The British based automaker Jaguar is planning to introduce a successor of the X-Type in a couple of months, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Jaguar seems to be doing good these days and the problems have been left aside long ago. The company is well seen, its newest model, the F-Type, is highly appreciated and now the carmaker wants to take advantage of this wave and introduce a successor of the X-Type during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, in September. The model in question should be named the Jaguar XS and it should get an engine lineup with 4 and 6 cylinders. More details on the Jaguar XS are limited for the moment and will be announced in Frankfurt.

As a quick reminder, the Jaguar X-Type has been in production between 2001 and 2009 and it was assembled in Halewood, England. The model was sold as a compact executive car in 4-door sedan and 5-door estate body styles, with a front engine and a front- / all-wheel drive layout. The X-Type had a variety of 3 petrol engines and two diesels, mated to four transmissions, two automatic, with 5- and 6-speed, and two manual, with the same amount of gears.
