Jaguar vs. Leopard: Jaguar XE Versus The Big Cat

April 14th, 2018 by
2018 Jaguar XE

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.


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.


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.


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.


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 Hornburg Jaguar Santa Monica today!

Excellent experience and very happy with my new car. I've purchased and leased several cars from this dealership and Vladimir and Michael are wonderful to work with and make the process smooth. Everyone is pleasant to work with from financing to the sales team. This is why I am a returning customer for over 10 years. Thank you Santa Monica Team!!

Came to this dealership to inquire about leasing a Range. My best friend leased her first Jaguar recently and she had an amazing experience with the sales team. I was lucky to be helped by the lead sales manager Vladimir, since it was a super busy day and all salesmen were working with other customers. He was more than helpful, extremely knowledgeable and professional. We  were able to find me the best possible leasing option for my budget and needs and I walked out with my first Range. Aleks was also phenomenal, he helped with some details and together they made this process enjoyable and fast. Highly highly recommended.

Pace and was out of the door within 2 1/2 hours. Within that time I had an opportunity to test drive the vehicle, review features, and sign my paperwork.   The following day I returned for my beautiful new truck (by choice), which had been cleaned and polished to the core. I also had an in-depth one on one, ensuring that I was confident in operating everything as I left the lot. Kenny, thank you for an extraordinary shopping experience! Many Blessings!
