Jaguar XE sets to roar Malaysian market with better looks, better drive and smarter choice

Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia has announced the availability of Jaguar XE which promise to bring a sportier feel, an enhanced exterior design, and an all new-luxurious interior.  It also comes with impressive upgrades and advanced technologies.

The XE’s exterior design has been further enhanced with new graphical elements. Its performance-orientated character is complemented by sporty design elements, such as the aircraft winglet-inspired sculpted surfaces, dark mesh detailing to the rear valance and new 18” wheel styles. All-LED headlights with a striking ‘J’ blade daytime running light signature create a more purposeful look for the car. The rear of the car also features a new bumper design and slender all-LED taillights with updated signature graphics accentuating the visual width of the car.

The interior of the XE now comes with sports-style seats come with contrast stitching, Satin Chrome gearshift paddles and R-Dynamic treadplates. The beautifully-crafted, all-new interior features extensive use of soft-touch materials, premium veneers and all-new door trims that improve usability and practicality. A new steering wheel, shared with the all-electric I-PACE, features hidden until-lit graphics and tactile switches for intuitive control of key functions.

The latest XE is powered by the Jaguar’s Ingenium P300 engine which produces 300PS of horsepower at 5,500rpm and 400Nm of torque between 1,500 – 4,500rpm at a top speed of 250km/h.  Paired with the ZF 8HP45 eight-speed automatic transmission, the XE delivers exceptionally smooth acceleration with seamless gearshifts and outstanding responses. It also features a state-of-the-art pendulum damper in the torque converter that is extremely effective at absorbing low frequency vibrations, enabling the engine to run at lower speeds without compromising refinement.

The refreshed XE is also the smartest and most connected of Jaguar’s sedans with the inclusion of the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system – first time for the XE, which offers instinctive control through a pair of seamlessly integrated high-resolution touchscreens. All the key systems are at the driver’s fingertips, displayed over a pair of HD touchscreens and intuitive, tactile rotary dials. Connectivity has also been enhanced for the new XE, with the introduction of a Smartphone Pack, which features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The system mirrors the driver’s smartphone on the 10-inch HD touchscreen, allowing access to compatible apps quickly, easily, and safely, while on the move. 

The new Jaguar XE comes only in the R-Dynamic variant with a starting price of RM395,831.02 (applicable only to Peninsular Malaysia; excluding road tax and insurance). The price stated is inclusive of 50% Sales Tax waiver provided under the economic stimulus plan, Penjana.
