Behold the face of the 2016 Jaguar XE-S. Also: Scottish recording artist Emeli Sandé.

Autoblog reports the sports sedan will be launched in early September through a sound + vision extravaganza called FEEL XE. Sandé will be kicking off the festivities in a secret location near the Thames, with influence from social media from now until September 8 deciding the direction of the extravaganza. Fashion designer Stella McCartney and actor Idris Elba will also be a part of the promotion through separate projects.

As for the XE-S itself, it may possess under the bonnet either a turbocharged variant of the new Ingenium 2-liter four-cylinder engines, or the 3-liter supercharged V6 from the F-Type S. The XE range as a whole will feature aluminum throughout 75 percent of its architecture, and may be the most fuel-efficient Jaguar ever built to date once official numbers are revealed.

    Hmm, looks like a slightly smaller XF.

      Yup, that seems to be the sum of it.

      Also, it gives away virtually nothing new, since all of this could be made out in the previous photo that was available…

      I like how they put her in boring, blocky clothes so as not to draw attention from the car.

      Also, some fool parked that car so you can’t even close the garage door! That’s no way to park.

        Emily Sandé may need an introduction for some of our American cousins.

        She was the only female vocalist to participate in the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony, singing ‘Abide With Me’ during a performance interlude that (unofficially) commemorated the victims of the bombings in London on 7 July 2005 (the day after London won the right to host the Summer Olympics).

        NBC didn’t want that kind of a downer, so substituted an interview with Michael Phelps.

        Here’s the segment. It certainly silenced the pub I watched it in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jj2LqGvKsLw

    The lower black plastic mesh bumper inserts need some chrome doodads or fog lights or SOMETHING to dress them up, looks kinda cheap otherwise.

    Is that really what they should be knocking off?

    Fortunately, the Jaguar range looks better in the metal than they do in pictures.

    I like the look although some might say it’s not as exciting as a Jag should be. But in a way I don’t think it will matter one jot because it looks to me like Jag have focused more heavily on the engineering. I’ve got a feeling it will be tremendously quick and nimble whilst also very fuel efficient and luxurious.

    The price point is higher than that of a 3 series so I think Jag are aiming to cream off the type of 3 series owner that spends on accessories and makes BMW most of their money. All in all I see a rather clever plan shaping up here and it may just work.
