  • 2017 Jaguar XE looks to challenge BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class
  • XE will offer 340-hp supercharged V6; other engines not known
  • Latest Jag will go on sale in early 2016 as a 2017 model

Jaguar has officially unveiled an all-new model destined to reach the U.S. market in less than 2 years. Dubbed the XE, the new Jag will contend with popular luxury cars such as the BMW 3 Series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A4.

On the outside, the new XE incorporates a wide range of Jaguar styling cues, from the brand's well-known grille design to an overall profile shared with the larger XF. The look is pared down to a smaller size, with dimensions likely rivaling other entry-level luxury models.

Inside, the XE is also all Jaguar, sporting the brand's corporate steering wheel and its well-known rising gear lever. There's also a center-mounted touchscreen, a push-button starter, and high-end trim that ranges from aluminum to piano-black -- including red accents on the seats and door panels.

Although Jaguar has not yet announced the XE's engine lineup, the automaker says that top-end models will use a 340-horsepower 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Capable of propelling the car to 60 miles per hour in under 5 seconds, the engine will be mated to a standard 8-speed automatic transmission. Other engines will likely include a base-level 4-cylinder and -- in European models, at least -- a diesel variant.

While the XE goes on sale next year in the U.K., American shoppers won't be able to buy the sedan until 2016 -- when it will arrive as a 2017 model. Check back for more information as we draw closer to the sedan's launch date.

What it means to you: The 2017 Jaguar XE brings a new challenger to the growing luxury-car segment.
