Jaguar’s baby sedan is extensively configurable with a range of accessories.
The online configurator for the new Jaguar XE is up and running on the company’s UK website.
The sedan will be available in five variants – SE, Prestige, R-Sport, Portfolio and S – with the last variant reserved for the 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine. Selecting the Portfolio variant, the XE can be had in a choice of 18 body colors and 10 options for the alloy wheels which include 18- and 19-inch rims.
Once this is done, you can spec up the headlights to Adaptive Bi-Xenon lights with cornering lights, as the standard ones are HIDs. A full width sliding sunroof is optional as well.
Inside, there are two choices for the headlining, two for the steering wheel, two for the ambient lighting, four for the interior trim color and six for the veneer.
Jaguar have added a range of accessories and options for the XE. For example, the base Portfolio model costs 32,975 GBP (INR 32 lakhs), but with all the bells and whistles ticked, the configurator indicated a price of 48,849 GBP (INR 48 lakhs).
The XE starts European deliveries next year, and will initially be offered with two four-cylinder engines, and a supercharged six-cylinder engine.
