The Jaguar XE may not have been the 3 Series killer that the British automaker wanted it to be, but the luxury sedan is one good looking car and has received its first major upgrade since its launch in 2014. The 2020 Jaguar XE facelift sports visual upgrades to the model, which Jaguar says gives the model a wider and lower appearance with "muscular forms eluding to the car's performance and advanced aerodynamics." The styling changes aren't extensive but have been tastefully done inspired from the F-Type and E-Pace models in the automaker's line-up.
