Jaguar have unveiled their new venture into the premium sports sedan market, the XE.
The mid-sized contender, which will debut Jaguar’s state-of-the-art ‘Ingenium’ engine family, will become the first aluminium monocoque product in the segment.
It will boast a top speed of 186mph and emissions lower than 100g/km.
Ian Callum, Director of Design at Jaguar, added: “The new Jaguar XE is every bit a modern Jaguar; more compact in size but visually striking.
“Customers will expect a great deal from a mid-size Jaguar – it must be practical but premium.

“We never forget we are designing a Jaguar and that means it must be as exciting to look at and drive as it is brilliant to run and practical to own.
“We believe we’ve done just that with the Jaguar XE.”
Full XE technical and range details will be announced later in 2014, with the global roll-out beginning next year.
