This isn’t the first time we’re hearing about an entry-level Jaguar, but here are some official details on the upcoming Jaguar model. According to Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar’s Global Brand Director, the sub-£30,000 premium vehicle market is ‘four times the size’ of the market for sedans priced above £30,000 – making an entry-level Jaguar very essential.
Sources inside the company say that the model will be slightly smaller than the XF sedan but will still be big enough to fit 5 adults. No word on whether the car will be build on an aluminum platform, but the next XF will almost certainly be made from aluminum.

Jaguar has also confirmed that an all-wheel-drive version of the large XJ sedan is currently under development. The model is expected to be launched in under 24 months.
Jag believes that although all-wheel-drive models only account for 20 percent of all cars sold in the United States, the proportion moves up to 70 percent in Northern ‘snowbelt’ states where Jaguar has had strong sales.
