The Jaguar XE plays in a crowded, competitive segment.
BMW’s 3-Series has long held the crown as the best handling car in the class, but the Alfa Giulia has risen to the top of the handling ranks, mostly for its stunning Quadrifoglio version.
The recently updated A4 is still boring, but tech and fuel economy are top of the heap; meanwhile, Mercedes has hit its stride with the C-Class, and it’s been updated recently with two levels of AMG power.
The Lexus IS has some funky styling and intriguing handling hardware, but has a long way to go before earning its sport sedan stripes like the rest.
