They might not have as complete a model range as Mercedes, but Jaguar more than makes up for the shortcomings with soul. The British brand behind the beautiful and elegant F-Type coupe has announced the Feel XE campaign, which is essentially a teaser for the upcoming compact executive sedan that will be shown on September 8th.
Until that day, British artist Emeli Sande will work on a special song inspired by the emotions of both Jaguar and Great Britain. She's asking for your support in doing this, which you can show by giving her suggestions through the Twitter hashtag #FEELXE. This really is a unique way to show a car and Jaguar deserve to be commended for it.

The performance will take place at a secret location on the banks of the river Thames and will culminate in the reveal of the new sedan model. Jaguar to also collaborate on certain projects with British designer Stella McCartney and actor Idris Elba for FEEL XE on separate performances.

Besides actually showing the car itself, there's actually something really interesting about the teaser photo. Noticed it? There's an S badge on the grille, which means this is a sleek performance version. We believe that the XE S will be powered by one of the 3-liter supercharged V6 engines offered in the F-Type. These are brand new mills, launched in 2012, and offer a sonorous exhaust note accompanied by either 340 or 380 horsepower.

Based on a state-of-the-art platform, the XE is expected to be the first aluminum monocoque product in the segment. It will be powered by a new range of Jaguar Land Rover engines, modeled around a common 0.5-liter cylinder, sharing the same bore, stroke, cylinder spacing and internal components. A class-leading 2-liter diesel has already been announced and promises to offer class-leading figures.
