The exterior design of the XE borrows heavily from the F-Type sports car. The front end features projector headlamps with J-shaped LED DRLs, a mesh grille, large air intakes and a contoured hood. The flanks carry a fender vent with the rear having an F-Type inspired taillight LED cluster and a subtle boot spoiler. The XE has dimensions of 4.6 m, 1.85 m and 1.4 m in length, width and height respectively.

The interior has a neat layout with the multi-function three-spoke steering wheel again similar to what is seen on the F-Type. The instrument cluster has a dual-pod setup with a large MID. The dashboard is covered in leather with the 8-inch touchscreen at the center, to access the InControl Touch infotainment system.
