Rendered Speculation: 2016 Jaguar XE Sportbrake

Article by Christian A., on October 13, 2014

Jaguar introduced its all-new XE compact sedan at the 2014 Paris Motor Show and the vehicle’s program director Nick Miller already confirmed plans for wagon, coupe and AWD versions. As a result, RM Design made the first rendering with the upcoming XE Sportbrake and honestly to tell you it looks stunning.

The rendering shows the XE Sportbrake in the S trim and as you can see, it looks like a proper rival for the BMW 3-Series Touring or the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate. Jaguar is expected to offer the same engines found on the sedan, such as a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel that produces 136 hp and 380 Nm of torque or 180 hp and 430 Nm of torque.

This engine offers a fuel consumption of just 3.8 l/100 km (75 UK mpg) with CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km. Jaguar offers a six-speed manual transmission for the less powerful diesel engine as well as an 8-speed automatic transmission for the more powerful version.

In addition, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol version is offered too, developing 200 hp and 280 Nm of torque or 240 hp and 340 Nm of torque. For the S trim, Jaguar offers a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine that generates 340 hp and 450 Nm of torque.

Jaguar is also expected to offer a V8-powered version of the sedan, which means that there are chances to see the same engine on the XE Sportbrake. This model could take on the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate.
