Jaguar XE updated with new connected technologies


Jaguar XE – With many brands now offering quality products with many features, a prestige brand has to promote its new technologies and how easy they are to use.

The features Jaguar has emphasised in its new XE R-Dynamic Black medium sedan (a BMW 3 series competitor) are:

  • An infotainment system with 10 inch screen, its own power source so that it start immediately and sync two phones,
  • Software-Over-The-Air that ensures that the system gets updates seamlessly and remotely – hopefully without change for changes sake.
  • There’s Cabin Air Ionisation to improve interior air quality through Nanoetechnology,
  • A wearable Activity Key that can lock, unlock and start the vehicle without a conventional key fob and
  • An upgraded power train with an 8 speed transmission, all-wheel drive and a more powerful engine. The press material doesn’t feel the need to mention how many cylinders

Priced from around $70,000 drive away
