Jaguar is a little bit like Mercedes in that they aren't very good at making small engines. It's just one of the reasons why the Germans are even topping them in sales back in Britain.
The automaker's incursion into the small executive sedan segment resulted in the launch of the X-Type. They tried to hide what it really was with all-wheel drive and big engines, but you know what they say… you can take the Jaguar out of Ford, but you can't take the Ford out of a Jaguar.

Now, Jaguar is getting back in the fight with another small executive sedan, this time based on their own aluminum architecture. The model will sit in the range under the XF and reports indicate it really will be called the "XS", despite the humorous nature of the name.

JLR is currently developing a whole new family of efficient four-cylinder engines, both diesel and petrol, which together with ZF's 8-speed auto should deliver a splendid alternative to the BMW 3 Series or Mercedes C-Class.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
