Jaguar vs. Leopard: Jaguar XE Versus The Big Cat

April 14th, 2018 by
2018 Jaguar XE

Shopping for a Jaguar XE or leopard for your I-10 cruise? Look no further than the Jaguar XE. The Jaguar XE outperforms the leopard in these key commuter areas:

  • Top speed
    • Jaguar XE = 120 MPH
    • Leopard = 36 MPH
  • Comfort
    • Jaguar XE = Seats five
    • Leopard = Seats one with a saddle
  • Safety
    • Jaguar XE = AWD, Torque Vectoring, and Adaptive Surface Response
    • Leopard = Protection against predators, but no seatbelts
  • Efficiency
    • Jaguar XE = 28 combined MPG
    • Leopard = No gas. Fueled by gazelles, impalas, and deer – you’re better off finding a gas station.


When trying to get to work in Manhattan Beach, or simply enjoying a leisurely drive to your favorite sushi spot, you want to make sure your ride can go fast. The Jaguar XE provides drivers a top speed of 120 MPH with its 2.0L 247 HP turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. A leopard, on the other hand, can only go 36 MPH. The leopard doesn’t even have an engine.


When thinking about getting a new ride, comfort is a crucial concern to Venice drivers. With a Jaguar, you get five leather seats, Jaguar InControl® technology, and more. Plus, you can seat passengers in your travels. With a leopard – if you are able to throw a saddle on it – you can take one person somewhere slowly. It’s clear: the Jaguar XE is the winner.


The Jaguar XE provides walls, doors, airbags, seatbelts, headlights, at the most basic level. The leopard is a wild animal; you won’t even get seatbelts. The Jaguar XE provides premium safety features. The leopard? No way.


The leopard’s lack of engine, no doubt, calls its efficiency into question. The Jaguar XE, however, gets a solid 28 combined MPG. The Leopard needs fuel from gazelles, impalas, or deer, all of which can be hard to spot – or fairly expensive – in busy Santa Monica.

Look No Further than the Jaguar XE

The Jaguar XE is a good choice when considering your next luxury car. It not only beats out the leopard, but the Lexus IS, as well. Explore more Jaguar trivia, and then get your Jaguar XE at Jaguar Santa Monica today!

I had such a great experience today at Hornburg Sta Monica. Reading some of these reviews made me hesitant, but they had the vehicle I wanted. And I'm so glad I went! Darryl was easy to work with and after talking with him, I knew this was the right place compared to the other Hornburg dealership I had visited. Vivian sealed the deal. Thanks everyone! I love my car!!!

What a surprise! I met w Max and Vivian who really helped me to understand the car buying process. They're personable and really knowledgable, as well as honest. They answered all my questions and made the experience smooth for me. They just re-opened too, and the store is very clean w hand sanitizing stations throughout. I felt safer seeing that. Overall terrific experience. Recommending this place to my friends & family.  AWESOME. Thanks!

Late March 2020 I leased a Range Rover HSE. With the guidance, the expertise and the patience of my salesman Steliani Tomozei, I got the car that I wanted. He made sure that I knew how to drive it off the lot accompanied by all the bells and whistles that applied to me. This is the second Range Rover that I have leased through him and I hope there will be many more.

I mean what an experience!! Kenny and Vivian are complete professionals that understand what they are doing and most importantly know how to treat a customer. What started as an inquiry over the phone with in an hour turned into me driving to the dealership to sign the papers. It's exciting to get a new car and even more exciting when everyone involved has the same enthusiasm. Kenny was very thorough and Vivian locked it in with an offer that was so unbelievably you couldn't even imagine. The best and easiest experience!! The dealership is super clean, they have a ...

Kenny was super helpful and knowledgeable when picking out a car suitable for my needs. If you go to get a Range Rover or Jaguar ask for Kenny by name. Thanks Kenny for getting me the best deal on a R-Dynamic Range Rover Evoque.

We had a fantastic experience buying a Land Rover from Hornburg Santa Monica, and particularly working with Gary.  He was able to quickly determine over the phone that he had a vehicle we were interested in, and made things happen really seamlessly when we visited the dealership later the same day.   Gary was incredibly knowledgeable about all the packages, options, and features of the different models, and made our decision super easy.  We were in and out in 3 hours, which is an absolute record!  And, Gary was so nice, super smart, and just a pleasure to do business with.   Would ...
