The latest big news from Jaguar is about their smallest offering. The XE sedan is new for 2016 and will arrive with rear wheel drive in a body made of aluminum. This is their first car to feature electric power steering and a new traction control system developed with Land Rover.
Power will come from the 3.0-liter V6 also shared with Land Rover. This engine makes 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, and will be coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The marketplace for compact luxury sedans is filled with other offerings claiming the same amenities, but it will be nice to see how the competition reacts to a proper British motorcar.
