2017 Jaguar XE
2017 Audi A4
There are a lot of contenders in the compact-luxury sports sedan class. But it’s time to try something different. In a field dominated by German engineering, it’s time to give some of that British charm a chance. And it’s not just charm, it’s got the performance and comforts to back it up.
Beyond great engineering, you’ll find an incredible driving experience, which is what you’re looking for, right? Since that’s what you need, you should come by Jaguar Gulf Coast today and see for yourself. The 2017 Jaguar XE is the perfect companion for life around Mobile, Alabama, Biloxi, Mississippi, and Destin, Florida.
Torque to Compare
This seems to be where the Jaguar always pulls its own, and it’s in a spot that really counts. For someone like you who just loves driving, the torque the Jaguar XE delivers is sure to get your heart racing when you step on the gas.
- Jaguar XE – I4 Turbocharged, 240 hp @ 5500 rpm, 251 ft-lbs. @ 1750 rpm
- Audi A4 – Four cylinder, 190 hp @ 4200 rpm, 236 ft-lbs. @ 1450 rpm
While the A4 isn’t far behind by these measures, drivers love a Jaguar for its driving ability. And that’s exactly what you’ll find with the immediacy and responsiveness of the XE’s torque. This also includes torque vectoring, which applies braking to the inside wheel to make sure that the tire that needs the most traction gets it.
Chassis & Architecture
While the German cars, such as the Audi A4, are known for their precision engineering, Jaguar has pulled ahead with their chassis architecture. By using a lightweight aluminum alloy, the Jaguar XE delivers the sort of handling you only dream of in a sports car. With an optimum weight distribution near 50:50, you won’t find this sort of ideal performance platform in the Audi A4.
Pair this with the All-Wheel Drive and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics, and your performance has gotten even better. While the Audi A4 does offer Quattro all-wheel drive, the Jaguar Intelligent Driveline Dynamics, chassis and Adaptive surface response give you an overall great driving experience. And that’s what you care about, right?
Technology for All
The new Jaguar InControl Touch is an awesome infotainment multimedia system. It gives drivers easy access to navigation, Bluetooth, text-to-voice and other Jaguar apps, this system is the best way to stay connected and in control. Not to mention there is an optional laser Head-Up Display for giving you crucial driving information.
- Jaguar XE – Large, responsive, 10.2-inch touchscreen with enhanced navigation and Jaguar InControl Apps
- Audi A4 – Audi Connect on a 7.0-inch MMI Display
