The updated Jaguar XE receives tweaks to its exterior, upgrades to its technology arsenal, and a substantially overhauled interior. While it doesn’t go very far from its predecessor, it now looks sportier thanks to a handful of upgrades inspired by the F-Type sports car.
Up front, there’s a revised main grille that’s slightly slimmer and narrower at the bottom. The lower grille is also narrower, while the side vents are notably bigger.
As a cool feature, the L-shaped black inserts that flank the side outlets look as if they’re a natural extension of the black splitter-like element. Further, Jaguar also reshaped the headlamps, which are now slightly slimmer and have sharper edges.
The LED lights with J-shaped daytime running light signature are now standard on all trims, including the base model. Jaguar offers new wheel designs, including a very cool five-spoke rim, and standard 18-inch rollers for the base model.
You can now also order the sporty R-Dynamic package with blacked-out trim on the S, SE, and HSE version. The air-conditioning control panel now has a digital screen that enables you to control air flow, temperature, and all the setting specific to A/C systems.
The small console that includes the shifter was and now includes a new control layout and the SportShift gear selector and JaguarDrive Control switch from the F-Type.These are changes that have no doubt upped the XE several notches to the north.
