Jaguar XE sedan teased officially – #FEELXE
Jaguar seems to have readied the final prototype of Jaguar XE sedan as they tease the test mule with abstract camouflage. The latest XE image was revealed on Twitter, as the all new XE displays #FEELXE trend tag written across the side of the saloon. For official full blown unveil, fans have to wait till October for 2014 Paris Motor Show.
Jaguar XE will sit with a grin in the highly buzzing compact premium sedan segment, rubbing thighs with Audi A4, BMW 3 series and Mercedes-Benz C-class. The all new XE saloon is slated to be more voguish compared to the test mule images and head shot that Jaguar flashed up for all of Geneva Auto Show press audience earlier this year.
The new XE saloon will be powered by 2.0 litre four cylinder engine from Jaguar’s new ‘Ingenium’ range of engines. The architecture of XE will be based on new rear and all wheel drive configurations. Top speed will be around 186 mph (approx. 300 kmph). These engines may eventually replace the four cylinder engines derived from Ford’s, seated in Land Rover’s Freelander and Evoque models.
According to Jaguar, Ingenium is a “new family of premium, lightweight, low-friction, low-emission four-cylinder petrol and diesel units”. Ingenium also “utilises the most flexible engine architecture ever produced by Jaguar Land Rover, with an advanced design configured to suit in-line and transverse installations for rear and all-wheel drive configurations”.
All new Jaguar XE sedan is expected to start selling second quarter of 2015, at a price of around £29,000 (Rs. 28.5 lakhs approx.).
