Jaguar is working on a broader range of its models. There is also a new X-Type on the schedule.
Currently, even though Jaguar is developing a competitor for the BMW 3-Series. Enough to distance themselves from the history of Jaguar design, the successor to the Jaguar X-Type will strongly resemble the current successful models from Jaguar, the Jaguar XF and Jaguar XJ. The new X-Type will also stand on an aluminum platform, the issue is completely up to date to be.
In terms of design, the X-Type a smaller version of the Jaguar XF. Back, the systems are slightly more rounded than those of the current XF. The combination of a light aluminum rear wheel drive platform and have the Jaguar X-Type a true drivers car, enjoying the best behavior in class should be present.
This operation will obviously cost a lot of money and Tata provides annual "only" 1 million pounds for research and development. The platform will also be used for the next generation Jaguar XF, XK and a new compact sports model. This would mean that the full range of Jaguar on an aluminum platform would be, well for consumption.
Under the hood, we the known 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine to find, we know of the Jaguar XF. An entry-level course should also have a smaller motor. Therefore we have to look at the 2.2-liter diesel engine that we find in the Land Rover Freelander. Later there would be an electric V6 diesel engine that should help. 47 hp electric motor that would be strong. The car was in an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission linked.
