Simply in case we needed more proof that Jaguar is working with a smaller sized, entry-level car, we spied a prototype of the 2015 Jaguar XS screening in the U.K.As was the case last time we found the 2015 Jaguar XS, the prototype auto is precisely a mish-mash of physical body parts from the alreadying existing Jaguar XF and the forthcoming smaller sized sedan.
Free gifts to the size decrease consist of the reality that the tires do not fill in the tire arcs, the back doors show up shorter compared to on a Jaguar XF, and there is a void between the side of the rocker panels and the front fenders. The trunklid also does not rest flush versus the rear fascia, and the XS’s taillights differ somewhat from those on a Jaguar XF.
The 2015 Jaguar XS will certainly be based on Jaguar Land Rover’s Premium Lightweight Architecture, which makes extensive usage of aluminum to cut weight. Codenamed X760, the XS will certainly be a slightly smaller car designed to compete with the likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. As soon as the car debuts in 2015, it is expected that the design will certainly generate a crossover version (possibly called XQ) a year later on.

The XS will likely share most of its reinforcements with the all-new Jaguar XF, which could debut later this year. The XF will move from its existing Ford-sourced DEW98 platform to the previously mentioned PLA– thus enabling Jaguar to quickly craft a somewhat smaller framework for the XS car. When it comes to exactly what will certainly power the XF and XS, we could possibly expect Jaguar to supply a 2.0-liter turbo-four and 3.0-liter supercharged V-6, with an option in between rear- and four-wheel drive.
Jaguar frantically should broaden its lineup and to produce a more budget-friendly entrance model in order to lure additional consumers. The luxury carmaker offered just 37,636 automobiles globally in the initial fifty percent of this year– throughout which time German rival Audi delivered 74,277 devices in the U.S. market alone. Despite the fact that Jaguar sales are up 29 percent year-over-year, the company clearly has a long way to go if it’s figured out to combat Audi, BMW, and Mercedes.
We anticipate that Jaguar will verify prepare for the smaller XS sedan, its crossover by-product, and the Jaguar XF next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
