It"s a question we"ve been asking ourselves since the 2017 Audi A4 và the 2017 Jaguar XE first rolled inlớn our driveways: which one"s better, và can either of them asckết thúc khổng lồ the 3-Series" old slot as the top compact sport sedan?

We find no shortage of irony that the staid British luxury brvà is the upstart in this affair. Perhaps if the Jaguar XE’s seats were made of tweed, we’d feel more comfortable about the new four-door sedan.

Geographical generalities aside, we’re finding ourselves double-taking all the differences between the XE và the new Audi A4.

For the record: We were very nearly over the moon with the new XE. When it arrived on our shores, we were smitten with the drivability and fun from Jag’s newest sedan. The only negative sầu was the fact that it had was born alongside, and therefore overshadowed by, Jag’s new F-Pace crossover SUV.


Similarly, the timing of the lakiểm tra generation A4 could have been better, too. Audi is involved in a little dust-up over its engines, you may have sầu heard, & the A4 looks so cchiến bại lớn its predecessor that even fastidious Germans would be hard-pressed khổng lồ spot the alterations. Overall, the sedan is a dead-ringer for the family, even if it rides atop of a new platform and with sharper lines.

But both cars impressed us enough lớn qualify as finalists for our 2017 Best Car To Buy award. So, we brought them to lớn the hickory-smoked hills of north Georgia for a thorough what for. A winner emerged relatively quickly, but not from outright excellence.

I know, I know, hold on. Let me explain.

Jaguar XE: the basics

Jaguar’s history at small sedans is, we’ll say, checkered. Forget it.

The newest compact sedan arrived on our shores for the 2017 Mã Sản Phẩm year, rejuvenating the segment in a way we haven’t seen in a while.

Starting with Jaguar’s steadfast resolve sầu khổng lồ bring a diesel powertrain after Audi’s (và parent-company Volkswagen) public flub, the small XE seemed lượt thích a breath of fresh air in a segment that had started lớn grow stale.

The XE’s competence in corners is intoxicating. In both versions we’ve driven, gas and diesel, we couldn’t find fault in its flat character & willing attitude to lớn devour the line, hold it, và ask for more.

(While we’ve driven the 180-horsepower 2.0-liter diesel XE, we’ll keep most of the powertrain comments confined khổng lồ the 340-horsepower, 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 that we used to lớn blitz the back hills of rural Georgia. Please remember one thing: Even the base diesel has the XE’s best performance trait, which is its chassis.)

Starting at just under $36,000, the XE is a more graceful approach to lớn back roads than we’re making it sound. Its drama-miễn phí attitude và street smarts proved to lớn be a revelation for nearly all our editors who took the wheel. Editorial Director Marty Padgett surmised: “First sport sedan in a long time that I"ve thought could use a little more damping. Leans but in a composed way, và doesn"t hammer through corners as much as glide through them.”

Yes.

The XE is gifted with one of the best steering racks we’ve sầu found in the segment for quite some time, BMW’s lost its touch thanks khổng lồ a maniacal devotion to run-flat tires, và Audi and Mercedes seem uninterested in the idea. Senior Editor Andrew Ganz agreed: “The XE reminds me of the way BMWs used to be, with its predictable rear-wheel-drive dynamics & its good steering.”

 

Senior Editor Kirk Bell noted the discrepancy between the two engines, and we started to lớn get the feeling that this could be a landslide victory.

"First of all, this isn"t a fair fight in terms of power và dynamics. The 340-hp XE 35t Prestige would be better compared to lớn the Audi S4. Nonetheless, the Jag comes in at $49,095 compared to $54,275. That makes the Jaguar a sport sedan value in my book."

But corner after corner, as the miles marched by, we became less occupied by the stellar ability lớn take a phối và started to move khổng lồ everything else.

Short fonts doors made for awkward elbow ergonomics for taller drivers. In fact, as we climbed behind the wheel time và time again we noticed that our heads were positioned behind the B-pillar. That’s not a huge inconvenience, but the chunky door divider stayed in our periphery nearly the entire time.

“Stark cabin,” Padgett wrote.

Ganz was apparently reading over his shoulder, too: “Its interior is stark, its baông chồng seat tight, và its infotainment crashed for all of us (even though I actually lượt thích its menus & its navigation).”

That’s true. Despite a beautifully large 10-inch screen bezeled inlớn the center staông xã, we hopped inlớn the XE after a dash in the A4 & the screen went blank. Not a good start. The thực đơn system is bright and sharp, good resolution and an honest-to-goodness intuitive layout that’s not called “Apple CarPlay.”

For the driver, the XE is eager khổng lồ reward. If you’re a passenger in the experience, there are a few things left lớn be desired.

"What"s up with some of the Jaguar"s interior materials? The plastic over the IP is Chevy Spark unique, and there are some other hard plastics that fail to impress. The overall look of cabin is also almost painfully simple. There"s no thiết kế flair here lượt thích there is on the exterior, but a lighter color upholstery does add some visual interest," Bell said.

The view from the rear seats isn’t entirely comfortable. We found the front chairs to lớn be lacking enough scallop lớn wedge our knees in the back, và while we found that we could clone ourselves and ride in the baông chồng, we wouldn’t want to lớn vì it three abreast. The XE is a tiệc ngọt of four.

The potent engine & exceptional thrust is hard lớn ignore, however, even our love sầu affair with the powertrain waned.

“The start/stop is atrocious,” we wrote. “The V-6 sounds choked from the inside.”

“Car makes no qualms about being a BMW rival. I wish the engine were a little less cocky và vocal, though. Just as loud but not nearly as smooth to wind out as it wants to lớn be,” Padgett wrote.

It’s beautiful in approach, but its details are better at arm’s length. Even the upstart can’t break from tradition, it seems.

Audi A4: the basics

“Guess how much that A4 is,” I said, staring at a short slab of Fat Matt’s ribs & a long ride ahead to Blue Ridge, Georgia.

“I don’t even want to know,” Ganz said. (Was he talking about the ribs and the ride, or the price? Maybe both?)

“Over $54,000,” I said.

“Yikes.”

The new A4 has grown up in form size & price. While it’s only added half an inch in wheelbase from the last generation, the sharper lines & crisper hood hint at a more elegant mission than early sport compacts. The Audi A4’s cabin is so quiet on a highway slog, a stomach coming to grips with a rib sandwich sounds like thunder next door.

In many respects, the A4 is a very different approach than the XE. Where the XE makes a promise in big ideas, the Audi starts with the details. About 100 pounds were lost in the overall structure with use of more lightweight steel; the grille is a little wider và lower than last go-round lớn look a little squarer on the road; the trunk floor is just a hint lower for easier cargo loading.

Hardly exciting stuff, unless you’re an engineer.

“So anonymous in styling. This is the company that did the TT & R8? Where"s that kinship?” Padgett asked.

Its kinship begins and ends with the so-called virtual cockpit Audi planted in the A4. A gorgeous 12.3-inch high-resolution display in front of the driver relays information such as navigation, infotainment, và phone controls lớn the driver, sandwiched between speed và tach gauges.

Virtual cockpit is how good ideas are done better.

The difference between the R8 và TT’s application of virtual cockpit và the A4’s is in the redundant infotainment screen perched between driver & passenger. The A4 adds an 8.3-inch screen to display nearly the same information to passengers, including navigation & infotainment, but uses MMI’s cliông chồng wheel khổng lồ control the menus—even for Apple CarPlay. It"s clunky & difficult to use without taking your eyes off the road.

2017 Audi A4 vs. 2017 Jaguar XE


Fair enough.

Under the hood & between the wheels, we couldn’t ignore the obvious. The Audi’s 2.0-liter turbo-4 was no match for the Jag’s supercharged V-6 and nimble attitude. The engine has always been in the wrong place for the A4—over the front wheels for an all-wheel-drive car is less fun than vacation Bible school.

The Audi had plenty of hustle, and when coupled with optional adaptive dampers it made the most of its somewhat course direct-injection turbo-4. It’s 85 percent of the performance (of the XE) with 100 percent of the right attitude.

"Both engines are impressive. The Audi"s 2.0-liter turbo is one of the strongest of its ilk, but the Jaguar"s 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 is in another league," Bell wrote.

Long slogs and twisting corners didn’t confuse the Audi, even if it fell back when chasing the XE a couple times. But the best parts weren’t its outright capability, rather its composure and competence—và ability khổng lồ get up off the stool and answer the bell even if it was outgunned on paper by nearly 100 hp.

“The A4 offers better visibility, a transmission that felt more aligned with its engine, và a manageably high-tech cabin,” Ganz wrote.

The A4’s steering could be stiff, but its ride was firmly more confident.

“Hard khổng lồ beat its taut ride & sport mode responsiveness. Gets busy on main road but cuts through curves with a clearer sense of duty than the XE,” Padgett wrote.

The A4’s better than the sum of its parts. The Jag? Let’s talk.

The conclusion

If you’re thinking it was a tight race, you’re right.

The Jaguar’s XE faults almost made the oto more likeable, right down to lớn its engine configuration that couldn’t be more hopelessly British if it tried; to lớn make a V-6 from a V-8, engineers just filled up two cylinders.

But we found fewer flaws in the Audi & more attention to lớn detail.

Perhaps Ganz said it best: “It"s the A4 that I"d buy & the XE that I"d lease. One of these will be dutiful over the long run, while the other seems like a wild adventure. At least as far as compact sedans go.”
