Jaguar began selling the new 2017 XE entry-level compact premium sedan in May of 2016. The brand’s new 5-seat luxury sedan—a welcome replacement for the former X-Type—is built on a lightweight, modular, mainly aluminum platform that allows Jaguar to pay full attention to performance, agility, handling, and ride—essential to Jaguar DNA.

Here are five fast facts about the 2017 Jaguar XE:

1) The mainly aluminum chassis provides a firm, precise ride with Jaguar precision tuning, handling, and braking systems, according to the automaker. Styling is thematic Jaguar: a long hood, athletic stance, and curves in the sheetmetal. When powered by a supercharged V-6 engine the XE can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds, Jaguar says. On the inside, the cabin has clean surfaces and new materials for seating and trim.
