It looks a bit too much like the XF. I would have preferred a fresher design.

Saw this on the Jaguar FB Page. Apparently it's the first aluminium monocoque car in its class.

Impressive! And I really like the new toned down LED DRL strip. Looks very elegant. The one in current XF is tackiness in bold letters.

Handsome, sporty lines. Every bit a Jaguar. This baby is going to set the cash register ringing for JLR! Just cannot wait to see it in flesh.

Default Jaguars new premium sedan to be named XE

Jaguar has announced the name of its new mid-sized premium sports sedan as the Jaguar XE.

Name:  Jaguar XE high res new.jpg
Views: 1235
Size:  22.1 KB

The XE will be the first aluminium monocoque product in the segment. This aluminium architecture was showcased for the first time in the C-X17 concept car at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2013 which is configured to suit in-line and transverse installations for rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations.

The new petrol and diesel engines will be named Ingenium, which will be four-cylinder two-litre petrol and diesel variants. These will be built at Jaguar Land Rover's new UK Engine Manufacturing Facility. Engine is expected to be tuned for top speeds of over 300km/h, and emissions lower than 100g of CO2 per km.

Global rollout for the XE will begin in 2015. Technical details and variants will be revealed later in 2014.

Link to news article.
