The hood of the XE looks a little longer than that seen among competitors, giving it a distinct Jaguar flavor.

Jaguar offers the XE with three engines, a 2-liter turbo, 2-liter diesel turbo and supercharged 3-liter V6.

The variants available are termed 25t, 20d and 35t, dependent on engine type, and all-wheel-drive is offered on the diesel and V6 versions.

The hood bulges upwards a bit, possibly making room for an even bigger engine for an SVR version of the XE.

The side graphic looks fairly conventional for this segment, betraying a conservative element to the XE's styling.

The XE's all-wheel-drive system was originally developed for the F-Type, and automatically adjusts for rain and slippery surfaces.
