Been trying to find information on what the Jaguar XE interior will look like and it seems like there's nothing out yet. Since the XE is going to be completely new to Jaguar in a segment completely new to them, what can we expect the interior design and layout to be like?

Here's a look at the 2014 Jaguar XF interior, which I really like and hope the XE will have some design cues from it.

you forgot the pic @Kingpin! or maybe its just not showing for me?

XF




XJ




F-Type




XK




I'd like to see a blend of the F-Types sporty appointments with the XJ's refinement..

Some influence from the F-Type is a must. It seems to be part of their design design language and not just something for the F-Type. We need some interior spy shots

I expect to see XJ influences, with the XJ steering wheel a given, along with the totally digital dash, as seen on the XJ, a totally new user interface, as the current XF one is so tired and slow, it has become a bit of a joke.

A more race inspired interior, with leather and wood as options, I am hoping that auto will be standard across the range with a manual available, I am also hoping that the interior will be less cluttered, with more being controlled via the central UI, similar to how Peugeot are doing, and very successfully, now.

I have to say I have my doubts about a Manual option. I would think from a brand perspective it may look piss poor to NOT offer an MT on F-Type yet offer it on your entry level sedan.

Although I do suppose Jag has some time to debut an MT for F-Type before we even glimpse the XE...

In the UK it would be a better option to have a Manual, especially in the business sector this car is aimed squarely at.. But elsewhere, Autos are seen as a necessity and Manual is seen as a poor mans choice.

At least car guys know that if someone has a manual, they're likely some true car enthusiast that wants to make the most of their ride!

You can have a semi auto, the paddles on my current car give me the same options as having a gear stick, and the change is quicker too !

That does help and it's the closest thing to a the 3 pedal and manual gear box setup most of us want, still nothing like having that 3rd pedal and slamming through those gears.

With the paddles it helps to have a more engaging feel

It is a nice place to be, and you feel well closeted inside, and for those of a rather rotund nature, it is a little too closeting, and getting in and out is a bit of an event too... LOL

the rest of the jaguar interiors will need to be updated to 2014 like the F Type

its got the most updated designed interior.
I would like to see design cues pulled from the F-Type interior but not it exactly, it would be cool if they can keep the F-Type interior design unique to itself.

well the f-type design cues to the future of jaguar interior designs

it wont look exactly like a f type interior

but its like any other manufacturer who comes out with a refreshed design on a popular model

it shows you what the next generation of said brand interiors are going to be like .

Yup you're right. Im sure they want to keep some design cues unique to the coupe but still pull some of it off for other cars, the F-Type basically shows a lot of Jag's future design. Looking forward to seeing how they rework it for the XE and even for their future SUV

I like the F-Type interior better than the other one. Since this is a cheaper model in the lineup though, I think that Jaguar might make up some cost by cutting a few small corners in the interior.

That cost cutting is expected on the basemodel and lower trims, but what they do to the XE-R will be interesting.
