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!

I highly recommend anybody shopping for a new Jag/ Range Rover/ Discovery to go to the Hornburg dealership in Santa Monica. Don't be put off by the temporary construction of their showroom, they are still the best Hornburg location in LA! Boris was fantastic and helped me find the Velar with the EXACT specs I wanted, let me test drive again, then even offered to deliver the car to my home as I had driven to the dealership in my other car. I always find car shopping kind of stressful but this was such an easy and pleasant experience. Everybody I met working at Hornburg SM was friendly and helpful from the front desk, financing and sales... especially compared to my experiences with the team from the Sunset Hornburg location which was horrendous (I left them a review too!). When Boris delivered my new car to me shortly after it was washed, he then spent time helping me download the InControl app, set up my navigation, set my garage clicker, sync my phones, click in the little extras like bag hook/ coat hangar etc. super helpful and I really appreciated that he helped me like this AFTER the sale, when he technically didn't need to. Thank you Boris for helping me get my beautiful new Range Rover Velar... I love it!

I cannot speak highly enough of the service I have consistently received from Vladimir Pejcic over the past 3 years, and more recently, Zvi Aviad. This is my second lease through Hornburg SM and the level of commitment, dedication and patience they have shown to keeping me happy as a customer has been outstanding on all levels. Yes the showroom is currently under construction, and yes, the whole team are exceptionally busy, however those are just incidentals, in the larger scheme of things, excellent customer service will trump those minor issues every time. The porters, valet, reception and finance - all superb. Excellent experience from beginning to end.

Nesh and Steilan were amazing! They made the process so easy and pleasant. I was looking to lease a Range Rover (either the sport or the Velar)  and they answered all my questions and took the time to help me make my decision. They are very knowledgeable and I couldn't be happier with my car! 🙂
