Jaguar has revealed its new XE model at the Paris Motor Show, today.
The all-new XE, Jaguar’s smallest, lightest and stiffest saloon, promises to come well equipped with a hue of technology as standard.
It is available with a choice of five engine options; three petrol and two diesel variants – a 3.0- litre V6 Petrol, producing a massive 335bhp, two 2.0-litre petrol units; 197bhp or 236bhp and two 2-litre diesel options with 177bhp or 160bhp.
Technology features include a new InControl infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen, the world debut of Jaguar’s all surface progress control – a revolutionary system that maximises low-speed traction in adverse conditions, drive control with eco, normal, winter and dynamic modes, adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring with closing vehicle sensing.
The addition of forward facing stereo camera technology enables autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition.
Kevin Stride vehicle line director for the Jaguar XE said: "The XE's driving behaviour fully matches the promise of its seductive looks, and the emotional appeal is supported by state of-the-art approaches to efficiency, from aerodynamics to the advanced Ingenium engine family."
Jaguar director of design Ian Callum said: "Great proportions and a dynamic, edgy feel are at the core of Jaguar design. We wanted to create a strong sense of movement, and have given the XE a dynamic and purposeful look that is without compromise. Sleek, low, coupé-like exterior proportions combine with an efficient package that is instantly recognisable as a true Jaguar."
The new XE is available to buy now with pricing starting from £26,995.
