FEATURES & OPTIONS
From its iron-grip when cornering to its immaculate poise on all roads, XE’s precision engineered chassis and advanced driving dynamic systems deliver outstanding sports performance in constantly changing conditions. XE possesses the lightest body in its class and has sports car equivalent body stiffness of 22kNm/deg.
XE’s next generation Electric Powered Assisted Steering (EPAS) offers outstanding feedback and control, as well as power assistance the moment you need it. The system adds to driver confidence by communicating the approach of the limits of grip during hard cornering. Only active on demand – saving power for where you really need it, as well as saving fuel – EPAS allows highly-tuned computer control to adapt the levels of steering support; whether giving you fine control at speed, or providing comprehensive assistance during slow manoeuvring.
Adaptive Dynamics instinctively modifies XE’s response to conditions and your driving style. It analyses acceleration and braking, cornering, throttle and brake pedal activity.
Standard on S models only. Not available on SE models or 163PS engines.
XE’s next generation braking system is optimised for high performance and to save weight. Air deflectors fitted to the front suspension efficiently channel air to cool the brakes and reduce the risk of fade during enthusiastic driving. While new technology in the pads reduces dust to improve stability, increase disc life and maintain the clean appearance of the wheels.
JaguarDrive Control allows you to select Standard, Eco, Dynamic or Winter modes, each subtly changing the steering and throttle mapping. Eco mode encourages fuel efficient driving offering gear change information and fuel economy feedback. Dynamic mode sharpens the throttle response and increases steering weighting. On automatic transmissions, Dynamic mode performs gear shifts more quickly and at higher engine speeds. By selecting Winter mode, the system automatically dampens acceleration and applies more gradual traction for slippery conditions.
XE’s Torque Vectoring by Braking maximises control through the tightest corners. Torque Vectoring technology provides controlled braking on the inside rear wheel delivering outstanding sports car agility and added driver confidence.
Whether you’re driving XE enthusiastically or simply want the assurance of a car that will remain stable in challenging conditions, Jaguar’s Stability Systems keep XE safely balanced through unexpected driving situations.
