XE DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Advanced engineering and cutting-edge technology make every moment at the wheel of an XE feel incredible.

The XE is engineering and technology working together to give you an unforgettable driving experience. It has a light chassis for agility and state-of–the-art electronic aids like All-Surface Progress Control and JaguarDrive Control™. And with the option of All Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics, XE offers even greater capability in challenging road conditions.

JAGUAR LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM ARCHITECTURE

This immensely strong body saves weight without compromising durability and provides very high torsional stiffness. It is the ideal platform for a performance car and helps achieve optimum weight distribution approaching 50:50.

TORQUE VECTORING4

Torque Vectoring By Braking helps plant your XE on twisty roads. On tight turns, it applies the brake to the inside wheel and directs engine torque to the wheel with the most grip.

AWD AND INTELLIGENT DRIVELINE DYNAMICS

The Available All Wheel Drive (AWD) system delivers confident handling on most surfaces. The system uses a unique Intelligent Driveline Dynamics control strategy software developed by Jaguar that features sophisticated algorithms to react intelligently to road conditions. Predictive, as well as reactive, the system helps prevent you from losing traction instead of working to regain it.4

1. DRY ROAD CONDITIONS

In normal driving conditions, virtually all torque is distributed to the rear wheels providing signature Jaguar Rear Wheel Drive performance.

2. LOW TRACTION

On slippery surfaces, such as grass and mud, torque can be balanced 50:50 between the front and rear wheels to maximize traction.

3. VARIABLE CONDITIONS

Where road conditions are changeable, over 90 percent of torque can be intelligently distributed from the rear wheels to the front to optimize traction in all conditions.

ADAPTIVE SURFACE RESPONSE

Adaptive Surface Response (ASR) recognizes differences between surfaces to exploit the maximum available grip.

ALL SURFACE PROGRESS CONTROL4

The unique All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) developed by Jaguar helps make the XE easier to drive in challenging conditions, allowing you to maintain optimum control. It can provide assistance in slippery conditions; whether helping to navigate a snowy driveway or park on an icy surface.4

INSPIRED SUSPENSION

The Jaguar XE features an advanced double wishbone front suspension design based on the F-TYPE sports car. This helps give the XE a similar level of agility and “connected” steering feel. At the rear, an integral link rear suspension made from hollow forged aluminum helps provide excellent lateral and longitudinal stiffness, delivering sharp response and handling while retaining the refined and luxurious ride befitting a Jaguar sport sedan.

ADAPTIVE DYNAMICS4

The optional XE Adaptive Dynamics analyzes acceleration, braking, cornering and throttle responses hundreds of times a second4 – instinctively modifying dynamic settings to improve performance.

CONFIGURABLE DYNAMICS

This technology, developed for the F-TYPE, allows the XE driver to fine-tune the engine, steering, gearshift and suspension characteristics to best suit their driving style.4

JAGUARDRIVE CONTROL

JaguarDrive Control allows you to select Standard, Eco, Dynamic or Rain/Ice/Snow mode, each subtly changing the steering and throttle mapping. Eco mode encourages fuel-efficient driving by offering gear change information and fuel economy feedback; Dynamic mode sharpens the throttle response. Rain/Ice/Snow mode automatically dampens acceleration and applies more gradual traction for slippery conditions.4

ELECTRIC POWER ASSISTED STEERING

EPAS continually adjusts itself to help give you exactly the control you need at any given moment. At slow speeds it helps tight maneuvering. At higher speeds it gives incredible feedback. And, since it’s only active when it needs to be to be, it doesn’t sap engine power unnecessarily.

From the diesel 20d to the super-sporty 35t R-Sport – the XE combines a range of engines with the design and performance benefits of aluminum construction.
