Jaguar XE – Overview
Taking on the German collosi in their own game is brave (and a little mad) but the British marque has managed to make a sporty saloon that is the current favourite of automotive handling geeks. Sales figures don’t reflect this, but it is at the very least a moral victory and a promise that future saloons will have the same agility.
When it was first launched in 2015, the XE received much praise for its driving experience, thanks to a lightweight aluminium chassis. From here, Jaguar built a premium saloon with actual sporty credentials.
The saloon has been facelifted in 2019, and there are 4 petrol, and 2 diesel variants available globally. Malaysia only receives one: the XE R-Dynamic in rear-wheel drive. It is the halo car of the range, a spot it shares with its AWD twin that doesn’t come here officially.
