Currently reading: Autocar's most popular reviews of the week
The all-new Jaguar XE is the most popular review on this week

Jaguar's XE has once again topped the list of the most viewed reviews on Autocar for the week ending 21 June. Read below to find out what joined it in the top five.

1 - Jaguar XE

The compact executive saloon from Jaguar spearheads our list of the most popular reviews for the second time in as many months.

When we tested a pre-production version of the XE 2.0 diesel R-Sport back in January, it showed a lot of potential. However, according to our tester this finished version is even more refined.

The Jaguar XE has a fierce battle on its hands in the compact executive segment. Audi's new A4 saloon arrives later this year, while a facelifted version of the BMW 3 Series goes on sale this month to combat the Jaguar XE's impressive driving dynamics and the Mercedes-Benz C Class' sumptuous interior.

2 - Maserati Ghibli Diesel

A strong showing by the flamboyant Italian car firm's 2016 model year Ghibli, after going live on just over a week ago.

It's not hard to figure out why the Ghibli ranks so highly. Launched back in 2013, the predecessor was the marque's most rounded model, while still radiating a wonderful sense of occasion.

Despite being let down by a gruff diesel motor and a stiff ride, it was a refreshing choice for those seeking an alternative to a BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E Class.

This revised 2016 Ghibli promises increased refinement, a more opulent cabin and better driving dynamics.

3 - Volvo XC90

Volvo's all-new XC90 has been hovering around our top five reviews list for a handful of weeks now, proving very popular with Autocar's online contingent. 

The seven-seater SUV has big shoes to fill, after the first generation Volvo XC90 was a huge success - it was the Swedish manufacturer's biggest-selling car globally during its 12-year production cycle.

This second-generation XC90 has a tough battle on its hands in the large SUV segment, which includes the BMW X5 and Land Rover Discovery.

4 - Audi RS3 Sportback

Hot hatchbacks are always a hot topic of conversation among our readers, as they offer arguably the greatest bang for your buck with everyday usability.

Modern day hot hatches like the Volkswagen Golf R, Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG and BMW M135i now offer eye-popping levels of performance that used to be the preserve of supercars with exotic badges.

Car review

The Jaguar XJ is a thoroughly modern luxury saloon, and a brilliantly capable one

Back to top

The new Audi RS3 is powered by a 2.5-litre turbocharged five cylinder engine, which pumps out 362bhp and 343lb ft of torque. Cracking 0-60mph in 4.1sec, it's now the quickest hot hatch on the market, too.

5 - Dacia Duster

The compact crossover from Dacia continues to star on our most popular reviews list, having appeared in our top five run-down on multiple occasions.

Dacia's Duster has been a source of controversy ever since it was launched back in 2010. However, the robust Duster has a lot going for it, including a seriously cheap price tag, frugal range of engines and a spacious cabin.

Well, in a lack of road tests, I guess this is an another way of keeping a Jaguar product on the front page...
