IAB Report – Jaguar XE teased yet again in a new video
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Premieres on September 8th.
Jaguar has unveiled yet another teaser video of its BMW 3 Series rival, the Jaguar XE, that doesn’t expose much of the car’s design, which will borrow cues from the new Jaguars – F-Type, XJ and XF.
Most notable changes are found inside the XE, where it will feature a large 8-inch touchscreen display powered by a new InControl infotainment system. Features include WiFi hotspot functionality and apps specifically designed for the XE. To improve driver convenience, Jaguar has equipped a laser heads up display that puts “sharp, high-contrast color images into driver’s line of sight.”

Under the hood, Jaguar will offer new four-cylinder engines from the Ingenium series that will be available in various different capacities and outputs. Also expected is an XE-S variant that is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 Supercharged engine, as well as a 5.0-liter supercharged V8-powered XE R-S. Jaguar hasn’t released any official figures of its engine lineup.
It will be unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show early next month, prior to which the media gets to see it on September 8th, 2014.
