If I understand correctly, you wish to compare Jaguar XE Portfolio and Volvo S60 T6 since both belong to same fuel type i.e petrol.

Volvo S60 and Jaguar XE give neck to neck fight to each other in every aspects. Though, the looks are subjective still one cannot deny the fact that Jag looks more sportier and has sharp edges which makes it astonishing.

On paper, both of these are equipped with 2.0 litre petrol engine but Volvo S60 is way ahead in terms of performance as there is a vast difference in the power and torque figures that it delivers - and to be precise, Volvo S60 delivers 68.4 bhp and 60 NM more than that of Jag's. The S60 weighs just 3kg less than the Jag, in-gear response is enthusiastic and at 6.3 sec, it gets to 100 km/hr which is half a second quicker than Jaguar.

Internally, Volvo S60 has an additional advantage as it is equipped with few extra and smart features such as Heated Seats (Front), Heated Seats (Rear), Voice Control, which give it a more premium touch and it becomes even better when it comes to the security with the presence of Anti-Theft Alarm and Side Airbag (Front).

Talking about the ground clearance specifically, Jaguar takes a hit here. It has less ground clearance than S60.

Ultimately, if it's the driving experience that you are after, you should go with the S60, but if that isn't at the top of your priority list, the XE also is definitely a vehicle that is worth checking out.

Rest, it all depends on your driving requirements. Do take a test drive before you make a final call. Moreover, click here to see the detailed comparison between the two.
