Development work continues on the 2015 Jaguar XE as our spies have caught the model undergoing testing in Scandinavia.

Recently teased at the Geneva Motor Show, the entry-level sedan will follow in the footsteps of the XF and adopt a stylish exterior with a familiar front fascia. The rear end is heavily camouflaged but the sedan will have a sporty roofline and a relatively high trunk.

Under the hood, we can expect an assortment of four-cylinder Ingenium engines that will be available in a "wide range of capacities and outputs, all delivering inspirational performance and offering the latest innovations in fuel-efficient technologies without sacrificing drivability."  The engines will allow for speeds in excess of 300 km/h (186 mph) and CO2 emissions lower than 100 g/km. Despite the focus on four-cylinder engines, this particular prototype was reportedly equipped with a 3.0-liter V6.

The Jaguar XE will be unveiled later this year and sales are slated to begin in mid-2015.
