2019 Jaguar XE vs. Its Competition

2019 Jaguar XE
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class are titans among small compact luxury cars and still sell in massive numbers.

The C-Class is one of our favorites thanks to its elegant style and impressive powertrains.

The 3-Series is new for 2019; we’ll report back once we’ve driven it.

The Audi A4 isn’t far behind and impresses with its available tech and sharp looks.

The ATS is aged and not long for showrooms.

Discounts should be plentiful.

Same goes for the Lexus IS, we’re not as sold on its base turbo-4.

Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.
