Jaguar is considering an XE family expansion by adding wagon and coupe derivatives in the following years.

With the all-new XE, Jaguar wants to compete with its German compact rivals on all fronts so it comes as little surprise that XE chief program engineer Nick Miller told CarAdvice wagon and two-door coupe body styles are being considered. He says at first Jaguar will focus on the sedan but chances are in 2015 and/or 2016 additional versions will be added, including the rumored range-topping SVR variant allegedly coming in 2016 with an F-Type V8 S-sourced supercharged V8 5.0-liter with 489 bhp (364 kW).

Nick Miller also confirmed the C-X17 concept will eventually receive a production version with a different name that hasn't been decided yet. Most likely the crossover will be offered in both four- and five-seat versions as previewed by the several concepts exhibited at various auto shows. Sharing the same iQ[Al] platform with the baby sedan, Jaguar's crossover will likely be introduced in the second half next year or in 2016.
