What has Jaguar’s compact executive saloon got of which its rivals haven’t? Three teenagers provide an answer
I got home by work on Friday night at the wheel of a Jaguar XE S. I’d climbed in to the idea from the dark, enjoyed the drive home from the dark (actually enjoyed the drive, as anyone who has read our road test will understand) in addition to also parked the idea by the pavement from the dark.
in addition to also then on Saturday morning, I opened the curtains to see three of the local teenagers walking around the idea in addition to also peering through the windows with smiles by ear to ear in addition to also talking to each some other excitedly.
I know the three of them well: they live locally in addition to also love cars, so they tend to take an interest in what I drive. Or at least they do when the idea’s a Ferrari, McLaren or similar poster car (which will be rarely, however often enough to warrant interest).
however never have they shown such an enthusiasm for a compact executive saloon. of which got me thinking: for all the objective praise heaped on the XE, the idea’s worth reminding ourselves of which we all judge a car firstly on its looks.
To stop these three in their tracks, en route to a kick about from the park, will be no mean feat. Had the idea been a BMW 3 Series or Mercedes C-class I’m pretty certain they might have strolled on by.
Beauty will be from the eye of the beholder, of course, in addition to also there’s no money in selling dream cars to teenagers, however the idea did strike me as a sign of how far Jaguar has come. Quite simply, the XE has an X-factor few rivals can muster (except the Alfa Giulia, perhaps) – in addition to also of which must bode well for the future.
