Jaguars’ invite to road test XE in compact executive comparison

Wednesday 31 August 2016

Jaguar is throwing down the gauntlet with an open invitation for potential car buyers to test the XE against its closest rivals in the market through group tests arranged at UK showrooms, September 2-4th 2016.

More than 250 examples of the three main rivals to the Jaguar XE have been brought in and placed at key Jaguar retailers across the UK for the magazine-style group tests to take place.

The Autocar 2016 ‘Game Changer’ is fast approaching its 50th award, and was shortlisted for the coveted European Car of the Year award. The XE has played a crucial role in the business’s record-breaking sales in 2016, with almost 30,000 XEs making their way onto global driveways so far this year. Already hailed as the best drivers’ car in its class, the updates to the XE for the 2017 model year have enhanced this further. It now comes with key specification additions; including an all-wheel drive (AWD) system, which is available to order on the 2.0-litre Ingenium 180PS diesel variant.

The AWD system enhances vehicle dynamics and improves traction, while Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR) optimises the AWD system by changing the powertrain and Dynamic Stability Control system mapping according to the conditions.

Jaguar’s advanced Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, and high-tech Ingenium engines, make the XE the most efficient non-hybrid car in its class with fuel economy of up to 75mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km. As well as its business-friendly emissions the XE also boasts the highest three-year/60,000-mile residual value* in the segment.

The 2017 model year XE also comes with a state-of-the-art InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with a 10.2-inch tablet-style touchscreen that offers intuitive operation, super-fast response times and intelligent navigation. The system offers a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices, and is compatible with an Apple Watch app, that offers remote functions including fuel level check, lock and unlock, and even remote engine starts.
