One of the innovations in creating the design of the Jaguar XE was the fact that it was developed side by side with the modular platform. This allowed an increase of solutions as the design and engineering teams worked side by side.

, which gave rise to modern Jaguar design language. They include the sculpted bonnet, narrow headlamps and "J-Blade" running lights, a long and upward waistline and coupé curvature of the roof.

The XE follows the tradition of shape and function without compromise and has the lowest drag coefficient ever on a Jaguar, with a Cd of just 0.26.

The interior offers high levels of comfort and space. The elegant materials and finishes are combined with Jaguar's traditional quality handcrafted finishes to provide unparalleled in its inner segment.

One new feature in the XE is the infotainment system InControl that offers the latest technology to connect the vehicle to the driver and, simultaneously, to the outside world. The central element of this system is composed of an eight-inch touch screen with an intuitive and clear graphical interface with faster response times.

Chassis and Suspension

The aluminum structure is one of the secret weapons of the Jaguar XE. Most of the aluminum alloy is high strength from the 6000 series.

It is designed to meet the highest international standards of crash tests with the goal of achieving the maximum rating in Euro and US NCAP. Its bonnet with airbag for pedestrians ensures high levels of protection in case of a possible hit.

According to Jaguar the XE has the most sophisticated suspension in its class with the goal of trying to set new class standards when it comes to driving and control.

While the majority of its competitors uses MacPherson strut front suspension, those responsible for the dynamic behavior at Jaguar insisted on the superiority of setting double wishbones. The front axle sleeves of aluminum are as light as and were fabricated using a patented production process.

On the rear suspension Jaguar opted for a less conventional solution using an Integral Link design, a system usually installed in vehicles of higher segments, offering the ideal lateral and longitudinal stiffness values ​​required for accurate and smooth behavior of the XE. The massive use of aluminum allowed to minimize weight.

Jaguar introduced the XE with the sportier version XE S. This version uses a 3.0 V6 Supercharged engine. This engine develops 340hp and 450Nm of torque and sends its power to the wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission equipped with shift paddles on the steering wheel to give the driver instant access to their amazing benefits. With an acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, the XE S reaches an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h.

The model also received the Ingenium engine family. The first of these engines is a 2.0 diesel four-cylinder. This engine has been specially designed to be a reference in terms of consumption, refinement and performance. In addition it meets the most stringent emissions standards internationally.
