Jaguar’s answer to the Bmw 3-Series Sedan and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class a.k.a. the all-new XE made its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. This new vehicle promise to redefine the concept of sports saloon and according to Jaguar it will be the driver’s car in its class.

According to the official press release, the all-new 2015 Jaguar XE is the only vehicle in its class to use an aluminum-intensive monocoque and together with the double wishbone front suspension and Integral Link rear axle, is fundamental to vehicle’s dynamics.

The new saloon will be available with the first Ingenium engines a.k.a. 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesels that deliver 163 hp and 380 Nm of torque or 180 hp and 430 Nm of torque. The less powerful version will be the most fuel-efficient as it achieves an impressive 3.8 l/100 km (75 UK mpg), while CO2 emissions are 99 g/km on the European combined cycle.

The 163 hp version will be offered with a six-speed manual transmission, while the most powerful version will be available with either six-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmissions. When it comes to petrol engines, Jaguar will offer a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit that delivers 200 hp and 280 Nm of torque or 240 hp and 340 Nm of torque.

Just like on the diesel engines, the less powerful version will get a manual transmission, while the more powerful version will be available with a six-speed manual transmission or a more efficient 8-speed automatic. For those who demand more power, Jaguar will offer the XE S, which will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine found also on the F-Type sports car and capable to develop 340 hp and 450 Nm of torque.

These numbers will help the vehicle sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.0 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds), while top speed will be limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h. All engines deliver the power to the rear wheels.
