Jaguar XE, Full Details & Engine Specifications

JAGUAR_XE_PORTFOLIO_DETAIL_01

The Jaguar XE redefines the concept of the sports saloon and will be the driver’s car in its class. Its lightweight construction, streamlined styling, luxurious interior and outstanding ride and handling are testament to company founder Sir William Lyons’ vision: ‘The car is the closest thing we will ever create to something that is alive’

The rear-drive XE is the only vehicle in its class to use an aluminium-intensive monocoque. This extremely robust yet light structure, together with double wishbone front suspension and an Integral Link rear axle, is fundamental to the XE’s innovative benchmark vehicle dynamics.

Jaguar’s world-leading expertise in aluminium structure engineering enables exceptional fuel consumption and emissions figures: with the new Ingenium diesel engines, the XE can achieve 75mpg and 99g/km CO2 – the most efficient Jaguar ever.

Powered by the supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine from the acclaimed Jaguar F-TYPE, the XE S is capable of 0-60mph in just 4.9 seconds.

“The XE’s driving behaviour fully matches the promise of its seductive looks, and the emotional appeal is supported by state of-the-art approaches to efficiency, from aerodynamics to the advanced Ingenium engine family.” Kevin Stride, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar XE.

The aluminium-intensive Jaguar XE is the first model developed from Jaguar Land Rover’s new modular vehicle architecture. The long 2,835mm wheelbase and low seating position enable perfect proportions and a streamlined profile.

The cabin offers outstanding levels of comfort and spaciousness. Exquisite materials and finishes combined with Jaguar craftsmanship make this a class-beating interior that’s unlike anything else in the segment. Jaguar’s new InControl Touch infotainment system takes centre stage: its innovative 8-inch touchscreen brings fast, intuitive access to all features and functions – and iOS and Android smartphone apps.

The XE has some of the most advanced driver assistance systems available. All Surface Progress Control (ASPC), developed through decades of Jaguar Land Rover experience in off-road traction systems, can electronically gain traction in seconds and is ideal for use on low-grip surfaces, such as snow-covered roads. Laser projection technology enables the XE’s head-up display (HUD) to generate sharp, high-contrast colour graphics (such as vehicle speed and navigation) from a module smaller and almost a third lighter than existing systems, retaining clarity even in direct sunlight.

A stereo camera is mounted behind the front windscreen to give the XE a 3D view of the road ahead: this highly accurate data is used for functions including autonomous emergency braking and a lane departure warning system.

The XE is the stiffest, most aerodynamic Jaguar saloon car ever built. It is also the first Jaguar to be equipped with electric power steering, tuned to provide exceptional responsiveness and feel but with lower energy consumption than hydraulic systems. The XE also boasts the lowest cost of ownership and most environmentally sustainable credentials of all Jaguar models.

Manufacturing of the aluminium-intensive Jaguar XE occurs at Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull plant in an all-new facility. Part of a £1.5bn investment, this flexible, purpose-built site will create 1,700 UK jobs. The XE now completes the Jaguar saloon car range, sitting below the XF and XJ model lines.

The XE range. From luxurious to high-performance, the XE range offers a model perfectly suited to every taste

Sports saloons tailored to suit every driver

Each XE is designed to offer an unrivalled combination of steering response, ride comfort, refinement and performance. These attributes are matched to the sleek, perfectly-proportioned exterior styling and the premium materials and meticulous attention to detail defining the interior.

JAGUAR_XE_PORTFOLIO_INT_04

Pure: The entry-level to the XE range, the Pure* model features high-quality cloth seats and a gloss black treatment for the door trim finishers and the signature ‘Riva Hoop’ sweeping around the instrument panel.

R-Sport: Seats are trimmed with Taurus leather with unique technical mesh fabric inserts. The ‘Riva Hoop’ and door finishers are in etched aluminium, and the tread plates and sports steering wheel feature R-Sport branding. The exterior is enhanced by a subtle rear spoiler and a noble chrome treatment for the side power vents. sports suspension delivers even better handling.

S: The most performance-orientated XE model features a race-inspired interior. The Taurus leather seats have suede cloth panels and the tread plates and leather sports steering wheel carry the S logo. Dark hex aluminium graces the door finishers and the ‘Riva Hoop’, while the centre console is gloss black. The front bumper’s enlarged air intakes hint at the performance potential of the supercharged V6. Side sill extensions, rear spoiler, gloss black rear valance, red brake calipers and optional forged, 20-inch ‘Propeller’ alloy wheels complete the package.

Prestige: Taurus leather upholstery with contrasting stitching delivers a modern, progressive luxury interior, complete with phosphor blue ambient lighting. Inserts on the air-conditioned seat option are perforated and the ‘Riva Hoop’ and door finishers are finished in brushed aluminium.

Portfolio: The most luxurious XE model, Portfolio features a wide range of colour options for the premium Windsor leather with herringbone perforations. The instrument panel features split upper and lower coverings in two colours, complete with colour-keyed twin-needle stitching for a truly bespoke feel. The aluminium trim has an embossed surface finish.

Design. The most advanced sports saloon that Jaguar has produced, the new XE is instantly recognisable as a Jaguar, its aluminium skin formed around the fundamental principles of perfect proportions and aerodynamic efficiency. The new XE looks and feels like no other car in its class. Purity and purpose: Form and function without compromise

JAGUAR_XE_PRESTIGE_01.1

Always at the forefront of innovation, Jaguar created the blueprint for the first ever sports saloon with the iconic Mk II, a car which distilled sports car performance and dynamics into a stylish four-door body. The new XE builds on this unique heritage, combining Jaguar’s unrivalled expertise in lightweight construction with exquisite lines, sharp radii and perfectly executed surfaces.

JAGUAR_XE_PRESTIGE_01

The only car in its class to use an aluminium-intensive monocoque, the XE was developed in parallel with Jaguar’s lightweight, modular vehicle architecture. Created from a clean sheet, this architecture – which will form the backbone of several future Jaguar models – unlocks entirely new design possibilities for the brand.

JAGUAR_XE_PRESTIGE_02.1

“Great proportions and a dynamic, edgy feel are at the core of Jaguar design. We wanted to create a strong sense of movement, and have given the XE a dynamic and purposeful look that is without compromise. Sleek, low, coupe-like exterior proportions combine with an efficient package that is instantly recognisable as
a true Jaguar.” 
Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design

The strongly-sculpted bonnet is a testament to Jaguar’s expertise in working with aluminium, creating a taut, muscular appearance. The very steeply raked windscreen and the rising waistline accentuate the streamlined, coupe-like profile, adding to the sense of movement. The signature ‘J-Blade’ running lights are another instantly recognisable Jaguar design. In the rear lights, a horizontal line intersecting a roundel is an iconic styling feature inherited from the iconic Jaguar E-type.

Smooth progress: Sleek styling, low aerodynamic drag

Jaguar has a rich history of designing stunning, yet aerodynamically efficient cars. The new XE continues this tradition of uncompromised form and function: its profile has the lowest drag coefficient of any Jaguar yet – Cd 0.26. This was achieved through a combination of over 1,200 computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations and over eight million hours of processor time. The body’s low-drag shape is enhanced by features that amplify each improvement made. Innovations include front bumper ducts which channel laminar airflow over the surface of the front wheels to reduce drag. This is combined with lightweight under-floor panels running back to the rear silencer, creating an almost perfectly smooth surface, also significantly reducing drag.

Inside story: Spacious, luxurious

Expectations raised by the XE’s beautiful exterior styling are exceeded once inside. The spacious cabin cocoons front seat passengers with a deep centre console, creating a cockpit-like feel. The 8-inch touchscreen for the new InControl Touch infotainment system takes centre stage in the sweeping curves of the instrument panel. On models equipped with automatic transmissions, Jaguar’s unique rotary drive selector rises up from the centre console – the XE feels alive.

JAGUAR_XE_PRESTIGE_INT_02

The contour-hugging front seats are mounted low, creating a sports-car like driving position with heating and cooling options and up to14-way power adjustment. The rear seats may also be heated and can offer a 40:20:40 split-fold – a first for Jaguar – and a through-loading feature.

JAGUAR_XE_PRESTIGE_DETAIL_05

The XE proves that sleek, streamlined styling and interior space need not be mutually exclusive. All occupants enjoy generous amounts of head and legroom, and the deeply scalloped seatbacks liberate even more space for passengers seated in the rear of the XE.

JAGUAR_XE_PRESTIGE_INT_01

Technical fabrics, fine-grain leathers and contrasting twin-needle stitching give the cabin a bespoke quality. Gloss black, textured aluminium, contemporary wood veneers, and carbon-fibre trim enhance a luxurious, handcrafted feel.
