The Jaguar comes a host of features, which make it stand apart in the market. The 180PS Ingenium diesel, 340PS supercharged V6 petrol engines and eight-speed automatic transmissions are equipped with All Wheel Drive (AWD), which in normal driving conditions sends all the torque to the rear axle, preserving the rear wheel drive dynamics while in demanding conditions, the torque is transferred to the front too.

Jaguar XE features InControl Touch Pro – the next gen Infotainment system that is packaged around a 10.2-inch Touchscreen, which offers endless connectivity with Wi-Fi Hotspot, apps for wearable Technology and intelligent navigation.

There are two options on offer – A 380 W sound system with 11 speakers including a sub-woofer and an 825W sound system with 17 speakers and a sub-woofer.

The Jaguar XE is manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull Plant alongside the all-new F-PACE, and in India at the JLR India plant.
