2015 Jaguar XS (X760): first details revealed

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 21, 2013

As part of Jaguar’s plan to expand its market share throughout the world, it will add a new “baby” Jaguar to its lineup to go up against the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. There are speculations that the smaller Jaguar, which uses the codename X760, will carry the XS badge when it becomes available.

At the start, the XS will be sold as a conventional four-door sedan in 2015. It will then add a crossover variant in 2016. The XS will be built using Jaguar Land Rover’s new Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA), which was seen first on the new 2013 Range Rover. An all-new XF is expected to arrive in the later part of 2014 before the launch of the XS.

It will shift over to PLA from the old Ford DEW98 platform it presently uses. The same underpinnings will be used by the XS and XF. They will also use some of the same powertrains like the 2.0-liter turbo-four and 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 engines as well as offer the option of either rear- or all-wheel drive. It’s obviously an XS mule and not the next XF since it is a lot shorter than a standard XF.

The rear doors appear to be slightly shorter and the door handles have slightly moved forward. Through the false grille, there’s an intercooler that is far from the supposed front clip of this car. The riveted-together bumper curves under significantly to arrive at the exhaust. This car’s track of is also considerably shorter than the body panels.
