The Jaguar XE Reaches Short List for 2016 European Car of the Year

The Jaguar XE Reaches Short List for 2016 European Car of the Year

Of the 35 candidates for the 2016 European Car of the Year award, the Jaguar XE is one of just seven to be short listed.

The 58 jurors representing 22 European countries will announce the winner on 29February 2016. Key criteria for European Car of the Year are technical innovation and value for money.

Developed using Jaguar’s Lightweight Aluminium Architecture, the XE is the most fuel-efficient Jaguar and offers the lowest total cost of ownership of any Jaguar, boasting class-leading residual values and CO2 emissions from just 99g/km.

Together with benchmark vehicle dynamics, perfect proportions and dramatic Jaguar design, these qualities have already contributed to 23 global awards. The inherent strength and stiffness of the body structure, together with cutting-edge driver assistance systems including stereo camera-based Autonomous Emergency Braking, helped the XE to achieve the maximum five star safety rating from Euro NCAP.

“We are delighted that the Jaguar XE has made it onto the short list for European Car of the Year. The votes from the jury are testament to the absolute dedication and hard work of every single member of the team that has helped to develop this truly outstanding sports saloon.

“Our no-compromise approach is why the XE is the only car in its class with an aluminium-intensive monocoque. It’s also why the XE is the first car in the world to feature the revolutionary All Surface Progress Control system. The hard work continues as we introduce technologies including all-wheel drive and our state-of-the art InControl Touch Pro infotainment system, but just like every other member of the team, I’m looking forward to hearing the winner announced in February next year.”

Kevin Stride, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar XE, XF, F-PACE

Created from a clean sheet, the Jaguar XE is the first model developed using Jaguar’s advanced, Lightweight Aluminium Architecture. Together with highly sophisticated double wishbone and Integral Link suspension systems, this enables an unrivalled combination of ride, handling and refinement.

The XE is also the first model to feature the all-new Ingenium diesel engines. Clean, quiet and responsive, they use advanced technologies including low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation, variable exhaust cam timing and selective catalytic reduction to deliver exceptional fuel efficiency and low emissions. XE diesels will also meet stringent North American emissions regulations.

For the 2017 model year, the Jaguar XE will offer all-wheel drive. The torque on-demand system will preserve the XE’s inherent agility and rear-wheel drive character but will maximise the performance and handling benefits of the extra traction, particularly in adverse conditions.

The XE will also offer 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 and responsive, making every journey a more enjoyable, rewarding experience.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R



5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
