FEATURES & OPTIONS
Intense in its focus, sinuous in its line, muscular in its stance, XE appears visceral, alive, and ready to pounce. XE’s entire body is formed with Jaguar’s state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics optimising aerodynamics and minimising drag.
Unmistakably Jaguar and instantly recognisable, head on, XE shows its breeding, its elegance and its athleticism. Its sculpted bonnet sweeping over to the intense stare of its headlights, outlined with J blade LED lights (optional on SE and Prestige models), gives XE a motivated stance, determined, purposeful and prepared for whatever the journey may bring.
Aerodynamically sculpted with Jaguar’s distinctive sweeping lines, XE’s bonnet channels air precisely over and around the body, visually expressing XE’s innate dynamism.
Inspired by F-TYPE, the grille gives XE a determined sports car look. It's designed to keep the engine at optimum temperature and efficiency at the highest performance levels and in all conditions.
Like all contemporary Jaguar cars, XE has a rising waistline to add drama and dynamism even when it is stationary. This is defined by the sharp design feature that flashes from the front bumper, along the flanks, to culminate at the tail. XE's chrome side vents, embossed with the Jaguar name, deliberately allude to F-TYPE and there is even the tell-tale Jaguar feature that arcs around the side windows. Exterior aluminium panels have crease lines with the same tight radii, clarity and precision found on F-TYPE.
Chrome framed, Jaguar embossed, mesh side vents emphasise XE’s sporting character.
The side window glass is framed with a continuous chrome feature providing a singular visual unity to the cabin, front and rear. This refined, sprung arc of silver adds to the drama and presence of XE.
Using techniques derived from the aerospace industry, XE is the first of a new generation of Jaguar cars to be built on the all-new Advanced Aluminium Architecture. The specially developed RC5754 aluminium alloy is both lighter and stronger than any Jaguar has used before, allowing both improved handling and greater flexibility in design.
One glance at the tail of XE and you know that it could only be a Jaguar. Only Jaguar has the technology and expertise to create those signature rear haunches – Jaguar is a world leader in aluminium car construction. It allows the creation of more radical designs and sharper creases from deeper, more innovatively formed pressings with the body side curvature of XE aerodynamically honed to sweep air seamlessly rearwards to the tail section.
As if ready to spring, XE's taut rear haunches feature a perfectly proportioned overhang behind the rear wheels, defining its sporting character.
Taking its design cues from F-TYPE, XE’s high intensity LED tail lamps feature a distinctive roundel intersected by a horizontal line. The high-mounted centre brake light is a beautifully integrated full LED blade that spans the width of the rear windscreen’s top edge.
