Jaguar is a car manufacturer that is known for their great luxury and sport cars and as a brand with rich history, but, just like every other company, they have struggled with finances and for a while they were not able to produce a new model or to unveil a decent upgrade for some of their iconic cars from the past. However, things are about to change – with new ownership Jaguar is redefining itself with next-generation models and even some completely new cars. One of these completely new cars is the 2016 Jaguar XS Sedan.
2016 Jaguar XS Exterior
There are no official images of the 2016 Jaguar XS Sedan, but some spy shots suggest that this car will be fairly similar to the recently unveiled Jaguar XF. However, there is one significant difference – the XS or “child” Jaguar as some call it is going to compete with BMW 3-series, Mercedes-Benz C-class and Audi A4.
Since all new Jaguars have similar design, it is safe to expect a large chrome grille on the front along with the new LED daylights and projector headlights. If the design of the 2016 Jaguar XS Sedan is more close to the XF than any other Jaguar, we should expect practically the same car, but the XS should be significantly smaller. Spy shots that have been published on the web show exactly that – a car that is very similar to the XF, but smaller.
Interior of Jaguar XS
When it comes to the design of the cabin of the all-new 2016 Jaguar XS Sedan, we should expect similar features and design to the other Jaguar models. This is something that Jaguar has been doing for a while now – their models are very different on the outside, but on the inside they have used similar design.
Some of the parts that are practically the same in all new Jaguars are: steering wheel (the three spikes, sporty steering wheel with shiny Jaguar logo is practically the trademark of their interior design), analog speedometer and tachometer, seats with leather upholstery (their seats are already great, so there is really no need to design a completely new seats, just modify them for different vehicles) and infotainment system. The center of the dashboard is dominated by a large touch screen display, used for satellite navigation, music and control of all the parts of the infotainment system.
The 2016 Jaguar XS Sedan is going to compete with fierce competitors in a demanding market section, so the engines that the company is going to offer with this model should be one of the reasons to choose XS. At this moment, the base model of the 2016 Jaguar XS Sedan is going to come with 2.0l 4-cylinder petrol engine, that should produce around 240 horsepower (this engine will be supercharged) and it will come with eight speed automatic transmission. When the company officially unveils the car, we should know more about possible engine choices for this model.
