Jaguar is giving the XE and XF series a facelift. In addition to more powerful and more economical engines, there will be updates “over the air” in the future.
Jaguar refreshes its mid-range model XE and the XF positioned above it. For the 2021 model year, there will be some engines equipped with mild hybrid technology, modified infotainment and many new equipment options.
The British automaker has announced subtle retouching of the design. Both series will be on the road in early 2021. The XE can be ordered from 43,378 euros. The XF costs at least 49,909 euros as an upper mid-range sedan and from 52,970 euros as a station wagon.
New engines do 15 percent more
The engine range of the series will be identical in future. A new feature is a four-cylinder diesel with a displacement of two liters and a 48-volt starter generator. It has an output of 150 kW / 204 PS, around 15 percent more than its predecessor, but thanks to the mild hybrid technology in the XE it has a standard consumption of 4.3 liters (112 g / km CO2). In the XF, values from 4.9 liters (130 g / km) are in the data sheet.
Alternatively there are two 2.0-liter petrol engines with 184 kW / 250 PS or 221 kW / 300 PS. It is always shifted with an eight-speed automatic. The top version has all-wheel drive as standard, in many other variants this is available at an additional cost.
Updates come “over the air”
Jaguar has also announced further technical changes for both series. Among other things, there is a new infotainment system that is supposed to enable “updates over the air” for the entire vehicle via an integrated online connection without a visit to the workshop. In addition, the British have developed a new air purification system that is supposed to filter germs and allergens from the interior.
