The Jaguar XE has always been a distinctly designed executive sports saloon that provides exhilarating performance. The new version brings about some enhancements in design, technology and driving dynamics to improve upon the earlier avatar.
For one, it is wider and lower than before, with large front apertures, bold graphics and muscular forms. There are new all-LED headlights with a striking ‘J’ blade daytime running light signature and Animated Directional Indicators. The rear features a new bumper design and slender all-LED tail-lights with updated signature graphics. And the 17″ wheels give it a more planted appearance.
The interior features superior material with extensive use of soft touch surfaces, premium veneers and new door trims to enhance appeal and practicality. The F-TYPE derived Jaguar SportShift selector on the revised centre console is ergonomically designed to facilitate intuitive, rapid manual gear changes of the 8-speed automatic gearbox. A new steering wheel, shared with the all-electric I-PACE, features ‘hidden-until-lit’ graphics and tactile switches for intuitive control of key functions.
The new Jaguar XE gets a 10″ ‘Touch Pro’ infotainment screen with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™as standard. Other highlight features include Smart Settings with AI (Artificial Intelligence) for driver seat, mirror, audio and climate settings, Lane Keep Assist and Driver Condition Monitor, Online Pack (Wi-Fi with Pro Services that adds Real Time Traffic Information, Door-to-Door routing and Estimated Time of Arrival), ‘Remote with InControl Remote App’ that allows one to check vehicle status like fuel level, window open etc. via phone, Connected Navigation Pro navigation system, Wireless Device Charging, Interactive Driver Display with high definition crystal clear graphics to show 3D maps, vehicle settings, contacts and media options, Air Quality Sensor, Park Assist and more.
Designed and engineered to offer agility, responsiveness, aerodynamic efficiency and stability along with refinement, the Jaguar XE features the SportShift selector that offers a sportier shift to the Control toggle switch. It enhances usability, and the lightweight aluminium body structure continues to play a major role in the car’s agile handling, safety and efficiency. Aluminium makes up 75% of the body and combines with proven rear wheel drive system, double wishbone front and integral link rear suspension to offer a superior drive.
