India-bound Jaguar XE gets all-wheel-drive and other new features

The coming-soon-to India Jaguar XE has received an extensive update of features for the 2017 model year. Leading the feature list is the XE’s new torque on-demand all-wheel drive (AWD) system, which will be made available exclusively with the 180 PS Ingenium diesel and the 340 PS supercharged V6 petrol engines fitted with eight-speed automatic transmissions. To maintain the XE’s driver’s car status, the AWD transfers the torque to the front wheels only when needed, keeping up the rear wheel drive character.
