Driving your Jaguar in Winter​

Jaguar Approved Winter Tyres

For optimum grip on a range of challenging winter surfaces, your Jaguar Retailer will be able to recommend and supply winter tyres* designed to meet the high performance requirements of your Jaguar. Manufactured from materials for use below 7°C to minimise wear and maximise grip, they feature 1,500 sipes (grooves) to repel snow, water, ice and slush. Compared to standard tyres, stopping distances can be reduced by up to 59%: Find Jaguar Winter Tyres


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.**


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.


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.

All Wheel Drive

All wheel drive has become an increasingly popular option, and for many it is the deciding factor in their choice of car. From AWD hatchbacks and AWD saloons, to AWD SUVs and AWD sports cars, the range of vehicles that offer it is vast. But what is AWD, and why is it useful?

All wheel drive gives the driver increased confidence on any road surface and in all weather. The system spreads the power from the engine to all four wheels, instead of just two, providing increased grip. From loose gravel surfaces in mid summer to icy winter roads, all wheel drive cars offer greater stability and control.

The system is always active and works continuously without the need for the driver to switch from two wheel to all wheel drive. All wheel drive isn’t just safer, its superior traction delivers more dynamic handling and greater composure when engaged in more spirited driving.

Every car in the Jaguar range is available as all wheel drive. Our flagship luxury saloon, the XJ, is offered with Torque-On-Demand AWD. All our other cars, the F‑TYPE, XE, XF and the F‑PACE, are fitted with our innovative and unique Intelligent Driveline Dynamics AWD. Both systems are engineered so that in normal driving conditions, 90% of the torque is committed to the back wheels. This ensures that every one of our AWD cars retains Jaguar’s dynamic rear wheel drive feel for a more enjoyable driving experience.

When the systems detect that more traction is needed, they seamlessly transfer as much torque as is required to the front wheels to improve stability. The systems are constantly working to find the optimum balance of traction and performance, so the moment they establish that additional traction is no longer required, power is returned to the rear axle.
