How I’d spec it
The Jaguar XE starts out affordable at $46,295, but my tester has almost every option imaginable, sending its price to a near-ludicrous $63,375.
I’ll save some money right off the bat by sticking with a free paint color and the stock 19-inch wheels, which should improve the ride quality a smidge. The Black Exterior pack eliminates the outside chrome for $375 and is a must-have in my book. The $2,150 Windsor Leather option feels worth it, especially since it also includes 16-way seats with heat and ventilation. $250 adds heat to the steering wheel, and the $800 Meridian surround-sound system provides a lot of aural bang for your buck. Throw in the aforementioned $1,950 Touch Pro Duo upgrade and $1,365 for the connected-navigation package that adds traffic-sign recognition that works with the adaptive cruise control, and that’s about where I’d stop. That puts my out-the-door price at $54,180 including destination, which is much more palatable.
