Design of the much-awaited Jaguar's 3 Series rival has been completed now. Ian Callum, Jaguar design Director while talking to Autocar UK sajd “they finished design work of the company’s upcoming BMW 3 Series rivaling sedan". According to him, the design of the sedan would follow the current design trends of Jaguar.
Design of the sub-XF sedan is based on Jaguar's new iQ aluminium architecture, which was earlier used in the company's C-X17 SUV concept. The new sedan will feature a three-dimensional front end and trapezoidal grille design introduced on the F-type, a clamshell bonnet with twin power bulges and a sporty yet graceful profile.
Jaguar officials told media that the rear-wheel drive sedan would offer superior performance and driving dynamics, and would be powered by a new family of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. These engines will be developed at Jaguar’s new engine facility in Wolverhampton, UK, while the car would be built at Jaguar Land Rover's Solihull plant.
Codenamed as X760, the 3-Series rival could be unveiled as a concept car at the Paris motor show next October, and after that, the production model may make its presence at the Geneva show in March 2015.
