Jaguar announces new sports saloon

A NEW Jaguar sports saloon, the XF, will make its public debut next autumn. Positioned in the luxury mid-size segment, the new Jaguar XF will replace the S-Type saloon in the Jaguar model line-up.

Designed and developed at Jaguar’s product development centre at Whitley in Coventry, UK, the new Jaguar XF will be built at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham.

'The Jaguar XF is a new sports saloon that will challenge people to think again about Jaguar as daring and different,' said Bibiana Boerio, Jaguar Cars’ managing director.

'Our new XK sports car has been very well-received and is enjoying great success. We are now moving on to the next stage of Jaguar’s exciting new design era.'

No pictures of the new car have yet been released.

Customer deliveries of the new Jaguar XF will commence in spring 2008, dependent on market. The Jaguar S-Type, which is replaced by the new Jaguar XF, made its public debut in 1998 prior to going on sale in 1999. Since launch, globally around 270,000 S-Types have been sold.
