What’s New for 2021: Jaguar

The Jaguar lineup gets pared down for 2021, with the discontinuation of the XE compact sport sedan and a continued focus on crossover SUVs. The redesigned F-Pace crossover SUV and refreshed XF mid-size sedan highlight the biggest changes to the lineup.

Historically known for its large sedans swaddled in luxury or lovely sport coupes with questionable reliability, Jaguar follows the trend of mainstream automakers by slimming down its sedan lineup: After last year’s discontinuation of the XJ full-size sedan, and the discontinuation of the XE compact, the XF is the only sedan left.

Jaguar’s historic reputation for powertrain problems has eased in recent years thanks to an excellent warranty, and the glitchy, compartmentalized infotainment system has since become the bane for the British heritage brand.  

A new infotainment system called Pivi Pro promises to smooth out the wrinkles in the user experience caused by its predecessor, and Jaguar maintains its 5-year/60,000-mile warranty and complementary scheduled service to win over shoppers concerned about quality.

Here are the changes for the slimmed down 2021 lineup:
