It is based on Jaguar’s light-weight Aluminum Architecture and is mated to a 8-Speed Automatic Transmission. Saving weight without compromising durability, XE’s immensely strong Lightweight Aluminium Architecture helps achieve optimum weight distribution of approaching 50:50. With a drag co-efficient as low as Cd. 0.26, XE cuts through the air to improve efficiency and refinement. Other features on the include all Surface Progress Control, Meridian Sound System (380 W), Sliding Panoramic Sunroof and 8-inch touch screen infotainment System.

Jaguar Drive Control allows you to select Normal, Eco, Dynamic or Rain Ice Snow modes, each subtly changing the steering and throttle mapping. Eco mode encourages fuel efficient driving while Dynamic mode sharpens the throttle response and increases steering weighting. By selecting Rain Ice Snow mode, the system automatically dampens acceleration and applies more gradual traction for slippery conditions.

It is available in three variants – Pure, Prestige and Portfolio.
