Video: Jaguar XS Sedan Hits the Track

The upcoming Jaguar XS sedan was recently filmed testing at the infamous Nurburgring for the very first time, seemingly being propelled by a small, turbocharged four-cylinder engine based on the unattractive engine noise it’s producing!

On first glance in fact, the 2016 Jaguar XS prototype featured here looks almost identical to the current XF. However, upon closer inspection it’s substantially shorter and features a narrower stance while also being far lower to the ground to lower the center of gravity. Additionally, this Jaguar XS prototype sports slightly an unfinished rear-end exposing different exhaust pipes.

Due to the Jaguar XS featuring a body very similar to the Jaguar XF, it’s possible that the small sedan will utilise the platform of the XF. Furthermore, Jaguar could also use its Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) constructed of aluminium. This system is so flexible and versatile that it actually made its debut in the 2013 Range Rover.

Under the hood, the 2016 Jaguar XS will be offered with the some of the engines present in the XF as well as the Jaguar F-Type. However, it’ll also be available with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder powertrain developing 240hp with a 380hp, 3.0-liter supercharged V6 set to be the range-topping engine. Rear-wheel drive will be standard in the 2016 Jaguar XS but an all-wheel drive system will be offered at additional costs.
