The defining features of the XE R-Sport variant include its model-specific body kit. The front bumper, body-coloured side sills, branded side vents and boot lid spoiler combine for a head-turning finish. The vehicle rides on 18-inch five-spoke or 17-inch 15 spoke alloys depending on the engine you choose, enhance the car's aesthetic appeal and performance. 


Open a door and you will notice R-Sport metal sill finishers which demonstrate Jaguar's high attention to detail. High class heated leather sports seats with contrast stitching deliver comfort and support no matter how far you travel. The sport dashboard highlights the car's premium status and features alongside brushed aluminium veneers. What's more, the cabin is practical as well as stylish as there is room for five adults. A split folding rear bench offers a range of interior configurations to meet the demands of individual journeys.


The interior is also home to a variety of cutting-edge Jaguar technology. The InControl Touch system is the car's infotainment hub, through a centrally-mounted eight-inch colour touchscreen you can select your preferred choice of music and adjust the interior climate. Navigation prompts are shown here, while Bluetooth connectivity enables you to take calls hands-free. Jaguar Voice Control recognises a number of different voice commands too so you have the ability to command various functions without lifting a finger.

Engines and performance

The XE R-Sport's engine line-up matches its sporty character. It includes a high-performance 2.0-litre i4 240PS turbocharged petrol engine which accelerates from 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds. There are also two diesel units each with a choice of manual or automatic transmission. The 163PS diesel manual is the ideal choice for efficient output as you can expect as much as 75mpg combined. CO2 emissions of just 99g/km also mean zero road tax and a low BIK rating for business buyers.


A reassuring amount of safety features have been added to the XE R-Sport to protect you in many different circumstances. All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) is included with all automatic models to act like a low-speed cruise control. It helps the XE to grip on slippery surfaces such as wet grass or icy roads. Autonomous Emergency Braking acts as a second pair of eyes by recognising imminent collisions and applying the brakes if you don't. There's also Hill Launch Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition – all as standard.
