LOS ANGELES MOTOR SHOW 2015
Available with the 180PS 2.0‑litre diesel and supercharged 340PS 3.0‑litre supercharged V6 petrol engines, Jaguar's advanced torque on‑demand all‑wheel drive system and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics technology maintain the XE's rear‑wheel drive handling balance and agility while improving performance in all weather conditions.
The addition of all‑wheel drive (AWD) to the range broadens the XE's appeal still further by maximising the performance and handling benefits of the extra traction, particularly in adverse conditions. The XE is a true all‑weather sports saloon.
INFOTAINMENT AND CONNECTIVITY
With a tablet‑style touchscreen, navigation that can tell others if you're running late, a Wi‑Fi hotspot for up to eight devices, apps for wearable technology and an 825W Meridian Digital Surround Sound system ‑ the new XE's next‑generation infotainment system ensures that you're always connected.
Customers can now choose between the InControl Touch system with 8‑inch capacitive touchscreen and the next‑generation InControl Touch Pro system ‑ Jaguar's most advanced infotainment system ever. InControl Touch Pro is designed around a tablet‑style 10.2‑inch touchscreen and is as intuitive to use as it is powerful, making every journey a more enjoyable, rewarding experience.
WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY MAKES IT EVEN EASIER TO STAY IN TOUCH
The XE's InControl Touch and InControl Touch Pro infotainment systems support the familiar InControl Apps, Wi‑Fi Hotspot, InControl Secure and InControl Protect features, but now the InControl Remote app is available for the Apple Watch, making it simpler and more convenient than ever to interact with the vehicle ‑ no matter where you are.
Offering similar functionality to the InControl Remote smartphone app, drivers will be able to use their Apple Watch to lock and unlock the vehicle, check how much fuel is in the tank and see its location on a map. It's even possible to set the climate control and start the engine to get the cabin to the ideal temperature before the journey begins.
