If we are to believe the reasoning behind the delay of the baby Jag, esentially that the dimensions/spec would make it too close to the XF so the XF has to be revamped first to save it from being killed off. Would that not then push the XF closer to the XJ and potentially kill that off.
I have a feeling that the new (Next Gen) XF is going to be pushed out of my reach, i.e. a substantial price hike to match the increase in size/spec, but may leave a very large gap between the baby Jag and the XF in pricing.
If I was to liken it to Audi or Mercedes for instance then currently the XF is percieved to compete with the A6 and E-Class respectively.
In the future it may rise into the neiche markets of the A7 and CLS, so what then competes with the A6 and E-Class if the baby Jag is to compete with the likes of say the A4 or C-Class.
Its a balancing act that I don't envy, hats off to Jaguar if they can pull it off.
