The Jaguar XE 300 SPORT special edition with a unique combination of exterior design details and interior trim is now available in South Africa.
On top of four exterior paint choices including Caldera Red, Santorini Black, Indus Silver and Yulong White, the exterior of the 300 SPORT features a selection of model-specific enhancements such as a Dark Satin Grey finish for the grille and window surrounds, side sills and vents, rear valance, mirror caps and boot spoiler.
Alloy wheel choices include 19- and 20-inch options, also with Dark Satin Grey finishes, while special black brake calipers get 300 SPORT branding.
The interior is finished with matching 300 SPORT badging on the steering wheel, sill treadplates, carpet mats and headrests, and striking yellow contrast stitching can be found on the instrument panel, door casings, carpet mats, armrest, multi-function steering wheel, split-fold rear seat and standard 14-way electric front seats.
The rear-wheel drive 300 SPORT features Jaguar Land Rover’s 221kW/400Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The combination means the XE can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 5.7 seconds.
Standard on all Jaguar XE models including the 300 SPORT, Torque Vectoring by Braking helps to maximise control through corners by providing controlled independent braking on the individual inside front and rear wheels. The system delivers outstanding sports car-like agility and added driver confidence.
Also standard on all XEs, All Surface Progress Control is a low speed cruise control that helps with low traction situations in all weather conditions so that drivers can concentrate on steering, while JaguarDrive Control allows drivers to select various drive modes at the touch of a finger. Settings range from Dynamic with faster gear shifts and sportier kickdowns to Eco with earlier upshifts and more efficient transmission programmes.
