2018 Jaguar XE vs. 2018 Acura TLX

Jaguar XE

Acura TLX


Performance luxury sedans combine pure speed with a refined driving experience. If you're shopping in this category, you might be wondering how the 2018 Jaguar XE and the 2018 Acura TLX compare. They're both capable of transporting your family all over Hoffman Estates, but if you want more power, diesel capability, and performance features, there's only one real choice.

Base Trim Performance

The Jaguar XE has a racing pedigree that the TLX just can't match. Let's check out the performance stats of each model's base trim:

  • The 2018 Jaguar XE 25t uses a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that puts out 247 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. That extra power will come in handy when passing vehicles on Interstate 90 in Hoffman Estates.

  • The 2018 Acura TLX base trim comes with a larger 2.4L four-cylinder engine, but it offers lower performance numbers. This power plant delivers 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque.

If a vehicle with more responsive acceleration is on your shopping list, go with the Jaguar XE.

Available Engine Options

A performance sedan shouldn't just supply power in the base trim. It should adhere to a higher level of performance throughout the model line. Let's explore the highest powered configuration of each vehicle:

When you upgrade the 2018 TLX with a 3.5L V6 engine, you're increasing its output to 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque.

The 2018 XE S can be equipped with a 3.0L V8 supercharged engine. Jaguar engineers have worked hard to get every drop of power they can from this robust power plant, resulting in 380 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.

In addition, you have the option to outfit the XE with a 2.0L turbodiesel engine for more efficiency and trusted acceleration. That's another option you won't find in the TLX.

Confidence-Inspiring Features

Both models can be upgraded with high tech features, but only one uses modern engineering to supply better traction and control. The following systems are only available when you purchase the Jaguar XE:

  • Torque Vectoring

  • Adaptive Surface Response

  • All Surface Progress Control

  • Double Wishbone Front Suspension

When you're driving during a rough winter storm in Schaumburg, you'll be glad you have the smooth handling these features provide.
