The Jaguar XE has been named Best Large Car in the 2015 Diesel Car Magazine Awards, beating tough competition from the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Ford Mondeo.
The judges praised the XE’s competitive pricing, beautiful looks, classy cabin, low CO2 emissions and its sporty driving dynamics.
Diesel Car Editor Ian Robertson said:
“With a thrilling driving experience that enthusiasts yearn for and class-leading emissions, Jaguar has taken on the Germans and beaten them at their own game!”
The Jaguar XE is the only car in its class to feature a lightweight aluminium-intensive monocoque which, combined with Jaguar Land Rover’s efficient new Ingenium diesel engines, helps it to deliver fuel economy as high as 75mpg and emissions as low as 99g/km CO2.
Arriving in Jaguar retailers next month, prices will start from £26,990.
