New Jaguar XE will be armed with aluminium
It's the biggest make-or-break ever at Jaguar since its remarkable
turnaround the past few years. The company has had great success with its
sedans & sports cars holding their own against counterparts from the German
three. But now its going to get into the volumes segment with the XE, and
take on the mighty 3 Series, C-Class and A4. It's the new all-aluminium
architecture that's spearheading this plan. We travel to Jaguar HQ, and
bring you some exclusive details.
