Currently reading: Jaguar XE and XF complete R-Dynamic Black line-up
Saloons follow F-Type, E-Pace, F-Pace and I-Pace with bespoke styling cues and added kit

The Jaguar Jaguar XE and Jaguar XF are now available in range-topping R-Dynamic Black specification, bringing bespoke design elements, added equipment and improved connectivity. 

The Jaguar XF will gain the package for the first time with prices starting at £37,535, while the Jaguar XE will receive an improved Black specification, from £33,470. 

The firm says the models offer “an even more confident, assured and purposeful presence”, with an “unrivalled balance of outstanding ride, handling, refinement and luxury together with a focused range of powerful, efficient and electrified powertrains".

Both models are powered by Jaguar’s 201bhp mild-hybrid diesel engine, with the XE capable of 0-62mph in 5.6sec and the XF 5.8sec, with economy of up to 58.9mpg.

A panoramic roof, privacy glass and black 19in wheels with red brake calipers all feature. Both saloons are fitted with darker-coloured interiors with light seats and bright metal pedals. The firm says additional equipment options are not available for the R-Dynamic Black specification level.

The two models are equipped with Jaguar’s Pivi Pro infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and will also benefit from over-the-air software updates in the future.

The larger XF gains a gloss black finish applied to the door mirror caps, sills, grille, window surrounds, fender vents and rear badges, with black roof bars available on Sportbrake models. Inside, the XF gains an enhanced lighting system with a choice of 30 different colours. 

The XE R-Dynamic Black receives an improved exterior paint selection, including Firenze Red, Bluefire, Eiger Grey, Santorini Black and new Ostuni White. The XE and XF are also both equipped with cabin ionisation technology to filter the air inside the car, while the XF benefits from Active Road Noise Cancellation.

Both great cars that deserve to be selling in far higher numbers than they are. Great looks, class leading dynamics, and now much more modern interiors; what's not to like? Oh, and they are now bargins (and more P11d efficient) thanks to big list price reductions.

I'll bet those performance figures are for the p300 versions and Autocar have mixed them up.

Probably will be a used car bargain in a few years time. The interior of the XF has come on leaps and bounds. The VW Group interior quality has been decreasing for a few years now.

I don't think another few bits of shiny black plastic will turn round these cars sales figures at this stage in their life and claims of 5.8 sec 0-60 from 201bhp and 58mpg in what is a near 2 tonne car (XF sportbrake), isn't credible unless it is down a 1:3 slope.

The XE and XF have had their time now (arguably the XE was stillborn anyway) and need to be cast out. What Jaguar replace them with, well we have yet to be amazed by Mr Bollores plans.
