Jaguar XE R-Sport 2.0 i4 180PS Auto road test report and review

Jaguar XE R-Sport 2.0 i4 180PS Auto road test report review

The Jaguar XE is without question a bit of a head turner and one of the most attractive and desirable cars in its class. Our test car raises the XE’s game further still with the addition of the R-Sport body kit, discreet R-Sport badging on the air vents on wings and a set of 19in Venom twin-spoke wheels with a black finish which add a further £2,200 to the total invoice.

Mazda MX-5 2.0 Sport Nav road test report and review

THE Mazda MX-5 is the world’s favourite sports car – it is also mine!
