JAGUAR XE VERSUS THE BMW 3 SERIES

AutoExpress compare XE and the BMW 3 Series: “In this crucial part of the market, buyers are led as much by crunching numbers as they are by their eyes and hearts. … we’ve brought together the two contenders in an exclusive studio shoot to prod, measure and analyse every inch (with full specs, below), and help you make a fully informed decision between the two.“

“…the XE … is predicted to retain 47 per cent of its new price after three years and 30,000 miles, compared to the 320d ED Business’s 40 per cent. This is one of the reasons Jag thinks the XE will perform strongly in the fleet sector. It sees the car as key to plans to grow global fleet and business sales from 17 per cent currently to around 25 per cent by 2020.”

AutoExpress compares the two for design, engines, and range and determines: “the XE looks like it has all the credentials to topple the 3 Series.”
