Europe does like Ford...

For Europe in particular it will be more about the monthly note than dimensions. Company car culture..

Nice dimensions comparison.
From how i see it from looking at all those specs, it shouldn't make too much of a difference to buyers.
