2021 JAGUAR XE DELIVERS IMPRESSIVE NEW PACKAGE
NEW XE R-DYNAMIC BLACK
Based on the XE R-Dynamic SE, Zachariah says, “The Black predictably gets the Black Exterior Pack with black grille and exterior trims, a boot lip-spoiler, 19-inch gloss black alloy wheels, red brake calipers, gloss black interior trim, steel sports pedals, and a Meridian audio system.” He points out that the R-Dynamic black adds an extra $6000 of value to the XE.
While the R-Dynamic Black is the first vehicle in the XE range to be revealed, buyers can look forward to announcements for both the R-Dynamic SE and HSE models before the end of 2020.
Moving onto the car’s performance specifications, Zachariah says, “The 2.0-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder engine, referred to as the 'P300' by Jaguar, puts out 221kW and 400Nm. A new all-wheel-drive system now delivers the power via an eight-speed automatic transmission, getting the Jag to 100km/h from zero in 5.9 seconds.”
DOMINATED BY TECH
For the driver, a 12.3-inch high-definition instrument cluster offers seamless control, with digital dials, navigation, media, phone contact list, or infotainment systems displays. A head-up display as standard allows the driver’s eyes to remain safely on the road.
PREMIUM INTERIOR UPDATES
A suite of advanced safety technologies come as standard in the updated XE, including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, real collision monitor and a 3D surround camera.
