    It takes everything you throw at it, and calmly rolls up its double-cuffed sleeves and gets on with it. We drove two XEs. One of my indelible childhood memories is that of our neighbour, Gerry Bourdillon. But now Jaguar has come along to disrupt the equilibrium with the lovely XE saloon.

    In this game of ours we can't help forming an opinion of a car before we've driven it. We do that based on how it looks, how the spec shapes up, and even, to a degree, the opinions of some trusted friends and journalists. All of whom have raved about the new Jaguar XE and its star qualities. The XE is up on a pedestal from the off, then. But there's also that age-old saying: They'll always disappoint you. Is the same true with cars? We wonder whether the new Jaguar XE could be a case-in-point, or are the raving critics right?

    We had a week to find out with the Jaguar XE, but in its go-faster R-sport trim, mixed with the lower power output 2. A good test of a car today is its ability to make you feel at home; for it to be intuitive to use and give you confidence behind the wheel despite any unfamiliarity. With that in mind we collected the XE while out at another event, some miles from home and, therefore, with about 4 hours for it to make a good first impression.

    It got off to a good start. There's little worse than rush hour London traffic. But with the satnav fired up, a full tank of diesel and an 8-speed automatic gearbox the XE is the sort of car that should make a decent fist of tedious stop-start traffic. The hour we predictably spend getting out of central London does little to help us form a driving impression, but provides useful time to drink in the XE's interior and get to know its new infotainment system.

    This comes in two versions: InControl Touch as tested here with an 8-inch touch screen and a largely analogue gauge cluster; and InControl Touch Pro, with a inch touch screen and, oh, the same cluster.

    But the XE's denied that and sticks with the analogue setup regardless of what screen size you choose. Given that we've repeatedly lambasted JLR's old touchscreen interface, we were looking forward to trying InControl. And it's fair to say it's a massive step forward. It's mostly easy-to-use and we like the use of colour within the user interface, which helps when moving between satnav, phone, media and car.

    On most screens the buttons are much bigger and easier to hit than before and it's quicker to respond than before and feels more accurate, partly because the screen is capacitive, multitouch technology. The navigation system is easy to enter full UK postcodes into, and you can control most things from the steering wheel.

    The display has an x pixel resolution, which is about the standard for this class now, but move up to InControl Touch Pro and you jump to a decent x besting the Audi A4's MMI Navigation Plus, which runs x px. The processor on this lower-level system must be quite low-spec as there's definite lag when moving between screen menus.

    And on some screens the graphics get a bit busy and child-like which doesn't fit the premium vibe. The information display in the cluster is still limited in what it shows, and bears the graphics that JLR has had for a long time, so feels like it's from a different era to the main screen. Overall, however, the new InControl system is a big and welcome step forward. More importantly, the system from our test car comes as standard. But these two competitors cost you at least a grand. One option our test car came with, which we'd suggest you skip, is the head-up display HUD.

    This is a new, laser-based system which projects direct onto the windscreen rather than a secondary pop-up screen. However, we found the display quality mediocre, and the data — it shows speed, speed limit, gear and sat-nav turn-by-turns — too crammed together. Most annoyingly, we found when driving swiftly that the nav turn arrow — which progressively fills itself in as you approach the actual turn — just didn't keep up with our real-world turns.
