Though the Jaguar XE has only been in the American market for a few years, it has made quite a splash in the realm of luxury vehicles.
Mercedes has always been the king of luxury while BMW has always been the king of sport, though finally, we have the XE coming through and taking aim at both. This is precisely why we want to grant this car our full attention and examine it at every angle.
A Quick History of the Jaguar XE
The Jaguar XE was first announced at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, though it didn’t debut on the global market until later that year in September. Jaguar knew that they needed to fill a spot for an entry-level sedan that young or inexperienced drivers in the North American market could afford. They filled that spot with the XE.
With Speed and Grace – the Jaguar XE
The 2019 Jaguar XE is a serious entry-level sedan. It comes with a high-quality V-6 engine that is refined for performance, giving drivers 380 horsepower. In terms of interior and technology upgrades, the car gets an InControl Touch Pro Infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Landmark and 300 Sport models are also available, which come with unique bumpers, higher-quality wheels, and different exterior and interior trims.
A Speedy Timeline of the Jaguar XE (2015-Present)
The Jaguar XE is still in its first generation. It uses the new modular architecture system from Land Rover to help it achieve better driving dynamics. This means that the car has a much shorter overhang than similar models, giving the cabin a laid-back feel and the body a coupe-like shape.
Though it didn’t constitute a second generation, the XE was upgraded in 2018 with added cup holders, a dashboard LCD display, and an In-Control display.
The Jaguar XE In the News
In recent Jaguar news, the new Jaguar XE SV Project 8 iteration has just broken its own record on the Nordschleife Nurburgring. Currently, it holds the title for the world’s fastest family sedan.
Celebrity Endorsements of the Jaguar XE
As a fairly new vehicle, we don’t think that the Jaguar XE has quite caught on with the celebrity market, as we have yet to find any XE celebrity owners. With that said, there are plenty of celebrity Jaguar owners in general, including James May, Patrick Stewart, Menzies Campbell, and many more.
Best Jaguar XE Groups
While Jaguar has a pretty large club for general Jaguar owners and enthusiasts, they also have a specific Jaguar XE forum that is perfect for lovers of the model. Here you can find discussions, modification galleries, and new Jaguar XE news.
The Jaguar XE – a Rebellion Against Civility
The Jaguar XE is a vehicle that takes on a fashionable appearance, though it has the engine and the power to back it up. With an engine that will make you grip your seat and a comfortable interior that will make you feel like a star, it is one of the best entry-level Jaguars to have ever hit the market. We can’t wait to see what Jaguar does next.
