The Jaguar XE is a lot of fun to drive. It’s got great driving dynamics in terms of steering and overall balance, but it’s not particularly roomy or luxurious. Jaguar did fix some of that with the 2020 refresh, and we got a chance to take a close look at the new 2020 XE at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.

Since this is a refresh, the exterior styling changes are minimal — there are some changes to the headlights, taillights and bumper, but overall, it looks a lot like the outgoing model.
What’s really important is on the inside. Although it’s still pretty cramped in the cabin, Jaguar upped the luxury factor quite a bit with nicer materials and better consistency between the front seat and backseat.
One major change inside is a new dual touchscreen system called In Control Touch Pro Duo that gives you a 10.2-inch top screen and a smaller bottom screen. We’ve tested the system in other Jaguar and Land Rover products and we’re not too wild about it, but we’re eager to test it out in the XE.
