DRIVING YOUR JAGUAR IN WINTER
Every journey in your Jaguar should be as exhilarating as the first, regardless of the season. To keep your Jaguar performing at its peak throughout the winter, follow this advice from our experts to help protect you and your car.
JAGUAR APPROVED WINTER TYRES
For maximum grip and minimum wear over challenging winter surfaces, Jaguar winter tyres are specially designed for the high performance requirements of your Jaguar. They are manufactured from materials suitable for use below 7°C, and feature 1,500 sipes (grooves) to repel snow, water, ice and slush. Compared to standard tyres, stopping distance can be reduced by up to 59%. For more information, and to purchase Jaguar approved winter tyres, contact you nearest retailer.
JAGUAR TYRE HOTEL
Jaguar Retailers can organise the secure storage of your summer tyres in one of our regional tyre hotels to maintain their condition throughout the winter months, whilst handling the fitting of your winter tyres.
TRACTION AIDS FOR JAGUAR TYRES
To keep you safe when the surface is at its worst, we recommend you invest in either the easily-fitted, textile Snow Sock Winter Traction Aid, that fits to all four wheels to improve grip, or the Snow Traction System snow chains, which are fitted to the back wheels only.
JAGUAR WINTER HEALTH CHECK
InControl Protect includes a clever Remote Smartphone App, Optimised Jaguar Assistance and SOS Emergency Call. Through the smartphone app you can check your fuel levels, find your vehicle in a busy car park and even check you haven't left your windows open. In the event of a breakdown, Optimised Jaguar Assistance transmits location and vehicle diagnostic data to your recovery company. If the incident is more serious, SOS Emergency Call notifies the emergency services of your location.
Enjoy winter with season specific accessories, from ski racks and snowboard holders, to loadspace liners and rubber mats. Choose from the Style, Sporting, Touring or Outdoor Accessory Lifestyle Collections and personalise your Jaguar to suit your needs. Only Jaguar Trained Technicians fit our accessories, and they come with a 24-month unlimited mileage warranty.
