The 2018 Jaguar XE Diesel Sedan makes for an excellent contender in the compact sedan class. With 4 trims on offer, the Jaguar XE diesel has a base MSRP of $37,225, with prices going all the way up to an MSRP of $47,325. The BMW 3 Series Diesel is the only direct competitor to the XE Diesel. Therefore, we compare it with its closest rivals with the gasoline powertrain such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A4. Only a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 diesel engine is offered, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Together, they produce 180 horsepower and 318 lb-ft of torque. Accelerating from 0-60 in 7 seconds, the XE Diesel maintains a combined fuel economy of 36 MPG. Jaguar offers the XE Diesel in 12 stunning colors, with the Italian Racing metallic being a particular favorite of ours.
