New small executive sedan from Jaguar takes aim at the 3 Series – price from $199,999 with COE

SINGAPORE — Jaguar dealer Wearnes Automotive launched the new Jaguar XE at its showroom located on 45 Leng Kee Road, on September 3.

The new XE is currently only available with a 2.0-litre turbocharged in-line 4 petrol with 200hp in trim levels of either Prestige or R-Sport for the special launch price of $199,999 with COE (the expiry of the launch price is to be advised). The list price for each variant is $204,999 and $234,999, both with COE, respectively.

The 2.0-litre diesel Ingenium engine with 180PS in Prestige will be available in November this year. This is the first model to be fitted with Jag’s latest line of ‘Ingenium’ engines. Notably, the XE is also the first brand new model built on a new platform architecture (codenamed iQ[Al] which stands for ‘intelligent aluminium architecture) that will underpin future Jaguar models.

The following engines/trim levels will be on indent basis for Singapore:

– 2.0-litre turbocharged in-line 4 petrol engine with 200hp in Portfolio trim
– 2.0-litre turbocharged in-line 4 petrol engine with 240hp in Prestige, R-Sport or Portfolio 
– 2.0-litre turbocharged in-line 4 diesel Ingenium engine with 180hp in R-Sport or Portfolio 
– 3.0-litre supercharged V6 petrol with 340hp in S trim ($274,999 with COE)

The 2.0-litre diesel Ingenium with 163PS and manual transmissions will not be available for Singapore.

As mentioned, Singapore will be getting the 200hp 2.0-litre turbo in Prestige and R-Sport trim; the first comes with Taurus leather upholstery with contrast stitching, and ‘Riva Hoop’ with door trims brushed in aluminium. The later will have unique technical mesh fabric inserts, tread plates and a sports steering wheel spotting the R-Sport branding.

Standard on both models is: stop/start ignition, front and rear parking aids with rear view camera, bi-xenon headlights with washers and powered tailgate. On the inside, its eight-inch infotainment touchscreen designed to work with ‘swiping’ gestures features Jaguar’s InControl Touch media system that is both Apple- and Android-friendly. It also comes with navigation, a ‘portable audio interface’ with Bluetooth audio streaming and telephone connectivity.

Victor Kwan, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover Singapore, said he expects this year is going to be one of the busiest for the brand from Coventry, and thanks largely to the new XE. The XE is aimed squarely at the BMW 3 Series, with Jaguar talking up the sportiness and design aspects of its own vehicle. The last small executive from Jaguar was the X-Type, which was sold from 2001 to 2009.

Kwan is confident that the all new XE will do well in Singapore, “I’ve been hearing people describe the XE as a four-door version of the F-Type.” To further emphasise this point, Jaguar will have a seven-day exchange policy (terms and conditions apply, the expiry of the seven-day exchange policy is to be advised also).

The XE is but one of three all new Jaguar models, the other two being the new XF (as reviewed in CB238 and is expected to be launched later this year) and the F-Pace crossover that debuts at the Frankfurt Motor Show this month.

“Before the XE was launched, it already received interests online with almost half a million online configurations of would-be buyers visiting the website and trying out different colours as well as accessories,” says Kwan.
