The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace Wins European Car of the Year at the Geneva Motor Show
The 2020 Jaguar XE is the facelift version of the compact sedan that the British company unveiled in 2015. Aimed at premium four-door cars like the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Audi A4, the XE is the spiritual successor of the X-Type, discontinued in 2009. The 2020 Jaguar XE features a sportier exterior, a revised interior with new technology, and provides better value in certain trims.
Launched in 2015, the XE was starting to fall behind the competition. The BMW 3 Series is brand-new for 2019, while the Audi A4 is a bit newer. With Mercedes-Benz having upgraded the C-Class for 2018, the XE remained the oldest of the four, so this facelift was more than necessary. Sportier than before, the XE now offers extra standard equipment and notably more technology. The engine lineup remains unchanged aside from a revised diesel mill that complies with upcoming emission restrictions.
2020 Jaguar XE Shows New Face and Changes Diesel Lineup Ahead of Geneva Debut
Jaguar knew that while it did get the driving experience right in its XE baby executive sedan, there were many other areas that could have been significantly improved. Now that the time has come for the XE’s midlife cycle refresh, the automaker has addressed these concerns and now promises its smallest three-box model is far more well-rounded and just better overall.

With a $70k Price Tag, the Jaguar I-Pace Could be Devastating for the More-Expensive Tesla Model X
Fresh off of making its public debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar I-Pace now has a price to go with the name and the face. Jag’s new electric crossover has now been priced at $69,500 in the U.S., and that’s before local and federal government incentives. Proving that it’s more than just a fancy Jaguar with an all-electric powertrain, the I-Pace can now be had at a price tag that’s $10,000 cheaper than the model Jaguar used as its benchmark: the Tesla Model X.

The Jaguar I-Pace is Set to Debut on March 1st!
A little over a year after introducing the Jaguar I-Pace Concept, the British automaker is all set to unveil the production version of the same model. The live reveal will take place on March 1 at 1:00 P.M. Eastern Time. Jaguar will be live-streaming the festivities straight from its production facility in Graz, Austria. From there, the I-Pace will make the trip to Geneva, Switzerland where it will make its public debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Set those alarm clocks ready because Jag’s first-ever electric vehicle is ready to roll.
2019 Jaguar I-Pace
Jaguar entered a new era in 2013 when it launched the F-Type and regained the sporty and innovative spirit it had lost in recent decades. The British company made another big step into the future in 2015, when the F-Pace became the first SUV to wear the "Cat" logo. In 2016, Jaguar unveiled yet another crossover, this time around in the shape of an all-electric crossover. Dubbed I-Pace, it previewed the company’s first-ever battery-powered production model. Come 2018, and the I-Pace made its debut as the brand’s first production model to work on electricity alone.
Unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, the I-Pace concept was loosely based on the F-Pace styling-wise but ditched Jaguar’s already familiar four-cylinder, V-6, and V-8 powerplants for a pair of electric motors and a battery pack. Less than 18 months later and the concept morphed (without too many changes) into a production car that will probably tackle the Tesla Model X on the premium market. Designed from the outset as an electric vehicle and described as a smart five-seater that’s "a performance car, a family car, and an SUV all in one," the I-Pace brings to fruition the electrification process that the company began back in 2010 with the C-X75 concept. What’s it all about? Let’s find out in the review below.

2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR Coupe
Ever since Jaguar Land Rover established the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division, there have been rumors of a full lineup of performance vehicles ranging from sports cars to SUVs. Naturally, the Jaguar F-Type was expected to get the most attention, especially since SVO already created the 2015 Jaguar F-Type Project 7. Spy shots from 2014 suggested an SVR-badged model is also underway, in both coupe and convertible body styles.
While the drop-top has been spotted stretching its legs on public roads more than once in 2014, the coupe didn’t come out to play until 2015, when our tenacious paparazzi caught it in action somewhere in Europe. Now, Jaguar confirmed that the F-Type SVR is set to make its global debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and released the official photos and technical details, putting an end to more than a year of intense speculation about the range-topping F-Type model.
Find out what this hardcore F-Type is all about in the review below and stay tuned for live photos from the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in a couple of weeks.

2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR
Back in late 2014, we heard a rumor Jaguar was busy creating a new range-topping F-Type. Sure enough, it wasn’t long before spy shots of the beefed-up two-door surfaced online. Motoring Australia then reported an Aussie dealership had assembled a list of customers eager to grab the faster cat as soon as it was launched. More spy shots followed, this time from a test session at the Nurburgring. Then came a leaked brochure filled with specs, and now, the new F-Type is finally confirmed, bringing less weight, more power, and improved aero, plus a topless body style to boot. Say hello to the F-Type SVR Roadster.
If you were unaware, the SVR stands for SVO/R. The “R” is pretty self-explanatory within the context of sports-car nomenclature, but I’ll explain SVO for the uninitiated. It’s an acronym that stands for Special Vehicle Operations, the team of hired-gun engineers responsible for making Jaguar Land Rover vehicles especially fast. You may remember SVO as the party responsible for creating the truly outrageous Range Rover Sport SVR.
So then, what happens when SVO applies its high-performance know-how to a sports car? Four words – fastest production Jag ever. Extra atmosphere optional.
Updated 02/17/2016: Jag finally gave us the official details on the F-Type SVR a few weeks in advance of its debut in Geneva. Pricing starts at $128,800 for the roadster.

In the world of supercar-powerful wagons, there are very few names. Machines like the now-ancient Volvo 850R have given way to the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon, Audi RS6 and the Mercedes E63 AMG, but that still only represents three models out of the hundreds of cars available worldwide.
It now seems that there will be four insane wagons vying for your cash now, as Jaguar has just officially announced the XFR-S Sportsbrake.
The behatched version of the XFR-S uses the same supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that is tuned to the sweet sound of 543 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. That means the 60 mph mark blows by in 4.6 seconds and the top speed rings in at 186 mph.
There is a dark cloud to this silver lining though. Just like the Sportbrakes that have come before, this Jag is not for U.S. consumption. Even if I won’t see them on US roads, I still praise Jaguar for putting their biggest engine into a wagon to begin with.

We absolutely just love talking about wagons that we’ll never get to see on our side of the pond. Wait, scratch that. It actually sucks to hear that Jaguar has finally unveiled the XF Sportbrake and Europe will be one of the few that will actually revel in its luxurious five door space. It’s not their fault that the British brand is going where the wagon demand is at its highest nor that we decided bigger was better before giving these in-between vehicles a chance, but we’re still a little envious.
The XF Sportbrake was supposed to make its world debut in March at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, but Jaguar decided to offer the first details one week before the actual event. While the car’s front is identical to the sedan version, the new XF Sportbrake is entirely new from the B-pillar and back. Under the hood, Jaguar has placed a range of four-cylinder 2.2-liter and V6 3.0-liter diesel engines with power going up to 275 HP.
UPDATE 08/08/12: Jaguar has released a video explaining the versatility of the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake. Check out the video to see just how much can fit into the back of this spacious ride!

Italian coach builder, Bertone, rarely makes waves, but when they do, they have a propensity to just take your breath away. Incidentally, the last we heard from these guys was when they unveiled the Jaguar B99 Concept at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
Now, Bertone returns to Geneva with a new concept in tow, one that’s being called the "Concept Nuccio." Making things extra special this year is the fact that Bertone is celebrating their centennial anniversary, and to commemorate this huge milestone, they came to Geneva locked, stocked, and ready to rock.
The concept was named ’Nuccio’ in honor of Nuccio Bertone, the son of company patriarch Giovanni Bertone. It was designed as an evolution of the company’s "cab forward" that started with the 1967 Alfa Romeo Carabo, the 1970 Lancia Stratos Zero, and the 1973 Lamborghini Countach. The concept combines elements from the three concepts in an attempt to create a modern, sporty, and "extreme," fully functional sports car.
UPDATE 03/08/2012: This review has been updated with the official details and images of the Bertone Concept Nuccio.
