The F-Type is going to be the car by which all Jags are measured, and already the Brits have started work on the next big thing after that. Under the internal code name X760, Jaguar has begun to develop the successor for the X-Type.
Summer of 2010 was full of news about an X-Type heir to combat the 3 Series that would be wrapped around a modular aluminum platform. That, however, appears to run contrary to Autocar's assessment that The car's closest conceptual rivals in the showroom are expected to be the upcoming Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz CLC small saloons.
What's more, the mag asserts it will be motivated by not just 1.8- and 2.0-liter four cylinders, but also a 1.5-liter three-cylinder. Styling remains a mystery, but rumors suggest the car will be extremely aerodynamic with a number of 'premium' styling features. Inside, the cabin is expected to be high-tech with an emphasis on connectivity and large LCD displays.
