Jaguar XE gets a raft of updates

Jaguar updates XE with more tech and sharper looks to bring the saloon up to date

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Executivecondominium?

Jaguar has announced a raft of changes to its XE saloon ahead of next week’s Geneva motor show.

Not only does the updated Jaguar XE feature more on-board technology and refreshed looks, but Jaguar has also sharpened its pricing to try and revive sales – with on-road prices now starting at less than £34,000.

Even base-spec XE models now boast a host of standard equipment, including 18-inch alloy wheels, electrically-adjustable leather seats and front and rear parking sensors.

The exterior has been given refreshed front and rear bumpers, along with all-LED headlights with distinctive signatures. Larger front intakes help to make the XE look wider and more aggressive, too.

Inside, the XE receives Jaguar’s latest Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, shared with the new I-Pace electric model. While they were at it, Jaguar designers also nicked the steering wheel from the I-Pace as well.

 

The XE also gets a ClearSight interior rear-view mirror. This uses a rear-facing camera to display images onto a screen within the rear-view mirror itself, giving the driver an unobstructed view of the area behind, rather than having the view blocked by back-seat passengers or a dirty rear windscreen.

The car’s range of petrol and diesel engines remain unchanged, although the diesel D180 rear-wheel drive version has been homologated to meet tougher 2021 emissions standards. That also means company car drivers enjoy a 4% BIK rate cut and private retail buyers save on their first-year road tax bill.

An eight-speed automatic gearbox is now standard-fit on all models, with the manual gearbox being consigned to history.

Jaguar claims to be building much better value into the XE than previously offered, with both price reductions and increased specification across the board. For example, the XE D180 R-Dynamic S model is priced at £36,145 on-road, which is £670 cheaper than the equivalent model previously but features £1,100 worth of extra kit.

The updated Jaguar XE is available to order from your friendly neighbourhood Jaguar dealer right now.
