As compared to the outgoing model, the new XE sedan comes with a revised styling inspired by the F-Type sports car and the pure-electric I-Pace SUV siblings.

The rear end of the car also features a new bumper, a revamped diffuser and updated Hi-line taillights with dynamic turn indicators. The refreshed XE sedan’s 17-inch alloy wheels sport a new design as well.

The updates are a lot more extensive inside the cabin of the Jaguar XE facelift. As soon as you step inside, you’ll notice a completely new dashboard layout which looks way more sophisticated. A larger 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system combined with an additional touchscreen for climate control dominates the dash while the fully-digital instrument cluster (for top-spec SE variant) gives the sedan a more upmarket appeal.

Mechanically, the 2020 Jaguar XE facelift still runs on the same set of engines, albeit in BSVI form. It gets the power from either a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine making 250 PS and 365 Nm of torque or a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel motor good for 180 PS and 430 Nm of torque. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic torque converter.
