The big news for Jaguar's sports car is the addition of available all-wheel drive and a manual transmission. For 2016, all-wheel drive is standard on F-Type R versions and optional on S models; the new six-speed manual transmission is available on rear-wheel-drive versions.

Aside from extra badging, all-wheel-drive 2016 F-Type coupes and convertibles get subtle exterior styling tweaks like a lightly reshaped hood that wears new vents positioned farther apart and farther forward than on the rear-wheel-drive version.

F-type-man

Competes with: Audi R8, Aston Martin Vantage, Porsche 911
Looks like: A 2015 F-Type with a new hood design and some distinctive body features for all-wheel-drive versions
Drivetrain: A 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, or a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 with the automatic, with output ranging from 340 to 550 horsepower and 332 to 502 pounds-feet of torque

Following the addition of the rear-wheel-drive F-Type coupe for 2015, Jaguar is further expanding the exotic sports car's offerings with all-wheel drive, standard on F-Type R versions and optional on S models, as well as an available six-speed manual transmission for rear-wheel-drive versions. The top-performing R models, in coupe or convertible form, boast a 5.0-liter, direct-injected supercharged V-8, which puts out a roaring 550-horsepower and Jaguar quotes a 3.9-second zero-to-60 mph time; it succeeds the outgoing rear-wheel-drive-only F-Type V-8 S, which made 495 hp.

2016 Jaguar XE S First Look

JaguarXE

Competes with: BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Cadillac ATS, Infiniti Q50, Lexus IS

Looks like: Somebody shrunk the Jaguar XF

Drivetrain: 340-hp, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6, eight-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive

Hits dealerships: 2016

Have a look at the most important car to come out of British luxury automaker Jaguar in decades — a compact, entry-level luxury sedan set to do battle with the heavy hitters in the segment, like the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4. This is the new 2015 XE, introduced to the world in its high-performance S trim, an aluminum-intensive rear-wheel-drive luxury car meant to continue the successes of the latest Jaguar XF and XJ sedans with a much higher volume segment.

The XE will go on sale in Europe first as the 2015 model shown here; the U.S. won't see the car until it arrives as a 2016 model, sometime in early 2016.

Can the 2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe Really Fit Two Golf Bags?

IMG_1310

Jaguar claims its 550-horsepower 2015 F-Type R Coupe is capable of reaching zero-to-60 mph in 4 seconds. Extremely easy to believe after mashing the throttle of the monstrous supercharged V-8 ourselves. We were skeptical, however, on another Jaguar claim.

The British automaker boasts that two golf bags can fit in the back of the coupe's narrow, 11 cubic feet of trunk space. The cargo space is no doubt more usable than the roadster's 7 cubic feet, but two golf bags?

Recall Alert: 2013-2014 Jaguar XF

2014JaguarXF

Vehicles Affected: More than 80 model-year 2013-14 Jaguar XF luxury sedans, including XFR-S variants, manufactured between July 2, 2013, and April 11, 2014

The Problem: A component within the power assist steering system may collapse and restrict fluid flow within the system hose, causing a loss of power steering; this increases the effort needed to steer, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Jaguar will begin notifying owners on Aug. 29, and dealers will install an improved hose for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Jaguar at 800-452-4827, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

Recall Alert: 2013-2015 Jaguar XK

2015JaguarXKRecall

Vehicles Affected: About 150 model-year 2013-15 Jaguar XK luxury sports cars, including XKR and XKR-S variants, manufactured between Aug. 24, 2012, and June 10, 2014, and equipped with a 5.0-liter engine

The Problem: The tire placard has incorrect info for the spare tire stating "none" for the inflation pressure of the spare wheel. If the recommended pressure is not provided, the tire may not be properly inflated, which may result in its failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Jaguar will begin notifying owners on Aug. 30, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and, if necessary, attach a corrected tire placard label stating the tire size and pressure, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Jaguar at 800-452-4827, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

Jaguar Releases New Photo of 3 Series-Fighter XE

Jaguar XE

Jaguar is whetting people's appetites for the all-new midsize XE with a glimpse of the 3 Series fighter poking its nose out of a building — the rest of the car is still under wraps. The recently released image isn't a very different angle from what we've already seen, though it shows a flesh and blood (aluminum and composite?) depiction instead of a heavily disguised rendering.

When it goes on sale in 2016, the aluminum-chassis XE will use a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines, plus offer a full range of engine choices with enough juice for one particular XE to top 186 mph.

Recall Alert: 2013-2014 Jaguar XF

2014JaguarXFRecall

Vehicles Affected: Nearly 70 model-year 2013-14 Jaguar XF luxury sedans manufactured between Oct. 18, 2012, and Feb. 25, 2014

The Problem: The right-hand brake pipe may wear against a bracket on the rear subframe, which could cause the brake pipe to wear through and leak brake fluid; this could lengthen braking distances, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Jaguar will notify owners starting July 29, and dealers will inspect the rear brake pipe for signs of wear, manipulate the bracket on the rear subframe, and inspect and replace the rear brake pipes if wear is visible. The automaker will make the repairs for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Jaguar at 855-524-8278, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov for more info.
