Towards the end of last year, we were given the great news that the Jaguar XE 300 SPORT special edition is now available in South Africa.
With a unique combination of exterior design details and interior trim, the presence and the roar of the Jaguar XE 300 SPORT can tame any road it hits. The best part? We can now experience it for ourselves.
Hello, Good Looking
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to customising your 300 SPORT. 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 callipers get 300 SPORT branding.
Take a Look Inside
Sitting in the lap of luxury doesn’t get better than this. It’s the perfect harmony of sports car and luxury sedan. 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.
Under the Hood
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 0-100km/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 Jaguar drive 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.
Priced for The Win
The XE 300 SPORT is available in South Africa priced from R792 800, including VAT but excluding CO2 charges. Visit www.jaguar.co.za for more information.
