Jaguar unveils the MY2020 XE for international markets

Jaguar has unveiled the new XE for the international markets. The new XE receives a lot of technical and aesthetic updates and picks up quite a few things from its siblings, the I-Pace and the F-Type.

The design and interiors of the Jaguar XE

The new Jaguar XE gets aggressive styling with redesigned bumpers, new LED headlamps and a slender LED tail lamp. Additionally, the vehicle resonates with styling inspired by the sporty F-type.  The influence of the sportscar continues inside as well. This is evident from the SportShift gear selector and JaguarDrive Control switch just like the F-Type. The sedan also features a redesigned centre console adopted from its siblings. Shared with the all-electric I-Pace, the new steering wheel features capacitive switches for intuitive, tactile control of the functions.

Next, the ClearSight mirror, a first-in-segment feature is an interesting technical facet of the new XE. This uses a wide-angle rear-view camera, an HD screen projects the images, providing an unhindered view of the traffic behind. The new XE gets its infotainment system from the I-Pace.

The new XE is available with a choice of Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol is available with 242bhp and 291bhp outputs, badged P250 and P300 respectively, while the 175.2 Ingenium diesel, badged D180, delivers 430Nm of torque. New XE features an automatic transmission as standard and is available in rear and all-wheel-drive variants.

For performance-orientated enthusiasts, Jaguar’s R-Dynamic models include additional exterior design elements and interior tweaks, including sports-style seats with contrast stitching, Satin Chrome gearshift paddles and R-Dynamic treadplates.

There is no official word about the launch of the new Jaguar XE, we expect this car to be available in the country later this year.
