I really hope that the XE is NOT a parts bin car, because it will get slated if it is, under the skin, share what you want, outside, has to be new, by doing otherwise, it will fail, and BMW, and Mercedes will be laughing all the way to the sales figures.
This car, is the one that will make or break the company, thats how important it is, Jaguar cant exist on 70k units a year, they have to expand and they have got to do it right, I feel they will, there will styling nods to F and XF, but i just hope no direct usages.
No I dont think anyone is expecting a direct share of head or tail lamps, but a design language is a design language. The Germans don't get to laugh at anyone design wise, especially not with their sterile lemon enema approach to style.
Look up and down Audi and BMW's lineup, each vehicle is a copy of a copy of a copy. Gingerbread cookie cutters...
Just noticed this but is there a hitch receiver on the back of this XE mule?
It does... Its likely for internal benchmarks, that or consider that the CX17 (production name yet??) is expected to share engines, chassis and AWD with XE. So likely Jaguar is getting two birds stoned at once...
That's what I was thinking. It doesn't really seem like the type of car that I would try to tow something with. And anyone who can afford a Jaguar should be able to afford a proper vehicle to do some towing if they need it.
