I really like the wide look of the XE on the pic with the two reporters!

Red would have been nice, it's one of their better colors.
This white looks so bland and like you said... no justice

It will be a battle, but BMW will undoubtedly win the clash. Even if the XE is the better car, the BMW 3-Series will sell more.

I also think that white is not the most flattering color for the XE. It looks much better in other colors.

I wouldn't mind... I hope the XE is a big success for Jaguar, but I also hope that the majority of fleet drivers will choose for the A4/C/3.... keeping our cars as special as the should be

No doubt about that... the 3 series owns this segment, at least for now and for some time to come. Not sure what it will take for the runner up's to take it over.

Do you think that Jaguar wants to have less volume than some of its competitors in order to be a more exclusive brand, or do you think that Jaguar would choose to move a ton of volume if it had the option?

Why would they want to do that with how they're expanding their line up with more models?

So volume then?

Jaguar is just a smaller company so there are different strategies they could take. The upcoming models would seem to point towards volume though.
