2018 Jaguar XE vs. 2018 Audi A4

Jaguar XE

Audi A4

          
  

In the world of performance luxury sedans, two vehicles stand apart: the 2018 Jaguar XE and the 2018 Audi A4. Both models offer upgradable engines, plenty of refined features, and reliable engineering to supply a unique driving experience. Whether you're cruising the shores of Lake Michigan, or just running to the grocery store in Schaumburg, either one might have you covered. However, when it comes to standard and available performance, as well as premium features, only one model gives you more.

Thrilling Power

Many customers might be considering the base trim for either one of these sedans. Which one will provide more power when the pedal hits the floor?

  • The 2018 Jaguar XE in the base trim puts out 247 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque from a 2.0L four-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive.

  • The 2018 Audi A4 base trim only manages 190 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque from a 2.0L four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive.

When you're accelerating on Interstate 90, all that extra power will come in handy.

Upgraded Performance

Both the XE and the A4 can be upgraded in a number of ways, including the XE's diesel engine. Let's look at the highest performance configuration of each vehicle:

  • The Audi A4 Prestige Quattro with an upgraded 2.0L four-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive reaches 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.

  • The Jaguar XE 35t Portfolio Limited Edition includes a 3.0L V6 engine with all-wheel drive, and it delivers a mammoth 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.

That kind of performance propels the Jaguar XE into sports car territory, while the A4 can only lag behind.

High End Features

Not only is the 35t Portfolio Limited Edition well equipped when it comes to performance-it also provides an unrivaled level of luxury. This line leading trim includes the following:

  • Cooled Driver and Passenger Seat

  • Premium Leather

  • Heated Rear Seats

  • Heated Steering Wheel

  • Reverse Tilt Passenger Side Mirror

  • 825 Watt Speaker System

Sadly, the A4 Prestige doesn't include any of those features.
