Mounted in front of the rear-view mirror, the forward-facing stereo camera can detect vehicles up to 100 metres away. If no action is taken, full braking force is triggered automatically: the AEB system enables collision avoidance or mitigation at speeds up to 80km/h. If the algorithms in the AEB control module determine that a collision is likely, the brake system is pre-charged and the driver receives a visual warning in the instrument cluster and, if fitted, the head-up display.
With CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km, the XE attracts low levels of vehicle taxation in many countries – and is even exempt in others. Subscribe now to make sure you’re in on all the action. The XE is powered by a range of four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines offering a blend of performance, refinement and efficiency from 99g/km CO2 to 250km/h. Jaguar saloons have always been renowned for their matchless combination of sublime ride comfort and outstanding driving dynamics. The engine, although muted compared with the F-Type, produces a distinct baritone note at idle
By networking the headlight modules to the camera’s image processing algorithms, the high beam assist function will automatically dip the beams when oncoming traffic is detected. The stereo camera can also help the driver to see more clearly: intelligent control of the headlights enables greater use of high beam, making night driving safer.
The almost infinite range of possibilities it provides in fine tuning has enabled us to achieve the responsive, connected steering feel we require in a Jaguar – without compromise. “The introduction of electric power steering was a big step but one we were able to take confidently. ” Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar.
