Jaguar has updated its model range including the XE, XF and the F-Pace with new engine options and some features in the UK. One of the major change is that the company has replaced the current Inline four-cylinder engine, which is offered with the Jaguar XE, with the new Ingenium four-cylinder engine.

All three models are now powered by the new Ingenium twin turbocharged 2.0 litre petrol engine with two states of tune, 197 hp and 247 hp along with a 2.0 litre Ingenium twin-turbo diesel engine that develops 237 hp of power and 500 Nm of torque. The Jaguar F-Pace, on the other hand, also gets a new E-Performance diesel unit.

Both the Jaguar XE and XF sedans get additional safety equipment such as Forward Traffic Detection and Forward Vehicle Guidance available on Jaguar's Surround Camera System and the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems. The carmaker has also introduced a new app, through which drivers can pay fuel bills from the vehicle's touchscreen using Apple Pay, Android Pay or PayPal at Shell fuel stations. This new system will be available first in the UK market in the second half of 2017. The company has also offered the sedans with customisable driving modes as standard. The XE has also received a 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster with navigation.

Jaguar has added a new petrol version to the XE range, the Jaguar XE S, which is powered by a 2.0 litre Ingenium petrol engine that delivers 375 hp of power. The XE is also equipped with Configurable Dynamics with gesture-controlled boot lid.

The XF gets three new engine options - 2.0 litre petrol and diesel Ingenium units, a 2.0 litre petrol engine that develops 197 hp and is paired to an automatic gearbox and powers the rear wheels, and a new 2.0 litre petrol unit that makes 247 hp and has an all-wheel-drive system.
