Recent photos have confirmed rumours that Jaguar are working on a 3 series fighter. There have been rumours for some time but this is the first time that there has been some evidence.
The test car pictures does have XF fittings but some interesting things are clear to see. There are shorter doors, smaller rear, different exhaust and adjusted roofline which certainly leads to a conclusion that this is a smaller car. This could be called the XS and is expected to be much lighter. It will be on the Premium Lightweight Architecture platform and have many other weight saving features which will help it to be very light. It is expected to have supercharged six cylinder and turbocharged four cylinder powertrain options.
It is expected that this car will be on the market in 2015 and just after the new crossover will arrive. This will be a first for Jaguar as they have never had a crossover and this one is expected to be on the same platform as well as all-wheel drive.
