Jaguar's entry-level sedan has been caught while undergoing testing at the Nürburgring.

An official announcement regarding the company's new entry-level sedan will be made next month at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show when Jaguar will also reveal plans for a crossover. Both models will utilize the Premium Lightweight Architecture (PLA) and will be out in the second half of 2015, with production taking place at the Land Rover factory in Solihull, England.

A prototype of the entry-level sedan (likely to be called XS or XE) can be seen in this video wearing the body of the larger XF but with shortened doors, modified roofline, rear deck lopped off, lowered headlights and a different exhaust.

The baby Jaguar is likely to feature a 4-cylinder, 2.2-liter diesel offered with 163 HP (120 kW) and 200 HP (147 kW), together with a V6 3.0-liter diesel rated at 240 HP (177 kW). A turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline mill with 240 HP (176 kW) is also a possible candidate, along with a more powerful supercharged V6 3.0-liter delivering 340 HP (250 kW).
