You’ll experience two of the most engaging sedans in the world with the 2017 Jaguar XE and the 2017 Infiniti Q50, but only one can end up on your driveway. Though both models rest at the pinnacle of design, the XE ultimately manages to pull ahead. Read on to find out how.

Power and Performance

Jaguar has been at the forefront of the sports-car segment for generations, whereas the Infiniti Q50 is a relatively new entry. The difference between thoroughbred performer and up-and-comer becomes painstaking clear when you compare the power of the 2017 Jaguar XE against that of the 2017 Infiniti Q50.

The Jaguar offers:

  • 2.0L 4-Cylinder Turbo: Makes up to 240-hp and 251 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • 2.0L 4-Cylinder Turbocharged Diesel: Makes up to 180-hp and 318 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • 3.0L Supercharged V6: Makes up to 340-hp and 332 lb.-ft. of torque.

The 2017 Infiniti Q50 offers only a 208-hp 2.0L four-cylinder as standard, and there’s no diesel option of which to speak. You’ll find mileage peaking at 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with the Q50 vs a far healthier 32 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway with the XE.

Features

The 2017 Jaguar XE is a luxury model through and through, and it boasts the kind of state of the art technologies needed to make good on that promise.

XE features include:

  • InControl Wi-Fi: The vehicle’s high-power antenna is able to create a 3G Wi-Fi hotspot that can sync with up to eight devices at once. With the 2017 Infiniti Q50, you’ll have to dig into your data plan while trusting the temperamental Wi-Fi connection of your smartphone.
  • 10.2-Touchscreen: The Q50 can provide an 8-inch touchscreen, which is pretty much the same as you could expect from a non-luxury nameplate. The Jaguar goes further by delivering a large and responsive 10.2-inch touchscreen.
  • Driver Condition Monitor: The XE can monitoring the way you’re driving to detect any signs that your focus is wandering. Should this occur, the steering wheel will shake slightly and the XE will suggest a break. The Q50 offers no such feature.
  • Head-Up Display: Have vital driving information projected directly onto your windshield to keep data such as navigation directions and cruising speed easy to read. You won’t find the same with the Q50.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition with Intelligent Speed Limiter: Detects speed limit and no passing signs, then displays them usefully on the instrument panel. The Intelligent Speed Limiter uses that information, along with navigation data, to help keep you below the given speed limit. The Q50 lacks this technology.
