Jaguar has just announced that the all-new XE will be officially unveiled on September 8th in London. According to the official press release the 2015 Jaguar XE promises to bring new levels of innovation in its segment such as its lightweight construction expertise as well as the sophisticated chassis technology and new family of Ingenium engines.
Moreover, the 2015 Jaguar XE comes with a new integral link suspension, unique to its segment, that is way better than the conventional multi-link designs, providing lateral and longitudinal stiffness but also sharp response and handling.
The front suspension is based on the F-Type sportscar and includes key components that were designed to deliver XFR-levels of stiffness. Steering feel was also renowned thanks to the latest generation of the Electric Power Assisted Steering.
In addition, the All Surface Progress Control is a completely new feature in its class and as a result it electronically gains traction with far less drama than a human driver can achieve.
Jaguar says that this system works like a low-speed cruise control and delivers optimum traction in the most slippery conditions.
At first glance, one can tell that the XE sports saloon is by Jaguar, with its aerodynamic body, aluminum skin, and even proportions. In fact, the XE is nothing like any other car in its class.
Form and function without compromise
The Jaguar XE’s blueprints were originally based on the iconic Mk II - the epitome of sports car performance and dynamics squeezed into a beautifully designed four-door body. With that in mind, the XE was built with Jaguar’s signature lightweight materials with exquisite lines and perfectly executed surfaces.
Apart from the lightweight, modular vehicle architecture, the sports saloon is the only car to use an aluminum-intensive monocoque. What makes this model extra special is that it will be the basis of Jaguar’s future models - unlocking new design possibilities for them.
Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design said the brand design has excellent proportions and “a dynamic, edgy feel” as its core. He also said that Jaguar wanted to build a bold sense of movement and as a result, the XE has an uncompromising dynamic appearance. It is easily recognizable with its amazing levels of efficiency as well as its sleek and low proportions that belong to a coupe.
