New Jaguar XE

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 checks out the revised range with its electrified diesel technology

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 with its mild hybrid diesel tech and improved connectivity 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 this revised XE is available with a choice of next generation Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol unit is available with P250 rear-driven form (250PS) and P300 AWD guise (300PS). The P300 variant accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 5.4 seconds and uses its intelligent all-wheel drive system to good effect in slippery conditions. Most customers though, will probably opt for the single Ingenium diesel variant, now uprated and badged D200, which is rear-driven only, delivers 204PS and makes 60mph in just 5.6s. This D200 variant features the brand's latest mild hybrid engine tech.

Design and Build

The XE has what the brand hopes is an 'assertive' appearance, with advanced all-LED headlights, a wide lattice mesh grille and tail-lights with distinctive LED signatures. In contrast to rivals, there's still only a single saloon body style though. The cabin's been improved in this latest model, primarily with the introduced of the brand's new generation 'Pivi Pro' infotainment system, which operates via a 10-inch central touchscreen and features the potential for over-the-air updates. The 'Pivi Pro' system also has the advantage of being able to offer embedded dual-SIM capability, with two LTE modems enabling the set-up to carry out multiple functions at the same time, such as streaming media and downloading SOTA updates, without compromising performance. This level of connectivity also ensures minimal interruptions caused by coverage blackspots as it roams across network providers for the strongest signal. Plus it's compatible with 'Apple CarPlay'/'Android Auto' smartphone-mirroring. As before, as an option (or as standard with top-spec trim) you can also have a lower 5.5-inch centre stack screen combining two multi-functional LED rotary controllers for intuitive operation of key vehicle functions. And it all works in conjunction with an advanced 12.3-inch HD interactive instrument binnacle display screen which replaces conventional dials. The interior now feels more up-market too, thanks to extensive use of soft-touch materials, a re-designed split-rim steering wheel, an embossed Jaguar Leaper logo on the headrests and a fresh quilt design for the seating. 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. That 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

Prices, which now start at around £30,000, have actually been reduced and look a lot more competitive against segment rivals. The three core trim levels are 'R-Dynamic S', 'R-Dynamic SE' and 'R-Dynamic HSE'. Plus the volume D200 and P250 variants add a base 'S' variant and a top 'R-Dynamic Black' flagship derivative. Even the priciest P300 AWD 'R-Dynamic HSE' derivative costs no more than £40,000. All the usual executive niceties feature across the range - leather upholstery, powered front seats, full-LED headlights, alloy wheels of at least 18-inches in size, a frameless rear view mirror, a 3D surround camera and the latest 'Pivi Pro' infotainment system with its 10-inch centre stack screen. Avoid the 'S' -trim levels and you get an 'Interactive Driver Display' digital instrument binnacle screen too. One nice recently added touch is the enhanced Cabin Air Ionisation system, which improves interior air quality through 'Nanoe' technology; this removes allergens and unpleasant odours. The front seat occupant activates the system simply by pressing a provided 'Purify' button. Safety kit includes autonomous 'Emergency Braking', 'Lane Keep Assist', a 'Driver Condition Monitor' and 'Traffic Sign Recognition' with an 'Adaptive Speed Limiter'.

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 important news with this revised model though, is that its core 204PS 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine now features Jaguar's latest next generation Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology for the first time. This uses a Belt-integrated Starter Generator (BiSG) situated in the engine bay to harvest energy usually lost when slowing and braking, which is then stored in a 48V lithium-ion battery located beneath the rear loadspace. It is able to redeploy the stored energy to assist the engine when accelerating away while also delivering a more refined and responsive stop/start system. What about the WLTP-rated results of all this? Well, you're looking at 57.7mpg on the combined cycle and 128g/km of CO2, which is very class competitive. Plus the D200 is RDE2-compliant, so is tax-optimised. The petrol variants do without the MHEV tech - and it shows a bit. The P250 RWD version delivers 35.5mpg on the combined cycle and 179g/km of CO2. And the P300 AWD variant manages 32.3mpg and 197g/km. 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 mild hybrid 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.
