Great looking White diesel as well!

ot much, really. The exterior design is a real grower - with its cab-forward stance, short overhangs, and strong graphics, it's better resolved overall than the over-styled BMW and slightly porky looking C-Class.

The cabin is a slight let-down, though. It's clean and functional, and real effort has gone into the infotainment system, which supports all manner of apps as is the modern way. The indicator stalk feels lovely.

But the sat-nav during our various test drives was horrendously glitch-prone, and some of the interior plastics are a bit Albert Steptoe. The XE is also notably spec-sensitive, and beware the colour and trim combinations lurking in the online configurator that yoke Jaguar to its unlamented bowls club past.

I like that they didn't have anything to dislike about it that would cause some real concern. But i'll be on the look out for dislikes mentioned with other reviews and see how consistent they are.

These are very impressive reviews indeed. I'm especially glad to hear that the electronic steering is so well executed. Now the only remaining questions are when can we get it here in the US and how much will it cost...

That said, anyone who uses the phrase "cab forward" to describe the XE needs a new automotive dictionary.

Be carefult hough Top Gear has always been notoriously biased to anything British. Jags and Astons have traditionally gotten a free pass from those boys. The editorial content may be different though...

So i've also been told.

At the end of it all, you just need to learn as much as you can and form your own opinion which is much more powerful and valuable to you.
