Jaguar vs. Leopard: Jaguar XE Versus The Big Cat

April 14th, 2018 by
2018 Jaguar XE
Leopard

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.

Speed

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.

Comfort

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.

Safety

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.

Efficiency

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 just purchased a Lexus from Santa Monica dealership-I can say my experience with Ken was excellet from the beginning. He is very knowledgeable and will assist you to find the vehicle that meets your needs in every way. The dealership staff are all very professional, and you will receive exceptional customer service.

My experience at Land Rover Santa Monica has been exceptional. The team made the process of searching for and buying my new vehicle incredibly easy and stress-free. At no point did I feel anxious about leasing my new car. Ali, Dino, Kenny, and Cam were all extremely kind and professional throughout the entire process. I scheduled an appointment to return five days later, and Cameron, the software specialist, walked me through every feature of my brand-new car. Thanks to his thorough explanation, I now confidently understand all the functions and can drive knowing I have mastered all the bells and ...
