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.

The new Jaguar XE is a Jaguar Saloon for you, and a Jaguar for your family, contact us here at Sinclair Jaguar in Swansea to find out more and book a test drive.

Jaguar's XE is much improved. Jonathan Crouch drives the volume D180 diesel version.

Ten Second Review

The Jaguar XE continues to deliver a slickly executed take on the mid-sized executive genre, offering something different to the usual German suspects in the BMW 3 Series / Audi A4-segment. On paper at least, this revised version seems to have the design, technology and ambition necessary to succeed in this segment, with the dynamics of a BMW and the luxury of a Mercedes, plus all the efficiency and connectivity modern business buyers now expect. It's a strong contender.

Background

Think Jaguar and you probably think of unashamedly high-end cars, raffish, elegant and rapid. It's not a company that's given to lowering the bar and chasing volumes. It tried that in 2001 with the dismal X-TYPE, a rebodied Ford Mondeo that languished in the range for eight years, the public never really enamoured by a Ford wearing a pastiche of Jaguar styling. In its best-selling year, it sold half of Jaguar's initial 100,000 per year estimate, the Brits grumbling that here was a car they never wanted, hastily foisted on them by Ford's top brass in Detroit. It's took Browns Lane until 2014 to come back with a second stab at the mid-sized 3 Series / Audi A4-dominated executive saloon sector, but the XE showed that the brand had learned from the X-TYPE and done things rather differently. It was - and still is in this improved form - a serious contender to the likes of the BMW 3 Series, the Audi A4 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Driving Experience

When you compete in the same class as the BMW 3 Series, it's a measure of real confidence to bill your contender as "the driver's car in the global mid-size saloon segment". Yet that's exactly what Jaguar has done and a closer look at the XE reveals the reasons behind their bullishness. The chassis is a 75 per cent aluminium monocoque, light but immensely strong. The design utilises a classically correct longitudinal engine and rear-wheel drive architecture. Jaguar reckons that this XE has the best electric power steering in class and there are plenty of chassis goodies like torque vectoring by braking. Automatic transmission is now non-negotiable and the car continues to be available in rear and all-wheel-drive variants. Jaguar's advanced torque on-demand all-wheel drive (AWD) system and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics technology maintain the XE's rear-wheel drive handling feel and agility while improving performance, traction and driver confidence. This revised XE, as ever, is available with a choice of Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol is available with 250PS and 300PS outputs, badged P250 and P300 respectively. The 300 PS petrol engine, equipped with all-wheel drive, accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.7 seconds). While the efficient 180PS Ingenium diesel, badged D180, delivers 430Nm of torque and decent pulling power.

Design and Build

Jaguar has lightly updated the look of this XE to give it what the brand hopes is a 'more assertive' appearance, with smarter front and rear bumpers, advanced all-LED headlights and tail-lights with distinctive LED signatures. The cabin's much improved too, with the twin 'Touch Pro Duo' infotainment system centre-dash screens from bigger Jaguar models making an appearance on upper-spec XE models, along with a 12.3-inch interactive driver display to replace conventional dials in the instrument binnacle. The interior now feels more up-market too, thanks to extensive use of soft-touch materials, premium veneers and new door trims that improve usability and practicality. Jaguar claims that every aspect of the cabin has been enhanced for increased convenience, improved stowage and better passenger comfort. The first-in-segment ClearSight interior rear view mirror improves safety and convenience by ensuring the driver has an unobstructed view of the road behind. Using a wide-angle rear-facing camera, the system feeds images to a high-definition screen within the frameless rear view mirror; unhindered by tall rear passengers, poor light or rain on the rear screen. A revised steering wheel, shared with the all-electric I-PACE, features hidden-until-lit graphics and capacitive switches for intuitive, tactile control of key functions. As before, space in the rear is fairly tight. And there's a 450-litre boot. The rear seats can be optionally heated and offer a 40:20:40 split-fold and a through-loading feature.

Market and Model

Jaguar's taken a scythe to the XE range, slimming it down to the models that sold in reasonable numbers the first time round and deleting versions that didn't. As before, there's only a single saloon body shape and the brand's 8-speed ZF auto gearbox is now mandatory. D180 prices start at around £35,000. XE buyers will be choosing between three levels of trim - 'S', 'SE' or, as here, 'HSE'. Whichever you prefer, your dealer will then give you the option of specifying your car with an optional sporty 'R-Dynamic' pack for around £1,600 more. To give you a perspective on the value proposition, let's take as an example what will probably be the line-up's strongest seller, a D180 'S'-spec variant fitted with that 'R-Dynamic' pack, a car that at the launch of this revised XE line-up would set you back just over £36,000. Jaguar's keen to point out this version's list price to be £670 less than a directly comparable D180 'R-Sport' variant in the pre-facelifted range, despite the fact that over £1,100-worth of extra equipment has been added to this revised design. That's a customer saving of £1,770.

Cost of Ownership

As before, it helps the XE's cause that its structure is relatively light weight, thanks to the fact that over 75% of the structure of the car is fashioned from aluminium. The efficient 180PS Ingenium diesel, badged D180, is the engine most XE buyers will choose and it delivers combined fuel consumption of up to 57.6mpg (WLTP-rated, converted to NEDC2). The XE D180 RWD model has been optimised for certification as RDE2-compliant in a segment-first move by the brand. For company car buyers, RDE2-compliant diesels don't attract a 4% supplement to the Benefit-in-Kind tax, offering substantial savings.Jaguar's latest diesel engines have approximately 25% better fuel economy than petrol engines, produce around 15% less CO2 and emit around the same amount of NOx. For drivers that travel more than 12,000 miles a year, a diesel engine is often the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly choice. What else? You get the usual unremarkable three year warranty. And service intervals are set at 21,000miles or every 24 months, whichever comes first and it would be sensible to consider one of Jaguar's Service Plans that cover you for virtually everything in advance. There's a 'Standard Mileage Service Plan' that covers you for five years/50,000 miles. Or a 'High Mileage Service Plan' that covers five years/75,000 miles.

Summary

Bold, innovative, forward-thinking and able to level with the class best, this XE has proved to be the most credible Jaguar sports saloon we've seen since the Sixties. It chases bigger sales but unlike some of its predecessors, hasn't diluted crucial elements of brand credibility. On the contrary, it's a model company founder Sir William Lyons might have been proud of. He sought to make cars that made their owners feel 'alive' and the objective of this one is exactly that. Failings are few. Yes, buyers will lack a little when it comes to boot space and some may find selected areas of the styling approach to be slightly conservative. There's nothing wrong with the fundamentals of this design though and the aluminium underpinnings that lie beneath that taut bodywork are pretty sophisticated. Potential business buyers will also note that in important areas like safety, connectivity and residual values, this car is difficult to better in its class, plus they'll also struggle to improve upon this model's diesel efficiency figures, thanks to Jaguar's impressively clean and frugal Ingenium technology. Yes, there's tough competition in the BMW 3 Series-sector. But this improved XE looks better set to size up to it.
