To create a four-door saloon which is as fun to drive as a sports car is no mean feat, but the new Jaguar XE meets that challenge with ease. Inspired by the fabulous Jaguar F-TYPE, the XE is bursting with automotive innovations and technology, rewriting the convention of how a compact saloon car should behave while remaining the embodiment of everything that Jaguar is famous for; extraordinary sporting saloons oozing with style, performance, precision engineering and a sense of excitement - Get behind the wheel of the Jaguar XE and you feel like you're sat in a sports car, comfortably cocooned by its wraparound dashboard and soft grain leather steering wheel.
Performance - The beating heart of every Jaguar XE is a powerful, British-built, Turbocharged Petrol or Diesel engine. All engines are constructed of lightweight aluminium alloy which combined with advanced low-friction technologies delivers a refined, efficient and engaging driving experience.
Choose Petrol or Diesel Ingenium engines designed for clean and efficient combustion and all equipped with Stop/Start technology, there are pros and cons with both, but ultimately, the engine you choose depends upon how you intend to use your car - Diesel engines offer better fuel economy over longer distances and more torque, which makes them ideal for longer journeys, motorway cruising or towing. Because the new diesels are technologically advanced, they're now as clean as petrol engines and give out around 20% less CO₂.
Petrol engines tend to be more powerful and higher revving, resulting in a more engaging and sporty driving experience, and being more refined are better suited to shorter, stop-start journeys.
Handling - Nothing quite matches the sensation of being in a Jaguar XE on an open road when you're reminded that driving can still be genuinely exhilarating. JaguarDrive Control allows you to select from Comfort, Eco, Dynamic, Rain, Ice or Snow Mode - Each mode has its own programme which alters engine & transmission response, steering feel, parasitic load management or traction and stability control. The optional Adaptive Dynamics system makes for further improved ride comfort and dynamic body control using continuously variable damping technology. The system monitors multiple sensors that analyse vertical wheel positions, vehicle acceleration, steering inputs, as well as throttle and brake pedal activity to adjust the suspension damping settings. This provides a near-perfect balance of comfort, refinement and agility.
Interior Space - A refreshed cockpit-style interior offers outstanding levels of comfort, and the raised centre console adds to its sportiness. Everything in the XE revolves around you and was conceived with you in mind, with the SportShift Selector, JaguarDrive Control and Touch Pro Duo central to its seamless design. So, when you settle into that plush leather seat, you connect with the car straight away. Just reach for the pulsing start button – a more engaging driving experience awaits.
Technology – Remaining in touch with the rest of the world when you're driving is vital these day’s and that's why the Jaguar XE is loaded with a suite of integrated technologies as standard, keeping you connected, informed and entertained while on the move - The high-definition 10" Touch Pro home screen gives all the help and information you need, when you need it. There's an interactive side panel for multitasking, together with access to your own music library and a voice recognition system for hands-free requests such as "call home" or "find nearest petrol station"!
Touch Pro Duo1 is an innovative twin-screen system, providing a 10" upper Touchscreen and 5.5" lower Touchscreen to allow dual-tasking, for example, navigation mapping on the upper screen and climate controls and access to other features on the lower screen - Interactive Driver Display2 uses high-definition, crystal-clear graphics to show 3D maps, vehicle settings, contacts and media options.
Remote allows you to interact with your XE from anywhere with a data connection via the InControl Remote app. See your car's data remotely – from fuel levels to door and window status. Set the perfect cabin temperature in advance or find your car quickly in a crowded car park. The Smartphone Pack includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, perfect for mobile phone screen sharing, and makes it easy to use an interactive set of apps through XE's Touch Pro system. It helps you to stay connected to your smartphone whilst in the car and you can use compatible apps such as Spotify. Plus, you can recharge your phone by simply resting it on the optional wireless device charger in front of the SportShift Selector.
