Jaguar XE Saloon
Starting from £28,295
The most advanced, efficient and refined sports saloon car that Jaguar has ever produced. Instantly recognisable as a Jaguar, it feels like a Jaguar, it drives like a Jaguar – XE is a Jaguar to its core.
XE is the foundation of the Jaguar saloon car family. A distillation of the design, luxury and technology found in XF and XJ. Inspired by our F-TYPE sports car, with its assertive looks and agile drive.
XE is an exceptional blend of technology, design, and driving dynamics that rewrites all the rules. XE is a wake up call for every other car in its class.
One glance at XE and you know that it could only be a Jaguar. Only Jaguar, as a world leader in aluminium car construction, has the technology and expertise to create sharper creases from deeper, more innovatively formed pressings. The body side curvature of XE is aerodynamically honed to sweep air seamlessly rearwards to the tail. The deliberately cropped rear has a short overhang, underscoring the car's performance credentials and enhancing airflow. It culminates with those iconic tail lights that are inspired by the F-TYPE sports car.
Connect with XE the moment you slide into the form-hugging seats – you sit low in a Jaguar. Next to you the raised centre console adds to the cockpit feel.
Pulsing with a heartbeat, the car creates an emotional connection between driver and machine. Its 72-per-minute double beat is the same as a jaguar cat at rest. Press the Start button and XE awakes, the needles sweep, the engine growls. On cars with automatic transmission, the JaguarDrive Selector rises to greet your hand.
The outer air vents are unique in the way that they extend the facia to nestle in the door casings and give the feeling of width and space. Throughout XE the natural forms of the interior architecture lend themselves to the extensive choice of contemporary or traditional materials and finishes. XE is an inspired place for driver and passengers to be.

Lightweight Aluminium ArchitectureJaguar has been at the forefront of aluminium car construction for more than a decade and continues to push the boundaries of this technology. XE is based on our Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, which uses expertise derived from the aerospace industry to deliver premium vehicle characteristics in performance and refinement. This immensely strong bodyshell uses a high strength 6000 series aluminium alloy. Saving weight without compromising durability, it provides very high torsional stiffness, supporting precise handling. It helps achieve optimum weight distribution approaching 50:50. The lightweight structure not only reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, it means that the XE range is able to encompass everything from as low as 99g/km to a maximum speed of up to 155mph.
8-speed Automatic TransmissionXE's automatic transmission is highly responsive, smooth and efficient. It delivers rapid shifting for effortless acceleration and overtaking. The intelligent, adaptive system subtly changes the way the throttle delivers power, as well as gearshift patterns, to suit each particular driving circumstance. The JaguarDrive Control offers even quicker shifts and sportier kick-down in Dynamic Mode, and earlier up-shifts in Eco Mode. With the automatic transmission the driver can opt to manually control gearshifts, via steering wheel paddles, at the touch of a finger.
6-speed Manual TransmissionChoose the six-speed manual gearbox (available on 2.0 litre 4-cylinder 163PS and 2.0 litre 4-cylinder 180PS Rear Wheel Drive Turbocharged Ingenium engines) for even greater driver involvement. This lightweight, highly advanced unit contributes to XE's outstanding efficiency. Its aluminium alloy casing, hollow shafts and pocketed gears save every gram of weight possible. We use an advanced direct lubrication system to reduce friction and drag for greater efficiency and further weight saving. Specifically designed for the performance requirements of sports cars – it delivers slick, short changes and superb levels of comfort.
Advanced AerodynamicsXE's form has been rigorously optimised for aerodynamic efficiency and stability. With a drag co-efficient as low as Cd 0.26, XE cuts through the air – reducing fuel consumption and lowering emissions. Every element exploits the exterior's maximum aerodynamic potential while preserving XE's stunning proportions. Vertical apertures in the front bumper's outer edges channel air through vents in the wheel arches and out over the front wheels. Even the race car-inspired underbody protection and diffuser is designed to make XE as efficient, economical and refined as possible.

Jaguar Sound System/Meridian Sound and Surround Sound SystemsXE's superb sound systems bring your music to life. The Jaguar Sound System provides acoustic range through 6 speakers. Offering an enhanced listening experience are the optional Meridian Sound Systems. Designed in conjunction with the British audio experts Meridian, these systems use innovative audio technology and precise speaker placement to give perfectly optimised sound quality.
Choose from a range of audio systems, including the new digital 380W Sound System with 11 speakers or the digital 825W Surround Sound System with 17 speakers. All systems ensure that, wherever you or your passengers sit in your XE, everyone will enjoy a rich, enveloping audio experience.
EfficiencyEveryone wants to do more with less. That is why XE uses a range of technologies to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, all while staying true to Jaguar's dynamic nature.
ADBLUE®XE's diesel models are fitted with AdBlue® to help clean exhaust gases. AdBlue® is a non-toxic, nonflammable, biodegradable additive that cleanses the gases in the car's
exhaust system to remove harmful nitrogen oxide emissions.
LOW CO2The 2.0 litre 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel (163PS) makes use of Jaguar's highly refined and efficient Ingenium powertrain and has aerodynamic additions to the front and underbody areas. It also uses Ultra Low Rolling Resistance tyres to reduce drag between road and tyre as well as lightweight alloy wheels designed for optimised weight. This allows XE to reduce CO2 emissions to as low as 99g/km.
STOP/STARTAll XE's engines are available with Stop/Start. It shuts down the engine when you come to a complete halt and restarts the engine immediately when required to help save fuel, especially during urban driving.
LOW FRICTION TECHNOLOGIESTechnologies such as smart coatings on XE's pistons and needle roller bearings in the Ingenium engine range help to reduce friction, particularly at low engine temperatures. This helps the car perform at its efficient best.
ADVANCED AERODYNAMICSXE can offer an incredibly low drag co-efficient of Cd 0.26. This helps XE cut through the air with ease, meaning less work for the engine and therefore reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
Safety and Efficiency
Reverse Traffic DetectionThis optional feature helps you reverse safely out of a parking space. Sensors detect approaching vehicles from either direction and warnings are audible and displayed on the Touchscreen.
Blind Spot Monitor with Closing Vehicle SensingOptional Closing Vehicle Sensing uses sophisticated sensors to help warn if faster moving vehicles are approaching from behind at a distance of up to approximately 60m. Blind Spot Monitoring is designed to provide an extra alert should the system detect a vehicle entering a pre-defined blind spot.
Bi-Function HID Xenon HeadlightsThese deliver an intense white light for both main and dipped beam in a single unit for improved night vision.
Adaptive Front LightingThis optional system measures the speed of the car and angle of the steering wheel, swivelling the headlights by up to 14 degrees out and up to 7 degrees in, for improved visibility during cornering.
Intelligent High BeamThe optional Intelligent High Beam system automatically switches between low and high beam when necessary, using a sensor mounted at the front of the rear view mirror.
LED Rear LightsLED technology creates the distinctive design of XE's rear lights. They illuminate to full brightness faster than conventional bulbs, giving drivers behind you more time to react.
Pedestrian Contact Sensing SystemHelp protect the people outside your car as well as those inside. If the car makes contact with a pedestrian, our industryleading Pedestrian Contact Sensing system is designed to automatically raise the bonnet to help cushion a potential impact.
Emergency Brake AssistIf the brakes are applied rapidly, this system boosts braking force to the maximum for shorter stopping distances. It can also help retain greater steering control in unexpected situations.
Have had my Jaguar XF a Month now and the driving experience is truly wonderful.Thanks to Craig for his friendly manner and attention to detail regarding my Jaguar XF purchase.
