Shopping for a Jaguar XE or leopard for your Annapolis commute? 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 (if you can get a saddle on it)
  • Safety
    • Jaguar XE = AWD, Torque Vectoring, Adaptive Surface Response, and much more
    • Leopard = Protection against predators
  • Efficiency
    • Jaguar XE = 28 combined MPG
    • Leopard = Fueled by gazelles, Impalas, deer, and wildebeest (it’s much easier to find gas stations…)

Speed and Efficiency

When trying to get to work in Edgewater or enjoying a leisurely drive, 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, while a leopard can only go 36 MPH with no horsepower or engine. A lack of engine for the leopard really brings the efficiency into question as well. The Jaguar XE gets a solid 28 combined MPG while the Leopard needs fuel from a gazelle, deer, or wildebeest, which can be tough to find and expensive in the Annapolis area.

When thinking about getting a new ride, comfort is often very important to drivers. With a Jaguar, you get five luxurious leather seats, great Jaguar InControl® technology, and the ability to include passengers in your travels. With a leopard – if you can get a saddle on it – you can take one person somewhere slowly. It’s obvious the Jaguar wins here.

The Jaguar XE provides walls, doors, airbags, seatbelts, headlights, at the most basic level. The leopard is a wild animal; it doesn’t even give you cup holders. The Jaguar XE provides premium safety features while the leopard does not.
