Jaguar XE Landmark Edition arrives with sports trim and new 18in wheels
Jaguar has added a Landmark Edition to its XE range that gains bespoke 18in wheels and several sporty additions
High-ranking variant builds on R-Sport with new 18in wheels and perforated leather seats
Building on the already well equipped R-Sport model, the Landmark Edition, priced from £36,955, gets 10-spoke ‘Style 1049’ wheels that are unique to the variant, as well as sports bumpers and a rear spoiler.
A gloss black finish covers the door mirrors, front grille surround and side strakes, while the window surrounds are in this shade. The car comes with xenon headlights and rear parking sensors.
Inside, the car is equipped with perforated leather seats and gets Landmark Edition kick plates. Features shared with R-Sport include a 10.0in touchscreen with Jaguar’s Touch Pro infotainment system and sat-nav.
The Landmark Edition variant, which costs at least £2900 more than an R-Sport model, comes in a choice of three colours: Yulong White, Firenze Red and Santorini Black.
It is available with all of the XE’s engines apart from the 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel in 161bhp form and the 296bhp version of the 2.0-litre petrol.
All XE petrol models get a new particulate filter that can capture ultra-fine particles and oxidise them into CO2.
The Landmark Edition is the second new XE variant to arrive in a week, following the launch of the 300 Sport, a range-topping 296bhp all-wheel-drive model. This means Jaguar’s rival to the BMW 3 Series is now available in six variants.
