2022 Jaguar XE price and specs

Jaguar’s smallest sedan will soldier-on in 2022 with two variants rather than three – and a new round of price rises.

  • 2022 Jaguar XE pricing and specifications
  • Entry-level SE variant axed
  • Turbo-petrol engine and all-wheel drive standard
  • Priced from $68,679 before on-road costs

The 2022 Jaguar XE range has been cut from three to two variants in Australia – accompanied by price rises that came into effect at the start of the year.

The base-model XE R-Dynamic SE variant has been dropped for 2022, leaving the R-Dynamic Black and flagship R-Dynamic HSE – after Jaguar’s mid-size sedan range was streamlined from 15 variants three years ago.

Prices have risen for 2022 by between $3479 and $3975 – though metallic paint, previously a $1400 option, is now standard.

Compared to price guides released for Model Year 2021 (MY21), new features for Model Year 2022 (MY22) include a panoramic sunroof and privacy glass for the R-Dynamic Black, and matrix LED headlights for the R-Dynamic HSE.

However, some features are believed to have been removed; including the lower Touch Pro Duo screen and 16-way power front seats (swapped with 12-way seats) in the HSE, and the deletion of the 3D surround-view camera.

Following the axing of petrol V6 and diesel four-cylinder power in 2019, all XEs are powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, sending 221kW and 400Nm to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Jaguar claims a 5.9-second 0-100km/h sprint time, 250km/h top speed, and a combined fuel economy claim of 6.9 litres per 100 kilometres (with a 61.7-litre fuel tank).

Standard features across the range include 19-inch wheels, a 10-inch infotainment touchscreen, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, Meridian sound system, LED headlights and tail-lights, and a selection of advanced safety features including autonomous emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring.

Unique to the R-Dynamic Black is a Black Exterior Pack as standard – which includes a black grille, black window and grille surrounds, and black front quarter vents – plus a boot lip spoiler and red brake calipers.

Stepping up to the R-Dynamic HSE adds matrix LED headlights, genuine Windsor leather upholstery, side mirror and driver’s seat memory, adaptive cruise control, and unique wheels – at the cost of the R-Dynamic Black’s unique styling elements.

With metallic paint now standard from 1 January 2022, the only colours offered at an additional cost are Carpathian Grey and Silicon Silver premium metallics, for an extra $1300.

The revised 2022 Jaguar XE range is available to order now.
