The new Jaguar XE comes with a host of updates over the previous model. This includes a number of subtle changes, added features and equipment; both on the interior and exterior of the sedan.
Starting off with the design, the new Jaguar XE comes with a wider and lower stance than the previous model. At the front, the new XE receives a larger front grille, sleeker LED headlamps with integrated J-shaped LED DRLs. The new Jaguar XE also comes with larger air intakes on the front bumper as well.
Moving to the side and rear profile of the Jaguar XE, the new sedan now comes with a set of redesigned alloy wheels and a sharper-looking set of LED taillights. All this gives the new Jaguar XE sedan a more aggressive and sporty appearance.
Inside, the new Jaguar XE comes with a host of updates and changes. This includes a dual-touchscreen display at the centre console; one for infotainment and the other for the climate controls. The infotainment display comes in the form of a 10.2-inch touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with other connected features and navigation.
The new Jaguar XE also carries forward the pistol-grip gear-shifter from the F-Pace and E-Pace SUVs. The sedan also comes with a host of other standard features such as leather upholstery, wireless charging, steering-mounted soft-touch controls and a host of others.
The new (2020) Jaguar XE carries forward the same engine options from the previous model. This includes a 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol and 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel units. Jaguar has, however, updated the two engines to comply with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms of April 2020.
The 2.0-litre petrol engine churns out 246bhp at 5500rpm and 365Nm of torque at 1500rpm. The 2.0-litre diesel engine, on the other hand, churns out 178bhp at 4000rpm and 430Nm of torque 1750rpm. Both engines are mated to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission unit as standard.
