The Jaquar XE is most advanced, efficient and refined sports saloon car that Jaquar has ever produced. The first of a new generation of cars to be launched on Jaquar’s state-of-the-art, all new Aluminium Intensive Architecture, the lightweight aluminium construction creates an incredibly strong body, as well helping to deliver power with responsive handling and refinement with beautiful design.
Jaquar XE brings together the latest innovation, technology and design. It is packed with systems that empower the driver and enhance the driving experience. Jaquar XE rewrites the rules. Jaquar XE is a wakeup call for every other car in its class.
The Jaquar XE, which production started in April this year, is a four door saloon car, and is the first compact executive Jaguar since the 2009 model year X-Type as well as the first of several Jaguar models to be built using Jaguar's new modular aluminium architecture. This platform allows the Jaguar XE to feature either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configurations, and it is the first car in its segment with an aluminium monocoque structure.
The Jaquar XE is powered by the new Jaguar Land Rover 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine range called Ingenium, as well as a Ford-sourced 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine and the Jaguar AJ-V6 3.0-litre supercharged V6 petrol engine used by the F-Type . The V6 engines features in higher performance variants.
The Ingenium 2.0-litre engine family will come on both petrol and diesel variants and in a range of different power outputs. The 2.0-litre diesel producing 163 PS (120 kW; 161 hp) plays a part in reducing the overall averaged fuel consumption and carbon emission figures of new Jaguars, being capable of beating the 25 km/L barrier, and producing CO2emissions of 99 g/km.
