There are seven engines to choose from in the XE R-Sport – four petrols and three diesels. They’re all 2.0-litres in size but have different amounts of power. If you prefer petrol, your options are engines with 197, 236, 246 or 295bhp. They all have an automatic gearbox as standard and the most powerful (295bhp) also has four-wheel drive. If diesel suits your needs, you can choose from engines with 160, 177 or 236bhp. Some diesels have a manual gearbox but most are automatics and some also have four-wheel drive.
