Jaguar has already made the global debut of their new sedan and we definitely said this before and it came true that their new sedan heavily borrows its design clues from the already available XF sedan. The new 2015 XE sedan which will be on sale in the International market from the year 2015 onward will be a proper driver’s car in the mid-size segment and has a long wheelbase, lower seating position which actually gives it a streamlined Coupe like profile.
At the front you will really love what you see, the strongly sculpted bonnet gives a muscular appearance, while the sharp headlamps looks similar to what you will also find in the other Jaguar sedans the front headlamps are further highlighted by the signature J-Blade running lights. Jaguar has always been known for creating impressive aerodynamic cars and this XE is not different, this XE only has drag coefficient figures of 0.26 which is also pretty impressive. According to Ian Callum the XE sedan bears a strong family resemblance to the F-TYPE. Towards the rear of the sedan the XE looks much more like the XF sedan with those huge tail lamps and the integrated lip spoiler. While the duel exhaust and diffuser further adds to the good looks of the car.Check for Jaguar XE in Jsrr
