The 2018 Jaguar XE, a compact luxury sports sedan, will blow you away with its assertive design and impressive handling. Get a glimpse at this next generation model by visiting Jaguar Chicago, your Chicago Jaguar dealer.

This 2018 Jaguar XE review will highlight the features of this new model. For 2018, the XE upgraded to the Ingenium-family of engines, with the choice of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine, the turbocharged 2.0-liter, diesel-fueled four-cylinder engine, or the 3.0-liter V-6 supercharged with 340 or 380 HP. The entire line of Ingenium engines were designed in-house and are being installed in all new models. The base model also comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Top features include a new digital gauge cluster display, alloy wheels, and All-Wheel-Drive options that come with All Surface Progress Control, a system that maintains your vehicle speed no matter what surface you're driving on and improves traction upon takeoff.

The Jaguar XE interior is welcoming, with a minimalist design that starts with the dashboard. It flows across the vehicle as one continuous shape, making for a cleaner viewing line. At the center of the dashboard is a large touch-screen infotainment center, housing connectivity features and navigation, with the climate controls located just below the screen for easy access.

The safety options are endless with Jaguar XE, starting with the futuristic Head-Up Display. Lasers project driving information and navigation directions directly onto the windshield in front of you, keeping your eyes focused on the road ahead. Other options include:

  • ·       Blind Spot Monitoring and Assistance - Radar sensors detect vehicles in your blind spot, and the assistance portion helps prevent collisions
  • ·       Park Assist - The XE can accurately park your car while you control the brake and accelerator pedals
  • ·       Surround Camera System - Provides multiple views from around the vehicle using four cameras
  • ·       Lane Keep Assist & Driver Condition Monitor - Helps avoid unintentional lane drift by steering the vehicle back into its lane, and also detects lapses in driving skills, suggesting the driver to take a break due to fatigue
  • ·       Traffic Sign Recognition with Adaptive Speed Limiter - A forward-facing camera detects speed limit signs and no passing signs, displaying them on the instrument panel and keeping you under the posted speed limit
  • ·       Adaptive Cruise Control With Queue Assist - Using radar technology, you can automatically adjust your speed to that of the car in front of you, maintain a safe distance, and smoothly come to a stop if needed

With all these features, it's easy to see that the XE is a true Jaguar. The looks, the performance, and the features - it's undeniable.
