All-wheel drive and upgraded technology systems for Jaguar XE


An all-wheel drive system is now an option on the Jaguar XE saloon, as part of a 2017 model year update.

The system is now available to order with the 2.0-litre 180ps Ingenium diesel variant, and only transfers torque to the front wheels when required. The add-on also brings Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR), whichmakes the AWD system even changes the mapping of the powertrain and Dynamic Stability Control system according to the conditions. 

The upgraded InControl Touch Pro infotainment system now adds tablet-style 10.2-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices and apps for wearable technology such as the Apple Watch.

Commute Mode can learn your daily drive and, using historical and real-time traffic information, can suggest alternative routes that will help you to avoid congestion. 

Drivers can use the system to share destination, current location and estimated time of arrival (ETA) with others via email or text message. If there are delays and the ETA slips, an automatic follow-up message can let them know and provide an update.

The InControl Remote app is now available for the Apple Watch. Offering similar functionality to the InControl Remote smartphone app, drivers will be able to use their Apple Watch to lock and unlock the vehicle, check how much fuel is in the tank and see its location on a map.
