India-bound Jaguar XE – Motorshow Focus


Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

Will be seen at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo.

Jaguar had showcased the Jaguar XE at the 2015 Thailand Motor Expo. Jaguar’s entry-level sedan will be kept on display at the Auto Expo coming February.

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.
