Jaguar XE Exterior

The Jaguar XE measures 4,795 mm in length, 2,075 mm in width, 1,416 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,835 mm. It is also offered with rain sensing wipers, heated rear screen and chrome surround on the radiator grille. The Jaguar XE is available in seven colour options, Polaris White, Metallic Rhodium Silver, Bluefire, Dark Sapphire, Odyssey Red, Italian Racing Red and Ultimate Black.

Jaguar engineers have concentrated on making the XE leaner and meaner than the XF and probably the best looking entry-level premium sedan in its segment. This is by quite some ways the best looking car in its segment.The muscly shoulder line running across the side adds more to its brawny appearance. It’s not only the face that resembles to XF, but the tail as well like the similar designed taillamps with a missing chrome strip running between the two, as seen on the XF.

Jaguar XE Interior

The cabin welcomes you with a nice beige leather and black dual-tone upholstery. In simple words, the trim level says it all for the owner’s comfort. The portfolio variant boasts a lot of features like Meridian sound system with Jaguar’s 8 inch InControl infotainment system along with navigation function. Another feature that will appeal to your eyes is the gear knob that pops-out as the vehicle starts.

There is no point of doubt when it comes to comfort level of seats. Though, the cabin feels tight at the rear, but you still have adequate amount of knee room to sit relaxed. The transmission tunnel running through the centre console to the rear, makes it comfortable for only two passengers. The 455 litre of boot capacity is less than its rivals, but still this is capable to swallow big suitcases for your weekend getaways.

Want a sporty feel then you can also get your hands on paddle shifters, keep yourself engaged and how about making 100kph in this car from a standstill in a mere 7.8seconds.

Jaguar XE Driving

All Jaguar cars excel in handling and offer a good amount of feedback, though you feel a bit of body roll while pushing it into the corners, but that’s acceptable. Along with agile handling, suspensions are more on the softer side to soak all bumps and potholes at most speeds. The XE displays good stability even at fast speeds and braking performance is consistent and strong. Though, you are familiar with the Jaguar’s driving mode and what else you get is All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) that will hug the surface in slippery conditions.
