Jaguar XE hits the Ring image

The brand new BMW 3-Series fighter, the Jaguar XE, has been recently tested out on the Nurburgring, where our spy photographers managed to capture it on camera.

The Jaguar XE has been already announced and even teased but this is probably the first time when we get to see it in action. The photos posted below have been snapped on the famous German track, the Nurburgring, where the model has been recently tested out. It will be riding on the iQ[Al] platform and it will get shorter front and rear overhangs along with a more compact body in order to go up against the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the BMW 3-Series, the Audi A4 and other models in the segment.

A frugal version of the Jaguar XE is planned and this is said to have less than 100 g/km of CO2 emissions, but a more powerful variant, which will enable it to reach a maximum speed of 300 km/h is also in the books. The Jaguar XE is the spiritual successor of the X-Type and it’s believed to be officially unveiled this summer, with deliveries starting at the beginning of next year. More details on the model remain unknown for the moment.
