With the XE, Jaguar have produced a car that seamlessly integrates a fantastic drive, irresistible styling and forward-thinking technology. This brilliant compact executive saloon is as energetic on the road as it is accommodating, making it the perfect choice for the Motability user seeking a high quality vehicle from a much-loved heritage brand.
Classic Jaguar styling meets the vitality of modern design in the XE. The attractively-sculpted boot sweeps down to a wide grille that hosts the Jaguar medallion. This is flanked by to the side by dynamic LED running lights and a sporty lower air intake. The side doors, which neatly incorporate the cabin windows, open widely to make getting in and out of the cabin easy.
The interior is typical of a luxurious executive saloon, featuring a wraparound dashboard and comfortable, ergonomic seating. Motability users will appreciate the level of adjustability possible in the seats, which can accommodate low and high driving positions. Eschewing complexity, Jaguar have opted for a neat, clear layout that puts everything within easy reach.
A variety of engines are available with the XE. The 178bhp 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel engine sits in the middle of the range, offering a smooth but powerful ride, especially when mated to the eight-speed automatic gearbox. Drivers looking for a green choice will find the 161bhp version of the same engine appealing, which emits just 99g/km of CO2, meaning free road tax.
User-friendly technology is one of the hallmarks of the Jaguar XE. The infotainment system works via a generous 10.2-inch touchscreen that prioritises clarity and ease of use. Drivers can download a number of InControl apps designed to improve everyday vehicle use – one helps owners to locate their car in a car park, particularly helpful for those with limited mobility. The entire XE range also includes rear parking sensors, which will aid those who find upper body movement challenging.
The wealth of advanced safety features that come as standard provide everyday peace of mind. Lane departure warning detects and alerts drivers if they are moving out of their lane without correction, whilst low speed automatic breaking autonomously applies brakes in emergency situations.
