2018 Jaguar XE

2018 Jaguar XE

Four models of the luxury 2018 Jaguar XE sport sedans exist.  Gorgeous looks always catch the eye when you’re out and about on the road, and it’s so easy to live with the awesome Jaguar luxury interior which is spacious and very comfortable.

Some cool features for the new XE models include the use of immensely strong lightweight Aluminium to save weight and help achieve optimum weight distribution approaching the magical 50:50 ratio.  The car comes with Jaguar’s Torque Vectoring which, by braking, maximises control through even the tightest corners.  The XE offers sports car-like agility and added driver confidence.  All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) enhances the car’s abilities in low traction situations, and there are both RWD and AWD models available.  Combine all these things with the XE’s sophisticated front and rear suspension systems and you have yourself a very rewarding sedan.  Advanced damper technologies – both passive and adaptive – improve ride quality and extend the XE’s breadth of dynamic control and agility.

Your new Jaguar XE can come equipped with the latest optional ‘Dynamics’ system which allows you to set up the XE’s chassis damping, throttle mapping, gearbox shift points and steering to suit your performance tastes and requirements.  The car offers Jaguar’s Drive Control system which allows you to select Normal, Eco, Dynamic or Rain Ice Snow modes.

But you have got to love the looks!  A 2018 Jaguar XE sedan is a beautiful car and both the exterior and interior are classy, well-crafted attractive designs.  The sculpted bonnet sweeps back from distinctive “‘J’ blade headlights” – channelling air over and around the body and minimising air resistance.  Side-on the new XE is crouching and ready to pounce.  A very low 0.28 drag coefficient sets new standards in both looks and aerodynamic function.  Taking its design cues from the sporty F-TYPE, the Jaguar XE’s iconic tail lights feature a distinctive roundel intersected by a horizontal line.  Inside, you’ll find that you’re cosseted in leather upholstery sourced from the finest hide suppliers in the UK and Italy.  You really do feel very special in any 2018 Jaguar XE model.  Twin needle leather stitching not only enhances durability, but is offered in contrasting colours that define XE’s luxury interior.  Sleek modern veneers along with high quality cloths and leathers are available to complement the range of colour themes; so there is plenty of personal choice across the four model trims.

At the heart of the 2018 Jaguar XE sedan is a competent command centre.  The 8-inch touchscreen with intuitive touch and swipe controls provides you with a full command over many special features including audio, climate and satellite navigation.  The optional ‘Touch Pro’ system provides a larger 10.2-inch touchscreen with lightning fast response times, predictive navigation, natural dialogue interaction, and 10GB of on-board storage space dedicated to media storage.

Driver’s get to enjoy one of the flashiest Virtual Instrument Displays in the luxury car world, with the XE’s high-definition 12.3-inch digital display being very nice indeed.  You can choose from four pre-set display themes, or a full 3D Map View, to suit your personal preference. Jaguar XE sedans offer a Wi-Fi Hotspot that provides in-car access to the internet, enabling up to eight wireless devices to be used simultaneously.  An optional Head-Up Display, and a range of advanced audio systems are available.

Some of the safety features for the 2018 Jaguar XE sedan include: Blind Spot monitoring, reverse traffic detection, park assist, a surround camera system that gives you a 360 degree exterior vision on the touchscreen display, forward collision warning, autonomous braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, and an adaptive cruise control package.  The Jaguar XE 2.0 diesel ‘Prestige’ was tested in the Euroncap crash safety tests, and the XE was awarded the full five stars.  There are belt pre-tensioners and load limiters front and rear.  A full array of front side and curtain airbags which help to cocoon occupants inside the new XE cabin in the event of a serious accident.  An Active Bonnet (Hood) protects pedestrians should the unlikely event of a pedestrian collision occur.  There is also ESC, ABS and TSC standard on all models along with afore mentioned emergency braking systems that are stratified into AEB City and AEB Inter-Urban.  You certainly can rest assured that you are travelling in a very safe medium-to-large size luxury/sport sedan.

The 2018 Jaguar XE range kicks off with the Prestige.  This model offers features that include: 18-inch six-spoke alloys, grained leather seats (10-way electronically adjustable), dark satin brushed aluminium trim, a soft grain leather sport steering wheel, Bi-function Xenon headlights and metal tread plates with a Jaguar script.

Next comes the Jaguar XE Portfolio which adds to the Prestige with features that include: 18-inch seven split-spoke alloys, perforated windsor leather seats and embossed aluminium trimmings.

Opt for the Jaguar XE R-SPORT, and the flavours get racier.  An assertive sporting tone comes with a sports body kit for the exterior and sport seats with eight-way adjustable sport seats for the interior.  Special features include: 18-inch five spoke alloys, Luxtec and Technical Mesh sport seats that are 10-way electronically adjustable, an R-Sport branded soft grain leather steering wheel, a spunky black radiator grille with a satin chrome surround, etched aluminium trimmings and an R-Sport bodykit.

Maximising the sport flavour in the luxury/sports XE is the Jaguar XE S model.  Not only do you get a 3.0-litre V6 280 kW supercharged engine, but you also get: 19-inch five split-spoke alloys, grained leather and suede-cloth sport seats with contrast stitching, an S branded soft grain leather steering wheel, and meshed aluminium trimmings.

This is definitely a definitive luxury/sports sedan that makes a big impression on the styling and performance fronts.
